Best Examples of Eminem's WordplaySwagFlicks Eminem is one of the best rappers of all time, hands down. In his career, he has spat forth plenty of clever lyrics and amazing wordplay. I'm not going to spoil anything, just try to decipher his code.
The Top Ten
This bit of wordplay is his best. No other lyric can match it. Now or ever. - SwagFlicks
I was being hyperbolic then, I know there's better lyrics, I'm just saying that this one is really good. - SwagFlicks
If this is "his best," don't care to hear his worst.
There's a reason why I love this song so much. This is that reason. - SwagFlicks
Rap God is overrated, I must admit. However, Em's wordplay is literally untouchable throughout the entire song. This line is easier to decipher than others, but it's so good. - SwagFlicks
The genius would be exposed more if you put in parentheses "jeans". - WonkeyDude98
Even if Not Afraid is pop-ish, it's still an incredible and inspiring song. This is the line that cemented it as one of his best examples of wordplay. - SwagFlicks
It's tricky at first, but it'll come to you. And it hits hard. - SwagFlicks
This line is good, and it makes perfect sense. - SwagFlicks
This... this is just gold served to us on a silver platter. - SwagFlicks
Ha ha I can't help but laugh (or at least smile) every time I listen to this song and that opening verse comes up. - UltimateHybridX
This line basically introduced Em to the world, and oh my lord is it clever. - SwagFlicks
"Clever? " Uh, no. Now chimpanzees... THEY'RE clever.
The only reason this line is lower is because the one similar to it makes perfect sense in context. - SwagFlicks
Eminem pretty much dissed all the popular white rappers before his time in that one lyric. Well played, Em. Well played. - cjWriter1997
Almost any line from Rap God can go on here, but this particular one just has me dying of laughter. - SwagFlicks
Has a stab at mumble rappers and genius word play! Love it
This has got to be my favourite word play. Double entendres and a karate kid reference!
I wouldn't say it's as much clever wordplay as it is sheer brutality and anger. - WonkeyDude98
