Album: The Eminem Show
Music is like magic, there's a certain feelin' you get
When you're real and you spit and people are feelin' your shit
"Till I Collapse" is Eminem's Rap Manifesto—his uncut views, attitudes, and fire. It's not a coincidence he chose this powerful hymn graced by the celestial voice of Nate Dogg and reinforced by the merciless sonic stampede that echoes like a legion of warriors heading into combat. Eminem has and always will be a battle rapper. "'Cause I don't really think that the fact that I'm Slim matters/A plaque and platinum status is wack if I'm not the baddest," he spits for everybody to hear. Eminem keeps trying to say that he doesn't want to be called the best (see his list below), just one of the best, but listen closely to this song. Sounds like he'd be down to challenge for the No. 1 spot.
