35. OldWorlDisorder feat. Eminem, "3hree6ix5ive" (1998)

Before The Slim Shady LP, Eminem used the rap underground as a test audience for his new alter ego. One example features Skam, the Miami rapper-visual artist namechecked in "Stan," under the group moniker OldWorlDisorder. Here, Slim Shady adopts an Andre 3000 lyric – "I'm just releasing anger!" – as his modus operandi. Another particularly gleeful example comes toward the song's end: "I'll take it back before we knew each other's name/Run in the ultrasound and snatch you out your mother's frame/I'll take it further back than that, back to lovers' lane/To the night you was thought up and cock-block your father's game." In a MySpace interview, producer DJ Spinna remembers Em being "on point and quiet." Meanwhile, his barbs were becoming more distinctively violent and outrageous.
