    His lyrics are all about flow (rhythim) and matching sounds (rhyme)....and he does these two things well. But what he is actually saying isn't clever. There's no word-play, no imaginatively phrased punchlines.

    His lyrics are best described as prosaic.

    Listening to Eminem is like listening to someone talk in a fancy way.

    "I sit back / Wit this pack / of Zig Zags / and this bag / of this weed / that gives me / the shit needed to be / the most meanest emcee"

    Sounds good and all....but yea.....prosaic is the word of the day.

    You agree with me now, don't you. You realize it now too, don't you.

    Em on Til I Collapse : "My thoughts are sporadic / I act like I'm an addict / I rap like I'm addicted to smack like I'm Kim Mathers / And I don't wanna go forth and back in constant battles / the fact is I would rather sit back and bomb some rappers / So this is like a full blown attack I'm launchin at 'em" ....etc. etc. etc.....

    sounds good and all...but it's still prosaic. It's like he's talking......even tho it rhymes rhythmically, the wording is straightforward, there's no condensed meaning....

    I don't like his style. Not every one who's into hiphop thinks Eminem is dope, LOL.....where'd you get that idea? record sales?

  4. Em is dope. To prove my point, if you caught the Def Jam awards, you would have seem em execute a Slick Rick tribute flawlessly. You need to catch that before you pass harsh judgement. I'm still waiting on a DJ Premier / Eminem collabo.

    yeah sometimes em sacrifices saying anything worthwhile cause he too focused on the technicalities of his flow and rhyme schemes

    Only on Relapse is that sort of true, though. The Eminem Show is one of the most emotion-packed albums I've heard.

    I guess you hate people who think then... which is what idiots do.


    Anything that is consumed should be examined. You're lazy and are attracted to anything that is superficially appealing.
