Let's face it, Em is still a goat "rapper", but as a musician he's shit, and has no artistic drive.

    Em can rap. He just uses shit producers and shit beats with expired concepts that were already mediocre 7 years ago.

    Songs like Believe and Offended just show that the ability is there. It's just the direction that he takes it with is not just used, but is executed poorly. You can take a good concept and execute it poorly and it'll be bad but appreciated, you can have a used concept with good execution and it'll be okay at least. But Revival is a try hard in a bad direction.

    Yelawolf has been making better music since love story. I'm finding it hard to find a post hiatus Em single better than till it's gone. But that's because Yelawolf knows what he wants to do conceptually, and though he's criticized for being corny country rock, he makes much better production choices and seems to have more artistic drive. Em needs to take a page out of how Yelawolf turned his career around and do the same. Stop with the grandiose arena rap rick rubin beats and (alex da kidd produced) pop features. Revival has made people appreciate Beserk and Relapse for f--k sake. Scrap the sellout Eminem (that isn't selling anymore) and go back to being creative. Even if nobody bar your core fanbase will appreciate it.

    Walk on Water is not poorly executed. It's just not what people wanted to hear, and they just cant get over that.

    Lmao at Walk on Water being poorly executed, it's a solid track, hell it's my favourite song from an overall trash album, and one of my favourite songs this year. Em's flow was on point, he sounded good, and he was truly self aware for once. I've been saying this since day 1 and I still believe Walk on Water is 10/10

    Except that, I mostly agree

    I respect your opinion bro, but c'mon saying Walk on Water wasn't executed properly is just wrong

    Eminem just needs great producers.
    Remove Rubin, Alex Da Kid.

    Bring In Dre, DJ Premier, Timbaland, No I.D, Metro Boomin', FredWreck.
    We'll get a classic within next 2 years.

    Agreed. It just seems like he's run out of things to talk about.

    Also his voice is too low and growly and upfront in the mix on most of the revival songs

    He just needs a good mentor again. Back in the day he had dre giving him direction on what to release. Now, looks like dre has been replaced by Paul.
