"He ain't given them s**t, he says he'll pinch a penny so hard
He'll leave a bruise on the bronze so dark you can see the mark
With the scars, till Abraham Lincoln is screaming out AHH"

Those bars was mad funny and descriptive about how he would tryi to save money if he became famous...classic line
When i hear some of the stuff he says i be like how does he think of this stuff. its like he takes simple quotes flips and makes it complex and make since at the same time

there were still a lot of GREAT punchlines on the album. u can't hit on all of them. why don't u start posting all the simple ones to prove u ain't just placin random hate like 384828 other threads? only gonna cover 2 tracks and i got a bunch of sick ones..

Go ahead, f**king hater push me
I told you, ain't no f**king way to shush me
Call me a f**got cause I hate a pus*y


flames


Man chill, nah I can't god damnit
Rappers are land fill, drop the anvil
These are shoes that you can't fill
s**t the day that happens the world'll stop spinning
And Michael J. Fox'll come to a stand still


flames


They call me a freak because
I like to spit on these pussies before I eat 'em
(obviously the double meaning, s3xual/lyrical)

flames


Set fire to the mic and ignite the crowd
You can see the sparks from hot metal
Cold-hearted, from the day I Bogarted,
the game I so started, to rock fellow
When I'm not even in my harshest,
You can still get roasted because Marsh is not mellow
:wow: :wow:

retarded flames...one of the craziest lines i've heard in time.



...simple punchlines?? ...might want to relisten a few times. again, this is just 2 tracks...
I honest to god cannot tell if you're being sarcastic or not. I hope so. I really hope so.

I shouldn't have to rhyme these words into rhythm for you to know it's a wrap/rap.


You said you were king you lied through teeth so for that
f**k your fillings/feelings instead of getting crowned you getting capped


Too many quotables to list
Those two were good, but he still made me cringe multiple times on this album. Usually me cringing during rap songs is reserved for Kanye and a handful of down south rappers (e.g. Gucci Mane).

eminem is so dope wit the wordplay & multis that when you try to read his lyrics they don't even make any f**king sense if you ain't heard the song..cuz I'm readin some of the lyrics & I can't figure how the f**k he spit em.. especially over a beat..dude is sick

I hope this album don't let me down tho..I'm one of the few who hasn't heard it yet lol

It confuses me why someone like Drake get's a pass for his rhyme 'skills' and yet Eminem's lyrics are picked at and over analysed.

Why is it a problem that Eminem can make a track that shows more lyricism than most rappers who probably couldn't pull it off on their entire album?!

Em's comes ridiculously hard with the punchlines, the flows and the metaphors on this album. Yeah, there are some that aren't as good as others, but every verse is so packed with them that you couldn't possibly expect them to hit equally hard.

Props to the guys who have posted the lyrics from Recovery as evidence. Nobody arguing that his previous is work is SO much better have posted anything for comparison - this just as good as old eminem but, i would say, more refined and with better flows. If Em spit a generic Drake verse (who, more than anyone has simple punchlines - though I still like his s**t) people would nail him to the cross.

Plus, it ain't all punchlines - there is a lot of introspective deeep stuff here too. Em would have to spit the word of god in god's own voice to please some people..

Anyone realize there is like an abundance of simple type kindergarten metaphors/similes in Recovery? I came to accept this from people like wayne , drake, etc.. but for some reason i was let down hearing it from em. for someone held as such a great lyricist to succumb to such amateur techniques is kinda weird..

i am a fan, i enjoyed the album.. just venting
You also gotta realize that now a days rappers that spits crazy meta4s/similies are not selling...


Actually been like that for a LONG time

I love how he says ems punchlines are easy to understand the first time you hear them. Implying good ones take awhile to understand. Yet then says punchline rap has no replay value. So explain how you every understand "good punchlines" if u never replay it

You're the worst form of 'stan', you're the kind who used to be obsessed with Eminem, he hurt you're feelings with Encore and now you can't forgive him no matter what he does. You're just a run of the mill b**ch.

I'm waitin' on 10 years time when you dissin' Drake.

Stop in every post, we all know you're crying in reality.

lol at ppl surprised Ems music and lyrics, punchlines has changed... u really expect him to still be the same like a decade later? most rappers suck after a few years... Em still has it, relapse was avg, encore avg, but this is as close as we will get to MMLP or even TES. rappers change.

as for how goos he is, i still think hes better than most with witty punchlines and lyrics...

i never really considered a eminem a punchlinest...i considered him more lyrical as in the sense of wordplay and multi syllables.

That line about Michael J Fox had me rewind in shock. Besides that, it's alright lyrically in terms of Em's standards.

if you think eminem is still good at the punchlines, then god help you
Damn brah, Em must of d*cked your girl down or something? Every since the album dropped all you've been doing in coming in to EM threads (an artist that sucks to you) and hating.

Grow the f**k up, you sound like a little school girl crying in every thread b**ch.
