    The greatest selling rapper of all time outsold 4 great rappers when one recently came out as gay, one is not marketable at all, one made an album over the tron soundtrack and one is joe budden

    none of this is surprising

    The problem with it is that he cant 'built' on it.

    I mean the verse is really great to me, but it was a response to people talking s--- about Revival and Walk on Water. That's always been the case with him, give him a reason to make a great song and he will. People called this a step in the right direction but honestly it was just a one time highlight that won't continue on his next project.

    Why, because what is he gonna do? A whole album aimed at his haters? Who wants that?

    He will continue to combine everything he has done before because its obvious fans don't know what they want from him despite hundreds of threads saying they do. Some want serial killer stuff, others want pop s---, others want rappity rap... he makes that clear on Walk On Water (also why I think that song is really good and the negative responses are strange to me).

    People loved Believe, but how can he use that to make more songs like that? Then there are new fans that like his pop music, which he also wants to please. Conclusion, he keeps trying to make what 'the fans want' while there is no such thing.

    nobody wants pop s---. Believe is such a terrible song. He on his way out it suprised me when no big rappers supported the album. Kendrick even tweeted out xxxtentxions and jaden smiths albums but not revival. One great verse doesn't make up for a terrible album

    Then why were LTWYL, Not Afraid, Monster, River so succesful?

    Didn't know there were people that didn't like Believe tbh

    because they're pop songs??? What do you mean? LTWYL I think is Eminems best selling song right? I don't see any stans asking for that at all even tho it sells well, just because it has radio play doesn't mean the fans want it, if the soccer moms do then so be it I guess maybe thats who he's targeting

    Well I'm not talking about Eminem fans only.. music fans in general. The fact that those pop songs got so much praise made him do it over and over again. Teenage girls and soccer moms that praise LTWYL are also Eminem fans that listen to his stuff :idk:

    Actual stans that sit in their moms basement will like whatever he does so that's never a problem lmao

    I think if he just did what he want everyone would like it a lot more, I'm not saying he has to go full till I collapse every track but more songs like castle, castle seems like the only genuine song on revival. Either way this doesn't make up for a terrible album imo but its a good verse

    I mean most of them are only successful because of the names on the track. LTWYL River and Monster have a very cliche rapper x pop structure and the content on two is very generic as s---.

    He could of easily made the Beyonce song cliche af but chose not too. Tragic endings that pink song that other s--- song also follow that geneic forumula

    Not afraid was an anthem and Marshall’s last ever real solo hit.

    It's getting so old hearing all this Revival hate on this forum. The album is a classic. It's nearly flawless with songs like remind me, believe, like home, heat, etc. y'all are just hating on it because it's "cool" and everyone else is. Stand up for what you believe in.
