10. "Bitch Please II" feat. Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Xzibit (2000)

Beyond some of the greatest collaborators of Dr. Dre's solo peaks perfectly complementing each other, "Bitch Please II" captures the brash undercard confidence that makes Em's unapologetic attitude so bracing. That take-me-or-leave-me armor works, in large part, because he constantly accents his cynicism with humor: his Snoop Dogg-tweaking opening lines and off-key Nate Dogg harmonizing envelope a stolidly serious Dre production in Em's waggish glee. At his core, Eminem wants you to see that he's just joking — "somewhere deep down there's a decent human being in me" — without sacrificing any of his music's outrageously rebellious spark and impact.
