This is About Eminem and Dr. Dre
When Dre hits the studio and Eminem grabs the mic, magic happens.
Fans are here for it every time. History writes that Dre’s been a massive force in Em’s career. He’s been there from the very beginning. In an earlier interview, Eminem said this of his mentor and partner,
“It’s an honor to work with Dre, and now, I’m past the honor stage. Now it’s like, we developed–it’s more than a business, a friendship now.” – Eminem.

Dre needed Em as much as Em needed him. As the 2017 article in Hotnewhiphop relays.

So, Dre. hit up EM.
As a funny side note, “The Hood Surgeon” didn’t even realize Mather’s real identity upon reaching out,
The Doctor (Dre that is) is noted as once saying,
“When I heard Em for the first time, I didn’t even know he was White. I just knew I wanted to work with him.”
This proves, once and for all, that talent is talent and certainly colorless.
From then, as the world knows, things were a wrap. Dre, the predecessor, and Eminem the lyrical Killah’s partnership was cemented as hip-hop magic.
Dre and Eminem’s Path
A source notes, Dre was on board for Eminem’s signature banger “My Name is,” a hit that certified Marshall Mather’s as the incomparable hip-hop artist he is. The duo has been like partners in crime since.
