It’s cause your mind is set on this generation type of music.Kamikaze is drizzling shit
In my eyes, it's actual content we can somewhat grasp or relate to.It's pretty bad and idk who his audience is in 2018, he's just an angry old dude at this point lashing out at everybody and apologizing for his last albums
I don't know how you can say that tbh. Rap has always been segmented dude, there was always a mainstream side. Even when Eminem was peaking, Pretty Boy Swag was the most popular song at the time. I don't know how someone can listen to Lil Pump and think rap is dead.It’s cause your mind is set on this generation type of music.
You’re just looking for catchy music with fire production. You don’t care about lyrics anymore cause literally no one does except niggas like Cole, Kendrick, etc.
Edit: K, I meant I liked Fall not Kamikaze. Spotify got the wrong title's for the song.
There's plenty, and I mean plenty, of actual, good content in hip-hop right now that many can grasp or relate to. Maybe not in the mainstream, but there's something for everyone out there right now. Hip-Hop right now, "mumble rap" and all, is in a great place. And to me listening to a 45 year old dude who's way past his prime calling people out and doing almost nothing different does nothing to excite me.In my eyes, it's actual content we can somewhat grasp or relate to.
Like nigga said something like, "Why does everyone wanna fuck my bitch?"
And I look at the songs I've written and I'm like, damn 80% of my songs I've written about fucking someone else's girl. Or even just all hip hop artists just say that.
Eminem did the same shit back in the day where he calls out people so idk if that's something you can critique unless that's just not your thing?
No one thinks rap is dead unless it's the blind fans who can't accept that music has evolved and always will. And if anything, lyricism is at it's lowest with production being at it's highest.I don't know how you can say that tbh. Rap has always been segmented dude, there was always a mainstream side. Even when Eminem was peaking, Pretty Boy Swag was the most popular song at the time. I don't know how someone can listen to Lil Pump and think rap is dead.
You just have to look. Tyler and Mac Miller put out albums that Em wishes he could in this day and age. Em's disses weren't even solely focused on mumble rap, he was more concerned with people tweeting how bad Revival was. You'd really think Tyler and Budden are industry shills? Nah, they just thought Revival was trash.
Music evolves and niggas still expect him to drop the same material over from when they peaked. Drake 2007 sounds nothing like Drake 2017, but Drake adapted and made it work. Eminem tried and it didn't work out. Some of the tracks from Kamikaze are legit the type of music he used to release, but now niggas are mad cause he's sounding bitter? legit there's no winning.andie said:Em should've admitted that it was in this drop, and try to make music with more meaning like he used to. If he came out with this album and released anything akin to anything off of Curtain Call, or hell at least Recovery I would've felt different.
Mans taking shots in the dark, and that's why he doesn't stack up with his peers. You can't put him next to Kanye. Because Kanye helps the artists he influences to help the scene grow, instead of getting mad people didn't like his work.
Bro, you're an artist yourself.There's plenty, and I mean plenty, of actual, good content in hip-hop right now that many can grasp or relate to. Maybe not in the mainstream, but there's something for everyone out there right now. Hip-Hop right now, "mumble rap" and all, is in a great place. And to me listening to a 45 year old dude who's way past his prime calling people out and doing almost nothing different does nothing to excite me.
I understand Eminem has always been one to call people out and be controversial and vulgar and all that. But when you're now a certified legend in the business and your last couple/few albums have been average at best, why are you now deciding to drop a new one and call out a handful of the new generation and dig up old beefs from the past? It just comes off as bitter to me and him trying to hard to appease his old audience at this point and to be fair it seems to be working. So I can't hate too hard. Just ain't for me.
I'd rather see him be a helping hand for some of the newer guys, (Like he's done recently, signing people to his label), than to still be trying to play the angry guy and breaking down people who are doing their own thing and making their own sounds for the genre. Comparing Eminem to almost any new rappers is pointless, two totally different times.
I would definitely say it's his best work in years, but that's not saying much coming from me who has disliked almost everything he's done since like 2006.Bro, you're an artist yourself.
You've probably written tracks that you know you fucking love but knew it would never blow up.
Some people adapt, some people don't. Eminem didn't adapt, but I'd still say his material on this album is far from garbage and still better than most of his shit in the last eight years. I don't know if it's just not your type of music or if we're listening to the different things. Like what did you really expect from him in 2018 truthfully speaking?(In regards to his music not having people under his wing)
As an artist, wouldn't you wanna release music you like without receiving criticism? I don't think it's a crime to be mad if people didn't like your album. And he just handled it the way he usually does, but I guess times change and people react differently.
I won't call you names or anything here haha but I am well aware of the importance and talent of 80's-90's hip-hop and oddly enough I still prefer this era over all of them. There is so much diversity in the genre right now, just takes a little digging past the mainstream. There's a time and a place for music with a message and then for just flat out fun stuff. I like it all.To be honest I miss the 90s and 2pac not Eminem's bs albums of some white guy trying to become something in the rap game. Yeah, I know my shit btw and most if not all new rap is such trash if you listen to the 90s stuff at least they had a message. Of course, there will those that think 2010 plus is great but I wish you would listen to the 80s and the 90s to see where everything came from. Also, we didn't need idiots to tattoo their face. This will start a shit storm and I will be called names so here it goes...................................
