    I have reason to believe that 2016 will be a better year than most for Eminem career!

    Before you post this :drake5: or :hov2: please hear me out.

    Reasons:

    1: Best Friend

    Eminem started 2015 off with an 'okay' verse with the best friend feature. Even though i don't hold it in a high regard it still has some bright spots.

    And who you think's my Glock that I use?
    That I pull from to get my strength up against these haters
    And he'll be waiting at the gate when you get sprayed up
    Sending you hoes straight up to deal with my (best friend)


    :ehh: not bad but not great. not quite a reason to be optimistic but, we are just getting started.

    2: Speedom:

    Before you say " But nick, thats the shady we know and hate" " hes just rapping really fast"
    I agree. Just like Best friend, it has its bright spots:
    All this anger pent up inside
    I went up inside a Bennigans diner with a cigarette lighter
    Figured I'd try to set a big enough fire
    That’ll trigger the sprinkler system
    And I’d escape, but the getaway driver screwed up my limo
    Collided with the center divider
    I went through the window and ended up being pinned to the side
    Of a semi fender beside a friend of the guy’s wife Brenda
    The flight attendant from Idaho
    That took an antenna in the vagina hole

    Cause when I pick up a pen I'm venomous
    And I'm as slick as Dennis the Menace

    Like an evil dental hygienist, sinister
    You've been yelling dementedness
    I invented this, I'm the genesis


    Again, the flow there was pretty good ( and upon re listening that part was a bright spot in 2015 )

    3: Southpaw:
    Ok, the main course for Eminem in 2015. With all the hype surrounding phenomenal and that trailer dropping we thought we were getting something great. But alas, we didn't. :sadpepe:
    BUT, That fateful day sometime in July, Kings Never Die Leaked ( MS made that thread :sadpepe:)

    (It) just goes ta show that when my back's against the wall
    And I'm under a tack again, that I'll act as if I'm 'posed ta
    With this pent up rage, cause all these plaques in my office
    On the floor stacked against the door
    Are they just metaphors for the odds of me comin' back again?
    Cause all the accomplishments, accolades, awards
    And trophies just don't mean jack anymore

    If I'm here today and gone tomorrow
    And I'm not gonna be

    :bigquint:

    I could post lyrics in about this song all day but that right there ladies and gentleman is it the peak of 2015 Eminem.

    4: Medicine Man:

    News broke about the "Soundtrack" for the compton movie and soon found out that Eminem would be on it. We then thought " Wtf, Eminems White..?"
    yeah so what, hes still the goat and belongs on this. That beats 1 show in august confirmed what was rumored, Eminem was on it.. and so was 15 other rappers. With all the features, Again we thought " Eminem is gonna be out shined" " Kendrick is gonna steal the show" ( which he probably did )
    BUT, Eminem delivered with his verse :drake3:

    Assault rifle with the sniper scope for this whole time
    Day one, say when to blast, give me the orders, I spray (Uh)

    Pain in the a--- and get shot in the a--- with a paint gun
    Ain't no one safe from, non-believers there ain't none
    I even make the b------s I r--- c-m
    I'm waiting on someone to say something

    Dre make the bass pump and let the tape run for old time's sake
    I spit it straight through, this is take one

    The moment you're waiting for has come but the...


    I quote this because of the censored line, The FIRST censored Eminem line since 2004. What a glorious day!
    I could've quoted the beginning but it didn't give me goosebumps :hov4:

    5: The NYT interview:

    Do you feel like you’re still topping yourself?

    I feel like I’m still trying to. And sometimes I don’t know if that’s always a good thing. I don’t want to make it so that by the time I’m done with a song, you didn’t even understand what just happened. That’s what I try not to do. I’m my own worst nightmare in that sense.

    Because you’re so technically proficient that you can take it to a place where faster and more complicated isn’t always better?

    Yeah, that’s what I mean. Sometimes that’s cool, if the song calls for it. But if I end up starting to record for another album, I want to make sure I approach it the right way.


    The MOST important Reason in 2015! This is what we have been waiting for. He knows that he is incoherent at times.



    TL;DR

    I always try to think negative, because if it was good, it will surprise me so much and make me much happier, if bad, I wouldn't be disappointed.

    but I can't help myself thinking positively on Em's new album.

    I just don't see how people don't like the music he's putting out like I can understand not liking speedom or some stuff from southpaw but the majority is a lot better than what is been in the last few years. Look out for this album in 2016 it's going to turn some heads

    Best Friend is improved and right Recovery style that fits his age. Medicine Man is the combination of Recovery and 2000 Eminem, which is even better. If he does songs like that then his album would be amazing.
