Eminem is already heralded as one of Hip Hop’s greatest artists of all time. The diamond-selling MC has broken numerous records throughout the course of his illustrious career and is consistently setting new ones.
His 2002 single “Lose Yourself,” for example, just surpassed one billion plays on Spotify — and that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
But producer Boi-1da thinks Slim Shady is severely underrated as a producer. On Thursday (November 5), the veteran beatsmith shared a TJAYwitter post that read, “Eminem doesn’t get enough credit as a producer, he has gems.”
When a fan noted Eminem produced “On Fire” by Lloyd Banks, “Moment Of Clarity” by JAY-Z, “Hennessy” by 2Pac and Obie Trice as well, Boi-1da replied, “Warrior Pt. 2 & Till the End” followed by a puking emoji.
The Detroit-bred “rap god” has producer credits on songs such as D12’s “Purple Pills” and 50 Cent’s “Many Men (Wish Death).” He’s also produced or co-produced many of his own songs, including “Superman,” “Guilty Conscience” and “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.”
Meanwhile, Boi-1da has crafted several beats for Slim Shady himself, including the Recovery tracks “Not Afraid” and “Seduction” and the Kamikaze cut “Lucky You” featuring Joyner Lucas. The 34-year-old producer is also an in-house producer for Drake’s OVO Sound label and has worked with Drake, Rihanna, JAY-Z, Nicki Minaj, Nas, and Kendrick Lamar, among others.
