In honor of Throwback Thursday, English DJ and producer Tim Westwood just dropped a never-before-heard Eminem freestyle, and the thing is 13 minutes of 🔥🔥🔥.

The recording is supposedly from 1999 and features Slim Shady going in on a really funky beat, and trading bars with fellow wordsmith, the late Proof. The freestyle was part of Em’s promotional tour for The Slim Shady LP, and features classically angry Marshall Mathers-esque rhymes about everything from psychedelic mushrooms to his daughter, and even mentions his testicles. Nice!

Goes without saying it’s extremely NSFW – like pretty much all of Eminem’s lyrics ever – so headphones are definitely advisable if you’re cubicle chillin’ at the moment.

Not a bad #TBT at all, Tim Westwood. Much love for sharing these vintage rhymes with the people.
