Eminem Eminem Official Website Eminem Youtube Channel Complete Discography I'm a Hip-Hop fan! No secret and any hip-hop fan has to have at least a stance on Eminem. The guy is one of the greatest wordsmiths in hip-hop period. He was found by a guy who's not only a genius himself but has a great ear for talent, Dr. Dre. Dre hasn't only discovered Eminem but Snoop Dogg and both artist have crossed over into the public consciousness more than any other rappers before or after. Eminem is so good that even those who would have potentially been reviled by some of the darkest, most insane material have crossed over into enjoying his music. I believe there's a reason for this and it's also the reason he never runs out of material. Eminem's writing is simply about Eminem and it's a raw exposure of the man himself. For every success he's had and every failure he's had he's written about it. For every line he hypes himself with or takes a shot at another with he exposes his flaws and takes a shot at himself in another. He's about as brutally honest about oneself as they can get and that's why he's still relevant. People like honesty in the end and can forgive people for their actions if they take responsibility for their actions in the end. My reasons musically for liking him is he actually has the balls to sing in his choruses which not all rappers do. He has a great balance between fun, poppy satirical hip-hop songs and darker malevolent gritty hip-hop. He'll go outside the box and experiment with different sounds and he comes up with lyrical phrasing and rhythms I've never heard anyone do before. The guys not even my favorite rapper of all time (that's 2Pac) but I really respect him and since his new c.d. Recovery is really grabbing my ear I think it's time he had a thread! My favorite Eminem tracks: Guilty Conscience (this and Forgot About Dre were fun tracks and showed he keep up with Dre) The Way I Am (seeing this much anger expressed with such emotion made me an official Eminem fan) Stan (Using Didos vocals on this was brilliant and made Em's best single IMO and Dido's career) Sing For The Moment (liked the use of the Dream On sample, sounds like it belongs unlike other rap tracks) Without Me (my favorite pop single from Em, I was doing this on karaoke recently ) Mockingbird (The best sentimental track to his daughter Hailie IMO and an example of his singing chorus's) Shake That (Great song to dance to at clubs) I Remember (not a friendly song at all It's a vulgar vicious diss track against another artist, Everlast! I love the song but don't bother if extreme language bothers you in the least!) Part II will deal with the most recent material of the last two albums which will have more tracks from each!
