    500 mg Better make sure you're packing a wallop.

    Your opinion’s like a broken calculator - that s--- doesn’t count

    1 of the worst bars Eminem has ever spat. Generic trap beat for 70% of it & says absolutely nothing of substance but some of it is decent as far as technical ability goes. Putting a DJ Premier feature here is not only a disrespect to a GOAT but also a bigger waste of time than a pocket watch. (See, it’s not hard)

    4.5/10

    Meh, sounds like you're mad over Premier not having a bigger impact on the song.

    I don't see why a line has to be "hard" to come up with in order for it to be good. It sounds good when he says it, so I really have no problem.

    My only real problem with the song is the "This instru's mental" line, s--- just makes me go "ehhh, really?"

    That’s 1 aspect of it. Why would you feature a legendary hip hop producer for the last 30 years for the first time in your 25 year career span scratching 2 words over a song that won’t resonate outside of Em’s Stanbase as it’s a whole lot of nothing?

    A line doesn’t have to be hard, but that’s what a simile’s intention is or wordplay, especially combined with the fact all of these songs are almost completely void of any substance or content... so many misfires littered throughout Side B. Awful, awful, inexcusable puns, if you say that sounds good then... lmfao

    The self-proclaimed rap god shouldn’t be saying lines like “Your opinion’s like a broken calculator - that s--- doesn’t count” & be surprised when the industry & fans of hip hop don’t take you seriously, you sound like a parody of a rapper.

    Like someone said earlier today, he sounds like Weird Al on Side B lol

    calculator line is an intro little punchline, not during a song. And your problem is that you lack a sense of humor. The line is just playful and funny. Most of the problems people have with new Eminem is that they are simply not funny people trying to criticize a rapper who likes to be funny and crack jokes.

    The reason why Eminem being funny is so good is because he also has a different side to him where all joke's aside he'll destroy anyone. He's a real person who can be silly and serious. Most rappers present only one side.

    I find Eminem's humor in line with mine, knowing that silly is being silly and serious is serious.

    Joy and pain, fortune, fame, torture, shame
    Choice I made, swore someday
    The world'll pay, less to lose, more to gain
    Daughter's raised, yesterday, glory days, adored and praised
    Ignore the hate, address the fake
    Toured with Dre, tore a page from Jordan came
    Destroyed the game, before you came, enjoy your stay

    Lone sniper, I hold a microphone like a loaded rifle My dome's brighter, all I spit from my skull's fire All that's missing's a motorcycle with the chrome wires, spoke tires And y'all are flow biters, so I don't gotta Explain why they call me a ghostwriter
