Voices Inside My Head.

They make a good combination, don’t they? The former bad boy of rap and pop’s bad girl link up again for this surefire hit. You think they’re crazy? Well that’s OK, they make hits anyway. Rih-Rih smashes the chorus and Slim Shady reminisces (“I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek“), yodels and vows to keep calm and carry on. Don’t be afraid to sing along.—YN

    If this made the list, I can only imagine that Rap God will also make the list.

  • TitaniumWiz

    Berzerk was a better single than Monster!! #justsaying

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    Great album… this single is borderline unlistenable though….

  • tjp

    Is this a joke? I have no qualms about Started From the Bottom and Power Trip being where they are… but this makes the list? This shit was a terrible pop song. This makes the top 5 and Old School Love doesn’t? Laughable…

  • kanye west

    this should be in worst list. this shit is trash. this guys album was straight trash.

  • Chronic

    im a huge em fan, but this bullshit needs to stay off top rap song lists…there were some good songs on the album, and even the corny ones you cam’t deny that technically speaking looking at his flow and wordplay he murders almost every track…but it doesn’t change the fact a lot of it is pop sounding

  • Ibrahima Niang

    shit was fucking terrible
