30 Rap Artists Talk About Their Favorite Eminem Song, Album, and Moment Image via ThisIs50

Funkmaster Flex

Favorite Song: "I have to say 'Stan' is my favorite because I still listen to 'Stan' and wonder if there's going to be a different ending, I don't know. I swear, I catch something different in the song every time."

Favorite Album: "The first or second album. I really got favorite songs. But 'Stan,' that was the second album, right? Yeah."

I still listen to 'Stan' and wonder if there's going to be a different ending, I don't know. I swear, I catch something different in the song every time.

Favorite Moment: "To be honest, I really enjoyed the movie 8 Mile. You know why? Because he was OK with not being the cool kid. How many rappers or people you see in movies that would be OK with that? He was like 'OK, I'm going to get punched in my face here.' He was OK with that. How many rappers have you seen in movies who just play the image that they are? Maybe Will Smith, no disrespect to him but he was always an entertaining, non-hardcore rapper.

"For me, when I watched that movie for the first time, I'm sure some of it was true, some of it wasn't, but to be OK with all that [was dope]. Remember, that was before the Internet was crazy popping. He was OK with showing that. I thought it was cool. It's cooler to me now than when I was watching it because now I go, 'Damn a lot of other rappers didn't do that.' You remember 50 Cent's movie right? You know and I love 50, but I don't think 50 would've put himself in that type of a position. Would he? I think Em's movie would've been just as successful either way, but I like that he did that. I look at it now in 2014, I like it even more now because a lot of artists didn't do that."
