So I have been listening to the new Eminem cd, Recovery, pretty much non stop. I really think Eminem is back to the hard core, angry lyricist that he used to be. Hence the name. His drug infested days seemed to have ceased and the gross “music” he was making with D12 has gone away. Thank goodness. I all together just stopped listening to him. The Slim Shady LP and the Marshall Mathers LP were raw. I mean down the nitty griddy no holding back kind of music. I can’t stand when artists conform to the pop world just to sell a record. I don’t think he conformed per say, it seems he just got lost in the drug world when he was working with D12. Em’ and Jay-Z are doing a two city tour, one in Detroit and the other in NYC. I would totally travel to the dirty D to see that concert. After seeing them perform Renegade on David Letterman a few weeks back, I fell back in love.
If you like the old Eminem, I highly recommend his new album.
