The Wire's McNulty Makes Cameo on Eminem's Relapse

Fans of David Simon's critically acclaimed drama series may do a double take when they first listen to the new album from Eminem.

Listeners might recognize the voice on the album's opening skit, "Dr. West," as The Wire's obstinate detective Jimmy McNulty. Indeed, Dominic West, who plays the street-smart cop, makes a guest appearance on the track, playing the part of a doctor discharging Mr. Mathers from rehab. Whether this track is the highlight of Relapse is yet to be discovered (see for yourself when the album drops on May 19).
