Guess Who's Back
OMG - It's Eminem.
After wondering "where the hell is my favorite rapper of all time" for FAAAAAR too long, it's the edge of 2008 - Kanye is making the most heartfelt (and unfortunately the most misunderstood) album of 2008, but the "WilD-as-F*CK" award will ALWAYS go to Em.
Whether on his most serious of the serious (ie: "Mockingbird") or silly of the silly, (see above video) Em is always going to be the lasting impression of what it is to take perfection and creativity outside of the limits. Dealing with the struggles of being in a game that is becoming less and less of what he got in the game for, this album should be a breath of fresh air in an otherwise smoggy hip-hop year. I hope it's called "King Mathers". That'd be ill.
"Im Having A Relapse" is the first single off the new album, and it's fuckin' retarded. Em is DEFINTELY back on his shit - no matter how many pounds he mighta had, he still sounds like the skinny, psycho Slim Shady we all once adored.
So laugh, and get ready for a good end to a bad year. We gettin' Em, Jay, Kanye & Obama - in my opinion, things can't look any better. Shit - if McCain was in office, this might be all I could look forward to.
