Eminem If Em released R2 instead of Recovery is it safe to assume he would be retired by now?

    Relapse commercially s----d. Not Afraid & LTWYL saved this n----s mainstream career and Recovery reinvigorated him to the new generation of teenage chicks. If he stayed on the Relapse path with the serial killer indian-accent tyraide would he even be active now? I'm willing to bet R2 would of sold horribly compared to any of his other albums because his Buzz disappeared, and he would of fizzled out and since he doesnt do anything he would of dropped outof the public and to occasionally be heard of.

    Recovery made Eminem relevant again
    Recovery is Eminems most important album

    If he truly wanted to please his OG fans. He shoulda released Recovery first and then Relapse to solidify his legacy.

    But he didn't? Your saying it asif he made recovery by accident he realized it would be better to make that album rather than release relapse 2 so what's the question or topic here?

    He made Recovery due to fan backlash (in my opinion anyway)

    no he wouldn't have retired, he would just be an artist that doesn't care about what his fans think.

    tbh he could leave those fans who cried, "WI WNT SLIMZ SHADEEZZ BAK!"satisfied if he released Recovery before Relapse.

    I dont see why he would. Relapse sold like 6 million. I wouldn't really call that a failure
