It was only a matter of time before lyrical juggernauts Eminem and Kendrick Lamar joined forces on the same song. The two proteges of Dr. Dre get together on “Love Game” from Em’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which sprung a leak today. The song finds the two rapping light-heartedly about a girl who did them wrong. As expected, the track caused a stir on Twitter.
“When I heard eminem and kendrick had a song together I was expecting a lyrical masterpiece but instead it was a hilarious song,” said Swag Daddy Max. “Kendrick and Eminem made a song together….this the s–t I’ve been dreaming for.” said Thee Bieber Hood.

Some were less positive and wanted more serious fare from the talented duo. “this eminem and kendrick lamar track is actually the worst song i’ve ever heard in my gotdamn life” said WZRD Kelly, while Mary Nashad added, “Not a fan of Eminem and Kendrick’s Love Game. I expected so much more from them.”

That Eminem joint with Kendrick is proper weird , madd bars and flow but don’t like the beat , but not surprising considering its Shady
