This is what every Em fan wanted - The return of Slim Shady
Clearly not considering that so many people are b***hing it's not another MMLP. Point is he wouldn't have been able to please everyone and the same s**t would be happening no matter what he did.

After a 5 year hiatus and everyone anticipating your return and the best you come up with is Relapse? An album about k!lling people and various homos3xual acts... You people are really satisfied with that? Any real Eminem fan should be pissed. You guys have been waiting years for this s**t. Making an album for the fun of making one shouldn't and doesn't cut it.
you do know thats how he started out right?? Talking about crazy s**t and r*pe and murder and drugs......The Way I am and Mockinbird s**t came later......I think he should have left Beautiful off Relapse......its a good song but it doesnt fit with the rest of the album.....biggest selling album of the year :applause::applause:

Eminem doesnt sell more than Carter 3 in a week, now its "who cares if Em didnt sell more than Carter 3, Wayne caters to females" smh at you Stans
Not at all. But who the f**k cares about sales.

50 Cent's Curtis also sold more than Relapse in the 1st week. Would you say Curtis is better than Relapse? If so I think you need your head examined.

Facts are. Firstly Relapse is ridiculously well crafted and so much better than Carter III in every possible sense. If you really wanna tally up sales how about Eminem officially being the biggest rapper in history, FACT. And Wayne has been out as long.

Carter III is a pile of s**t. It may as well literally be an actual human piece of turd because that's what the quality of it equates too.

You also can't underestimate the fact that Wayne is a sell-out and at the time was on every mixtape in creation to get his name out there. So most people bought it just to see what all the fuss was about. Then true hip-hop fans wiped their a.ss with it n gave it to Auto the trash man on collection day.

You also cannot take for granted the state of the recession in early 2008 vs now. It's a huge huge difference. It also took Wayne six f**king albums to finally reach a mill in a week. The guy is a turd, a trend rapper, a guy of the times that'll be yesterday's news before ya know it.

Relapse is true quality.

All im saying is more people are obviously feeling wayne right now then they are feeling eminem and that can be proved by the difference in record sales. record sales are almost like votes. so if there was a poll asking which artist do you like better, eminem or wayne obviously wayne would have won the poll by 400,000 votes or sales. Therefore wayne is simply more popular and more liked by the general public.
That's not true and record sales don't prove that. First of all it was a year ago Carter III came out so the recession was nowhere near as bad as it is now or has just been.

Secondly, it shows more people bought it. He appealed to more of the public than Em cuz he's a sell-out. But I'd bet more real hip-hop fans are feeling Em than Wayne.

Took Wayne 6 albums to get truely noticed. Shows how s**t he is. What has Wayne ever done that comes even close to Em's best? f**k ALL that's what.

Em's worst stuff is 10 times better than Wayne's best stuff.

I don't think most of the general public do prefer Wayne though.

He sold more because he was 'the new kid on the block' at the time. Even though he had five albums before C3, it took him THAT long to finally get noticed properly.

Backstreet Boys sold more than 2Pac when he was alive but I wouldn't call them more talented.

If the general public preferred Wayne over Em then Em wouldn't have sold 80 Mil records.

And yes I know we've been in a recession since last year and yes longer than that. That's why I said it was nowhere near AS BAD as now.

Back in June 08 when C3 was released it was nowhere near as bad as now. It was at it's worst around Nov 08. We're just slowly coming out of it so consumer trust is rising, slowly.

Also, look at all the promotion and features Wayne did to achieve that.

Where as Em hasn't had an album out since 04, releases a few singles and does 600k straight away.

Who cares about sales anyway. Em is miles more talented.

I wasn't one of the people pre-sales saying "JUST WATCH RELAPSE BEAT C3" because personally I cannot see why the fans of the two artists keep going tit for tat, I don't get it, it's ridiculous and childish.

I was only concerned about the quality of the music. And minus Crack a Bottle the album is perfect so I'm happy.

So what, he's rapping about drugs, r*pe and serial k!lling.

He may of rapped about that in 99' but in 2000 he rapped about the media and critics, in 2002 / 03 he rapped about his personal life, psychology and mental state.

In 04' he did a little of both and a bit of silliness.

He's grown every album so why can't he just have fun with it again. "Mosh" for example is a prime song of growth. A new found maturity and a stomping political song. Same with stuff like "Square Dance".

That's his style. He covers more topics in one verse than most do in a whole album.

It's not what you say it's how you say it.

It's "hot" because the rhyme patterns are incredible and the delivery is fresh and nearly every track has a completely new set of flows.

Where as most rappers rap about guns and the streets and how gangsta they are... FOREVER. So your critisism is stupid.

The fact that all people wanna hear about is guns and cars is ridiculous. You hear that type of s**t from everyone else, it's good to hear something different for a while. That's where Eminem comes in.
