    you liked him untill 99? dude was still spittin ill shit for the next few years... just because u might not have liked the real slim shady or Without Me doesnt mean he wasnt doin the damn thing. Em is versatile as fuck. he didnt start yelling exclusively till Recovery,

    Yeah but Em did write his stuff, according to sources, Rakim ghost-wrote for Will and Luda too, also Nas.

    Besides I think "biting" a style is just paying homage, emulating somebody is a nice path to find yourself.

    Even though the MMLP had some radio-hit-pop songs (which were still dope lyrically) it had some really raw shit.

    "When I go out, I'mma go out shootin'
    I don't mean when I die, I mean when I go out to the club, stupid"

    "I'm sorry Puff, but I don't give a fuck if this chick was my own mother
    I still fuck her with no rubber and cum inside her"

    I don't wanna quit, but shit, I feel like this is it
    For me to have this much appeal like this is sick
    This is not a game, this fame, in real life this is sick
    Publicity stunt my ass, conceal my fuckin' dick
    Fuck the guns, i'm done, i'll never look at gats
    If I scrap, i'll scrap like I ain't never whooped some ass
    I love my fans
    But no one ever puts a grasp on the fact i've sacrificed everything I have
    I never dreamt i'd get to the level that i'm at, this is whack
    This is more than I ever could of asked
    everywhere I go, a hat, a sweater hood, or mask
    What about math, how come I wasn't ever good at that
    It's like the boy in the bubble, who never could adapt, i'm trapped
    If I could go back, I never woulda rapped
    I sold my soul to the devil, i'll never get it back
    I just wanna leave this game with level head intact
    Imagine goin' from bein' a no one to seein',
    everything blow up and all you did was just grow
    up emceeing
    It's fuckin' crazy
    Cause all I wanted was to give Hailie the life I never had
    But instead I forced us to live alienated, so i'm sayin'...

    i have alot of his old tracks like when he was in the outsidaz from jersey, he was a fast rapper but people were to slow to keep up so his style changed and he did infinite which was a classic but people said he sounded like nas lol but ok so then he changed to the white trash rapper which fit him and then changed to a angry kinda fast rapper now

    yeah he should have, but I like the fact that he went solo w/o punchline, I never liked him....

    yeah, punch came off as a dunce. dull uncreative basic lyrics, mediocre voice and no charisma

    must have been a childhood friend or something

    Actually words had an EP called 'For the Shows'. It was great, better than Mirror Music imo

    Had a great collab with Q-Tip called Makin It Blend

    I once posted that Treach is worthy of top 10 honors and a lot of people didn't agree with me... Treach is easily one of the most bitten emcees of all time... he changed lyricism and made "anthemic" hip hop as we know it today... "Wickedest Man Alive" is still light years ahead of a lot of lyrics today.

    heard all of them

    was probably too hard on him but I'm not a fan at all

    never really felt he's enhanced anything
