When this song was recorded, it was still a little bit unclear how well Shady Records as a whole was going to gel together. Sure, Eminem's first couple solo projects had turned him into a superstar. 50's debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin', had launched him into another stratosphere, too. And it appeared as though Obie Trice and G-Unit were going to be solid additions to the Shady team. But how would they all sound on the same track? This song answered that question decisively by proving that, despite their differences, Em, 50, Obie, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo all had one common goal: to push Shady to the forefront of rap.
