When it comes to the realm of hip hop, few artists have made as significant an impact as Eminem. His lyrical prowess, rapid-fire delivery, and unapologetic attitude have solidified his place as one of the greatest MCs in the history of the genre. A defining aspect of his career has been his penchant for diss tracks, aimed at various targets throughout his journey.

As we dissect and rank these lyrical battles, we’ll explore the cultural and historical context that fueled the fire, providing you with a comprehensive perspective on Eminem’s journey through the rap battlefield.

So, let’s get into it, here we are ranking Eminem’s most memorable diss tracks, from the worst to the best.

25. Bagpipes from Baghdad

It takes aim at Mariah Carey and her then-husband Nick Cannon, fueling an ongoing feud that had begun with Carey’s denial of any romantic involvement with Eminem. This track blends scathing disses with a dose of dark humor and absurdity. Eminem likens himself to a bagpiper summoning chaos and taunts Nick Cannon about his marriage to Carey.

24. Kim

While not a traditional diss track, it’s an honorable mention as it’s a searing portrayal of Eminem’s tumultuous relationship with his then-wife, Kim Scott. The song delves into the darkest corners of Eminem’s psyche, with graphic and disturbing lyrics.

23. Big Weenie

Let’s start with the weakest link. “Big Weenie” from the 2004 album “Encore” may not have been Eminem’s worst track overall, but it certainly falls short in the diss department. Targeted at Benzino and The Source, the track lacked the lyrical punch and venomous edge of some of Em’s other disses.

22. Hail Mary

Em’s response to Ja Rule’s “Loose Change” didn’t quite hit the mark. “Hail Mary” was a decent diss, but it didn’t stand out in the sea of disses during the early 2000s East Coast-West Coast feud. It’s a reminder that even the Rap God himself has off days.

21. Armageddon

Part of Em’s feud with Everlast, “Armageddon” takes a few shots at the House of Pain rapper. While it’s not a terrible track, it lacks the lyrical depth and punch that we expect from Eminem. It’s more of a warning shot than a knockout blow.

20. Say What You Say

Teaming up with Dr. Dre on this track, Eminem targeted Jermaine Dupri and Canibus. While the verses are strong, it doesn’t quite reach the heights of his solo disses. Still, any track with Eminem and Dre deserves a listen.

19. Not Alike

Eminem’s beef with Machine Gun Kelly led to “Not Alike” on his “Kamikaze” album. The track is aggressive and contains some potent disses, but it’s not quite as memorable as some of Em’s earlier work. It’s a solid entry but isn’t top tier.

18. The Storm

In 2017, Eminem delivered a blistering political diss track aimed at Donald Trump, titled “The Storm.” While it was hailed for its message and lyrical content, it doesn’t quite fit the classic diss track mold. Nevertheless, it’s an important piece of Eminem‘s discography.

17. Invasion

“Say goodbye to Hollywood.” Eminem’s response to Everlast’s “Whitey’s Revenge” showcases his lyrical dexterity. It’s a reminder that Em’s diss tracks often come with a heavy dose of personal revelations, giving fans a glimpse into his life.

16. The Conspiracy

Here, Eminem took aim at the Insane Clown Posse. While it may not be as iconic as some of his other disses, “The Conspiracy” showcases Em’s ability to pick apart his targets with precision.

15. Quitter / Hit ‘Em Up

Eminem takes on Everlast once again, this time sampling 2Pac’s legendary “Hit ‘Em Up.” While it’s not quite in the same league as the original, it’s a solid diss that deserves recognition.

14. Go to Sleep

Part of Eminem’s feud with Ja Rule, “Go to Sleep” packs a punch. It’s a relentless attack on Ja Rule and Murder Inc., proving that Em could go toe-to-toe with anyone in the game.

13. Bully

This track is a hidden gem from the “Straight from the Lab” mixtape. Eminem takes on Benzino once more and delivers some memorable lines. It’s a reminder that even his throwaways can outshine others’ best efforts.

12. The Ringer

Em’s response to the mumble rap wave, “The Ringer” is a lyrical clinic. While it’s not a traditional diss track, it’s a bold statement that Em isn’t going anywhere. He takes on everyone from Lil Pump to Joe Budden.

11. Girls

Eminem’s feud with Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst gave birth to “Girls.” It’s a blistering diss that takes no prisoners, showcasing Em’s ability to annihilate his targets with a torrent of words.

10. Cleanin’ Out My Closet

While “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” isn’t a traditional diss track, it’s a scathing indictment of Eminem’s own mother, Debbie Mathers. It’s a deeply personal and emotional track that ranks among his best work.

9. I Remember

In “I Remember,” Em reflects on his early career and the challenges he faced. While it’s not a direct diss, it serves as a reminder of the hurdles he had to overcome.

8. Can-I-Bitch

Eminem’s response to Jermaine Dupri’s “JD’s Reply” is a masterclass in lyrical warfare. It’s a relentless assault on Dupri, proving that Em’s pen game is unmatched.

7. Fall

“Fall” is Eminem’s response to the criticism he received for his 2017 album “Revival.” He takes shots at critics, mumble rappers, and Tyler, the Creator. It’s a fiery track that reaffirms Em’s place in the hip-hop’s greatest.

6. Bump Heads

Part of the feud between Eminem and Mobb Deep, “Bump Heads” is a gritty and aggressive diss track that shows Em’s ability to adapt to different styles and beats.

5. Hailie’s Revenge

Eminem’s daughter Hailie gets in on the action in “Hailie’s Revenge.” It’s a family affair as Em and Hailie team up to take on Ja Rule and Benzino. It’s a uniquely personal diss track that makes it stands out and pack a punch.

4. The Sauce

Eminem takes on Benzino once again in “The Sauce.” It’s a blistering attack that leaves no stone unturned. Em’s wordplay and flow are on point, making it one of his most memorable diss tracks.

3. Killshot

Killshot” is Eminem’s response to Machine Gun Kelly’s “Rap Devil.” It’s a ruthless takedown that showcases Em’s lyrical prowess. Yet another classic layer to Em’s ability to annihilate his opponents with words.

2. Nail in the Coffin

Topping our list is “Nail in the Coffin,” Eminem’s response to Benzino’s “Pull Your Skirt Up.” This track is a lyrical masterpiece, with Em dismantling Benzino with surgical precision.

1. The Warning

Eminem’s “The Warning” takes the top spot in our ranking of his diss tracks. Aimed squarely at Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, this track is a lyrical tour de force. Eminem holds nothing back as he exposes intimate details of his alleged relationship with Carey, leaving no room for doubt about his willingness to take on anyone who crosses him.

In the world of the diss tracks, Eminem reigns supreme. His ability to craft intricate verses, deliver devastating blows, and dominate his rivals with words is unparalleled. While some of his diss tracks may not have reached the heights of others, they all bear the mark of a true hip-hop legend.
