The Worst Producer on the Mic

More

Via Vulture, here's Eminem doing Dre lyrics. This was actually educational for me—the qualitative difference between Em doing Em and Em doing Dre is substantial. It's not that he does a bad imitation, to the contrary it's very good one and thus unwittingly illustrative of the boring drone that is Dr. Dre rhyming. Hearing Eminem's voice I kept waiting for his awesome, unpredictable cadence and acid humor. Instead we just got vanilla Dre.
