Em has had lots of famous beefs–too many write about here–but one of his earliest was against Canibus. The two had a misunderstanding, because Em was suspected to have been the writer for LL Cool J of “The Ripper Strikes Back,” which dissed Canibus. Em has never admitted writing it, and Cool J claims he wrote it himself, but relations between Bus and Em started getting worse. So, on Sway & Tech’s “This Or That” album, Em slipped in a line against Bus. It wasn’t even a great line–he just suggested that someone switch their demo with Canibus’ if they want to get ahead, suggesting that Bus was making his fame on his name and not on his skill. Bus attacked Em a few times, but none of them are even worth hearing. But Em’s responses are brilliant.

1. Children’s Story (Canibus diss)-Em

2. Can I Bitch? (Canibus diss)-Eminem

Marshall has also fueded with far more famous folks than ‘Bus, who never really broke big. There was this toss-off, for example, against a guy who was huge for about a year:

3. Are You Afraid (Mystikal diss)-Eminem. “I’m strong enough to beat your ass with a feather pillow!” he says, before threating to rip Mystikal’s voicebox out. This seemed kinda gratuitous, but a young Marshall was hungry for fame so he took the attack everyone route. Seems to have worked.

And remember his classic battle with Whitey Ford? I’m actually a fan of Everlast (not a huge fan, but I appreciate the dude). But I gotta say, Em killed him.

Here’s some of what Ev said: Whitey’s Revenge (dissing Eminem)-Everlast And here’s the fourth reason not to attack Eminem:

4. Girlz (Everlast diss)-Em

5. Everyone knows about the famous line about Christina Aguilera from “The Real Slim Shady.” (I’m not gonna throw it up here–y’all must have heard it.) He did it live at MTV, with XTina in the audience (best reaction shot from a live show ever!). But not a lot of folks know that she tried to respond by creating her own diss records. And they’re actually pretty funny. Wonder who wrote them for her?

The Real Slim Shady-Christina Aguilera “You sound like Peter Brady/You get real irritating.”

Bend On Over Shady-Xtina

Slim’s greatest battles are against other rappers, though, not blues singers like Whitey or pop stars like Christina. In 2003, Eminem’s battle with Benzino marked his greatest diss lyrics ever. Zino is the editor of The Source (or was), which gave his genius album “The Marshall Mathers LP” only 2 mics. So Em came back on his The Eminem Show album with “Say What You Say.” But it was the mixtape verses that really killed any street cred Benzino might ever have had.

Pull Ya Skirt Up-Benzino. What’s so funny about this is that Ben spends the whole time talking about Eminem was never a gangbanger or drug dealer, but Em never claimed to be! So Em didn’t even want street cred.

Most of Em’s retaliations are well known (Nail in the Coffin is the best), but here’s one he just tossed off in a Freestyle, proving that Em can free associated better than Zino can ever write.

6. Nail in the Coffin (vs. Benzino)-Em

7. Freestyle (vs. Benzino)-Eminem.

During the ‘Zino battle, Marshall dragged Jah Rule into it, the shoutingest gravel rapper since Mystikal. Here’s a couple tracks, along with Jah’s sexiest picture ever. He almost looks like a girl!

8. Got It Twisted (vs. Benzino and Jah Rule)-Eminem

9. Monkey See Monkey Do (Jah Rule)-Eminem

And I’d like to leave you with the tape released by Benzino of Eminem being “racist.” I don’t think he’s particularly racially offensive here, he’s just not funny. Number 10, then, may be Em’s worst diss ever.

10. The tape.

    wickedlette…; fuck up ya horrible cunt haha
    you talk some amount of shite, end of.
    so suck my dick you creepy individual =]

  4. DJdemmos says:

    Em is fantastic. I must admit. But I think that it is pretty hard to beat cannibus in a lyrical sense. Em won the battle, for sure, But ‘Bus is the better rapper and Way smarter individual by far.

  5. FriscoNorte says:

    U said it your self Homie, Em won the battle! In all logic that makes EM the better rapper/MC…no???
    Benzetta Dissed Shady at will!
    Ja Rule Dissed 50 CENT & EM at will!
    Does that make them “GREAT RAPPERS” I don’t think so!!!
    It ain’t about the quantity of disses, it’s about the QUALITY!!!
    Making a shit load of Crapy JAY Z disses don’t make em good just cause they were aimed at Jay!
    As for wickedlette: first and foremost learn to spell bitch. Get your facts straight! Insain Clown Pussies were and always will be jealous of EM’s fame. Peep the video where they talk about how EM’s doing all them shows and they aint got no shows! How EM blew up and they didn’t!! U can find that VIdeo on you tube! then Bitches wit make up aint even from the D but they try to claim it! that’s like bitch from tiburon claimin FIllmoe!

    for the record em took jabs at both LL and canibus on get you mad. With the whole “my attitude is wosre then NWA’s was, i battle you over stupid shit, and diss people who don’t have shit to do with it like cool j does (my tatoo). Em made that record way before the canibus and eminem beef. Mystikal was on way before eminem even debuted and was already famous, making millions (look up no limit records you idiots). and would have gave eminem a run for his money dispute wise. as he was just as radical, unpredictable., manic with a rapid fire flow (listen to yall aint ready where he killed bg and young ass lil wayne). eminem has never been in a serious beef with anyone of his talent. royce da 5’9 was the closest. there is only a selected few who can really take em out: Nas (either, wanna be me), DMX (ja rule didnt even bother to address him and he murdered kurupt), Ice Cube (his disses changed the game), Game (eminem would have to devote his life to follow up disses) and common (the truth hurts and common packs a good punch). em is one of the greatest, but there are alot of artist capable of taking it to em. you dont believe me ask big sty (eminem stands for master marshal)
