The Definitive Eminem Song List (Part 3) #25-1

#25. No Love ft. Lil Wayne – I might be in the “minorty” when I say this, but I really liked Eminem’s “Recovery” album. It’s definitely not my favorite Eminem album, but it doesn’t deserve to be “sh*tted on” like it has been by the majority of rap fans…

#24. Infinite – The most “hip hop sounding” song in Em’s catalog, also happens to be one of his very best…

#23. Kim – I really can’t think of a more “disturbing” hip hop song then this track. “Bonnie and Clyde 97” is probably a close second, although that song is a bit more “comical”…

#22. Square Dance – If you want to hear a song that is both hilarious and menacing simultaneously this song “fits the bill”. Juelz Santana’s song “S.A.N.T.A.N.A.” is another hilarious/menacing track that you should check out if your enamored by this “style” of rap music…

#21. Rock Bottom – I like this line from this song…”I got a couple of rings and a brand new watch you want ’em? Cause I never went gold off one song. I’m running up on someone’s lawn with guns drawn.”… I think this is an “ironic” line considering how no rapper in hip hop history has ever  sold more “units” than Eminem. It definitely shows how rapidly Eminem’s ‘s life changed over the course of “that” year in particular…

#20. Mockingbird – I have a “feeling” that some people will complain about me putting “mockingbird” “low” on this list… Oh well…

#19. Role Model – Eminem is f#cking dope on this track!… “Yeah… Definitely definitely… Definitely dope… Definitely… Definitely K-Mart…“…

#18. I’m Back – Eminem must hold the “record” for the most “censored” uncensored songs in rap history. There were at least three “censors” in “uncensored” songs in the “Marshall Mathers LP” alone. Shady once said this… “F— money/ I don’t rap for dead presidents/ I’d rather see the president dead/ It’s never been said, but I set precedents.” #nofilter …

#17. Kill You – “B*tch I’m a kill you” is the “hook” on this song… Only in hip hop music (shakes head “back and forth” vehemently)…

#16. Evil Twin – Hello, is everyone paying attention right now?… Okay I’m going to get something off my chest… Lyrically… “This song”… Is better than… “Rap God” (drops the “mic”, and runs for “cover”)….

#15. Just Don’t Give a F*ck – The “carnival” style beat on this track is so “infectious” to listen to. I don’t even rap, but while listening this song even I had the “urge” to want to freestyle over this “beat” even though I barley have a grasp of the English language… This must be how most “mumble rappers” get started…

#14. Like Toy Soldiers – Eminem is no stranger to “rap beef”. Whenever you’re perceived as being “the guy” in hip hop some form of “rap beef” will general come packaged with it. Eminem recounts his own personal journey with “rap beef” in this track. Hearing how everything went down from Shady’s perspective is some pretty interesting stuff…

#13. Sing for the Moment – I really like the “Aerosmith” sample used here. Eminem was always good at using “old school” rock samples on his tracks. Eminem may be the only “great” rapper to never use a “soul” music sample in his rap music (don’t “quote” me on that). That’s a crazy thing to think about if you know the history of hip hop music at all…

#12. Marshall Mathers – In case you were wondering, this is my favorite Eminem song! The flow and “wordplay” on this track are nothing short of incredible IMO. I know Eminem has made a more “savage” record than this, but I think some of the “punchlines” contained in this song are legit “K.O.’s”…

#11. Business – Did Eminem just rhyme “hinges” with “oranges” and then “syringes”? That’s that “other other” sh*t right there…

#10. Who Knew – In my estimation this is the most underrated Eminem song of all time!  The way Eminem “transition’s” from line to line in “this song” in particular is nothing short of “awe inspiring”…

#09. Guilty Conscience ft. Dr. Dre – There’s not many “unique” hip hop songs out there, and this is definitely one of them. What song would you compare with this one?… That’s my point exactly…

#08. The Real Slim Shady – I don’t think this is a very good Eminem song. It’s too “pop” sounding for my liking. The reason I have this song at “number 8” though is because this song was a major “moment” in “pop culture” history. Eminem never thought he could ever make a song “bigger” then “My Name Is”, and he was wrong because this song was freaking HUGE. I can remember watching “TRL” everyday when I was nine years old, and this damn song would be “number 1” every single day. That’s probably the “real” reason why I don’t really care for this song that much… I had too much of an affinity for “Blink 182’s” music at the time… Just kidding… (I was like ten when that song came out)…

#07. Rap God – So my issue with this song is “where are the memorable lines”? Em’s flow is off the the charts on this track, but the subject matter is just “whatever”. It’s more reminiscent of a freestyle then an actual song, and that’s why I don’t have this song any “higher up” on the list. I respect the skill showcase, but I was hoping for more “substance” on this song…

#06. Cleanin’ Out My Closet – “Where’s my snare?”… That’s the first thing I think about when discussing this song. Did Marshall really have to leave that in?… Anyways, this is a very personal track in Slim Shady’s… Sorry but I’m very “OCD” when it comes to this rap sh*t, and that “Where’s my snare” part really f#cked with my head … You know what, I think I’m going to go to Eminem’s “Vevo page” on Youtube right now and write him a “scathing message” in the comment section of “this video” telling him “that all of his music is b#llshit” because he didn’t edit that “snare” part out… Yeah that will show him… Actually I just realized something… I’m satisfied with my life so I don’t really have a “desire” to “tear down” another person’s work like that… Oops… I think i just broke the 4th wall…

#05. ‘Till I Collapse ft. Nate Dogg – Adding Nate Dogg to the “hook” of your song in the 90’s/early 2000’s was a formula for instant success. He was like the “T-Pain” of his time period, although unlike “T-Pain” he was actually talented and offered something to the “culture”. R.I.P. to a real hip hop “legend”, his contributions to rap music shouldn’t be forgotten…

#04. My Name Is – The first “hit” song of Eminem’s career was one of his very best. No song is more “synonyms” with Eminem’s successful career then the song “My Name Is”…

#03. The Way I Am – During the “Marshall Mathers LP era” Eminem was without question at his very best. The “fire” that he came with on every track was unparalleled at that time in hip hop. No one was hungrier or wanted to win more than Eminem. Personally I’m a “bigger” Jay-Z  fan, but even I have to admit that Eminem was absolutely untouchable in that era…

#02. Lose Yourself – I think this would have to be considered the “biggest” hip hop song to come from a movie soundtrack ever. Dr.  Dre’s “Deep cover”, and Naughty by Nature’s “Hip Hop Hooray” also come to mind, but neither of those songs are on the same “level” as “Lose Yourself” IMO…

#01. Stan – This song was a fairly easy pick for me to put at “number 1”. Once in a great while a song will come out that will “transcend” a particular genre of music. Only a few examples of this happening in hip hop come to mind, and this is definitely one of those tracks. I can play this song for almost any “non rap” fan, and at very least that person will acknowledge that the song is “good” from a technical standpoint alone. They might not “enjoy” listening to the song per se, but at the very least they will respect it…
