Eminem Says He Prays to Be Among Greats Like JAY-Z, Kanye West, & Drake

Nas and Eminems first collaboration arrived Friday as part of Nas new album Kings Disease II.

On the Hit-Boy-produced track EPMD 2, which also features the legendary duo, the Rap God shows humility as he raps about wanting to be compared to greats like JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, and Big Daddy Kane.

Marshall Mathers also gives props to rap kings including Dr. Dre, Kanye West, Drake, and Nas himself.

Despite Eminems 25 years in the game, the lyrics surprised some fans, who already consider the Detroit rapper to be one of the GOATs.

Elsewhere on his verse, Em pays respect to hip-hops late legends. RIP out to DMX, Stezo, E and Nipsey / Ecstasy and Prince Markie Dee, MF DOOM, he raps. I hit 50 [Cent] via text / Told him that I love him cause I dont even know when Ima see him next / Tomorrow could be your death.

Kings Disease II, the sequel to Nas 2020 album, also features a rare collaboration with Lauryn Hill.

On Nobody, the Fugees icon addresses the criticism she has received for being notoriously late to her shows. My awareness like Keanu in The Matrix / Im saving souls and yall complaining about my lateness, raps Ms. Hill.
