Detroit What?

But for all his ambition to make his rap more than just something to bump in your ride, Esham spends too much time one-sidedly sparring with Eminem. In the first half of "All Night Everyday," he calls Eminem "Emily" and threatens to kill his daughter, which sounds pretty forced considering that the second half of the song, inexplicably, finds porn star Heather Hunter getting ready to have anal sex. It's only on "Chemical Imbalance," with its oozing live bass riff and stream-of-consciousness dis (where he reminds "Eminem of D'Angelo Bailey/Hailie's in a coma/I smell the aroma of a dead body"), that Esham's vision of Detroit's nothing-to-lose rap as next-level headphone rock meshes with his need to beef in the interest of moving some units. Then again, if you don't have Eminem putting you on, it can't hurt to drop his name.
