the guy got 10 grammy nominations? and just when i thought critics hate him. i myself had been wondering why i like his music. it's plain. it's simple. it's direct. it's not all that tasking to make than most of his contemporaries' music. but the guy is on top of the world right now. do you like eminem? why?

Eminem is one of my favorite rap singers, i usually dont like rap songs, But he only turned my mind towards rap songs. Usually i like soft songs like R&B , romantic, POP etc. But now also like rap songs just because of him, this guy has so much of talent. Hope he will continue to move his way to success. :D

Eminem is the best and greatest! His amazing with bending words, the best lyricist to date in my opinion. Ya, most people want "Slim shady" back, but guys Marshall is grown up now! His a father, and has taken control of his life. His music is amazing, because he puts his heart and soul into it.

they used to question rapping as an art. but they're all wrong, right? it's plain, simple and direct and if there is something hard to sell it's the plain, simple and direct works of art. but great talent is bound to seep through anyway no matter how simple others deem one's creation is. 10 grammy's is its equivalent right?

I love Eminem's songs too. Like you said they are straight to the point, the way he makes his lyrics, it shoots to your heart, you can relate to what he's saying, or if not, you can feel what he's saying. It's amazing. The way he raps his song is captivating, it's not hard to follow, it's a rap but full of emotions. Words are strung together well that they make sense, not like other rap songs that string words together just to fit the rhyme, the rap and the beat

Eminem :) I personally think Eminem's music has gone down the toilet. His past few albums are a complete insult to his original work. Eminem was once the best emcee to ever walk this earth, his album infinity shows how skilled Eminem really is. All the newer albums are garbage, even his latest one is not that great. I would agree that his latest one is an improvement to his previous albums, but again, nothing surpasses his old school swag, when Eminem use to be able to form multi syllable rhymes everytime he got on the mic, that was skill. Now it's just commercial chatter, he is spitting what the world wants to hear and not what he wants the world to hear. The reason he is doing this now is because there is no more market for underground rap. People don't seem to understand what real music is anymore, all they care about is the instrumental, no one bothers listening to lyrics. Regards, Fathom

that's a great angle you gave there and everything you said is true. but no matter how commercialized marshal is now there's still that greatness in him that can never make him too commercialized. that's why i think he got the 10 nominations and is considered one of the most powerful musicians of all time.

I like Eminem a lot, I prefer 2Pac, but he's my second choice when it comes to the "G.O.A.T". The thing I like about Eminem is that he's keeping 2Pac alive, by doing mixes rereleasing his stuff etc. and I can identify myself through Eminem's lyrics.

I like Eminem because he is so new. When he first come out, he was the first successful white rapper. It's not about how much money does he have or anything else. The thing that makes him the famous guy that is he today is his lyrics. He speaks not only for himself, but for an entire category of people. I personally found in Eminem lyrics and that's why I like him.
