Advantages: good rapper
Disadvantages: not always taken serious
I think Eminem, Real name Marshall Mathers, also known as Slim Shady,
is a great rapper, while some people take his music the wrong way
and do as hes saying, others take it as help of what not to do, it
helps some and doesnt help others as most things do.
Some of his music is offensive but i think he has had a realy rough
life and finds that expressing his feelings helps him get through life.
I think hes a realy nice guy and most of the rumers and gossip is false,
The impending releases of the Slim Shady LP, his first set on
Aftermath/Interscope Records, already has undergrounded hip hop heads
fiending for Eminem. Chock full of dazzling lyrical escapades that delve
into the mind of a violently warped and vulger yet exstreamly talented
wordsmith, the 14 cut collection contains some of the most memorable
and demented lyrics ever recorded.
I think some of his old records are best like My Fault, Guilty Conscience,
Real Slim Shady, My Name Is and The Way I Am, because they give a good idea
on life, this is why i think teenagers praise him so much, Also Some of his
new songs like "Stan" which is brilliant and was a big hit, it gives the idea on
life about big fans and there idols, also some of the songs he has done with
Dr Dre as a duet, one of the best is "Forgot About Dre" which tells you
because new singers are coming out doesnt mean forget about the old singers,
and makes some of the singers feel unwanted and out of date.
Eminem was in a group before he sang solo called "D12" which have had some
good songs out to like "Purple Hillz/Pillz" which i thought gave the
impression "dont take drugs there no good" while some might decide to
take them, it might get through to others that not to because there bad.
Eminem told D12 that if he gets to the top he wont forget to take them with
him and he didnt, he kept his promise and out came "Purple Hillz/Pillz".
He is just an ordinary person and doesnt take fame and stardom to heart or
brain, as most do change Eminem didnt.
I think Eminem trys to tell everybody that his life went down hill, and
in his lyrics he trys to get the point accross that life isnt all good,
and tells you his mistakes and hopes you wont make the same ones, as what
can happen if you take the wrong path in life you could go through the
same bad life and problems that he has gone through, and he doesnt want
anyone to do that.
Eminem doesnt realy like his parents and relations as they were never
there for him and have put him through a bad life, his problems were
partly there faults, as they didnt care about anything but thereselves,
money, beer and drugs.
There is a book called "The Unautherised Biography Of Dr Dre And Eminem",
which is pretty good to read, written by Kelly Kenyata in 2001.
Also one called "Eminem", written by Sarah Delmege in 2001, which is also
good to read.
There is a video called "Eminem E", which was done in the year 2000, which
is worth watching, also a newer video called "Eminem Behind The Mask
Unautherised", which is alright.
Eminem has had alot of Albums out like
In The Spotlight With
The Marshall Mathers LP
Maximum Eminem/Audio Biography
The Slim Shady LP
Slim Shady World (Edited and Uncut)
Xposed The Interview
Also comin soon "A Tribute To Eminem" done by various artists, should be
My best ones are "The Marshall Mathers LP", "The Slim Shady LP" and
"Eminem Platinum", I recomend these...
Thanks for reading and i hope this helps to understand him, and maybe
become a fan if your not.
