After the release of “Chloraseptic” remix a lot of people think that Eminem’s verse is the best verse he has written for ages so we decided to make an article about his one of the craziest verses since 2010, but we are only listing guest verses for two reasons. First, to shorten the areal of choice. Eminem has released probably 70-80 songs since 2010 and it is pretty hard to choose which one should be in top five. Second, Eminem usually goes harder on featured verses.
Check the list below and tell us in the comments what song should (or should not) be on the list:
5. 50 Cent – “My Life,” featuring Eminem. (2012)
Back in 2013, one of his interviews 50 Cent said: ““It is important to pay attention because it will turn into a complete Eminem record if you leave him. He is going to make it his regardless. This is how that verse got longer than usual on ‘My Life’.” You might not be surprised how the verse made it into the Top five after all.
In the song Eminem raps: “S**t, I almost wish that I would have never made Recovery, kid because I am running in circles with my life.” And this is what his core fans wished too. Not me, even though I am a huge fan of his older stuff.
4. Tech N9ne – “Speedom (WWC2),” featuring Eminem & Krizz Kaliko (2015)
Back in 2015, the long-awaited Eminem and Tech N9ne collaborative track has finally happened (not counting the star studded “Anthem”). In many of his interviews, Tech has stated that Eminem ‘absolutely murdered the track.’ There is also a viral video of Tech Nine reacting to Eminem’s verse on the net. The song marks Eminem’s one of the fastest verses he has ever spat.
3. YelaWolf – “Best Friend,” featuring Eminem (2015)
Eminem has no mercy when it comes to murdering MCs who are featured on a song, even if the MC represents his own label, or even if he is his best friend. While Yelawolf calmly approaches the beat with a more spiritual tone, Eminem goes into full aggressive mode, spitting more than sixteen bars as he usually does. This is also the only song on “Love Story” album with a feature, and marks Em’s first release in 2015.
2. Busta Rhymes – “Calm Down,” featuring Eminem (2014)
While so called hop hop heads bashed the instrumental of the song, the verses were pure flames in this one. Back in 2014, Busta said: “I was expected him to send sixteen bars as it is a standard but he did sent me much longer. 44 bars or something. So I said to myself ‘No Em, you can not do this to me on my own record’ so I rewrote the verse. Longer verse.” Listen below and judge yourself:
1. Dr. Dre – “Medicine Man,” featuring Candice Pillay, Anderson .Paak & Eminem (2015)
The song is one of the last songs that made into Dr. Dre’s Compton album and thank God it happened. Eminem’s verse here is arguably the best verse in the recent years. In 2015, Anderson .Paak said: “When Eminem send his verse. It was just like Christmas but we had to re-create the song completely cause his verse was too crazy. He was going back and forth and we had to find the correct tone for it. He is lyrical genius.”
In the song Eminem raps: “I even make the b**ches I r*pe cum.” Even though the track was well received musically, the song caused lots of controversy for Eminem’s r*pe lyrics. Karen Ingala Smith, chief executive of the London based charity Nia Project, which supports women and girls who have experienced men’s violence, said that: “Eminem had parroted a line designed to dis-empower victims of s*xual violence.”
