Eminem and Skylar Grey make a good team. They first joined forces on 2010′s mega-selling “Love The Way You Lie”, which the Don’t Look Down diva penned, before reuniting on 2011′s top five smash “I Need A Doctor”. (They also worked on “C’Mon Let Me Ride” but, hey, everyone has a bad day.)
With a track record like that, it was a fairly safe bet that their latest collab — a charmingly titled tune called “Asshole” — would be a Marshall Mathers LP 2 highlight and it definitely stands out. Em puts the haters in check with rhymes like: “They told me to slow down, to zone out. Good luck trying to convince a blond it’s like telling Gwen Stefani she sold out”. (What’s with the retro references this era?)
That’s where Skylar comes in and delivers a truly memorable chorus. “Everybody knows so don’t pretend to be nice, there’s no place you can hide,” she sings. “You are just an asshole and everybody knows!” A lot of people can identify with that sentiment. Listen to the hip-hop/pop kiss-off after the jump.
