The funny thing about Eminem is that he's a superior lyriscist and he doesn't rap about hoes, guns he doesn't have and never used, drugs he sold and use a fake image to sell records/attract people. It's like a "what you see is what you get". Eminem Show was good considering all the heat that he was taking for the MMLP from certain critics. I don't consider him as the GOAT because in my mind he still has a lot to prove, even with the 4 albums he dropped. Don't sit here and compare new shit to the old shit all the time...just listen to it and learn to deal with it. If you like it, fine. If you don't, don't fuck with it.
