But producer Boi-1da thinks Slim Shady is severely underrated as a producer. On Thursday (November 5), the veteran beatsmith shared a TJAYwitter post that read, “Eminem doesn’t get enough credit as a producer, he has gems.”
When a fan noted Eminem produced “On Fire” by Lloyd Banks, “Moment Of Clarity” by JAY-Z, “Hennessy” by 2Pac and Obie Trice as well, Boi-1da replied, “Warrior Pt. 2 & Till the End” followed by a puking emoji.
The Detroit-bred “rap god” has producer credits on songs such as D12’s “Purple Pills” and 50 Cent’s “Many Men (Wish Death).” He’s also produced or co-produced many of his own songs, including “Superman,” “Guilty Conscience” and “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.”
Meanwhile, Boi-1da has crafted several beats for Slim Shady himself, including the Recovery tracks “Not Afraid” and “Seduction” and the Kamikaze cut “Lucky You” featuring Joyner Lucas. The 34-year-old producer is also an in-house producer for Drake’s OVO Sound label and has worked with Drake, Rihanna, JAY-Z, Nicki Minaj, Nas, and Kendrick Lamar, among others.
