Back in November, Eminem put out Shady XV, an album that ostensibly paired some new songs with the greatest hits of his label, Shady Records. Put simply, it was not that good a record, with the “greatest hits” mostly comprising mediocre Shady deep cuts and 50 Cent favorites. But “Detroit vs. Everybody,” a fun anthem featuring an array of Motor City rappers, was an album highlight, and it now has a video that’s worth watching just for the star power on display.
Big Sean, Danny Brown, Royce Da 5’9”, Trick Trick, and “Try Me” sensation Dej Loaf all join Eminem on the track, celebrating their city over a circular piano riff and boom bap beat. It’s a rousing posse cut, and a rare bright spot in Eminem’s subpar recent work.
