Interesting what he says in Be Careful What You Wish For about Encore being Illmatic in a few years, obviously it's an exaggeration but he has a point.

Not something I necessarily agree with 100% since Encore really ISN'T up to par with those other albums and is a clear step away from what makes him great, but still interesting to see him address at least how we perceive his discographical (made up word) career. I can see him being right to a certain extent once it's all said and done, but that remains to be seen.

Here, I couldn't help but listen to the exact lyrics again:

Every CD critics gave it a 3, then 3
years later they go back and re-rate it
and call the Slim Shady LP the greatest
the Marshall Mathers was a classic
the Eminem Show was fantastic
but Encore just didn't have the caliber to match it
I guess enough time just ain't pass yet
a couple more years that shit will be Illmatic

these songs are eh.

i like whats on relapse better than them both.

it reminds me too much of encore, not content, just sound.

i know its not possible, its like asking rza to rap in his gravediggaz style, but id rather have em rap the way he did on slim shady lp. or what he did on relapse i really dont mind. but how he sounds on these two bside tracks i just dont feel him when he sounds like that.

'Be Careful What You Wish For' is better than the whole Relapse album IMO
