Plant the Flag

Wooo man...

To put it simply, this is probably the most consistently talented group of emcees I have ever seen in one clip. Every single one of these rappers has been recognized by the hip hop community as nothing less than stellar at what they do. To see them now all unified under the singular umbrella of Shady Records is evidence of how vital it is for Eminem to preserve a very specific sense of hip hop composition and performance.

There is aggression and irony to their rhymes, suggesting an impatience and dissatisfaction with what they observe in the world. However, their respect for each other's work allows them to enjoy the communal experience of performing together, despite how they see things crumbling around them.

Slaughterhouse is the truth.
