It’s late as shit and my kid’s up with a fever, so understand that I’m taking the time to bring this new Eminem track to you for the simple fact that it rocks the fuck out. Like Consequence Of Sound pointed out when they turned us on to this shit in the first place (credit!), this is perhaps the most star-powered jam of the year (that doesn’t include Kanye).
Eminem, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Stat Quo, and Cashis all appear, and while the chorus is questionable and the track runs about two guests too long, it’s nice to hear some of the chief sluggers in the game throwing some random jams out, with a specific narrative direction.
Pay close attention to the lyrics, particularly at the onset. Don’t be deceived by the initial damnations of lyrical content – as Em showed us a few months ago, he’s a rocket surgeon with a pen, paper and mic. Both he and Jay-Z turn in rock solid verses, and while Dre does his standard posturing, Fiddy actually didn’t make us cringe. That counts for something, right?
