With Eminem making a public appearance last night in New York City, the world is gearing up for the return of the Mighty Slim Shady. But in a bit of weird news, Cee Lo Green came out today and said he was hoping for an Em feature on Goodie Mob’s new album Age Against The Machine. Sitting down with MTV‘s RapFix Live, Cee mentioned a song called “White Power” on the Atlanta trio’s forthcoming LP, and admitted that he was initially hoping to get a guest verse from Em for the track. He said, “It had gotten out to the press and I just thought that it made a bold statement so I thought that Eminem would easily jump at the controversy being that I heard he had been gearing up to do a new record and getting ready to get back out and fight.” Unfortunately, the collab didn’t come about though: “I was just as a fan, really anticipating what he could do it. I don’t know for whatever reason we weren’t able to do it. I would’ve really liked to see it happen, but it did make the record though.”
