Eminem’s Favorite Song Will Surprise You
Regarding the rap genre, Eminem is considered one of the greatest rappers of all time, with an impressive 220 million records sold worldwide.
Over his 20-year career, the” Rap God” hitmaker has released 11 studio albums, won 15 Grammy Awards, and has collaborated with big names such as Rihanna and Elton John. Some of his most famous hits include “The Real Slim Shady,” “Without Me,” and “Love The Way You Lie.”
So when asked about his favorite song during a recent Q&A session at a Spotify streaming party celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Marshall Mathers MP, his answer was surprising.
According to Daily Mail, the “Lose Yourself” singer revealed that his favorite song is a lesser-known track from his album “Curtain Call”: “FACK,” a song that was excluded from the original clean version of the album due to its shockingly explicit lyrics, with one verse reading: “Ow ow ow (oh goddam!). ‘I’m going to f***ing c**! *Oh s***!”
However, Eminem insists that the song is a “lyrical masterpiece,” agreeing with a fan who shared the same sentiment, but it is unclear if he was joking with fans.

During the Q&A, Eminem also shared some other personal favorites, such as his favorite verse from his song, “I’m Back,” his favorite Avengers character (The Hulk), and his favorite cereal brand (Kellogg’s Bran Raisin Crunch).
Meanwhile, the 50-year-old is currently in a legal dispute as he reportedly filed an opposition against a trademark application submitted by Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon for their podcast, Reasonably Shady.
According to Page Six, the rapper filed the opposition on Valentine’s Day, stating that his brand could potentially be “damaged” if the trademark was granted. He also argued that the podcast’s trademark might confuse consumers.

entrepreneurship, and “conversations about being fearless women as they recount stories from their exciting lives.”
As part of their plans to monetize the podcast, Bryant and Dixon filed a trademark application to sell merchandise such as water bottles, lip gloss, sweatshirts, hats, jackets, and socks under the podcast’s name.
In response to Eminem’s opposition, the reality stars requested that the opposition be struck out.
