Eminem Resurfaces on Trick Trick LP Along With Dr. Dre, Kid Rock

January 28, 2008 3:35 PM ET

Eminem, Dr. Dre and Kid Rock will all appear on rapper Trick Trick's new album The Visitor. Eminem will make a rare cameo on The Villian track "Who Want It." Talking about the supposedly-now-obese Slim Shady, Trick Trick told MTV "He picked up a little weight. He can still run two miles if you want him to and still out-box the majority of them." Em's old mentor Dr. Dre also contributes, producing the song "Hold On," while the last-ever verse recorded by D-12 member Proof, who was killed in 2006, appears on "Together Forever." Of course, no Detroit album is complete without Kid Rock, who also features on "Together Forever." Now if only Trick Trick could get the White Stripes and Rip Hamilton involved, he'd have all his Detroit-related bases covered.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
