Eminem – Like Toy Soldiers (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope)
Definitely one of the highlights from Encore – the blonde bomber delivers a perfect commercial radio track displaying a rather mature and sensible look at his current hip-hop beefs. Unfortunately, we seem to live in an age where ignorant fools have forgotten about the essence of the hip-hop battle and reach for their gun and crew when someone disses them on record. Krs-One style rants aside, it’s a solid track with less boring production than Eminem has displayed recently that should do well. Did I mention it’s got a Martika sample? I used to fancy her…
RATING: 4 / 10
