The reason I think Trick Trick possibly threatened Eminem and Royce to be on this track is inconsequential. But let’s just recognize that they don’t belong on a twerking song with him, that their verses sound like they were applied without knowing what the beat was and that Trick Trick only fits with these lyrical giants geographically and not in terms of talent. Anyway, twerk that, pop that after the jump.
