Arch Nemesis is Benzino’s 3rd solo album released on February 22, 2005 during the aftermath of his bitter feud with Eminem. It was released independently on ZNO Records. The first single was the Scott Storch produced “Bottles & Up”. Followed by the single “Look Into My Eyes” which is famous for its music video which responds to Eminem’s video “Toy Soldiers”. This was Benzino’s most critically acclaimed out of his first 3 solo albums. This album brought us the long lost Tupac verse on “Trying To Make It Through”. It was taken from a song Benzino and Tupac together recorded with Freddie Foxxx previously in 1994 before Tupac’s untimely death. Over a decade later it was remixed and released on Arch Nemesis. The song caused more rumors about Tupac being alive. Production on this album is by Scott Storch, Reefa (Fambase), L.E.S., Street Runners, D Moel, Beat Brokers and Hangmen 3. Guest Appearance by The Untouchables, Tupac, Scarface, Lil Jon, Freddie Foxxx and Yaga Y Mackie.
