After delivering a 2018 album that was essentially one giant diss track, Eminem has now shared an official list of his 12 favorite diss tracks. Appearing on a radio program with Paul Rosenberg and DJ Whoo Kid for a show they titled ’12 Days of Diss-mas,’ these are Eminem’s essentials:

Tupac – “Hit ‘Em Up”
YZ – “Diss Fe Liar”
Eazy-E – “Real Muthaphuckkin Gs”
Common – “The Bitch In Yoo”
Tim Dog – “Fuck Compton”
Dr. Dre – “Dre Day”
Ice Cube – “No Vaseline”
N.W.A. – “Fuck the Police”
LL Cool J – “Jack the Ripper”
MC Lyte – “10% Diss”
Roxanne Shanté – “Roxanne’s Revenge”
KRS-One – “The Bridge Is Over”

On the same program, Eminem also took time to reflect on the great beef between Tupac and Biggie: “the Tupac/Biggie thing was tough because you like them both and you’re stuck in this weird thing where you’re bumping the Tupac diss record and then you’re listening to something from Biggie that might be dissing him in it.” Hear some of his thoughts below.
