I don't know if I agree, but I don't have any evidence to the the contrary, Dun. So that might be one of those harsh as fuck truths. Some say that it's true for all arts, that "It's better to burn out to fade away", but I can think of at least a few exceptions to that. But, none for hip hop really. That sucks.

it's not harsh at all i don't think. and i also wouldn't go so far as to say it applies to all arts. mainly just hip hop.

i don't wanna hear old nigs rapping about how their gats get swallowed up by their depends every time they

step off their rascal scooter

2001 by Dr dre was good, before he sacked it off. Not his best, sure, but it was still good.

dre would've been about 35 in 1999 when 2001 was dropped. that's not quite old man status. i mean Kanye is 35 right now but yeah he may have peaked at dark fantasy



also, i would argue that Dre might be wrestling with the notion that he might fvk up his legacy with detox sucking so hard hence overthinking it to the point where it may not even get released

"Every track on this album is a made up stories about him killing people."

'The Way I Am', 'Stan', and 'Marshall Mathers'. And even if this was JUST about killing people, at least the beats are consistently great, even for the songs I don't enjoy('Kim' particularly, it still is too uncomfortable for me) I still can credit and respect. I have no respect for 'Survival' and 'Won't Back Down' mostly because those 2 songs are blatant copies of past Eminem songs, specifically 'Echo'(which I already stated previously was terrible) and 'Won't Back Down'(Em already made 'Hallie's Song' he should've given it a break). At most MMLP2 is a 4, but not superior to this.

even Em himself knows that's false. might wanna stay retired lambchop as ur clearly senile at
this
point


once again nothing but bitter shit cuz you have no response to this album being nothing but make-
believe violent stories. he has actually said in interviews that he is lyrically on another level
than he was at the height of his popularity so you obviously don't even know what you are talking
about. The
retire/senile insult was semi-witty though, I didn't think you had it in you!

If the MMLP2 were better than this, it wouldn't be called the MMLP2. It would be called
something else. The only reason he decided it was the sequel to this is because he knows this is,
and always
will be his best album. By making his new album the "sequel" to this, he knew he would get everybody
hyped and insisting that it was a return to form. Then some people fell for it. And I've got hip hop
in my chart, so bitch don't even trip.


All this suggests is him knowing he isn't as popular as he once was. It was a publicity stunt
because he is irrelevant in mainstream today and MMLP is probably the most
relevant mainstream rap album there is. Publicity has nothing to do with the overall quality after
people hear
about it and listen. 10% hip hop. im not impressed. Let me repeat myself again. The key to liking
the new album more than this is preferring hip hop over any other genre of music, thats cuz you need
to appreciate lyrics more than beats/flow/sound.

Stan
The Way I Am
Marshall Mathers
The Real Slim Shady
Under the Influence
Bitch Please II (Except for his last line that he threw in)
etc


Stan (which is Eminem's voice, if you didn't know) kills himself AND his pregnant girlfriend.
The Way I am (among other lines) "I'm lifting you 10 feet ... in the air
I don't care who was there and who saw me destroy you"
Marshall Mathers "You might see me walking a dead rottweiler dog
With its head chopped off in the park with a spiked collar
Hollering at him cause the son of a bitch won't quit barking
Or leaning out a window with a cocked shotgun"
Under the Influence "I'm like a fuckin' wasp in the hospital lost
Stingin' the fuck outta everything I come across in the halls
I light a candle and place it up on the mantle
Grab a knife at the blade and stab you with the fucking handle
So when you find yourself wrapped up in the blinds, hurting
(Bitch it's too late)
Cause once you're hung from the drapes, it's curtains"

In conclusion, you don't even know the lyrics to this album that is over a decade old, you sure as
hell don't know the lyrics to his new one.

@sharktooth I only said it was superior to this lyrically, specifically the topics it deals with are
deeper, more interesting and diverse. And his wordplays are lightyears ahead of anything in this
album.

The beats on this though ARE way better, and yeah MMLP2 has a couple unoriginal songs. Thanks for
actually responding to me like a human, though, its nice to talk to someone who doesn't have a stick
wedged up their ass.

you just finished your own debate right there. nobody's bitter

how are you going to argue that MMLP2 is > when beats are like 80% of what makes up hiphop these days

because like I said, I think the forte of hip hop is actually the lyrics, I think there is
historical
evidence to support this (IE hip hop starting from two-turn tables and being notable mainly for the
emcees raps), and my only point I have ever made is that MMLP2 > MMLP IF you like hip hop to all
other
genres (and by extension, my assumption is you then appreciate lyrics more than beats).

Yeah rap is basically all about beats these days, but to me that is boring and unimpressive, lyrics
are what fascinate me, and I am not alone (just am on this site).

Keep in mind I am not the one talking authoritatively, I just said this album is really good IMO and
got all these people saying "ur dumb cuz i sed so".
