    I liked Revival (acknowledging all the flaws it contained)

    The thing, it feels he lost the magic, swag, and bold personality.

    His body language is so weird especially at concerts, the lumberjack look with the kangol and sweater mostly isnt pleasing, his music isnt smooth. I viewed him for so long as perfect god who couldnt do wrong because he was really that.. he was ultra alpha and now not even beta, he's f---in gama... the Berzerk dance to promote Coachella was corny, his gimmicks are non-funny like acting childish to Paul Rosenberg.. his interviews are all the same, his concerts are all the same, he doesnt have interesting s--- going on. He is not connected to both, the hip hop culture and pop culture, he failed so bad with Revival as whole.

    The bold wittiness turned into nerdy puzzle, the shock value turned into meh gimmick, the beefs turned into semi subliminal disses who no one knows about, the funny moves turned into cringy throw offs.

    Idk.. im still stan, but Em rn is kinda touchable unlike before, even until Recovery era

    Eminem has been 'touchable' since 2004

    And he's not kinda touchable right now, so many others have straight soared right past him no one wants to touch him anymore

    You all who only listen to Eminem and consider him "kinda touchable" in 2018 are so out of touch

    He’s been “touchable” for nearly 15 years.

    Although he musically won the battle with Benzino, that beef ended up ruining him, his health, and his career.

    Edit: to clarify, he obviously was still successful and made some decent to great music post Benzino, but that s--- with Benzino fueled his drug addiction which ultimately negatively impacted his creativity and his music.

    I Murder this Inc as soon as I touch the page
    You ain't gon' have no other choice but to rush the stage
    and charge the mic, and I hope you got the heart to fight
    Cause you gon' have to, cause you ain't got the smarts to write
    somethin that good, to try to come back at me with
    What you gon' do, try to out-rap me with that happy s---?

    I will always maintain this Eminem was the most enjoyable as a fan.

    You know, this got me thinking. What’s really sad and frustrating, this type of verse was probably so f---ing easy for him to write. He’s using simple words, has rhythm, and is catching the beat. Why can’t he do this any more?

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m a rap nerd so I like a lot of his newer rappity rap stuff, but not all of it (as much as I hate the Baby chorus with a passion, I f---ing love those verses so much). Nowadays every time he rhymes, he’s trying wayyyyy too hard to blow people’s mind with crazy, fast technical rhymes. It’s almost like he’s chasing his No Love or You’re Never Over style verses. This isn’t always true obviously but it seems to happen way too frequently. He’s at his best when he uses emotion and simple to understand words yet creates technical and complicated flows but spits them in such a way that they’re easy to understand, are catchy, have rhythm, and are usually melodic in a way that his voice almost sounds like an instrument. This is partly what made him so likable back in the day. But sadly he doesn’t seem to have this skill any more. Relapse is probably the last time he consistently found this magic. But naturally he turned off a lot of people with the accents and subject matter (side note, obligatory Hello>>). If he can figure out how to bring this back on a more consistent basis, I think his music would have a much better chance at being enjoyable.

    He needs to use better beats too. My god is Revival littered with so many s--- beats.

    Yeah, it's like he thinks he absolutely has to push the craft to gain the respect of his peers, but he really should just go back to his roots cuz he still has that untouchable flow to fall back on. Em needs to simplify...

    Yup this beat was produced by him.... What happened to all the production he used to do? "Heartbreak" from Yelawolf's Love Story was dope

    Also Em could benefit from a ghostwriter or two who knows his rhyme style and subject matter...Thats the only way we can get a project where he out does Eminem Show...his mind isnt the same anymore...all Im sayin is he could use a little help...its obvious the drugs helped him rap ...look at Royce he's rappity rappin hard off that grey goose...Em needs to relapse once a year

    That's why whoever talks about him, calls him "God" and "Unotuchable", "The Best", "i can't believe i was near to him" Etc..?
