    He is flowing and it's clearly from his MTBMB days but I hope he is done with this kind of delivery

    It’s not completely terrible but it’s very mediocre and close to being bad. Structurally the song is all over the place. There’s some cool wordplay and all that but I’m not a fan of Eminem’s monotone delivery on most of the track. One could say it contrasts with LL’s more energetic performance, but I think it more so just showcases that Eminem’s boring cadence brings the energy down despite being spit quickly. LL’s verses were forgettable and corny.

    This song goes in one ear and out the other. I don’t feel the need to ever listen to this again. It’s mostly just a bunch of word vomit under the thin veil of “lyricism”.

    I was 7 and heard My Name is on the radio. My mom turned it off cuz she heard him talking about impregnating the Spice girls. Then I went to school and a few weeks later all kids in my class were dressing like him, and saying Chika Chika Slim Shady. Thats when he started to really blow up, and it was inescapable. Then about 3 years later I entered Middle School. I lived in the Southside of Chicago, in like a s-----y hood but my mom was tired of the violence so she made me go to a southwest suburban school. And that’s when I realized how massive Eminem truly was. Like I remember it to this day. Anyways, my best friend stole his brothers Eminem Show Album. We would burn the song on CD’s blank so our parents didn’t know we had Eminem in our players. I be jamming to it at basketball practice and on the bus. My mom eventually got use to me listening to Eminem as I grew up. When Recovery came out, I was finally of age to like actually appreciate the literary skills and depth. Rock Bottom & Sing for the moment struck a chord with me ever since I was a kid. And recovery got me through my Emo teen years. So it’s incredible how Shady is still out here impacting lives and having a global hit in 2024. You don’t realize how much time passes, and how many verses he wrote that still resonates 20 years later.

    I don’t think I’ll ever know if you’re a troll account or not. Walk the line of trolling and sincere, really well.

    Yeah that song sounds like it don’t know what it want to be. They both were flowing. But on first listen it didn’t really do anything for me

    Just with some of the things you come out with and the over the top, tribalism with Eminem. I don’t know if it’s a bit or just how you feel.

    Still Adding it to my Eminem playlist when it’s on streaming. The ending also reminds me of his EPMD 2 verses.
