As for the aforementioned drama between Icewear Vezzo and Eminem, Vezzo told HipHopDX: "For us, it was like Eminem was out of touch, so he wasn't anybody we could actually relate to. We were never in touch with Eminem. In the hood, in our ghettos and shit, back when he first came out, yeah, [Eminem] was like a hero for us. So we expected to see him, to be able to touch him, and we're like 'yeah we got somebody that got out from Detroit. This about to go down, he opened the gates up.' But it didn't go that way." Instead, he praised Eminem's longtime collaborator, Royce Da 5'9".

Icewear Vezzo later clarified that he respects Eminem and didn't intend to diss him during an appearance on The Breakfast Club. "At the end of the day, it was misunderstanding," Vezzo said at the time. "As a fan, I love Eminem music. I grew up listening to Eminem when I was a shorty. I got real love for Royce. One thing about Royce is, he's always show love to us, always supports us. He always shouted out. He does everything he can to help us out. He really do. I can't take that away from Royce. But shit, it is what it is. We don't know Eminem. We don't know hommie. I don't know anybody that ever met him. Ever seen him."
