i really like the "so long, bitch you did me so wrong part", but as a whole, it was a little to violent and angry for me

Classic? Naah... No way. It's an interesting track 'cause of the delivery is different from anything else. But when it comes down to the raps - the lyrics, the flow, the rhymes - Em has so many tracks other than this that really could be considered classic. "Kim" just isn't that. The "screaming psycho fight" -handle works great for setting the mood to the track, and it works great with the story, but otherwise there isn't much to the track IMO.

Every white boy I know swears this song is the shit and is classic. Almost every nigga I know though, thinks this song is 'an unattractive look'. :-\

I don't know, shit is too intense.

when i first hear it i was like ohhh this dude went too far now lol this is psycotic lol

I think a lot have to do with what kind of music seeped into their brains while they were small. Kim has this Grunge element to it that just about every white kid would have heard non stop when they were little kids and they associate that with Kim. I think thy like the idea of the song more than the song. I never thought much of Eminm as a lyricist or storyteller. He's more like Tarantino while I prefer more of the Clint Eastwood style of story telling. More gritty, more real. Just my taste though.

Anyway, most black kids who were teens when Kim came out weren't listening to punk influenced music as kids. They were jumping up and down for MJ's Black or White while white kids were rocking their heads to Smeels Like Teen Spirit or Jeremy.


Personally I think the concept is silly, the delivery is over the top, and the lyrics canbe replaced with the Mushrooms song and vice versa. There is nothing really deep about it.

its not supposed to be deep, its an expression of anger, a vent, a muthafucking spaz-attack in lyrical form.
Its like therapy, getting shit off your chest, instead of keeping it inside.....


...music is reflection of self, we just explain it, and then we get our checks in the mail. It's fucked up ain't it?/ How we can come from practically nothing to being able to have any fuckin' thing that we wanted/That's why we sing for these kids, who don't have a thing except for a dream, in a fuckin' rap magazine/who post pin-up pictures on they walls all day long, idolize they favorite rappers and know all they songs/Or for anyone who's ever been through shit in their lives, till they sit and they cry at night wishin' they'd die/Till they throw on a rap record and they sit, and they vibe. We're nothin' to you but we're the fuckin' shit in they eyes/that's why we seize the moment try to freeze it and own it, squeeze it and hold it, cuz we consider these minutes golden/and maybe they'll admit it when we're gone. Just let our spirits live on, through our lyrics that you hear in our songs and we can...

It's a stupid murder story that sounds more like whining than it does rage. His lyrics are too literal and pretentious when serious for me to think all that much of them. I think his ability to rap, flow and rhyme is phenominal. I just don't think much or his words or plots.

But it wasn't even a story. It was an actual person he was writing about. At the end of the day, the girl's a fuckin' person, and he knew his suburban fans was gonna love that shit. Now you took it another level.

Of course it's a story. It's the prequel to the story from the SSLP about dumping the body.

hey im white...cheers for tellin me i think this is a classic...is there any other songs i deem CLASSIC I DONT KNOW ABOUT??

as for the song never really liked it...then again im a reasonably happy and secure person....ruined a very good album for me...specially as it was sandwhiched between two of my favourite tracks...thought it wasa bit OTT...now bonnie & clyde was a dope song as he still managed to inject some of his trademark humour...

A lot of pople say that about all types of genres. It's music. Just not very easy to listen to. I'm sure you don't think a lot of Bad Brains or Rollins Band is easy to listen to but it's still music.

lmao@quiet truths comments at the beginning....funny how there is some truth to that....but be careful, steriotypes leads to racism....infact they intertwine......but thats taking it too far and thats on TOT secction shit...

in regards to this post....

i think when i was younger i probably bumped this a few times, i thought the hook was aight back then but i never considered the song anywhere near classic...oh im black by the way,aha....

but for real, the joint is wayyy ott for me....i prefer eminems flow when his chilled but kinda pissed.....like the joints on mmlp where his complaining about shit on dre westcoast influenced beats....such as "who knew" joint or something like that....you know the "i never knew i would get this rich"...joint...and if his gonna be pissed and use his albums as anger management i prefer shit like "the way i am" or "solider".....this is def not music to me....but like shallow said it is music....everything we hear on the radio which is a song is music....

its like an academic piece of work....damn a cat could have a 10000 word essay full of shit and another could have a 1000 word essay which is amazing....they both academic work...ones just garbage, the other is great....

anyways im not a fan of this joint....nuttin personal, i think hiphop needs eminem but not an encore or a recylced eminem....but like this shit was made when eminem was at his peak so like even though i aint a fan of this, i cannot hate
