    Do you like Eminem?

    Eminem is the best-selling musician of the last decade, so I figure some people must like him.

      I like most of his stuff.  I generally prefer the tracks on his cds that are not released as singles.

      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! hmm
      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.

      Errm I like about 15 or so tracks he's done. He's very hit and miss for me, some of his tracks just don't work for me. His latest album had maybe 2 good tracks on it, one being the single.

        Who Made You is his worst single to date IMO. Awful song.

        I hope the first single off his next album (if he has one) will not consist of him dissing celebrities - it's starting to get old.

        I liked his latest album, but it's definitely not on par with The Marshall Mathers LP, The Slim Shady LP or The Eminem Show.

          I like We Made You,(better with the video) after the annoying woman singing at the beginning, I didn't like that.

          The Marshall Mathers LP is still the undisputed champion of his albums smile

      Eminem is one of the most talented rappers ever. And I admire the fact that whatever he is going through in his life he shares with his fans through his music.

      I think he has skill lyrically but his voice gets annoying after a while he sounds like his voice crackles and screeches. He's OK.

    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.

    He sucks.

    I am a huge 2PAC fan and I like Eminem. In my opinion, the quality of Hip Hop (or rap) declined tremendously when both Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. died.

    However, Eminem (and maybe only 2-3 more artists like Nas) lyrics and story-telling are excellent.   

    It was interesting when one of Tupac's songs made the Vatican's 12 Favorite Song list on MySpace last month.

    Eminem has the same story-telling abilities to do the same.

    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 sad

      I thought for sure Eminem was going to be a one hit wonder when My Name Is came out. He seemed like a one hit wonder.

      I also figured that Vanilla Ice ruined the chances of a white person ever becoming successful through rap again.

    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.

    The guy is almost 40 years old, he needs to call it quits. He has the skills to make a difference with his music, but instead uses it to add to the cesspool that is the current state of rap.

    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...

    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.
