Emily Bjurnhjam, Saturday, 12 January 2008 03:49 (nine years ago) Permalink

Eminem died the moment he thought to himself "Gee, let me remove every ounce of humor from my albums and emphasize the soap opera! Oh and...I'LL SING on a few tracks too!"

for the record I really loved the Slim Shady LP, and to a lesser (albeit not much) degree, The Marshall Mathers LP.

It’s not brilliant but I love how he’s not only attacking Trump but his own fans who support Trump by literally saying “fuck you” to them. I imagine there’s actually a big overlap of Trump supporters and Eminem fans.

Might not seem like a huge thing but if there’s one thing he gives (gave?) a fuck about it’s his fans.

otm. But I wish he'd framed the song around his contempt for the people who voted for him. It may not have alienated fans: nothing Americans love more than to feel contempt for other Americans.

I can't say I really dug this (it just didn't seem very good tbh - and BET Awards rap ciphers are usually one of my favorite annual events) but y'know whatever good for him for using his platform in this way.

how much are we looking forward to Trump's clapback and a week of more dumb grandstanding/media attacks

tbf I will fully cop to my ambivalence being at least partly rooted in the fact that I've never liked him. His technical skill is undeniable but his exploitative combo of self-absorption and opportunism (not to mention his 4chan-style LOOK HOW OFFENSIVE I AM schtick) has always put me off.

I remind myself every few months that his sales have remained impressive for years:

In the United States, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling more than 792,000 copies in its first week, becoming the second-biggest debut of 2013 and the second-largest sales week of the year, only behind the debut of Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, which bowed at number one with 968,000 in March. The Marshall Mathers LP 2 logs the sixth-biggest sales week of the past five years. The album also marks Eminem's seventh No. 1 album.[106] In its second week the album dropped to number two, selling 210,000 more copies.[107] In its third week the album returned to number one on the Billboard 200, selling 120,000 more copies.[108] In its fourth week the album dropped to number two on the Billboard 200, selling 199,000 more copies.[109] The album sold 1,727,000 copies in the United States in 2013, making it the second best-selling album of the year.[110] As of April 2015, the album has sold 2,244,000 copies in the United States according to Nielsen Soundscan

TMMLP 2 was released before Soundscan included streaming. I wonder how a new album would sell now.

i expect there will be some people who would ordinarily never bother checking out an eminem album in 2017, myself included, who will at least give the album a cursory listen/stream just to see if he delves further in the direction hinted by this promo appearance. not to say that that would necessarily push the needle significantly, but merely to point out that commercial risk was far from not the only possibility to consider when weighing the decision to do this. given the proximity to his forthcoming album release (it's likely coming out in about a month) i would guess that his label felt the ~buzz~ would be beneficial.

i don't expect a large sales decline whatsoever.

such a bizarre release. preemptively noting in the verses that it might(/will) get completely eviscerated doesn't mean it's any less deserving of such. it just... doesn't really go anywhere and is already pretty well-trodden territory for him thematically. a meandering mess.

beyoncé was an appropriate choice for the chorus given the untouchable persona she embodies in her media image. but unlike her own recent work that provides just enough of a glimpse to feel personal and soul-bearing, on this she still seems very much behind the barrier, and the simplistic tune doesn't give her voice enough room to redeem it. (on that note: the industry needs to acknowledge that it is no longer 2011 and no one wants rap music packaged with skylar grey choruses. they literally are currently trying, and failing, to make that happen with macklemore too.)
