    True, that makes sense. I agree his verse is fine, some good lines. The end is pretty bad though. I think it would have been much better if the beat didn’t change as well. Seemed unnecessary.

    Exactly. He does that a lot lately,, beat switches.. unfortunately that also (90% of the time) means he changes his flow into screaming, or fast, or choppy. This verse is a good example. Lyrics are fine, and I like most of the verse flow but some parts he just has to either rap fast or do other retarded shit. Still think this is one of his best recent features flow wise though.

    Agreed...
    Very bizarre to basically say no one like himself listeners to Em, basically stating he’s wack and hardcore dudes from the hood don’t care about him...yet Conway signed to him to get pop culture exposure which results in more money than independent route....

    I expect Em to postpone their Shady career lol he is sensitive and in this case rightfully so....50 Cent popularity came out of his connection to Em...great timing, great artist but you can argue the influence of Em co-sign in music if you want to make money

    Agree, also like Em verse...and not a good look for Conway to try to throw shade at Em...Royce da 5’9 knows who cuts his checks...

    If you want to make money in hip-hop, getting co-signed by the biggest white artist is the best route lol the amount of white fans that will want to listen to you, buy your shit and go to your concert drastically increases...white people may spend more money in hip-hop then any other ethnicity...i would like to see the statistics on that

    Yep. One of the few times the beat switches actually worked imo was his verse on Medicine Man. I’ve heard people say that it “doesn’t fit in with the rest of the album” or “doesn’t fit the song” or “his lyrics are whack,” but did people actually listen to the whole album? I mean Snoop brought it so hard, no one barely recognized who he was. Prime Kendrick went in, and Cube, X, Conner, and Game all had crazy verses. I don’t see how Em’s verse didn’t “fit” the album? One of my favorite verse since his comeback (along with “Need Me” second verse).

    Sidenote. Compton had some f--king spectacular songs and verses. Sure, it’s no Detox but definitely underrated. It’s just tougher in this generation since things come and go so fast, I think we miss a lot of good long lasting music.

    1000% agree.

    I'm not always a fan of agressive eminem but on Compton it worked. All artist rapped kinda 'agressive' (cube, xzibit, kendrick, paak, snoop) and the first part of Eminems verse is amazing. 2nd part is solid as well.

    Compton is a great album. Perfect combination of vintage Dre w a more fresh / newer sound. I really like it tbh.

    Yep very weird he would say that. He could have said something along the lines of “Ya no one in the hood is playing Eminem BUT Em is definitely not a guest in the house of Hip-Hop. He is much more than that” I don’t think some of these guys are very smart lol. Em (hopefully) knows no one is bumping his shit in the hood, so I don’t think he would take offense to that, but who knows he is kind of a pussy tbh. But Conway agreeing with Lord Jamar has gotta piss Em of haha. Em is basically giving him money, an opportunity, and a foundation to get his music out there. Curious to see if anything comes of this?

    Exactly, don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Agree 100%...especially when you haven’t made it big yet lol basically sabotaging your own career...and that goes in any industry, if someone believes in you and gives you an opportunity

    To be honest, I never heard of Conway, west side Gunn, until I heard they signed to Shady...I think they are good and I like them better than boogie....I think the amount of exposure they get from being with Em is incomparable....I’m sure there are many people like myself who only heard of these buffalo guys through Shady...

    Anyone else hear of these guys years before Shady deal?

    Conway's views on Em not being bumped in the hood is the most rational one I've heard.
    He's saying complete facts. Not everyone can relate to Eminem's subject matter and it's totally fine. Not all want to listen to his fast raps over trap beats. They'd rather listen to the rappers who talk about the life they're living.

    But at the same time he's giving Em props that he cares for the culture and made sure that his friends ate too.

    Well done Conway. Lord Jamar can f--k himself.

    Wasnt westside Gunn the one who was the big fan of eminem? I thought I remember Conway saying that, when they were growing up. Gunn was the one who was the legit fan of EM. I'm surprised conway had a song with EM. Unless like you all said, star power. It does seem to be a thing that he does a verse on everybodies projects though. Hoping they get a HOV verse since they have the managment deal with rocnation. Or is that just benny and Gunn who had the management deals? Bc Conway wasnt in those pics

    I knew slaughterhouse, I followed royces career the entire way. I herd budden when pump it up came out but I didnt care for it. Now when the mood muzik shit dropped I started to be a fan. And I knew of crook bc death row and then I had read about joell bc the aftermath deal but i hadnt actually herd him rap until the slaughterhouse track on buddens mixtape.

    Yelawolf I herd a song or 2 and didnt care for him, and I still do not care for him

    I didnt know of boogie. But I'm not that big of a fan of boogie. Hes a little too heavy on the melodies for me. I dont think hes bad but just not my usual go to. Although he can rap when he wants to.

    And griselda I'm a little ass backwards. Bc I herd benny first. And I was a fan of him instantly. Bc he has that pusha t/lloyd banks/Lox vibe. And then I herd Conway and Gunn bc of him, and bc Royce did some songs with them. So only bc benny and Royce.

    Conway only speaking facts as a neutral. That isnt no shade towards Eminem, everyone knows Em aint bumped in the hood like that and thats the reason hood dudes will always have HOV and Nas ahead of him but at the same time i can guarentee them same hood dudes respect Ems pen game regardless of subject matter. The best street track hes been on is Jadakiss, styles p - D block tune and you had them rare occasions where hed jump on a hood track and still destroy it back in the day eg. Lean Back Remix.

    Oh yeah and vlad is corny af, never rated him.

    I can’t watch this right now. What does he say? Hopefully shits all over it.

    f--king hate Budden as a person. He has definitely some great songs and verses though. I don’t really understand what makes him the end all, be all on rap opinions? Guy is such a CRY BABY
