Guys Travis Scott was on top of a *bleep* bird lmao. The dude legit got one of those Glinthawks from Horizon and was singing and dancing on the top op if it.

Concert was great, had chills when the entire crowd was singing Humble.

Eminem fell off long ago. MMLP2 was a solid 6/10 with some decent throwbacks to old Shady but a lot of garbage too. Nowhere near anything Kendrick has ever put out.

I used to hate Relapse when it first came out but it's the only Eminem album I can listen to post-2009 now because you can at least enjoy it and laugh with him on that one. His voice is gone and his flow is mostly off.

I disagree. I like Em's new work alot especially MMLP2, he sounds more mature and grown. Yeah he still immature Shady but he still shows his mature side on Headlights for example.

I cringe alot when I hear his older works (I do that with all songs dissing their parents, like Jay-Z's "Where Have You Been") but MMLP2 is very mature from Em.

Fixed it for you.

I'll go track by track:
Spoiler:

01. "Bad Guy" (feat. Sarah Jaffe)  - Not bad but didn't need a sequel to a classic
02. "Parking Lot" (skit) - ok
03. "Rhyme or Reason" - I like this one
04. "So Much Better" - This one is also good in a funny way
05. "Survival" (feat. Liz Rodrigues) - Flow so bad, song so corny
06. "Legacy" (feat. Polina Goudieva) - I don't like uplifting Eminem music
07. "Asshole" (ft. Skylar Grey) - More meh flow
08. "Berzerk" - His flow isn't tragic in some parts but his vocals are ruined
09. "Rap God" - Best on the album
10. "Brainless" - I like this one too
11. "Stronger Than I Was" - liquidate
12. "The Monster" (feat. Rihanna) - lol
13. "So Far..." - goofy but his flow is soooo annoyingly off
14. "Love Game" (feat. Kendrick Lamar) - What a waste of a Kendrick collab
15. "Headlights" (feat. Nate Ruess) - I'm glad he's coming to peace with the problems that fueled his early career but the resolution makes for cringey music.
16. "Evil Twin" - Not bad

Weird man. You didn't like Legacy? I can only imagine how many kids who are relating to that song and lifts their mood. Especially the suicidal ones.

Eminem is a symbol for bullied kids and issues in middle america. Also on a personal level, I related with him more than others. Dating someone who cheated on me made me relate so much to Em and how he feels towards Kim. That's why I love him more than the rest.

I found all the songs good on MMLP2 except Survival.

He even apologized to his daughter with Beautiful Pain. Legendary album imo.

Also as a final *bleep* you to DAMN. fans, come back when Kendrick sells as much as Em Smile I love Kendrick but DAMN. is overrated. Eminem is the only artist of this decade to match 2Pac sales. Just tells you how many relate to AUTHENTIC true music that really is FROM THE BOTTOM!

DAMN. is the least authentic release from Kendrick? XXX? I love that song but he went against GKMC. GKMC was all about loving yourself and letting go, that they were sinners etc. but in XXX he talks about revenge, basically going against the whole Good Kid theme. I thought GKMC was about leaving gang violence, letting go of death and living rightous.

The overrated album is Butterfly imo. Don't think I ever listen to any song it. Maybe these walls and I.

Damn on the other hand is incredible.

Also stop disrespecting Eminem to make Kendrick look better and vice versa. The art should be able to stand on its own.

Anyway, I listened to the Metro & Nav collab. Deleted it after the 4th song. Goat production thanks to Metro but Nav is just terrible.

Tylers new album is amazing. Love the ones with Rocky, Frank Ocean & Boredom.

Eminem was kind of a saviour though. Saved Dr. Dre's career. He gets so much disrespect for being white despite being one the GOATs

Stop with the race card damnit. It's racist as *bleep*

Eminem stans are annoying? Probably not, because they have statistics to back up their claim. Obviously the majority of people are loving Em's music, or else it wouldn't sell. That's 101

Kendricks music? Nothing in his category beats the song Stan. Sorry Kendrick fans, you earned the number one spot in most annoying fans. Every album that comes from Kendrick "insta classic" "classic" rofl

I disagree. TPAB is one of the best albums of this decade and a masterpiece. But I understand it's not everyone cup of tee.

It's okay if you don't rate To Pimp A Butterfly. There's such a thing as "not for you" in music. The incredible message of that album as well as the timing of its release which coincided with the political climate of that period makes it one of Kendrick's most iconic projects. You don't have to agree. That doesn't change the fact.

I rate it. But some people need to look up the definition of overrated.

I've heard so many call it Kendrick's best album and one of the best ever from any artist. That's overrated in my book. i don't think it's gonna age as well as others. The album as a whole will probably be remembered as a historical event without the actual music being remembered or replayed to the extent of his other two great albums.

"So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street?
When gang banging make me kill a nigga blacker than me?"

Such a iconic line from TPAB. Again I love the good kid persona Kendrick has but he kinda went against that in DAMN. imo. Biggest flaw along with the inconsistencys of the songs on it. But every song is a banger so I understand why people like it. I bump DNA in the car alot but I like the conscious authentic side more.

Have found myself listening to DAMN the least of any Kendrick album. Personally like butterfly the best with GKMC very close behind. DAMN was great but it didn't blow me away at all like the other two did.

Eminem's early stuff is absolutely incredible. His later stuff is shit imo

I think GKMC is the one album where Kendrick has been able to blend his conscious music with club bangers flawelessly. The other albums are either 100% conscious or "consciousy" club hits (like DNA/Humble).

MMLP2 is trash lol. That album buried Eminem's career. He is still a top 10 rapper of all time but that album won't even get into top 100.

Sales have literally no bearing on how great a rapper is unless you only like them because of their popularity. Eminem is the biggest rapper of all time and nothing will change his early career, as much as he tries to make us forget his classics.

At his peak, nobody rhymed like him. Lyrically, in terms of his imagination and the things he talked about; he was fearless and peerless on the mic.

But some rappers age well and others don't. He's part of the latter even if he still goes platinum when he puts out stuff that pales in comparison to what he used to be able to do. Just the way it goes.
