1. “From the D 2 the LBC,” Eminem featuring Snoop Dogg

Produced by Eminem

Eminem and Snoop Dogg have been on several songs together thanks to their mutual friend, the rap giant, Dr. Dre. But on this song, released in 2022, just the two of them linked up. Released as the second single from Em’s greatest hits album, Curtain Call 2, this track features a beat that bridges trap and opera. The music video includes cartoon drawings and Snoop smoking a giant blunt. What’s not to like?

2. “Godzilla,” Eminem featuring Juice Wrld

Produced by Eminem, D. A. Doman

On this song, the iconic rapper links up with the phenomenon that was the singer Juice Wrld, who sadly passed away in 2019 from a drug overdose at just 21 years old. The big, bombastic beat serves the two seemingly different artists well, providing a springboard for their vast talents. Released in 2020 on the Eminem album, Music to Be Murdered By, the song was the first to be released featuring the singer after Juice Wrld’s death.

3. “Thugs Get Lonely Too,” 2Pac

Produced by Eminem

Released in 2004, this song by 2Pac (or Tupac Shakur) was part of his album, Loyal to the Game, which was released eight years after his death. Produced by Eminem, it includes the iconic rap hook singer Nate Dogg. But the song also dates back to the early ’90s when 2Pac wrote the verse for the recording sessions for his 1993 LP, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z

4. “Throw That,” Slaughterhouse featuring Eminem

Produced by T-Minus, Eminem

Released in 2012 on the album, Welcome to: OUR HOUSE, from the rap supergroup Slaughterhouse, this track includes a verse from Em and was released on his Shady Records. In the end, the track was the most successful single for the brash group, cracking the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 98. The beat includes Em’s signature percussive hits and high-pitched piercing melodies.
