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

Favorite Song: "I'm gonna have to say 'Rock Bottom.' It's just incredible how he opened up his world and all the things he was going through at that time-before all the shit went down. I come from a completely different background, but the way he put that record together-it's like I could completely relate to and see everything that he was going through. Also the beat is sick, it's a flip of a Janis Joplin record—which not a lot of people know."

When he went to give his speech, a bunch of pills fell out of his pocket and I thought that was hilarious.

Favorite Album: "I'm gonna have to say The Slim Shady LP. Even though The Marshall Mathers LP was just a little bit stronger musically and production-wise—there is nothing like that first album. Every parent was ducking for cover, doing everything within their power to make sure their kids were not listening to The Slim Shady LP. I sure as fuck was doing everything within my power to listen to it. I sure did, and then some I suppose."

Favorite Moment: "I think it was when he won Best New Artist at the VMAs. When he went to give his speech, a bunch of pills fell out of his pocket and I thought that was fucking hilarious. Everyone was seeing him for the first time and he came out like that-spilling pills out of his pocket. That was fucking genius. I'm sure that was staged, but that shit is fucking...you know, his sense of humor has always been really a huge part of what he does. The thing I love about him is like what he's feeling on a record, you feel after you listen to it. If he's angry, you're gonna get angry too. He's got a great way of changing people's moods to understand what he's talking about."
