Eminem, "So Bad" (2010)

After producing most of Eminem's poorly received Relapse, Dr. Dre was largely absent for the Detroit rapper's 2010 comeback Recovery. However, he (and co-producer Nick Brongers) worked on "So Bad," a deep cut gem that didn't get widespread attention until it was used in the Despicable Me 3 ad campaign this year. The track is a vintage Dre head-nodder, from Brongers' buoyantly operatic strings, horns harp-like effects to deep bass drums and Sean Cruse's wah-wah guitar licks. Like much of Eminem's sobering, cathartic self-analysis on Recovery, "So Bad" finds him unpacking his pop culture reputation as a misogynist dog, and rapping about how he loves 'em and leaves 'em.
