“I can remember every word to every rap song known to man,” he told Lyndsey Parker, host of New York’s Build Series, on Monday.
“But I lost my debit card last night. I can’t remember where I put my car keys, but I can remember every word to Notorious B.I.G’s “Big Poppa.”
The 37-year-old proceeded to rap a few verses from the rapper's hit "Juicy."
Owen also revealed his eclectic music taste, saying he might listen to Drake one day, “but then I’ll listen to J.D. Crowe & The New South bluegrass revival. It’s so weird. But I just love music. I love the way it makes me feel.”
Parker then asked Owen if he was a Nipsey Hussle fan and though the country singer said he didn’t necessarily “celebrate his catalog of music,” he did reflect on the loss of the rap artist to a shooting in Los Angeles on Sunday.
“It’s really sad to think that things like that are happening every day in our world, and have been for a very long time. It’s a bummer to lose somebody that’s influential to a lot of people,” Owen said.
Owen also said he had just collaborated with Lil Nas X, a rapper who combined elements of country music with his track “Old Town Road.”
The song, a rap/country crossover that juxtaposes Western and cowboy-themed imagery to a trap beat, debuted at No. 19 on Billboard’s Hot Country chart.
“Honestly, it brings me joy to be able to do things that are different,” Owen said.
