“The Monster” is Eminem’s fourth single from The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Incidentally, it also marks the fourth time Eminem and Rihanna have collaborated.

This dark and emotional track has Eminem considering his Shady alter-ego a monster. The monster could also be the fame which has taken so much from him, or perhaps the true monster is his mind and the demons that plague it.

This hook was co-written by Bebe Rexha and Jon Bellion, and went on to win the award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 2015 Grammys.
