publish date: 2018-10-29
Illa Da Producer hopped on Instagram Live over the weekend to answer a few questions about Eminem. The accomplished beatsmith — who produced cuts on both Revival and Kamikaze — admits his favorite song on Em's Kamikaze is 'Good Guy' (which he crafted) and credits Shady for saving his life.
But, one of the most revealing comments involves the Bodied soundtrack. The battle rap film, which was executive produced by Em, is expected to hit theaters and YouTube Premium next month. According to Illa, the soundtrack arrives on Friday (November 2).
'I ain't spilling no beans,' he says in the clip. 'We'll see about that Bodied soundtrack. It's coming out Friday. 'You know if I've got one on there, it's gon' go crazy.'
In an interview with last December, Illa explained how he linked with the Detroit-bred rap behemoth.
“It was through Royce Da 5’9,” he said. “Because Royce Da 5’9 did a remix to the track I did with Phresher. I produced that ‘Wait A Minute’ track with PHresher. So Royce did a remix on it and Em loved his remix and was like, ‘Yo, what is that?' He said, ‘It’s this nigga PHresher’s song.’ Em’s like, ‘Alright, cool.’
'He found PHresher and found PHresher’s manager and was like, ‘Alright, now that I found PHresher, who did that beat?’ And PHresher’s manager; shoutout my man Jay Andino. He was like, ‘Oh I got you!’ Called me and then plugged me with Paul Rosenberg and Tracy [McNew] from Shady Records and then that’s how it went down.'
Illa also lent his talents to the Kamikaze track 'The Ringer,' which yielded plenty of attention due to Em's relentless bashing of rappers such as Lil Pump, Lil Xan and Lil Yachty.
