Album: 8 Mile
On the surface, this sounded like a song about love. The hook—"I just wanna love ya, for the rest of my life…"—was relatively non-threatening (minus the insane ad-libs) and the beat, which was produced by Eminem, didn't hit you over the head like a lot of Em's other productions did at the time. But the song didn't feature Obie Trice, Eminem, and 50 Cent rapping about love interests or being in love. Instead, the three turned the track on its head and rapped about why people should love them. Obie pointed out his never-ending grind, Em reflected on all of the characteristics that made him a unique MC, and 50, well, 50 name-dropped everyone from Lil' Kim to Ashanti in an effort to stir up shit. What's not to love about that?
