    Alot of people have different opinions on Eminem. I personally love his music, and always have.

    He manages to reach violence, humour and good music all in one verse. Hes a very unique rapper.

    My personal favourites are toy soldiers, mosh, big weenie, lose yourself, fight music, and plenty more.


    Whats your views on Eminem? (No, im not asking to be flamed :scared: :lol: )

    i think he's like uber controversial. lots of deep lyrics and everything, which is always good, considering the bad reputation he tends to get from a lot of people. although i don't necessarily like that kind of music, I have no problem with him, personally.

    Eminem is a genious...

    He made great songs, great albums, worked with many other artists, and he's very talented...
    He only did one thing that I didn't liked, that Smack That music with Akon, and that Shake that Ass... those were to bad...
    And he did several things to Moby... I'm not sure, but he didn't liked Moby, he even had in the Without Me's lyric something like this: "Moby it's over, let go, nobody listens to techno"... really good one :lol:

    Favourite Eminem Songs:

    Cleaning Out My Closet, Mockinbird, Toy Soldiers, Lose Yourself, Mosh, Soldier, Without Me, Slim Shady, and many others...

    I hate Eminem, and I'll tell you why, but I've got to say this;

    I LOVE Moby

    To me, Eminem has good lyrics but constant thumping of rap ust annoys me. For one, you can't understand what he's saying unless you look up the lyrics, which is kind of off his mark, don't you think? Really though, the only good parts in Eminem's song is where he ripped someone else to sing the Toy Soldiers chorus and Dido.

    I hate rap, I don't think it's really a form of music when people shout or talk their whole chorus. The rap world are good lyrically because, well, they can fitthousands of words into their songs.

    And, for Eminem, hundreds of people listen to trance, especially the japanese with producin the muscal genius of Ayumi Hamasaki.

    You obviously have no understanding of music. Rap is and always hasbeen a form of music. just becuase you dont like it, doesnt mean iots not music.

    2pac, Dr Dre, 50 Cent (not any more), Eminem and many many others have all become rap legends. Their music is meaningful, and they dont "shout" while rapping. And i always understand waht Eminem is saying, maybe you need your ears cheacked?

    I also love Eminem's music. I think that he does reach out to a larger audience with the different themes that he addresses in each of his songs. I was never a fan of rap, but Eminem is an exception.

    I hate all rap except for eminem. Some of it is not rappy....as in the bg to real slim shady or something. Oh, and the chorus to Lose Yourself. I only have when I'm gone on my mp3 player for when I want to show off my subs LMAO

    I agree, wait no I don't....

    I feel a slight contradicition in your statement.:shocked:

    Firstly, I agree, Eminem is a lyrical genius, I have seen him Live in Manchester and although wasn't the best concert I've ever been to, It was good.:yesnod:

    You defend rap correctly for what it is, but then you put 50 cent into the hall of fame!!! :yikes:

    Please, the Black Britney Spears does not deserve to be put in the same sentance as Dr Dre or Tupac. But that's probably a whole new thread.

    Eminem is a punk ass kid from the suburbs of detroit. He did not live in detroit. He lies about his history and is not a rapper, he is POP MUSIC. Face the facts. he whines in every song he's ever done. He sits there in his studio claiming 8 mile when he never lived there. meanwhile esham was up on 7 mile making his stuff in the underground and still has a loyal fanbase to this day, yet nobody's ever heard of him and he's sittin on some nice cash. Eminem is just a pop sensation that fell off and people are confused becuase pop rap isn't usually so glamourized in the media.

    Uhhh I really don't think his lyrics are all that great. Like seriously the lyrical content is mediocre at best.


    I like Loose yourself though. It gets me kinda pumped....even in situations when there is nothing to be pumped about.



    *driving to the Grocery Store* "YOU BETTA LOOSE YOURSELF IN DA MUSIC DA MOMENT...." I'm like "F*** YEAH GOING TO BUY SOME BREAD, WOOOOO!"

    I have understanding of music, to be quite frank, having my music pelted with a lot of stuff I can't understand is a test of my hearing ability, I think they work pretty well.

    I said shout or talk, to me, Eminem is like talking, through all of his songs, he's not testing himself vocally at all, and not showing anyone anything. Eminem can write meaningful things, but he portrays himself as completely the opposite. I mean, hockey mask, chainsaw, I'd kind of think "pyschopath" to myself rather than "Wow, this is lyrically amazing!"

    Tank, you're damn hilarious, mate xD;

    Then how is stuff like Slipknot music? Isn't that just plain screaming and killing your lungs basically..?

    That would be the other side of the shout or talk thing I mentioned.

    I facking hate Slipknot.

    Hope that cleared everything :)

    I liked him when I was like 10 but that was only until 8 Mile.
    That movie was so horrible.

    Lol well fair enough... I didn't know if you liked them or not... I just wanted to know if they were classified as "singing" I love RnB, Pop and Female Rock... female rock voices are sooo beautiful, and RnB and Pop are just plain great singing

    "Face the facts? the fact is he is a rapper...lol someones stupid"

    No eminem is not a rapper. eminem makes pop music. listen to some esham if you want some real detroit rap.

    "hockey mask and chainsaw"
    yea... he's trying to cash in on "horrorcore" or whatever the dumbass media has dubbed it...it's a gimmick. again stolen from a group out of detroit called HOUSE OF KRAZEES which is now known as TWIZTID!!!!!!!!

    if you want some real detroit RAP check out:
    Esham
    Twiztid
    House of Krazees
    The R.O.C.

    Half the people in my town here in va beach are better than eminem's stale pop-rap
    Loco - the original VA beach cop killer
    Unstable (TeRReT and SuiSydE) - owners of grimtown records
    P.O.I. Prophits of Insaniti (dr. grotesque and so damn insane)

    They've all been in the local paper for one thing or another and are poppin around here; and they all rap better than eminem. And they're real as hell, as I used to hang out with a lot of the underground people in the area. Unlike eminem crying about kim and his daughter and rapping about his emotional problems, these guys rap about the real ass **** on the streets everyday.

    All i'm trying to say is that eminem is too famous with his record label with marketing and merchandising that his music has to appeal to the key demographic and all that nonsense. Eminem is a tool of the record companies, they're using him and he's getting paid; while they get paid even more. All because he is pop. He is not targeting himself to the real rap audience, instead he is targeting himself to the crowd that his label says will bring him the most cash. THE ONLY reason eminem has done well is because he's not a typical rims and ice rapper which that stuff is garbage, and he's white so it's gimmicky!

    Check out some of the underground **** i mentioned for some real rap beyond the pop-rap radio play bs.
