Nightmares

Album: At Your Inconvenience (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This DJ Khalil produced track finds Green teaming up with Eminem's Bad Meets Evil partner Royce da 5"9. Speaking to Digital Spy, Green admitted that he didn't expect the American Hip-Hop star to collaborate with him on this tune. The hook-up came about after East London MC exchanged a verse on a song that he was working on with New York City rapper Papoose. He explained: "I reached out to Royce and didn't expect him to get back to me, but he did. I didn't get to record it with him as he's on the other side of the ocean, but he sent his verse over. He sent me a track over for Papoose, which I've just done a verse for. That's the most organic way to do it."
  • The song also features the voice of Kobe Honeycutt, an American singer who also appeared on Eminem's "Talkin' to Myself ." The track from Slim Shady's 2010 album Recovery was also produced by DJ Khalil.
