There is a saying “If Eminem is featured in your song, it’s not your song anymore”. More or less, this is true. Eminem doesn’t care who you are, he will always try to murder you on your own songs, like he did to Jay Z’ on ‘Renegade’ , 50 Cent on ‘Patiently Waiting’, Drake on ‘Forever’ or lately Tech N9ne on ‘Speedom’ and Yelawolf on ‘Best Friend’.
This is to name a few. But here are listed three one of the biggest names in the rap game who changed their verses after hearing Eminem’s verse but still couldn’t outrap him:
1. Busta Rhymes (“Calm Down”)
Busta Rhymes: “No Em, you can’t do it on my own record. So I went back and added more bars.” Listen the interview with Sway In The Morning below:
2. Kanye West (“Forever”)
Kanye West: “When I heard Eminem’s verse on Drake’s siit, I went back and rewrote my siit for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I f**kin’ care.” Listen to the tape bellow:
3. 50 Cent (“My Life” & upcoming track “Champions”)
50 Cent: “It’s important because it will turn into a complete Eminem record if you leave him. He is gonna make it his regardless. This is how that verse got longer than usual on ‘My Life’ “. Watch the interview below:
