We're back with compiling every Eminem feature throughout the course of his career. This week we tackle the years 2006 until 2009.
Eminem is one of the most prolific performers to ever get behind a mic, with his acute lyricism present in both polished studio tracks and off-the-cuff freestyles. The SoundScan Artist of the Decade with 32 million albums sold in the past 10 years, Em has revelled in both critical and commercial success since the release of his 1996 debut album, Infinite. Revered for his lyrical acrobatics and unrelenting flow, Rolling Stone's "King of Hip Hop" boasts talent that translates into record-breaking album sales. Eminem is the best-selling artist of the 2000s in the United States, with 10 number-one albums on the Billboard 200 and five number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 - marking Slim as the sixth best-selling artist in the United States and the best-selling hip-hop artist.
The continued success of hip hop's reclusive genius stems from both a deep devotion to his craft and Em's unmistakable, innate talent (he can rhyme anything with orange!) “The writing process, the way I go about it is I do whatever the beat feels like, whatever the beat is telling me to do," Em revealed of his track formation. "Usually when the beat comes on, I think of a hook or the subject I want to rap about almost instantly. Within four, eight bars of it playing I’m just like, ‘Oh, OK. This is what I wanna do’.” The rapper's dedication to his grind has resulted in an impressive discography, decorated with dozens of features - and everyone knows when Em hops on a guest spot, the track is his.
Some of his latest beat and lyricism madness was witnessed at this year's BET Awards where Eminem stepped back in the spotlight to deliver a chill-worthy cypher on his opinion of the U.S. President, Donald Trump.
“But we better give Obama props, ’cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust/And while the drama pops, and he waits for shit to quiet down/He’ll just gas his plane up and fly around until the bombing stops," Eminem rapped.
He's also featured on P!nk's track "Revenge" after receiving a drunk email from the singer. As for news on his own album, that we're all kind of patiently waiting for, rumours have been stirring that a project may be dropping on November 17th. With confirmed collaborations from Dr. Dre & 2 Chainz in the bag, it shouldn't be much longer until we got more than just a few features from Marshall Mathers.
Over the next few weeks, HotNewHipHop is going to revisit each and every guest appearance Slim Shady has taken part in during his lengthy career.
