Eminem’s Music to be Murdered By marks the tenth consecutive album to debut at number one. An achievement that no other artist has attained prior. One of the noticeable tracks on the project, “I Will” served as a reunion for the supergroup Slaughterhouse sans Joe Budden. The song illustrated that the remaining members KXNG Crooked, Royce Da 5’9”, and Joel Ortiz still have great chemistry. One would hope at some point that their project Glass House would see the light of the day.

Prior to Slaughterhouse Eminem had put out a considerable amount of material with 50 Cent’s G-Unit. Many would consider during this period Eminem was at his best. The first track was “Don’t Push Me” from 50 Cent’s 2003 Get Rich or Die Tryin’ which also featured with Lloyd Banks. An artist that Eminem would work the most with from G-Unit besides 50 Cent.

Later that year Dj Green Lantern’s mixtape Invasion Part II: Conspiracy Theory dropped. A good amount of the tracks addressed 50 Cent’s beef with Ja Rule. A feud that Eminem was brought into at this point. He would appear with 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo on “Bump Heads”. Then team up once again with Lloyd Banks along with fellow Detroit co-hort Obie Trice on “We All Die One Day”.

The following year showed up on Lloyd Banks debut album The Hunger For More, dropping on “Warrior Part 2” with 50 Cent and Nate Dogg. When in 2005 came along Eminem laced “We Ain’t” from The Game’s album The Documentary during his brief association with G-Unit. Several months later along with Obie Trice he popped up on Tony Yayo’s Thoughts of a Predicate Felon, lending vocals to “Drama Setter”.

In 2006 Eminem put out the compilation project Eminem Presents: The Re-Up which featured the lead single “You Don’t Know” which included Eminem, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Cashis. Eminem would lastly appear on a G-Unit project other than 50 Cent’s on 2010’s Lloyd Banks H.F.M 2(The Hunger for More 2). He contributed on “Celebrity” with Akon and “Where I’m At”.

Months prior to the recording Eminem and 50 Cent had played a prank on Lloyd Banks. They jokingly confronted him that they heard he did not want Eminem involved in the project. Lloyd Banks reaction was priceless but the trio soon broke into laughter. Eminem and G-Unit had a great seven-year run. Shortly thereafter 50 Cent and G-Unit parted ways with Interscope/Shady/Aftermath. Eminem still remains close with 50 Cent but G-Unit is disbanded with no possibility of reconciliation anytime soon.
