HBO's four-part documentary mini-series The Defiant Ones has led to some revelations regarding some of music's biggest names. Dr. Dre and Eminem have had no shortage of coverage over the past two decades, including the story of their first day working together.

What begins as a funny detail about Eminem showing up to his first meeting with Dre in a bright yellow jumpsuit quickly turns revelatory as the good Doctor describes taking Mr. Mathers into his home studio. Sitting back in the lab, the first beat Dre put on instantly had Em saying along with it "My name is, my name is" and Dre knew a massive hit was on his hands.

More details on the Dre and Eminem sessions are expected on The Defiant Ones' finale, airing tonight on HBO.
