    I said to my self when his first cd came out, "please this dumass is not gonna get any where" But i guess i was wrong, he has quite a following.. The only thing more annoying than his fuckin voice, is his fans... I say this becuz its a bunch of wanna be hard white boys..Almost all of his songs is coming off as trying to be funny or sayin some stupid shit..I mean listening to this is like I said to my self when his first cd came out, "please this dumass is not gonna get any where" But i guess i was wrong, he has quite a following.. The only thing more annoying than his fuckin voice, is his fans... I say this becuz its a bunch of wanna be hard white boys..Almost all of his songs is coming off as trying to be funny or sayin some stupid shit..I mean listening to this is like listening to about 3o secounds of each track.. Nothing serious just stupid shit over and over, and on this site he has fans that either thinks he's cute or thinks he's hardcore in some way... And still is he like the biggest rapper of all time according to Marcos R.. What a fuckin joke, you have rappers like Nas, Fat joe, BIG, tupac, DMX, Big L, method man, Dre, Wu tang, need i say more.. Most of you mother fuckers who like slim is listenin to blink 182 and mudvayne and shit.. So shut the fuck up and know about rap before sayin "he's the best, best cd, best rapper, best look, ahh im gettin fuckin sick.. Thats like saying The Strokes is the best in rock.. I give slim 2 more years before he gets fuckin old like all the other white rappers... laters Collapse

  1. Eminem just may have made the best rap-rock album in history
  2. With each successive album Eminem finds new depth and excitement within the same themes and structures he used way back on The Slim Shady LP, so even if new songs contain earmarks of Eminem classics, they still feel reinvigorated.
  3. Uncut

    Behind the hype and the swagger, he's still baring enough of his soul for The Eminem Show to be compelling theatre. [Aug 2002, p.118]
