The 15 Best '99 Era Eminem Features/Guest Verses
The Greatest "Slim Shady LP Era" Eminem Features
Marshall Mathers was a hungry emcee in the late nineties. The raw and unique Slim Shady style is one of a kind. Here are some of the best cuts that Eminem was featured on.
"Dead Wrong" The Notorious B.I.G. Featuring Eminem (1999)
"He's ready for war, I'm ready for war / I got machetes and swords for any f***ot that said he was raw / My uzi's heavy as yours, yeah you met me before / I just didn't have as large an arsenal of weapons before / Marshall will step in the door, I lay your head on the floor / With your body spread on the bedspread, red on the wall / Red on the ceiling, red on the floor, get a new w**re / Met on the second, wed on the third, then she's dead on the fourth / I'm dead wrong"
This song is raw and gritty hip hop at it's finest. I don't believe Em and Biggie ever met in person, but this is a good example of what it would sound like if they created a track together.
"The Last Hit" The High & Mighty Featuring Eminem (1999)
"My nine is lifting ya, six feet when I spray rounds / Hit you with 12 shots in mid-air and four more on the way down / As eight strays graze through a kid's hair on the playground / You lay down on a stretcher (Don't get carried away now!)"
"Get Back" Tony Touch Featuring D12 (2000)
"Collapsed, had a relapse and called three cabs / And had to be dragged back to rehab wit bloody kneecaps / Enrolled myself in a twelve-step program / Tripped on the first step and got pinned down in a chokeslam"
"Hellbound" Masta Ace Featuring Eminem & J-Black (2000)
"I'll puke, eat it, and freak you (eww) / Battle? I'm too weeded to speak to! / The only key that I see to defeat you / would be for me to remove these two Adidas and beat you / and force feed you 'em both, and on each feet is a cleat shoe / I'll lift you off your feet so fast with a roundhouse / you'll think I pulled the f**kin ground out from underneath you"
"If I Get Locked Up" Funkmaster Flex & Big Kap Featuring Dr. Dre & Eminem (1999)
"I hate this straight jacket, It ain't latching and can't lock it / So they stapled my hand to my pants pockets."
"They don't know what the f**k it's like to be so fed up / And fed so many uppers you're down and won't get up."
An early cut from when Dre and Em first hooked up. Enjoy the '98 Shady sound.
"Forgot About Dre" Dr. Dre Featuring Eminem (1999)
"And when the cops came through, Me and Dre stood next to a burnt down house / With a can full of gas, and a hand full of matches, And still weren't found out! (right here!)"
A cut off the legendary album, Chronic 2001, this and a couple other songs were basically Dr. Dre's way of introducing the world to Em.
"Off The Wall" Redman Featuring Eminem (2000)
"Got a habit of holding Tylenol in his hands / Till it melts in his f**king palms and dissolves in his glands"
"Renegade" Jay-Z Featuring Eminem (2001)
"See I'm a poet to some, a regular modern-day Shakespeare /
Jesus Christ, the King of these Latter-Day Saints here /
To shatter the picture in which of that as they paint me as /
As a monger of hate, satanist, scatter-brained atheist /
But that ain't the case, see it's a matter of taste /
We as a people decide if Shady's as bad as they say he is /
Or is he the latter, a gateway to escape /
Media scapegoat; who they can be mad at today"
A dope song that was produced by Em as well. It originally featured Bad Meets Evil partner Royce Da 5'9, but he was taken off most likely due to the feud between him and D12 around the time. Or it may have just been because Shady wanted to work with Jay. Either way, both versions are dope.
"Stir Crazy" The Mad Rapper Featuring Eminem (2000)
"Shady said it, Shady meant it /
I stay demented /
I'll throw a stroller at you, with a baby in it."
"What's The Difference" Dr. Dre Featuring Eminem & Xzibit (1999)
"Raw dawg, get your arm gnawed off /
Drop the sawed off /
And beat you with the piece it was sawed off of /
F**k blood, I wanna see some lungs coughed up /
Get shot up in the hot tub 'til the bubbles pop up /
And they nose and cough snot up /
Mucus in hot water /
That's for trying to talk like "The Chronic" was lost product /
That's for even thinking of having them thoughts thought up /
You better show some respect whenever the Doc's brought up"
"Bus A Rhyme" Missy Elliot Featuring Eminem (1998)
"I'm homicidal and suicidal with no friends /
Holding a gun with no handle, just a barrel at both ends /
Spraying tecs at you until you see your f**king legs /
With the bullet holes and the exit wounds laying next to you /
F**king mad dog, foaming at the mouth /
F**k mouth, my whole house is foaming at the couch /
Jumped out of the 93rd floor of a building /
And shot every window out on the way down to the ground (keep filming!)"
"Don't Approach Me" Xzibit Featuring Eminem (2000)
"...Everyday I wake up, another drama /
It's a wonder I'm alive, surviving this karma /
If I can hold on to my private life for five minutes longer /
I might get my wife to let go of this knife and just calm her"
"The Anthem" Sway & King Tech (1999)
"This place is my house, I might as well erase my face with white out /
Cause y'all can't see me like Ma$e's eyebrows (where you at?) /
Climbed out of a nice house through the front window /
And heard this guy shout, "Hey that's my couch" /
Pull a nine out during a rhyme bout /
While I'm ripping this shit, put a clip in and spit five rounds /
And murder you hoes worse than a convertible flipping vertical /
Nose-first with the top off landing upside down"
This song features one legendary rapper after another. RZA, Tech N9ne, Eminem, Xzibit, Pharoahe Monch, Kool G Rap, Jayo Felony, Chino XL, and KRS-One. Incredible.
"5 Star Generals" Shabaam Sahdeeq Featuring A.L., Eminem, Kwest Tha Madd Lad & Skam
"Went to Bible class with a gun, blasted a nun /
F**k Hell, Satan sent my ass to the sun /
I wasn't born, I was hatched /
And dumped in the trash with a note attached /
Sayin' someone please whip this brat's ass /
I never gave a rat's ass or a flyin' f**k /
Drivin' drunk in a fire truck with the siren stuck /
Slammin' the brakes, skiddin' out cause the tires suck /
Went to pull you off my d**k and got the pliers stuck /
You better run cause I'm probably the only one /
Crazy enough to shoot your ass with a knife and stab you with a gun /
I like fire, you might see me start it /
I'm slightly retarded, I miss my sanity since the night we departed"
"Watch Deez" Thirstin Howl III Featuring Eminem (2000)
"Screaming at my shadow, "Please quit following me!!" /
These pills keep screaming, "Please quit swallowing me!!" /
The devil keeps screaming, "Please get down on one knee" /
I took the drugs before the cops ever found them on me"
"What The Beat" DJ Clue Featuring Method Man, Eminem & Royce Da 5'9 (2001)
"Believe me, there'll be just as many motherf**kin' murderers /
And heroin users without Marilyn's music /
But I figure I make my music I don't care if you use it /
To murder somebody, I just wanna be there when you do it /
Now the parents are suing cause little Darren is screwing /
Karen and Susan cause I told him to do it on Clue's new s**t"
