30 Rap Artists Talk About Their Favorite Eminem Song, Album, and Moment Image via Bet

Buckshot

Favorite Song: "I have a few of them. 'Lose Yourself,' because that shit is crazy. 'Lose Yourself' is the way most of us feel. You got to take advantage of everything right now. This is what it is. And 'The Real Slim Shady.' It came at the perfect time. You had the half the world walking around looking like Eminem. I can imagine him being the Eminem himself, he can't walk outside and not see nobody that's not like you. I got muthafucks rapping like me, looking like me. I got a hundred million fans. What the fuck is going on?"

It was almost like the microphone was smoking after what I just saw. This was early Eminem, so you can imagine, the mic was on fire.

Favorite Album: "I can't say. I'm an album person. But at the same time, I'm a song person. Then I'm an artist myself, so it makes it even harder because I'm really into this niggas shit. I'm not one of those people that's single bound that say, 'I only like this. I only like that album.' Let me tell you something, Em is my dude because he is one of the best entertainers. Period. He's not just a rapper. Rap is something he do. He's an artist."

Favorite Moment: "My favorite moment of Eminem is when I was heading the Lyricist Lounge. I'm sitting in between this girl legs. I'm about to go on stage and I'm just sitting looking at this dude and I'm like, 'Yo, this muthafucka is literally setting this house on fire. If there is any room for me when I get on stage, I'm good.' It was almost like the microphone was smoking after what I just saw. This was early Eminem, so you can imagine, the mic was on fire. The whole crowd was on fire. It was purely off wording. It was purely off of tearing ass off the mic.

"It was a battle, I don't remember who he was going against. I don't remember nothing else except for Eminem with that mic on stage literally going bonkers, everyone was going bonkers. I said, 'This dude is going to be one of the biggest problems in hip-hop history if they let him in that gate.' Like a boxer, I already knew what his skills was. Next thing you know it was on. The only thing I'm thinking is, 'I got to go on after this nigga?'"
