    Stepping stone is the best song on the album, but the sample is obnoxious and completely pointless. Eminems part of the chorus functions perfectly fine as a hook

    Both seriously lack replay value. The sampled chorus of Stepping Stone is just musically unpleasant. Not a fan of the way he mixes his singing vocals these days either. It’s like he just chucks it into melodyne and drags it a step or two up then layers it all.

    Honestly couldn’t care less about “the story of d12” either. Should have talked about something more interesting. I like the beat tho. Got those old skool em drums

    Voted Castle just because you couldn't have a song about D12 being over whilst also featuring a song from D12.

    Stepping Stone possibly my fave song since TES though. Hits me right in the feels.

    Brah, I get you’re kinda emotionally attached to the story and s---. But i haven’t cared about D12 since 2006. I don’t wanna hear that s---. I feel like after I’ve heard the song once, I’m not really inclined to go listen again.

    People say it sounds like 05 em, but is that really a good thing. We’ve constantly criticised that era over the years. It’s like
    “finally he’s not the 2018 Eminem!!!”
    “He’s the slightly less s-----y 05 Eminem”

    lol you're absolutely right, but I believe 05-08 Em was leagues and leagues and leagues ahead of Revival Eminem. If you think he's just slightly less s-----y, SS and Good Guy obviously won't hit you like they hit some others (me included)

    I didn't get your explanation - not that it's a big deal. you explained why you could like SS less than Castle, and then you say you prefer SS but you voted Castle... I genuinely meant I don't get it

    The original question was "which song belongs on TES". Stepping Stone can't possibly belong on TES because D12 want over at that point.

    I'm just being stupidly logical. Ultimately Stepping Stone hits me in the heart so I prefer that song at the moment. Time will tell though, who knows how this will imbed in a few months time.

    Castle/Arose are better than anything off Kamikaze so by default they are better

    Castle/Arose is way better.
    But I really believe that Stepping Stone is a old vault record that he felt was fitting for this album - it has a totally different vibe, voice and production compared to the rest of the album.

    I kinda get what you're trying to ask, but D-12 was still a thing when TES came out so why is this a thing lmao
