anybody think Eminem's voice (not his rhymes, his voice) sounds a little like Jadakiss'

no.

The Brainwasher, Saturday, 12 January 2008 03:32 (fourteen years ago) link

never thought of it but that constipated tone he affects sometimes is a little bit like Kiss.

Eminem was really good once upon a time. What a fabled, far off land.

let's start an internet rumor that he's dead.

Emily Bjurnhjam, Saturday, 12 January 2008 03:49 (fourteen years ago) link

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.

I guess this means it’s the end of Eminem being the only rapper on rock radio.

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.

it's not even really about the lame #resistance sentiments tbh it's just that he sounds like a middling slam poet and the portentous staging makes it sound even worse

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

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 11 October 2017 15:17 (four years ago) link

I disagree – his enjambments, pauses, timing are his best in fifteen years.

I'm not debating the musical merits of the freestyle (i wasn't the biggest fan), I do think that it was a worthwhile message--how many white pop stars have spoken out this forcefully against Trump?

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.

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 11 October 2017 15:44 (four years ago) link

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.

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 17 January 2020 19:38 (two years ago) link

one thing that is kind of interesting as Em has developed is that i think he started running out of words to rhyme with other words and he increasingly relies on breaking a word into two-parts at a syllable break so he can rhyme the first half of the word with the end of the next bar instead of the whole word

i don't know if i explained that very well

this is the history (and tragedy) of English poetry though b/c English sucks as a rhyming language and because Em knows 40 words.

I mean, the most positive thing I can say about that video is that the time she took to record it probably meant one less minimum wage earning store manager getting berated for being out of something. That cadence and delivery before she started the actual rapping is way too finely honed from years of condescendingly mocking baristas.
