A Look Back At The History Of One Of Hip Hop Hottest Songs.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was in high school, and Eminem was all the rage. His music was everywhere, he had a movie coming out, and every song he dropped seemed to be fire. I remember hearing ‘Wangsta’ blaring from car speakers after school, and not realizing that 50 Cent (the same guy who made ‘How To Rob’, one of my favorite tracks ever) was in cahoots with Em. However it does seem like a while ago since the last time I’ve heard one of their first collaborations, ‘Patiently Waiting’, until I start singing it, and I remember every single word.
