i love eminem. i love marshall mathers. great storyteller, great lyricist, great artist, and i've heard he is a surprisingly sweet person. doesn't surprise me, though.
what DOES surprise me is the quality of his new music! right before he went off the radar a few years back he started getting really controversial and now he's just like the bulk of mainstream hip hop...watered down gangsta rap.
I like the public discourse his music sparked regarding topics like homophobia and sexism, but he's far from being a legitimate artist. Once the shock factor died down his music exposed itself for what it really was: shallow and obnoxiously commercial.
I love Eminem. Great voice, brilliant rhythym to his wonderfully dark lyrics. His black humour is hilarious and much more intelligent than the crudely violent and mysogynistic material of some other Rap stars
I do not prefer his music over any other, but he does exercise his use of free speech. I do like the comments he made about Bush- I believe alot of them are true. I believe he will have more to come, and more power to him. He gets a A+ for being unique.
I have a love/hate relationship with him as an artist. I think that he's brilliant at what he does and admire him as a musician and a writer (and yes, I count him as a writer, assuming he pens his own raps, because much of what he says is quite clever).
But then again, I don't agree with a lot of what he says and some of the more violent tracks scare me. But I guess it's that push-pull that makes him interesting.
I liked his first couple of hits he had when he first started. I would call them one hit wonders, but since I'm not a fan of rap, I can't really give him a good vote. Also he degrades and disrespects women and uses foul language in his songs
I love him very very much. I feel like he often is speaking straight to me. His voice gets down inside my soul. I think he's very bright and I love that he wears his heart on his sleeve. If he's feeling it, we are going to hear about it!
A lot of his songs are satirical commentary about popular culture and/or parenting. I think that much of the time though people just don't get that it is satire.
I like eminem because I can relate to him in some ways... I also know that my mother was a pill popper.. which makes me mad because I cant seem to figure out if she was on them between the pregnancy for me.. or when she was abuising me . to be honest I dont want to know the truth not because my school knew before me and wont tell me and I wont ask again... its because no matter what my mom did I still love her because shes my mother... even though it angers me...
Peanut M&M's are better. And the red is just dye...you know that right? It's not a flavor, like cherry covered, chocolate M&M's...it's just red dye #3! LOL...Actually I think everyone is drawn to red ones...hahaha...
There is no better song to run to than "Lose Yourself". I'm not a huge rap fan, but he, Dre and Snoop are definitely at the top of my rapper list. I don't like the newer stuff I hear on the radio. Very repetive and boring. Eminem tells good stories.
Many rappers have proclaimed themselves to be the greatest rapper of all time or the G.O.A.T.Fans have adorned their faves with this title.The greatest of all time. Do you think it's Drake, Wayne, Em, Jay or some...
Its my cousin - he thinks cos he's rolling with a gang and cos he's smoking blunt now that he can do whatever the hell he likes, like pop into my crib anytime he likes and steal my damn stuff! First it was my phones....
Just put up my first post relating to magic, and I was wondering if there are other Hubbers who are into the art as a Hobby, Pro, or just fans like myself. I'd love to find others with a similar interest.-RR
