One of my favorite rappers, but I can’t deny the evidence. I started to like Eminem when I was a kid because I could relate to him in a sense that he was an outsider that didn’t fit in. That’s how I felt. I also had a temper when I was a kid even at an early age. So I related with that anger side and wanted to use poetry as a way to release that stress. Which on the surface Eminem could have done that too but he also allowed himself to give in to that negative energy and allow himself to be taken over. Something he often writes about in his song. What we thought we’re just metaphors were actually not. The blatant and obvious things that we ignore right in front of our face. “A lot of truth is said in jest”, a line Eminem rapped in ‘Say What You Say’. That’s why I never put too much emotions and connections into celebrities because at the end of the day, we don’t actually know these people. You can like something a person does without actually liking who they are as a total person. Not everything is black and white or absolute.
