Like any sane individual, I didn’t watch the BET Awards and I knew that anything worth seeing would pop up online later. Sure enough, the video that had Twitter going crazy and everyone professing their love for Eminem is here in all its explicit glory.
Em’s verse is bananas and it’s funny to hear him rhyme over East Flatbush Project’s “Tried By 12” beat almost 15 years after he was killing the Rap Olympics over similar records, but like any moment that gets SO much hype…I just instinctively have a little bit of a “meh” reaction. Don’t get me wrong, every rapper here is dope and spits crazy, but there’s just so many bars upon bars upon bars upon bars for me. I would have spazzed about this in 2000, but now, it’s cool…plus, it’s a great look for lyrics to actually be highlighted on a network like BET.
Well done 2.0 Boys.
