50 Cent taps both Adam Levine and Eminem for the lead single to his next LP, Street King Immortal, hitting in 2013. He and Adam perform that track, sans Eminem, on The Voice in the video clip below.

    I have mixed feelings about this track. For a 50 Cent song featuring a pop star, both the beat and 50′s performance are surprisingly solid, not amazing, but decent. A stellar Eminem verse could have elevated this song from ok to great (by radio standards at least). Em didn’t deliver though. The radio edit didn’t help matters, it fucked the flow up, but I’m really sick of hearing nothing but double time raps from Eminem. It’s getting about as redundant as the accents on “Relapse” at this point. All he seems to be good for these days is radio hook ready power rap ballads and mediocre guest verses. While I’m on the subject, Eminem might be the most over rated emcee in all of hip hop, and this is coming from a fan. Even when he was at his lyrical peak, his verses were often littered with silly/stupid subject matter and jabs at easy/irrelevant targets. Like I said, I’m a big fan of a significant portion of Eminem’s catalog, but the older I get, any discussion of him being the G.O.A.T. seems unfounded, especially given his recent output.

    Yeah Shady Records has really gone the Hip Pop route the past few years. Just peep Yelawolf’s LP and the new Skylar Grey single, which I’m sure will be posted here soon too. This is a radio friendly mediocre forgettable song. @Model Citizen I gotta say I agree with you in your assessment of Eminem. I have been a fan of his since The Infinite LP years before he was signed with Dr. Dre. I was the biggest supporter and pusher of his music in my area when everyone said, “yeah man it’s good but his subject matter is too crazy for the general public so this guy will never make it big.” Sure made many friends eat crow for doubting his star potential. I was instantly impressed with his sentence structure and word play. He was innovative with his rhyme schemes and I am always looking for impressive new art, Hip Hop or otherwise. His first 3 LPs were great, he then fell off but regained my fandom with Recovery. While recovery brought Eminem back to form lyrically I still think the music sounds overproduced and it’s not what I would actually consider a true Hip Hop LP it is a Pop music LP with rapping on it (no disrespect to Eminem with that statement but it doesn’t sound “Hip Hop” to me and that isn’t a bad thing it’s just not Hip Hop in the traditional sense). The Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf LPs were forgettable Hip Pop with a few bangers tossed in to try to reel in people like me but really focus on MTV/BET/Radio/Tweens/etc… Eminem’s efforts as a guest have been subpar on every song he’s done. It’s like either he tries too hard to be Pop or just doesn’t try at all and phones his effort in. Agreed that as I get older I am less interested in horrorcore/shock/disturbing imagery/goofy/etc… Kid directed songs and my appreciation for alot of Eminem’s music is waning. I will always give him his props for his writing techniques, style, sentence structure, flows, etc… But I find myself not that interested in him anymore. I would be interested however if he made a traditional sounding Hip Hop LP and had it entirely produced by cats like DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Buckwild, Marley Marl, Alchemist, Domingo, Beatnuts, etc… You get the picture. Hell even get down on an Apathy and/or Celph Titled produced tracks while he’s at it. It would be refreshing to hear him on that NYC/Boom Bap tip, I think it would bring out a different side to him… Just a thought.

    @Dayz “…Hip Hop LP and had it entirely produced by cats like DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Buckwild, Marley Marl, Alchemist, Domingo, Beatnuts,…” Any rapper with these producers…sounds dope though!
