Producer: Bass Brothers, Eminem
Album: The Marshall Mathers LP
Label: Aftermath/Interscope
Back in the day, there were some people who felt Marshall Mathers would never be shit. Well, when Mr. Mathers became The Shit, he decided to write a little song for them, and as an added bonus, the whole world would listen. Backed by amplified acoustic guitar strumming and some catchy "singing" by guess who on the hook, the title track to the album some argue is his best long player unloads his dirty laundry for all to peep (The line "Now everybody's so happy and proud/I'm finally allowed to step foot in my girlfriend's house" is instantly recognized by anyone whose been in one of those relationships where the family doesn't like the significant other). On a roll, getting payback, M. Mathers takes time to roast pop and rival rap groups as well, making you LOL at his mockery of LFO and ICP. Revenge never sounded so good.
