Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. f/ Eminem & B-Real "911" (2003)

Producer: Eminem
Album: West Koasta Nostra

Eminem isn't a gangsta rapper, but it was always kinda fun when he got a little gangsta. The early part of his career he wore the "only white guy in the room" chip on his shoulder like an anvil and instead played up the psychopath killer angle. But in the mid-2000s, once 50, D12, and Obie Trice had Shady Records in full effect, Em started feeling himself a bit more. Plus he started seeing the benefits of having so much damn money ("It's funny, I guess money does have its advantages"), to the point he could recklessly call out his enemies. No names are named on this song, but seeing as this track came during the height of the Benzino beef it's not hard to tell who this is aimed at. Thankfully, they never took it beyond wax. —Insanul Ahmed
