    On the internet he might be adored. He’s got fans that no matter what stand by his side. But if you meet a eminem fan in real life. The majority listened because he was white. Or women listened to him because they thought he was hot.

    If you ask a eminem what em song is there favorite. It’s smack that or a song about his daughter. You bring up renegade, patiently waiting, dead wrong etc etc. and most people don’t even know wtf you are talking about.


    Eminem is overrated but underrated at the same time.


    Agree or disagree?

    technically speaking, he is the biggest rapper of all time

    as in, he is literally that and thats a fact that cant be disputed

    but obviously it means nothing

    Eminems career contribution of quality music doesn't stack up to other artists. He has more bad/mediocre music than good/great music...

    He's overrated...for every person that underrates him there are hundreds or thousands of people who are naive/racist and think he's the best/only good rapper

    This is not debateable

    No other rapper has fans who will say they are the best rapper while simultaneously not listening to a single other hip hop artist

    Eminem is the best rapper alive? To who? Since when? What in the f--- neanderthal kind of opinion is this to tout? Bro, are you stuck in 2001? Come back to 2018 with the rest of us. Thanks.

    i dont think you realize how much he sold and how far off drake is for example, and no...99% there will never be a rapper who sells more than him

    and yes, when it comes to biggest rapper of all time, sales is all that matters...same for movies..and for everything else in life...all that matters is money

    you can easily tell the children from the adults in this thread

    you guys will grow up one day and realize the type of music you pump while getting high means nothing in term of historian value

    Might be, but this is still speculation. The fact that Eminem has the same international reach that started since his heyday (99-04) is beyond impressive, his popularity is still unmatched no matter how many units someone like Drake has pushed this decade...Its shocking to me people still listen to Em, I was never a fan even when he was the biggest

    Mmlp and sslp is not 'only good thing he did' though. His features, 8 mile, the classic s--- on his average albums.. still agree that rappers like jay kanye etc have a better catalog easily but still

    nothing laughable about how you would use that as a factor measure, and yes sales is excellent and arguably the only way to measure popularity, you need to stop being an idiot
