Producer: Eminem, Luis Resto
Album: Encore BONUS
Label: Aftermath/Interscope
Eminem gets nice and loose on the boom-bap tip on "Ricky Ticky Toc," taking it back to the banging-on-the-lunchroom-table days. "I been rompin' since Tim Dogg was hollerin' 'Fuck Compton'/I was whylin', freestylin' back when they was still makin' Maxell cassettes/I wasn't even rap's Elvis yet." Say what you want about him (we advise you think twice about it, though), but you can't question Eminem's past—he paid dues for real.
