i don't think he is the greatest rapper alive. he is the best white rapper alive lol. he was the first rap artist i started listening to, along with dre. i like his older albums the most, like lp and marshal mathers those are his best, i really don't like his new stuff as much though he will always be one of my favorites.

Sure~! He is the greatest rapper. When he raps, he is so attractive. I like his songs can really express his emotions. And let me can feel his emotions. His songs are so special too. His songs are not about love, girls, money but real life. I like all of his music.

I think his perspective is unique and his story of rising up in the rap world is very interesting. I think he was positioned at the perfect time in his career to gain stardom. Obviously Dr. Dre had something to do with that. I don't know if he is the best but he is definitely one of the most well known rappers alive.

Anyone that can come from 8 mile road in Detroit and have the kind of wit that eminem has deserves success. He is certainly not a perfect person, but who is? He is a hard worker and a person with great tenacity. Detroit is not only the motor city it is a music maven of great talent. Isn't that a funny thing for a 55 year old Detroiter to say. Not at all!

I think Eminem is a very respectful rapper among the rappers we know. He has grown so much in the last 10 years and I think he just keeps on producing the right songs. I love listening to his songs because they have a meaning, not like most of the other rappers' songs. Eminem shows the white, black, and the shades of grey in between, that a person can have. I love his music and the lyrics are just perfect and show many situations that real people have to go through.

I don't think eminem is the best rapper alive. I think that he's talented but he is helped very much by his marketability in that he's unique, that he disses on other celebrities and that he has a twisted relationship with his mom and wife/girlfriend. When it comes to skills, you guys should try to listen to a song called Family Rap by Breakestra. In that song, they feature some people who I would consider as some of the best!

i think that he is good and really talented....he may not be the greatest but surely he has carved his name deep in this genre of music that is dominated by black rappers who are also great....i'm a fan of eminem...i think that his rapping has a unique quality..maybe because he is white and he has a distinct type of voice..you actually wouldn't imagine that his voice would sound good for rapping but he proved evryone wrong!!!!he did it and he made it!!!though his songsmay be very straightforward and very personal but they are never boring and to a point present his angst as an artist!long live eminem!
