Hip Hop Hype
Favorite Eminem Songs
When an artist is about to drop a new album, you tend to go back and listen to their discography to get your self excited for their new release. With Eminem dropping The Marshall Mathers LP 2 on November 5th, that’s exactly what I did. For me, Eminem is one of those rappers that I don’t listen to on a consistent basis. I know he is a brilliant songwriter and his material is what I grew up on, but he is one of those rappers I take for granted.
I can remember when my parents bought me the clean version of The Eminem Show when it came out in 2002 and I played that CD in my room relentlessly. I was drawn to the beats and the flow of his rhymes, but since I was only 11 at the time, I wasn’t able to comprehend his lyrical complexity nearly as much as I do now. As I’ve grown older though, my appreciation for him has grown immensely. Like I previously stated, leading up to the release of The Marshall Mathers LP 2 I went back and listened to his entire solo catalog. And with that, I have picked some of my favorite tracks to share with you. Without further ado, here are my favorite Eminem tracks by album.
Infinite: W.E.G.O., 313, Never 2 Far
The Slim Shady LP: My Name Is, If I Had, My Fault, Bad Meets Evil
The Marshall Mathers LP: Stan, The Way I Am, The Real Slim Shady, Remember Me?
The Eminem Show: White America, Drips, Sing For The Moment, ‘Till I Collapse
Encore: Like Toy Soldiers, Mosh
Relapse: 3 a.m., Beautiful
Recovery: Going Through Changes, No Love, Almost Famous
The Marshall Mathers LP 2: Bad Guy, Rhyme Or Reason, Rap God, So Far…, Love Game
