Arguably the best rapper alive, Em’s at a position where he has nothing else to prove. While for the past two years he’s been pushing lyrical masquerades overseeing the projects of Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, and a collaborative effort with Royce da 5’9”, the guy’s profuse love for the art of rap probably retains his efficiency to strive in the studio non-stop. With that said, he’s most likely knocking out tracks that are piling up, and at his stature, with production provided by the likes of Dr. Dre and every top producer in the game, it’s a no brainer that Em’s next album will be another blockbuster. 50 Cent (who’s also on this list) claims to have heard the materials from the project. Whether Em will bring us forward or take us back, the guy’s rapping is unmatched and the expectations are high.
