I'd rather turn this club into a bar room brawl. Get as rowdy as
Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall.

Listening to Eminem when I was in my mid teens dropped my IQ by 1/10th total and now I am ashamed he is counted as one of the most popular rappers in the industry.

Rappers sing about shooting guns and beating women and such, but odds are they'd scream like little girls if they heard gunshots directed towards them and faint at the sight of their own blood.

In fact, a lot of males freak out seeing their own blood, but women don't. Makes sense I guess...

Rap music nowadays has garbage artists who lack talent of the sorts but create catchy repetitive lyrics. In Eminem's latest album "Recovery" he redeems rap music by showing that nobody can even touch him. Reading his lyrics puts me in awe on how he came up with all that and how well he can make it flow.

I'm not saying I agree with all of his views, (a lot of them seem to be untrue by the way) but he is one of the greatest rappers of all time.

I respectfully disagree good sir.

Rap nowadays is party-based house beats stuff, the gangsta rap that's everybody equates with the hip-hop genre (the womanizing, gun-toting stuff) is a remnant of the past, that more or less died with 2pac and biggie.

And as for eminem, people have to understand that his "slim shady" persona (misogynistic, homophopic, and violent) is an act he uses to push records and mask insecurities. Listen to the track "Stan" off the Marshall Mathers LP for a serious take on Em and how people are all too ready to misunderstand the message in his records.

There's a message in Mr. Mathers' records? I just thought he was garnering attention in a desperate attempt to feel loved with controversial, violent, homophobic, misogynistic lyrics that offend all but the lowest common denominator, but then what do I know, he's the equivalent to the common Internet Tough Guys that couldn't properly handle a firearm if their assailant was point-blank in front of him.

And the way he trashes his ex and his mom in most songs, yet reveres his daughter, it makes me worried for his daughter's safety. When she gets ideas of her own (Say, around 11-13), will he become the classic abusive parent trying to suppress her individuality for his own security?

Yeah, the message is: It's all an act, take this seriously at your own peril.

His oldest daughter Hailie is like 15 or 16 right now and Eminem has adopted 2 other daughters that are related to her, I can't remember how but they're like half sisters.

Eminem has changed ALOT since his old ways. He doesn't even play Slim Shady anymore, if you listened to Recovery you would see how he's changed. You see a more personal/kinder side of him.

And Eminem is NOT homophobic. Incase you don't remember, to prove he's not, him and Elton John did a performance together at the Grammy's a few years ago.
