    On this day, exactly 6 years ago (November 24, 2014), Shady Records label dropped a double disk, compilation album Shady XV, performed by various artists, under Shady Records and Interscope Records, executive produced by Eminem.

    The album was released in honor of the label’s 15th anniversary and if features Slaughterhouse, Bad Meets Evil, D12 and Yelawolf, as well as the label’s boss Eminem. The second disc includes some of Shady Records greatest hits, featuring 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Obie Trice, Ca$his an more.

    The album debuted at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 chart and No.1 on US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, with first-week sales of 138,000 copies in the United States and following year the album was certified Gold in the country by RIAA for selling 500,000 copies.

    One of the most surprising tracks on the album appears as a bonus track and its the demo version of “Lose Yourself.” Eminem recorded demo version before completely rewriting the song to make it fit with the Jimmy Smith/B-Rabbit character from the 8 Mile movie. As Eminem says in on of his interviews, he does not even remember when and where he recorded the demo version of the Oscar-wining song.

    Fine Line is some of Eminem's best writing this decade, maybe his best actually. The whispering, erratic delivery brings it down a tad though.

    Guts over Fear is the winner here. Self aware, retrospective and a good message (that isn't forced).

    If Eminem had done these songs in his TES voice/delivery they are undoubtedly classic.

    I relistned this album today, it wasn't that bad. It was miles ahead of Revival.

    I mean Revival had Castle, Arose, Believe and Walk On Water...

    But Shady XV had Psychopath Killer, Fine Line, Till It's Gone, Twisted, Guts Over Fear, Detroit VS Everybody.
