Eminem – The Marshall Mathers LP 2 – Late Review


Slim Shady aka Eminem aka Marshall Mathers aka Rap God is back and with the biggest bang ever. The album itself has been named as a sequel to his previous album which went diamond at the time of its release “Marshall Mathers LP”. This is a follow-up to Eminem’s album recovery, released in 2010. Eminem has released a combined effort with Royce da 5’9″ in the 2011 album “Hell – The Sequel”. In ‘Marshall Mathers LP 2″, the blonde haired King of mischief, Slim Shady has come back after a long time, since the album “Relapse” and Eminem seems to be stuffed up with so much of thoughts that he has broken all records of spitting out words in a rhyme, or rather to put it in his own words “Lyrics comin’ at you at Super Sonic Speed” .Time to kick off with the latest album review.

1) Bad Guy, which is a continuation or rather a sequel to the song Stan from the Part 1 album. the song is an epic example of story telling, where Matthew Mitchell is on a vengeful mission to avenge his brother’s death, by killing Eminem. The lyrics and flow are such that you can almost see the scene in front of your eyes “Surprised to see me? Cat got your tongue?… Gag, chloroform rag, gag almost hacked up a lung… Like you picked an axe up and swung… Stick to the core plan, drag to the back of a trunk… By one of your fans, irony spectacular, huh?”.

2) Parking Lot (Skit), the only skit in the entire album, which again is a continuation of the skit from the song Criminal from Part 1 of the album, going by which Eminem shoots himself in the end finding himself cornered by the cops.

3) Rhyme or Reason, is a song with Eminem dissing his dad. The song samples the song by ‘The Zombies’ “Time of Season,”. The song describes about the issues that Eminem had to go through in his life, having to lead a fatherless life. The song has an awesome mix between the “Time of the Season” song and Eminem’s rap.

(Whats your name?) Shady… (Who’s your daddy?) I don’t give a fuck, but I wonder… (Is he rich like me?) Doubt it, ha… (Has he taken, any time, to show you what you need to live?)

4) So Much Better, is about how his love ditched him for other artists in the industry and how he would be so much better if she drops dead.

5) Survival. In this song he talks about how tough the rap industry has become and only the ones who are the fittest would survive in the end. He talks about the situations in the industry being really tough and it’s not easy to survive, but also claims that even if the odds are against Em and even if he is not prepare, he would always be able to overcome the scene, come what ever may, because he knows he is says “I am an adapter and I can adjust”.

The song was released as the first single from the album and was used as a track for Medal of Honor game.

6) Legacy. The song is about Em’s legacy and how he grew up to be the legend he is today and how he was when he was growing up, all the troubles he to go through and how he realized his skills of rhyme writing could help him overcome many of his troubles.

“I used to be the type of kid that would always think the sky is falling… Now I think the fact that I’m differently wired’s awesome… ‘Cause if I wasn’t I wouldn’t be able to work Words like this and connect lines like crosswords”

7) Asshole. The song where EM proudly calls himself an asshole and claims to have come into the world when it was in need of a villain. He says that sometimes he is so much into playing his part as the villain in the world that he forgets his role as a father that he plays in his real life to two of his daughters.

8) Bezerk is the song with Slim Shady taking the rap game back to old school style of rap with boom box and old school lyrics pattern, with a good enough cut of rock, sampling  Billy Squier’s “The Stroke” and referring and mocking cultures from various walks and time. The song was released as the 2nd single from the album and the first video single.

9) Rap God. “I’m beginning to feel like Rap God Rap God” and truly does Eminem prove the line he says in the song and clears why he is indeed the Rap God. In 6 minutes Shady spills his thoughts about everything in the Rap industry, giving reference to all the Rap Legends and artists who have come and gone and gives them the credit saying that

“Me? I’m a product of Rakim… Lakim Shabazz, 2Pac, N-W-A., Cube, hey, Doc, Ren… Yella, Eazy, thank you, they got Slim”

The song is the 3rd single from the album.

10) Brainless talks about how dark and crazy is Eminem up in his head and how dangerous things can get if he goes Brainless. Well he has had similar songs back in the days, still, though it sounds rude, it feels great to have Eminem talk about his screwed up head every time.

11)  Stronger Than I Was is a reminiscent of Em’s ‘Hailie’s Song’ from “The Eminem Show” album somehow where he claims he can’t sing, but still sings and then begins rapping. Similarly, in Stronger Than I Was, Eminem sings most part of the song and then continues the song by doing what he does best… rapping. The song is about troubles between him and his partner and how he has become stronger than he was, when he was with his sweetheart before their breakup.

