Em has always been insane from a technical POV.. i mean he's one of the rappers with the greatest mic presence. but he ran out of creativity a long time ago. just to think that the last time he managed to craft a really good album was in 2002..

he surely re-invented himself with Recovery, which was a smart & welcomed move imo, but the way he did it was the worst possible. he's lost everything that made him special just to appeal for a wider audience. that album seemed so lazy and generic to me. NO ONE i know liked it except some diehard Em fans who would take anything he puts out, even if it's garbage.

agreed. I thought Recovery was actually embarrassing at parts. Like it actually made me cringe. Wow.

On the flip, I'm kind of interested to hear the new Bad Meets Evil though.

Hell: the Sequel is disappointing imo. it's really no more than a bunch of songs Em rushed to write & put the whole thing out quickly.. subject-wise it's less pussy-ish than Recovery, but the corny-as-hell punchlines are still there, plus Lighters (with the Bruno Mars hook) is just as embarassing as the other song off Recovery.

i'll give him a last chance.

yikes. That sounds terrible. I figured that going back to BME would result in him y'know... trying to recapture his old style/sounds. Rough.

I feel like every album he's put out in the past decade has had me thinking "this is the last chance I give him." haha.
