That's true, I mean Cage changed a shit load on Hell's Winter from Movies For The Blind, and I love HW a lot more. The thing is I think there's a certain line some people don't want the artist to cross. For example Cage on his last album, and people who aren't feeling the subject matter on Recovery.

But at the same time, people complained about the subject matter on Relapse...then complained about Recovery. It's all just bullshit. I just like good music. Unless it's Wu, because they suck.

Hmm, maybe people just couldn't get past the accent on Relapse and bashed the cd for that reason. I prefer Em when's he's on the crazy violent tip, but at the same time there was some damn good songs on Recovery.

I much prefer the subject matter on Relapse, but Recovery was superior lyrically, IMO

I agree with Slang, I'm just waiting for Em to get out of his emo phase. He can still rap no doubt, but the songwriting seems to have gone with the drug use.

His song writing has IMPROVED...what are you talking about? When was Em writing bridges and gluing his flow to the beat before now?

This is all opinion, but it seems like the direction of the songs have changed. When I listen to MMLP, I feel like the choruses are breaks in between the rapping - I can't wait to hear the next verse. They seem to be there in order to keep the song in a traditional structure more than anything else. Listening to Recovery, it feels like the songs intend to exhibit the choruses rather than the rapping. This might sound pretty petty and a minor gripe, but it makes a big difference to me.

Not really, I mean he really hasn't changed his subject matter dramatically or anything like that. This album definitely has a more emo vibe to it that I'm not feeling at all though.

I am all for artists changing their style and subject matter. I have no problem with Em changing his subject matter, but I'm not feeling it this time.

I remember an interview Kanye gave a few years back in Playboy. He was talking about the genius of Black Eyed Peas' Lady Lumps or whatever that song was titled. He said he applied the same strategy to Gold Digger. Basically, the point is to cram as many hooks as possible into the same song, increasing the chances of 'hooking' the listener.

If that's not whoring yourself...

In response to the op, Lupe shouldn't make the types of songs that might be heard. Thank god the fine folk at Atlantic understand.

i never complained about the subject matter on Relapse, i loved it, lol

anyway, you say he glued his flow to the beat but is that necessarily a good thing? Personally i dont like the sing songy flow and the AWFUL bridges that are in his new songs. I want raw spitting






^^ reasons why Em is a top 10 mc to me, just listen to that vocal clarity, FLAWLESS lyrics and delivery!!!!!

Then don't start shit.

How the fuck is Eminem "preppy"? Are Ed Lover references "preppy"? You don't have the slightest fucking clue what you're talking about. Period. Do yourself a favor and stop talking if you're going to look that ignorant.

dude chill out honestly, you take shit i say personally. EMINEM'S LIFE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU WHY THE FUCK DO YOU GET OFFENDED WHEN I WANT TO EXPRESS MY OPINION OF HIM. You told me to "not start shit". NEVER, did i start shit with you, i gave my opinion, but knew (for some very strange, almost stalkerish) reason you would get PERSONALLY offended by an opinion that has nothing to do with you.

And its not about Eminem being "preppy", but that guy is what i see him as now. Also, those are the types of fans his new album appeals to, and i know this for a fact.

FACT

That's a FACT. No, that's hilarious.

I'm not offended dude, you're a little bitch IMO lately. Just like KJ, you get offended whenever somebody disses on Wu Tang because apparently you're down with them or something. I really don't give a fuck what people say about Eminem, as long as it's got some factual basis and doesn't contradict itself every 5 seconds. Tell me, what's so preppy about him instead of posting some gay picture (like KJ would)?
