We have all waited a while to see what Eminem would do this go round so without further ado here is the Eminem album. You can stream below.
The album has come with mixed reactions from fans since the release of the first single, with Walk on Water ft Beyonce. Since then, he has appeared on Saturday Night Live doing a medley that included Walk on Water, Stan and Love the Way You Lie.
Will the Real Eminem Please Stand-Up?
Partnering up with Rick Rubin once again, Em has seemingly created another stadium rap album in the same vein as Berserk from his album MMLP2. For die hard fans, this might be a misstep. So will the real slim shady please stand up? Eminem has been increasingly losing relevance in the rap world of today and losing the good will of his fans. Where are the rap features? Regardless the album will still be a commercial success but for a guy who prides himself as one of the best lyricists still making music – is that enough?
What more can be said of a guy who was once considered a “Rap God” and made powerful emotive music to now chasing trends like a dog chasing a car. Eminem seemingly hasn’t produced something relevant since his Bad Meets Evil project with Royce Da 5’9. Maybe Eminem should take a step back and focus more in position as a producer or label head? It also is very telling that he overshadowed once-an-up-coming rapper Yelawolf who now seems like a Shady records backbench player. Em seems frustrated and so do his fans, so nobody wins when he puts out lackluster music. I don’t know at this point. Take a listen. Judge for yourself. But I am getting off this Shady rollercoaster.
