One thing is for certain: when Eminem gets on a beat, you better believe there won’t be anything sweet about it; especially if it’s a relationship track. Lloyd Banks recruits America’s favorite psycho for the iTunes bonus track, Where I’m At, off his freshly released Hunger For More 2 (out now). I have to admit: letting Em take the first verse probably wasn’t the best idea, as we all know Slim’s a beast. In fact, Banks trailing him on this beat is like a human attempting to sneak up behind a lion - not a good look. Even though the prince of G-Unit connects with his verse, filled with “B!+@#, I’m-good-without-you” lyrics, he seems like the featured artist rather than Em (and who else in the game has better misogyny lines than Marshall?). Mix that with production from Boi-1da and Em, doing double duty on the boards, which features the infamous Mr. Mathers’ snares and heavy strings, and you pretty much have a hard-shelled Shady record with no candied center. Hopefully Lloyd Banks makes better selections on future release from Hunger For More II. Not that it matters much. G-Unit is far from starving.
