and that's what makes it amazing for where Em was at when he was 24 or whatever



Em was at his prime from 96 to about 02 or so     not that he's still not capable of a dope verse but his work proves that he's been past his peak about a dozen years.

You could make that case for Em's later stuff but Infinite was straight hip hop. What makes it "borderline suicide music"?

not so much the content cause his content is irrelevant to me but the production is gloomy and boring to me.

i can see why the content of "Maxine" and "Jealousy Woes" are irrelevant to you since you are a gay man with no interest in females but to say the music with "borderline suicide" and have absolutely nothing to back it up afterwards besides a shallow "gloomy and boring" description shows how much of a joke your musical input is.  what songs were gloomy and boring?  do you not appreciate his flow or lyrics? 

offer a real input instead of telling us how your boyfriend TI has a big penis or whatever it was you said

not my cup of tea. I liked his first 3 major releases and that's where it stops for me but, as far as that infinite shit goes shit is chops.

Em was at his prime from 96 to about 02 or so     not that he's still not capable of a dope verse but his work proves that he's been past his peak about a dozen years.

How did you come up with this conclusion? You think he's like an athlete where it's easy to tell when a guy is past his best, based on age and performance while competing? You might have liked his earlier shit much more than you do now but to say he was the best then and not now, really isn't accurate. I don't even know how you can prove that because the dude continues to spit FIRE. I believe he is better now than he was back then. He might have had CLASSIC albums back then but in terms of just MC SKILLS, he's still ridiculous. He's probably better now with much more experience, knowledge and practice.

no offense but if you think Em is writing better music now than he was in the late 90's then you must have a real bad taste in metaphors

Exactly. Go through your list of favorite rappers, guarantee the majority of them were better towards the beginning of their career than they are now.

Maybe Em is too complex for you now.

Em is the exception though. He never lost "hunger". Not sure how much you guys follow him but the dude is as dedicated as the first day. Like I said, people need to make the distinction between CLASSIC albums and where he stands as an MC in terms of SKILL. An opinion is not a FACT. You guy are giving me a bunch of opinions. That's fine but don't pretend these are facts unless you got a way to prove this. Em is still on top of his game. You don't need to here it from me. Just watch what other rappers have to say about him. From Slaughterhouse to whoever. TOP MC's. Not many can fuck with him. All he fucking does is RAP. He's in a fucking cave and writes rhymes 24/7. How the fuck is he past his prime lol? This fool doesn't play basketball. He RAPS>

Dawg seriously?? You want me to go back to Slim Shady LP and MMLP and find some shit similar to that?? It's not hard to find Em spit shit like that when he's done it all his life lol. The dude is a clown. You're picking one fucking line that you don't like as if that was the only option ha.

"youll never get it bru" That's another way of saying "I tap out"

U might don't got it? Yeah I don't get it lol.

Here's a clever line from Slm Shady LP

"Hi Kids do you like Violence?, Wanna see me stick NIne Inch Nails through each of my eye lids? Wanna copy me and do exactly what I did?

Let me get up and give this CLEVER shit a standing ovation haha.

Honestly I didn't expect this response from you NIKCC.
