Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas – Lucky You

I’ll be honest, it came as a total shock this week that Eminem has 10 albums releases (plus some compilations I think). I literally couldn’t name one after the Marshall Mathers LP, though it could be argued that says more about me than Eminem.

The point is, I would hear occasional tracks but nothing grabbed me. This is the first one to really make me stop and listen again. Part of that is Joyner Lucas, fast making a name for himself as one of the most exciting MCs in the game. When I first heard this tune, Eminem’s verse sounded forced, outdated and uncomfortable in comparison, I think now that I was judging way too harshly. There’s no denying that both emcees have put in the work and bring excessive amounts of skill and energy to the track. I’m glad it was seen fit to release as a single, it’s a much bigger tune than I would normally post here but just in case you’ve been similarly switched off to what Eminem’s been up to, I figured I should share.
