Eminem has put together what may be the strongest Detroit posse cut in rap history. Listen to "Detroit Vs. Everybody" above, via Slim Shady's official VEVO YouTube account.

The song features a hard beat by Statik Selektah and excellent verses from Royce Da 5'9", Big Sean, Danny Brown, and Eminem. To kick things off, Royce spits fire and caps his verse with a slick reference to 2pac's "Hail Mary" as he sings that classic line "Do you wanna ride or die?" Big Sean shows an epic display of wordplay, keeping it "cerebral" (although someone should probably tell him the sequel is almost never as good as the original).

Danny Brown brings his inimitable wild style to the track, setting up the man himself: Eminem. As Em has turned the page from his past days of drug abuse and reckless behavior, this is the exact type of track that lets him show his defiant attitude and lyrical skills in a way that's credible. Calling out NFL star Adrian Petersen for beating his kid and following it up with a line about attacking a baby sitter with a potato peeler is the kind of fearless and irreverent stuff that has made Eminem one of the greatest rappers of his generation.

The song will appear on a compilation album of Shady Records' greatest hits, SHADY XV, due out on Shady / Aftermath Records this November 24th. Pick it up on Amazon (CD, MP3) and iTunes.
