5/5. "I'm alive again/more alive than I've ever been in my whole life", EM's opening lyrics say it all. 'Not Afraid' started it off and everyone loved the top selling, big Rhianna duet 'Love The Way You Lie' (as did we) but Eminem's best moment in his 'Recovery' came when he gave 'No Love' with Lil' Wayne. After the two most individual, dynamic rappers around hit big on Waynes 'Drop The World' they teamed up again before Eminem's record release and Weezy's imprisonment. With Wayne facing a year behind bars and Em' relapsing both M.C.s had their backs against the wall. Still the competition, haters and the charts forgot that these rappers also had something else in common, that this is when their at their best. With two great verses the pair reclaimed their pride and position all at the same time. Wayne set it off perfectly and Em' ended it all with perfect execution so good that Wayne even got his Diddy on, ad-libbing along like the perfect fan. The song even took a Haddaway sample, that is synonymous with a famous, hilarious Will Ferrell 'Saturday Night Live' skit and still everything worked perfectly. 'What Is Love'? Two top M.C.'s on the top of their game. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
