Eminem is someone who I have listened to on the radio. I have liked some of his music. He is an interesting character. His second studio album The Slim Shady LP was a critical hit. The album’s genres of West Coast hip hop, G-funk and horrorcore tells its stories from the perspective of his alter ego Slim Shady. The album is satirical in style and Eminem has stated it is “made-up tales of trailer-park stuff.”
I am torn about this album. I wish the language was tamer. I do not enjoy vulgar lanuage in music, especially every other word. It just seems to be used for shock value. I really like the music and his voice is great at rap. I think it he cut a few harsh words out, then I would really like it. 5/10.
