    This is Eminem in Super Saiyan form lyrically. Theres too many punchlines to count, the menacing flow, his vintage wittiness, the godly hook, the wordplay, rhyme schemes, and the amazing Sid Roams beat makes for a song that doesn't get enough credit in the scope of Eminems best post hiatus album yea I said it.

    He's competing against himself at this point of his career and this song goes toe to toe with some of his prime material.


    MMLP2 is top 4 and that includes TES and SSLP and MMLP2 has a prequel so what tf do you think that 4th spots for?

    MMLP2 is NOT his best post hiatus album.

    Probably my favorite track off MMLP2. Love the Sid Roams beat, and pretty much everything about it.

    i agree. The chorus sucks too. Some of the lines are good here and there, but i never feel the urge to listen to it, it drones on and the flow isnt energetic enough throughout for me to want to put it on. Plus the song hardly touches on the concept of "evil twin", wasted title concept.

    Not a great song by any stretch but this part is classic:

    So, who's left? Lady Gaga? Mess with the Bieber?
    Nah, F with Christina!
    I ain't f--king' with either Jessica neither: Simpson or Alba
    My albums just sicker than strep with the fever
    Get the Chloraseptic, Excedrin, Aleve, or
    Extra Strength Tylenol 3's
    Feel like I'm burning to death, but I'm freezin'
    Bedridden and destined never to leave the
    Bedroom ever again, like the legend of Heath-uh-
    Ledger, my suicide notes, barely legible, read the
    Bottom, it's signed by the Joker

    Just like Stimulate, Say What You Say, and The Kids but yall would say that those were better songs simply because of when they were released

    The Kids is far from boring to me.

    Say What U Say is one of the bottom songs from the album, you could make a case about Evil Twin being better.

    I understand about Stimulate but content here is much better.

    emphatic f--k no.
    your opinion sucks.

    MMLP2 is his best album post hiatus, by a very wide margin.
    dunno why it's fashionable on this forum to hate one of his best pieces of work.

    MMLP2 is pretty much the same as Encore and Relapse to me, they're all just a bunch of wasted potential. At least Recovery and Revival know they're pure trash and don't try to be anything else.

    It's pretty cool. The lyrics are good, flow & song are just OK to me though, one of my least listened to MMLP2 tracks. I feel like a lot of people love it because they just love that kind of Em flow, to me it's a boring flow. He's restraining himself and lacking rhythm. "Baby" and "Wicked Ways" and "Groundhog Day" are all far more amazing to me.

    Overrated song, how the f--k is this close to anything on SSLP? I hear no passion or heart in his voice. Groundhog Day is the best MMLP2 era track by far.
