Silkk The Shocker Explains Why No Limit Passed On Eminem & India Arie

Master Prevealed that No Limit at one time debated whether to sign Eminem and T.I. during the raucous label’s 1990s pinnacle. In a separate  interview with HipHopDX, Silkk The Shocker elaborates on those discussions and adds that No Limit also considered bringing India Arie over to The Tank. 

“I know that we was cool with T.I.,” Silkk tells HipHopDX exclusively. “Eminem for sure. One other person that we were really close to signing was India Arie. She came to the office and we were about to [sign her]. We just didn’t know what to do with her, but we knew she was talented. And we knew Eminem was super talented. We just didn’t know how to make that transition with a white rapper. But hey, we messed up on that one. We definitely was close to signing Eminem and India Arie. I know P was close with T.I. I wasn’t a part of that conversation. But definitely those two. We just didn’t know what to do with them.”

Silkk says that they first met Eminem in Los Angeles and that they were also close to recording a track with the Detroit emcee. 

“We didn’t get the full gist of him but he had talent then,” he says. “He was nice. I can see him being on “No Limit Soldiers.” Eminem showed love. We met Eminem out here in [Los Angeles]. He respected No Limit and we respected him. We were really close to doing a song with him. Much love to Eminem.”
