To celebrate 15 years of his label, Shady Records, Eminem releases ‘Shady XV’, a double-sided compilation featuring new material as well as a celebration of the Shady back catalogue.  Side one houses all new material, and features the likes of Yelawolf, Slaughterhouse, Sia and D12.  Em’s flow is, as usual, completely unparalleled, but his insistence on using cheesy hooks and beat that should have been shelved on their very inception lets him down.  Side two features classics such as 50’s ‘In Da Club’ and D12’s ‘Purple Pills’.  No complaints here, but we were kind of hoping the unheard version of ‘Lose Yourself‘ would be included instead of the original.  Stream both sides below via Spotify.