12) Monster is the song where the hit duo that made a single from Em’s last album “Recovery” one of the biggest hits that Em has had “Love the way you Lie”, but this time claims making friends with the Monster that;s under his bed. The song has been released as the 4th single from the album and revisits some of Em’s previous hit videos like “My Name Is”, “Lose Yourself and “The Way I Am”.

13) So Far… is a fun song, with Eminem making fun of everything other than celebs and talking about his devotion to his city which made him, drawing a sudden twist in the beats going back to ‘The Real Slim Shady” to pick the lyrics “And every single person is a Slim Shady lurking… He could be working at Burger King, spitting on your onion rings” to bring in  “Went to Burger King, they spit on my onion rings… I think my karma is catching up with me”.

14) Love Game feat. Kendrick Lamar where Eminem gives one of the funniest track ever, sampling Wayne Fontana & the Mindbenders’ 1965 “Game of Love,” and this time Kendrick Lamar joining Em as his partner in crime who is just at the same level of spitting out funny lyrics.

15) Headlights feat. fun.’s Nate Ruess. Now this song is something that nobody would’ve expected, but maybe some would’ve hoped about, where Em talks about someone, who might have been mentioned probably once or twice in an album of his, not much… his mother. In all of his previous album, he has called his mother all of the abusive nouns under the sun. But to everyone’s surprise, in this song, Em apologizes to his mom and says sorry for “Cleanin’ out his Closet”.

16) Evil Twin  is a song with heavy beats and music to support, where Eminem talks about him finding it hard to find the difference between him and his evil twin which off course is Slim Shady what are the effects of the lines starting to blur.

Now to rate the album in all, I can’t even dare to give anything less than 4.5 stars out of 5. Not giving all 5 because even though the album does live up to the name “The Marshall Mathers LP 2”, I feel that Em could’ve brought up some other topics into his rap game, since there are buckets or rather pools of issues that I can’t wait to hear Eminem put out his takes on in, his own way.

Eminem’s Novel – The Way I am


The rapper legend’s new novel named “The Way I Am” is breaking records!

Well all the fans know how Shady is always spitting out his anger on all the things that he has to go through and on all those things, which he has already experienced in his life! He has done the same thing in “The Way I Am”. He tells about his two times ex-wife, Kim Mathers and about his close friend D12 rapper, Proof, who got murdered.

He says that, it was actually supposed to be a scrap book of his fans, but when it all completed, it turned into a novel sot of “thing”. He has re-invented a style of writing novels i.e. in a comic format. Yup! That means, almost half of the novel is in novel format and the rest is normal. He has added a few pictures, taken by himself and added dialogs to give it a whole new effect. He has also added two dozen examples of hand written lyrics, to show his fans, the way he prepares his songs for example “Stan”, “My Name Is”

“Rap is one big Fantasy Island, It’s the place I always retreat to when things get too hectic in real time.”

He has also mentioned about how bad he felt after the death of his closest bussy Proof. “After he passed, it was a year before I could really do anything normally again. It was tough for me to even get out of bed, and I had days when I couldn’t walk, let alone write a rhyme. When I tried to put my thoughts together — well, I wasn’t making sense when I spoke, so everyone was trying to keep me off TV and away from the press.”

But even after mentioning almost everything in his life, guess one thing or person he doesn’t mention! Yup! You guessed it! His mother! Well, his mother has also got a novel “My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem”.

If you want to know more about it, then just go and buy it!

50 Cent On Eminem’s Next



According to sources, on asking 50 Cent that whether Eminem is actually doing something for his next album or is it just a rumor, he confirms that all of the news is true. This is what he has to say on asking him about Eminem’s next album…

“He’s got a new album coming. He’s not gonna tell people that, but he’s making new music. I’ve heard a few songs, and it’s hot. He won’t tell nobody he’s working on a new album, but I’ll tell you : he’s working on new music. And once he locks into it, like, ‘This is my favorite shit,’ it’s gonna come out.” Is it angry Em ? Wacky Em ? “Both,” said 50 Cent. “The whole range. You know, Michael Jordan was supposed to play basketball. Floyd Mayweather was meant to box. And Eminem was meant to rap.” as given in “www.hiphopgalaxy.com”.

The name of Eminem’s next album is supposedly going to be “King Mathers”.

Lets see what King Mathers does when he returns.
