    I like the green ones

    Seriously though, I'm not into that kind of music, but I did enjoy the movie 8 Mile.

    He had alot of controversial music, but he also had heart-touching music, music about life, not about the cars or the money. He did have some silly *** songs when he was on drugs.
    But I think the only reason he did the songs with Pink and Rihanna, is to let EVERYONE know he is back, not just the loyal fans, ya know?
    Like when he did the song with Slaughterhouse, thats the eminem we know. Or Almost Famous etc. etc.
    8 mile was an excellent movie.
    When his career is over or he dies, I will just be as hurt as those people that loved Michael Jackson, it will be a blow to the hip-hop genre, and we will lose yet another person that is true hip-hop. Regardless of what he is doing now.

    He can still rock stadiums. And he lyrically murders any rapper he features on a track.

    I get a lot of "lulwhat?" from people because I'm an avid post-hardcore->metal (Not deathmetal) kinda guy, but I also enjoy rap music... But honestly, there aren't a whole lot of rappers I will listen to, but Eminem had a handful of songs that I would listen to, and I used to think that no other rapper could top him, until I found this guy (imagine this is an arrow pointing to the vid).

    Now, I'm still thinking Eminem is the best when it comes to rapping about his life and his hardships, but when it comes to passion, I don't know, maybe these two are tied? The only problem is this guy really has no publicity... The reason why is obvious, but irregardless, fame doesn't make a better rapper, passion does.

    he was totally sexy in that movie... I like Eminem, the way he expresses his anger, his songs are my best way to exteriorize my anger, when I feel that way...

    Although I prefer Akhenaton, Rocca, rap hardcore ... but that's too french and old....like me, to even quote ;___;

    Wow - I have not liked rap since it changed from being fun to listen (love song type of stuff in the 80's?) to being angry, and about killing people and bedding other people's, people, materialism and drugs.

    This was stunning, thankfully I didn't go with my first impulse and not listen to it. He is really talented and his passion to the core for his beliefs (whether they agree with mine or not, which in this case they do) is apparent.

    Thanks for posting it!

    Excellent, really sends a message out there, if he was publicized more, I would be bumpin this, this is inspirational, alot of kids do waste there lives, even though they can stay out of trouble if they really wanted to.
    I also agree with you, Eminem is the best rapper about life/experiences - He is the best freestyler, he does put up the best metaphors, and he sure as **** has gone through alot with drugs/wife/early life/beef/child/proof dying etc.
    The passion part, this man here has a passion to get across his message, for not making a mistake. People call Eminem a sell-out now that he has done a song with Pink/Rihanna -- Eminem will never be a sellout, he has gone through to much to be called that. I mean it's not like he recently did not murder Mariah and Nick Cannons Career right!? Lul nick cannon.

    I think if Eminem.. didn't make another album -Recovery- than Hip-hop is dead. But he did, so we have a glimpse of hope.

    My top 8 tracks on the album - I will give you the links
    Almost Famous - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFWc33WtHeE
    On Fire - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwb8SQtCMLM
    Your Never Over - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGHZ2l7dM0c
    Cinderella Man - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgzSO3yyuUM
    No Love (just because he lyrically murders lil wayne) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nox4w2xiqJg
    Going Through Changes - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xe7oB6VbHoM
    25 to Life - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBz1jGvOhY0
    Spacebound - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40UHCKzGY9M&feature=fvst
    Those are my personal favorites, All of the others would be on this list, but then I would be putting on the whole album.

    I'm not a big fan of Eminem, but I was driving home from work one day and heard Love the way you Lie on the radio, got home and put some guitars onto the track. Probably not something he would do himself, but I kind of like how it turned out.

    What do you think?
