How do you personally rate Eminem?
Do u c him as one of the greatest, good but not quite great, playing on the white boy thing.

I think hes one of the greatest of all time, top 10 easy.

One of the few rappers who can actually freestyle, very controversial/revolutionary, fights for what he believes in, and is most importantly REAL. Ofcourse Eminem is one of the greatest of all time, hes in my top 5.

That new Akon with Eminem has bumped Em down to 97 on the Top 100 falling two spots from 95.

Akon will ruin a track. Hes a habitual track ruiner. I'm still pissed about The Obie/Akon shit on 2nd rounds on me. That album had promise and tracks like that fucked it up.

On subject, Em's production skills could be way better considering who he learned alot of shit from. Kurupt and Daz both got great skills from being around you know who.

He has a lot to prove...thats how I see it. While The Eminem Show was great, Encore was atrocious... I mean this is a guy who is placed on the top 5or even top 3 greatest rappers of all time in all TV specials. That one album will hunt him for the rest of his career, unless he comes out with some amazing shit. A few years ago he was on my top 5, but now he is not even on my top 15; this is due to me growing up, time passing and discovering many artist who I consider better.

Overall:
Post Encore - 4.5/5
Encore to present (including guest apperances on other albums) - 3/5
And yes I feel he has gotten that bad...

P.S: Him and DMX are probably the biggest disappointments in rap in the last few years.

lol im just playin wit u kid.......... Eminem is one of my fav's, i miss the days before the Eminem Show, that was fuckin ill.

oldie
09-26-2006, 06:15 PM
IMO he was one of the best MC's aroud back in the day. He can freestyle his ass off!! one of his classics when he said something like "hip-hop aint been the same since 2pac moved to cuba on us" - if i remember correctly he was on Tim Westood's show pissed up with D12 when he kicked that. LMAO!!! it was a great moment.lol.

Infinite lyrically is one of the best albums i heard, his flow aint too good, same for the beats but the lyrics alone are some of the best i ever heard.

best album - Infinite

The Marshall Mathers LP & Slim Shady LP are fuckin great albums too..

just such a shame he lost it big style nowadays!

Lil' Ruger

09-26-2006, 11:46 PM
I consider him one of the best rappers of all time. Prolly 7 or 8 in my Top 10.

Altho Encore was pure ass. Only like 4 to 5 listenable tracks. Toy Soldiers was incredible tho.

Eminem up to 8 Mile - Probably my favorite rapper ever

Post 8 mile: -100000000000000000/10, fucking piece of shit faggot

Lil' Ruger
09-27-2006, 12:34 AM
i dont all those singy songs by him i usually like that D-12 raw shit like fight music or devils night 40 oz. was mad sick purple hills was good too

Frank Drebin
09-27-2006, 06:40 AM
I aint looking for a arguement but i think he is one of the worst "rappers" ever. His voice is like a little kids and his lyrics are bullshit. I think he is terrible he raps about shit that white kids are gonna think is bad ass so they bump it. Cant stand this guy.

When I was 13-14 years old he was my favorite rapper. Then I grew up. Seriously though, he's mad talented, the Slim Shady LP is a fucking dope and hilarious album, MM LP is great too. Then he went shit. I guess he isn't hungry anymore, as he started writing songs about nothing interesting whatsoever, over shitty beats. As one of the other posters said, it of course also has something to do with discovering better or more interesting artists as your taste in music develops...
BTW, Em should never produce again, he sucks at it

SHRAP
09-27-2006, 07:47 AM
he has some good shit and some bad shit and some retarded fake shit, he has skills but often doesnt put effort into his music but every white kid in the suburbs will still buy every record he makes so he doesnt really have to

i wouldnt put him in my top 10 just cuz of the mentality he has when it comes to makin records, just look at some of his pointless ass singles hes put out, hes put some real fuckin garbage on his albums for sure

Dante
09-27-2006, 10:01 AM
Pre-2001 He was in my top 25, after that, i stopped giving a fuck. Dude is a waste of amazing talent

snapple
09-27-2006, 10:12 AM
top25 greatest of all time no question about it. and this "pre2001" stuff now hes not one of the greatest....come on....i'm sure most of your great MCs on your list have fallen off or never drop shit anymore

He came out raw, got rich, though he could sell "shit" and still make money off it. and guess what he was right, that garbage he making now still sell's like crazy.

Remember me - RBX.

WHAT?!, Eminem fell harder then Wu-tang, ouch. Wu-corp faggots shouldn't be allowed to have opinions. When eminem speak the WHOLE country listens, the ENTIRE country, even ppl that don't listen to rap, he's been on tracks witht eh greats and flipped them. His concept of Marshall Mathers is ILL, he's amazingly successful, probably the most successful music artist in our current time, ranking with Micheal Jackson. Lyrically he's brilliant, even Rakim, whose dick alot of you like the taste of, said Eminem is probably the best lyricist of all time, He was this successful and skill while being able to fight off the white rapper stigma, his albums are the most hotly debated subjects in the media when the drop, Marshal Matters LP is a classic, probably one of the last great classics(dope influential and successful) and there's not doubt he's a genius. Faggots wanna get opinions about the man cause they don't like "without me"....Em is probably the GREATEST RAPPER OF ALL TIME, and im not an eminem fan.

Yeah, that's why the WHOLE COUNTRY listens when Paul Wall, Fred Durst, Vanilla Ice, and 80% of the 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 underground rappers speak. Dont try to insult anybody cause im not the online beef type, infact If i were you i'd kill myself.

look man, why compare to the wackness ? i for a fact, know Eminem is a talented MC. all i was aiming at was the sentence i quoted from you. Eminem, BESIDES being a natual talented MC, also has mass appeal AND also happen to be white. in a case like that, alot of ppl are gonna listen, and the whole country when you break it down, the majority of the population is white.

fred durst is a good example, im glad you brought that up because yeah, he's white too, and for a while ppl listened to him but the problem is, he turned wack. his music got crazy corny and shit hit the fan. Eminem's been crazy consistent up until Encore but shit still sold cuz he built up his fan base.

i dissed you cuz you dissed ppls on this site, dont get it twsited, i already had/have respects for Em's skills.

plenty of other motherfuckers worthy of the top 10
eg:
rakim
krs one
big daddy kane
kool g rap
chuck d
nas
biggie smalls
jay z
q-tip
mc serch (if you gonna pick a white rapper this is the guy)
posdnuos

i aint even sayin this list is definitive, but shit even ice cube, ice t, snoop dogg etc

eminem used to be dope, but he sold out and watered down his shit, none of them guys above did except for jay-z and nas but even them guy still get respect
eminem needs to drop an album on some real hip hop shit for him to get any respect back
hes a great emcee but there are many other that make him not 'top 10 easy'

09-27-2006, 11:10 PM
3.5 out of 5 just because he fell off a lot... but he's that dude that has a few tracks I play sometimes to laugh, lines like "Original Bad Boy on the case, cover your face/Came in the place blowed, and sprayed Puffy with Mase" are what makes him great. Before he fell off he was one of the G.O.A.T. IMO, but he fell off enormously...

underground rap is basically white rapper central, nobody listens to them, the whole nation doesn't pause for a moment paul wall drops a cd and fred durst got fans cause he had bangin songs not cause he was white and making music.
