I'm just as sick as the next guy of seeing stupid Eminem dickriders. But gimme a damn break, 75% of this board hates on Eminem so hard. He gets mentions in "Worst rapper" threads, and it's gotten to the point that it's nearly a unanimous decision that Will Smith > Eminem battle-wise. You've gotta be fucking kidding me. Fellas, don't get blinded by hate. I'm with the majority that thinks Encore was wack as hell (but I will say that it's still better than half of the releases this past year), but how the hell do you not owe the man respect. MMLP, SSLP, and even The Eminem Show are very good CDs. He drops a lame CD and now you people throw him to the curb, saying this ghost-reading actor can beat him on the tip. Don't get it twisted, I'm no Eminem dickrider, it's just I've seen so much ignorance that I've broken my silence. Don't get blinded by hate.
