    Hello everyone,,
    I've been thinking a bit and want to talk about the abysmal album roll out, if anyone cares to read.
    October 2016 Eminem drops "Campaign Speech", along with "don't worry! I'm https://youporn.wiki/ working on an album. here's something in the meantime"
    Then radio silence from him, filled with lots of speculation about Em's participation with the 2016 election, given the timing of this release and its political commentary. h---, I saw rumours that he had some "election day" record planned and was excited. However, the election came and went, and nothing from Em.



    Trump's inauguration came and went, and we get nothing. Then, Big Sean reveals that he has a song with Em coming on his early February "I decided". Cool, https://xhamster.vip/ lets see what we get. We get a long winded verse, that, in my opinion, started off viscous and then dwindled off into poor territory where he starts listing objects to use to penetrate republican commentators. I did appreciate him speaking his opinion on Trump as well as Police Brutality, so that's ok.



    More months go by, no album in march for us f---ing r-----s. Nothing in April besides announcing he'll be on tour in AUGUST. Ok, we wait more months till https://redtube.onl/ August where he does a mini tour in Europe debuting his beard. Cool, at least we're going somewhere... maybe he will discuss the album or give us a little peanut? No, 10 months after mentioning he's working on an album he continues going on as if he never said it.



    60 more days go by and Now we're in October 2017. 12 months after saying you "are working on an album" and still nothing. It was around this time we got an interesting enough askaboutrevival campaign through Paul Rosenberg's instagram. Which led us to a very entertaining witch hunt that we only had to wait 1 year to go on. We get that phone number, and try to decode something-- nothing. Luckily, we dont have to wait too long before Em comments on it.



    He teases "Walk on Water" and people are expecting a Rap God II, where he FINALLY, THIRTEEN MONTHS LATER, continues his solo career. What we get is a pretty polarizing song, that I personally loved, which, somehow, rehyped me for Em's new album despite waiting over a year.



    The rest of the roll out I suppose was fine. The release date was announced by the ask about revival guy, Trevor I believe. The askaboutrevival, medicine, Dr Dre theme was kinda tossed, though, for a newly coloured deeply political revival theme which was confusing but I didn't really care for since he was very political in what we did get (no favors, campaign speech, Fack Trump) He did the usual promo run with talk shows, showing up in public, billboards, etc.

    Then one week before the release drops Untouchable. I'm not really going to talk too much about how good or bad the end result of Revival because My focus is on the roll out.

    I will say this, though. A confusing, long winded, unfocused roll out led to a confusing, long winded, unfocused album. Not saying revival was bad because I still have a few songs on playlist, but its quality definitely reflected its roll out and presentation



    Now, we can speculate why this is, because ... "Paul and Dre told him what not to say" and all.. and he may have had to scrap something major hence the long breaks... he also said he recorded 60 tracks... but the facts remain the facts.

    With MMLP2, Em planted the seeds in October 2012 that he was revisiting the Marshall Mathers LP theme, and it released November 5, 2013 and while this roll out was also long, over a year, it was much more spread out and cohesive. (Survival-COD promo in AUGUST, months before the release. The Monster Megahit promo run with Rihanna, Berzerk as hit solo single, Rap god with SuperSonic Speed... so much more memorable and thought out than Walk on Water, and Untouchable. I guess we can count River too since it released as a single WITH the album and the videos coming much later).

    It followed that MMLP2 was f---in amazing, lol. And the roll out, though started slow, picked up months before the album released and was paced well, rather than revival, which sort of rolled out videos and stuff after the release.

    Thanks for reading
