Yezzir, it’s been a decade and a half since Dr. Dre discovered the white rapper from Detroit and introduced us to his brilliant and cunning verses. He also hooked us up with his alter-ego Slim Shady, a curse-spitting genius who eats controversies for breakfast.

Fifteen years later, Eminem still amazes us with his fast bars and lyrical supremacy. Who knows, maybe he's not really joking when he called himself a "Rap God."


The hip-hop legend recently released Shady XV to celebrate his label's. Shady Record, 15th founding anniversary. The hip-hop compilation album is headlined by Slim and Shady's past and present stars, including 50 Cent, D-12, and Royce Da 5'9".

Here's Eminem with a sample:
