Jackson’s first mixtape, “Jackin’ for Beats“, was released online in March 2012 under the moniker OMG. “True to its title, the hip-hop rookie offers his own lyrics over the beats of some of the year’s most popular tracks,” Vibe’s Jazmine Gray said. On the 10-track tape, the son of a hip-hop legend gets off to a strong start. Jackson made an appearance in Pia Mia’s music video for “Touch” in 2015.

However, a lot of people rank “Relapse” as one of the worst projects by Eminem, but it still remains a timeless masterpiece. The Sixth studio album by Eminem was released on May 19, 2009, through Aftermath, Interscope, and Shady Records. It was his first album after a four-year hiatus from recording due to drug addiction. The project debuted at #1 on Billboard 200, with moving over 608k units in its first week, and also reached the top in several other countries.
The album Relapse is a concept album about terror, drug recovery, and relapse. Eminem remarked that the album’s concept was more evocative of The Slim Shady LP (1999) and The Marshall Mathers LP (2001) than of The Marshall Mathers LP (2001). (2000). “Crack a Bottle,” “We Made You,” “3 a.m.,” and “Beautiful,” as well as the promotional song “Old Time’s Sake,” were among the singles released. Dr. Dre and 50 Cent’s song “Crack a Bottle” debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The Recording Industry Association of America awarded Relapse double platinum certification (RIAA).
Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., is well-known not just for being Ice Cube’s son, but also for rapping and acting. He’s studied from the finest in the business, including his father and Eminem.
Jackson’s debut mixtape, Jackin’ for Beats, was published online under the moniker OMG. “True to its title, the hip-hop newcomer lays his own rhymes over the sounds of some of the year’s most successful singles,” Vibe’s Jazmine Gray remarked. “With the 10-track tape, the son of a hip hop legend is off to a promising start.”
“Some people claim I sound like OMG,” Jackson remarked in an interview with XXL Magazine. No one has ever compared myself to other artists or attempted to do so.
He was recently invited to Nick Cannon’s morning show on Power 106, where he was questioned about his Top 5 rappers, as is customary. Despite the fact that Shea knew Nick would be upset, he said what he did: I’ve got to play Em on that, bro.
“I’ve got to play Em on that, bro. I gotta put Em on there, bro, like I love that white motherf**ker, bro… That’s a motherf**ker, you have to have him on your side!” I love you Nick. Shady is raw. People might wanna get on his new shit tough but he’s one of the few artists where I’ve copped every album bro. He in my top5.
