    ...is so stupid.
    Em's view that people don't like Revival because they pre-judged via the tracklist is so deluded. He still hasn't reconciled the reasons why people don't like it. People dislike it because it's contrived, confused pop rap trash with 10,000 features and some of his worst production and writing. If something's good it's good so even though people did pre judge via the tracklist, if you hear it and it's good then you're just like 'oh s--- it's actually good'.

    It’s an awful album and that’s mainly the reason people hate it but I do get his point about people pre judging track lists straight away. I remember when Kings never die was announced and people were hating on it immediately because of the song title and Gwen Stefani and it actually weren’t that bad considering some of the other stuff he was releasing around that time. I hope he continues with surprise releases

    yeah people do but if it's good it's good.His idea that people wouldn't admit it's good 'because they don't wanna be wrong' is so stupid lmao. Like, as fans we wanna like his s---. So even if we initially were like 'this is gonna s---' if it didn't... we'd be pleasently surprised, we'd be like 'yoo, I thought this s--- was s--- but it's actually fire', he's in denial

    He also underestimates his audience. I'm listening to him talk now on the pod and about Revival and he's like 'people think I'm rhyming bat n cat' it's like... no we don't lmao. We get it. We hear the sylablle rhyming, we get the wordplay. He underestimates us so much.

    When I saw the tracklist I actually had high hopes for the album lol. I thought we were getting some insanely repayable/easy to listen to Em

    I don't know what he was thinking during the work on Revival, but his logic is flawed nowadays.

    In that new XXL article he said that he'd rather show the best rapping skills instead of making good albums. Well, then may be you shouldn't be offended when people or critics say that you release trash. Such approach makes all of his conflicts with critics artificial and empty.

    Agreed to a certain extent. He is so far off the mark of why people didn't like it.

    I disagree with your comment about his writing though. His writing and verse structure were great. It was the production, the over saturated pop features, the mess of cohesion and the promo it got that ruined it.

    If I had a choice between being the best rapper or making the best albums, I'd rather be the best rapper. That's how I rap, to be the best rapper. Obviously, all of that is subjective, and everybody's got their favorite rappers, but in my head, I would rather do that than just make good songs.

    What a delusional old man. You can’t be the best rapper if you aren’t making good songs.

    Agree with all that except... the writing; a lot of the writing was great but it was SOOOO chock full with puns, and such awful puns more than ever. Like for example... 'Like Home' or w.e that Trump anthem - so, okay, he's tryna make a serious political point right... and yet... he f---ing... in a very serious tone contrives about 85 sentences to get to 1 pun of 'ate of / adolf hitler', im like... bro... how tone deaf and autism can you be

    But bro... rapping isn't that hard. Making great art is. Once you get the knack... and that's all it is, is a knack, of putting sylablles together like 'high pie, I might fly, why die... like, the s--- is easy. That's not impressive. And Em underestimates his fans, he thinks we don't get what he's doing, it's like... bro, we do... we just want you to make great art again.

    He has no idea what to write about, and this leads to mediocre stuff. Or, maybe, he still has things he can cover, but for some reasons doesn't want to. It doesn't matter anyway. He believes that critics trash his music because they don't catch multis. Seems like the thought of a critisized song/album being unlistenable just doesn't cross his mind at all. "Listenability" is a subjective thing of course, but with Eminem it can sometimes feel like he has deliberately found the bottom.

    And that's exactly why he hasn't put out a great album since Relapse.

    Relapse was him taking on a persona and writing as that personal to make a cohesive album.

    Ironically, Relapse is some of his best rapping he's ever had even though he was trying to make a good album.


    It really sucks people s--- on the accent because ever since then, he went pop and became everything he hated in his early years.

    Revival is just poor. But they can't all be winners.

    I wish he would explain why he stopped the original drug themed roll out and went with the patriotic s--- just because Trump won.

    You can, though. He was talking from a technical standpoint... You can rap your a--- off and still the song would be unlistenable to the average person

    I feel like whenever Em tries to make something "artistic" he always accidentally substitutes the R in the word with a U
