im not a big fan of rap at all, but i hate when ppl get into arguments like this. First of all do not compare rap to rock, u just can't. So eminem is not better than phish and phish isnt better than eminem, they are completely different its like saying apples are better than oranges. What i mean by that is it is just an oppinion one person might say apples are better and another might say oranges are better, neither is wrong. Furthermore eminem i believe is definately really good at wat he does, and i think that ppl should at least listen to a few of his songs that arnt on the radio (alot of his radio songs have a poppier sound to them) before denouncing him as terrible. Also its just stupid for ppl to say that he doesnt care about his music. Just because its different than what you listen to doesnt mean its trash with no meaning, he writes almost if not all of his songs, and obviously cares a lot about them.
