When Benzino and hip-hop magazine the Source responded to his disses by digging into his past and finding a tape where he said something racist about black women, did he diss them back? No... rather, he sued them for defamation of character, got millions of dollars, and Benzino and David Mayes got fired from the Source, which lost almost all credibility. That said, Em did diss Benzino a few times, most notably with "Bully", "The Sauce" and "Nail in the Coffin" - and all three songs are downright brutal.
Much of Hell: The Sequel for showcasing how fast Em can rap. The album also shows that, despite—or perhaps because of—Eminem sobering up, his Slim Shady persona is now in top form, in all its hilarity and craziness.
Carrying out the very complicated multi-syllable rhyme scheme for the entire first verse of "3 AM".
You're walking down a horror corridor
It's almost four in the morning and you're in a nightmare, it's horrible
Right there's the coroner, waiting for ya
To turn the corner so he can corner ya, you're a goner, he's onto ya
Out the corner of his cornea, he just saw ya run
All ya want is to rest cause you can't run anymore, you're done
All he wants is to kill you in front of an audience
While everybody is watching in the party, applauding it
Here I sit while I'm caught up in deep thought again
Contemplating my next plot again, swallowing a Klonopin
While I'm noddin' in and out on the ottoman
And it keeps going from there.
On the more emotional side of awesome, the lines in "Cold Wind Blows" where God is talking to Slim Shady may well send a chill down your spine:
"This is for your sins, I cleanse you You can repent, but I warn you, If you continue To Hell I send you" And just then, the wind blew
"Renegade" in general is a crowning moment of awesome. It's the only guest spot on "The Blueprint", he blows Jay-Z out of the water so bad, that to this day people assume it's Em's song featuring Jay-Z, and it set Marshall on the fast track to be considered one of the G.O.A.T.
Speaking of guest spots, there's also his spot on Drake's"Forever". Skip to 4:50 for his part. Eminem has one verse on a song with Drake, Kanye West and Lil Wayne and manages to outshine them all. Em's verse was so good that there's rumours the other rappers rewrote their parts to try and match him, and he still beat them.
One line in "Sing For The Moment" where Em gives one argument that kills one huge criticism of him.
