    I don't think it was directly a lack of drugs and alcohol. He's been on record saying he lost his confidence to rap post-addiction, but he was talking about pre-Relapse relearning to rap. He seemed completely confident on both Relapse and Recovery (tho they have other issues lol) but I think the fanbase being split on both those albums affected his confidence more than he let on. And when drugs are a huge part of your life for so long you can have a sort of identity crisis when you get sober and are learning to live life without substances. It's like what Walon (Bubs' sponsor) said in The Wire: Getting clean's the easy part. Then comes life.

    Em went one direction with Relapse, then the other with Recovery, then hinged on nostalgia with BME and MMLP2, then released horrible side projects like Shady XV and Southpaw, and Revival was kind of a culmination of everything that had been bad about Em for the past decade lol. With Kamikaze it def felt like he was getting his confidence back and with MTBMB it seems like he finally cracked the code as to what middle-aged Em should be doing.

    Yeah I think Side B especially (even over side A) is the best sounding em album from a sonic standpoint (and album in general) since Relapse. I’m not sure he if got new engineers or what but whoever mixed and mastered the album figured out how to truly make middle aged Em sound good. Reminds me of how Alex Tumay has the magic touch with Young Thug and Seth Firkins (RIP) had it with future.

    What if @Donkey Kong Country have split personality disorder? That explains DKC and Joey, just like Eminem and Slim Shady

    Random thought. As witty as Eminem is nowadays with his bars and flows, his credibility back in 2001-2004 > any era

    "Someone's gonna get killed and I swear to God
    If someone so much as even touches one of my people
    I'll put a million on his head
    And you ain't got the funds to match or counteract it
    But I'd rather rap than get into this gangsta s---
    And it ain't because I'm a b----
    It's because I ain't a b----, I don't endanger people that I'm with
    I'm a general, I ain't Bush, I don't send my soldiers to war
    I'm right there in the middle of the s--- with 'em, so when I do get 'em"

    d---.

    I will never understand why people act like expanding your music taste beyond Em has to mean Eminem instantly becomes s--- and it's now embarrassing to listen to him. In general I would say that I have a wider taste in music than most here considering this is a strictly rap forum and very little if any posters here seem to have much interest outside of it. I go from trap, modern rap, 2000s rap, gangster rap, ska, pop punk, metalcore, death metal, deathcore, thrash, alternative, indie, enjoy boy band cookie cutter s--- like JT, classics like MJ, s--- like Adele etc etc etc anything you can think of. I have an open mind when it comes to music. what's funny though is I will say I would never be caught dead listening to s--- like NF s--- like that I've tried and is legit too cringe, but yeah all in all at times I go months without listening to Em pretty often and grow tired of his music but in the end he will always be my favorite artist period. You can expand your taste without suddening realizing that Em has just become the biggest s--- stain in music history.

    It's funny rap fans who have a deep hatred for Em remind me of metal fans back in high school and metal fans in general a few years ago. Every "real" metal head wanted to prove that he didn't listen to that "faggy emo hot topic" s--- and was some "tough badass who would knock your teeth out in the pit" and looked down on anyone else. Those same people eventually grew out of that phase and listen to those same bands they used to trash talk and can appreciate both sides of the coin.

    I love Eminem's goofy love songs full of corny pickup lines like Heat, Remind Me, Those Kinda Nights, She Loves Me.

    "f--- it I'm the male, let her come to me"
    "sparks will fly, I'd be shocked if they didn't"

    Love that s---.
