Who do you think is better Eminem or pop music?

    Eminem's music is far far better than anything the pop music industry churns out now. It's individual and pop music is, well, too much of the same thing really.

    I love Eminem, and I like pop too, so does it really matter which catagory he is in. By the way, where was the Eminem weekend on MTV, there must have been all of 4 hours of Eminem the whole weekend, what a let down!

    has anyone heard 'stan' by eminem? pretty cool.. he does some nasty shit taking the piss out of comercial music... listen to the non comercial tracks and you`ll see!! goto some mp3 sites and get the decent tracks!

    I would call Eminem mainstream rather than pop, since his genre is actually hip-hop. Also, only the single that he brings out are really made to appeal to a wider audience. The rest of his CD (both Slim Shady LP and Marshall Mathers LP) are very much hip-hop. Ppl like him cos he is different, and because he is different he brings attention to himself, thus making his own publicity. And we all know what publicity does for an artist.

    Eminem makes rum music but lets face it, he tries to be hard with all his naughty words and just sounds obnoxious.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    just in case you don't know Marshall Mathers a.k.a. Eminem he is hard. He chased ICP out of a bar once and beat up a producer and once a gangster threatened him in the street and he smashed his face in. Em is not a faker and he had a bad upbringing and is even on gun charges when he beat up a friend who gave his wife a peck on the cheek.

    Eminem is good... at least whe his stuff is produced by Dre it is... If ya notice the best songs on the Marhall Mathers CD r produced by Dre n most of the others suck.
    As for the chasing ICP bit.... that never happened he just said it did n dissed ICP hard...
    Eminem is a lot more pop... ICP though same style is more underground n they r better... Wait till the new ICP album comes out where they're writing an entire tune dissing eminem which is gonna kick ass.
    Eminems starting to diss the wrong ppl cos ICP r friends with Dre n Snoop as well...
    Think he pushed that 1 to far.

    As for pop music... it's all shit talentless wonders.... can't stand the industry just made to appeal to 14 yr old girls... n e 1 else who likes it needs to get there heads read

    Well, he did beat up their producer. Name one song on ems new LP that sucks. I love then all, espec. the way i am, Kim, Stan etc. We are all entitled to our own opinion. You might like Dr. Dre more but others like all his songs. I know ICP did the slim anus which he did a counter attack on, a very good counter actually. Britney and cristina are slags and I think ICP are ponces(no offence daze) that wear makeup and dont benefit from a bad upbringing so I'll go with the worlds most violent superstar on this one.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    kim is cool as well (nasty)... he is real, it's definitely isnt an act.. he could have been in NWA.. if dr.dre had anything to do with him in those days.. real life stuff...
    em's mum sued (tried, i`m not sure) him cause off the thing in his chart track that said his 'mum does more dope than he does'..
    that's what heard anyway...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Slim in NWA, Niggaz With Attitude?? hmmm wouldn't quite fit in considering he is white, which is why he isn't in the reformed NWA. ICP poofs??? hmmm the criminal records stretch back further than Slim n Dre put together, Slims record is concealed firearm n a couple of assaults... Most of ICP have got attempted murder one memeber of the bands has had like $7000000 worth of compensation fines(most outta court settlement), they've all been in prison at one point, I wouldn't be choosing Slim over Violent J in a fight put it that way.

    The average rapper wouldn't be able to grace the pages of Rap Pages, VIBE, Rolling Stone, Spin, The Source, URB and Stress and go on a national tour months before their major-label debut album is released. Then again, Eminem isn't an average rapper. He's phenomenal.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    oh, as for ICP and Dre being friends i just heard ICPs new diss song for slim, it slags of dre just as much.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    heres a quote from an interview.

    "There's a difference between realness and an act, and they're an act, and they know they're an act, and they even say they're an act, they even say they're cornballs, they admit it."---Eminem On ICP

    I think you should go to http://www.eminem2000.com and see for yourself.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yeah ICP n Dre fell out over the Eminem thing, ICP r an act but then so's Eminem, ICP do it on there own though they don't have Dre backing them up... Don't get me wrong I like eminem but dissing ICP goes a bit too far as there the ones who started that style abusive rapping, eminem just commercialised it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yeah, I did a little research on ICP. Dark carnival sounds a bit....dark. The site tells you everthing about them apart from which ones Violent J and which ones Shaggy 2 Dope.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Hey, just check out my user name! I love Em better then any pop music! I have the Slim Shady & Marshall mathers LP, they're both wicked. My fave songs are Kim, Stan, The Way I Am, Brain Damage, Rock Bottom & Still Don't Give A Fuck. Brilliant.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    eminems_gal - good for you....
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Slim shady does rum music, fair play 2 him, but why is he always so angry? I know I wouldn't be if I earned that much.

    ARE YOU FEELING LIKE YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN PLANNED OUT FOR YOU?
    ARE YOU FEELING LIKE A SOCIAL TOOL WITHOUT A USE?
    SCREAM AT ME UNTIL MY EARS BLEED, I'M TAKING HEED JUST FOR YOU.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I can't stand either. I don't like rap and i don't like pop music. The best music is, and always has been rock. I like Classic rock at that. Bands like Collective soul, AC/DC, Matthew Good Band, Creed, Aerosmith, ZZ-Top, etc. If you people wanna know exactly what kind of music i'm talking about and you need to listen to good music, go to http://www.cjay92.com It's a radio station in my city that i listen to all the time. They almost always have good music playing. And to add to it, the morning ppl are hilarious.

    My two favourite artists are Eminem and N Sync. Now how different can you get?! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt; Eminem is the best though, his songs are great, my favourites off his album are The way I am, Stan, Drugs Ballad, well all of them really ! LoL

    I've been looking on loads of sites about him and finding out everything I can about him, I think the reason he's so angry is because of his upbringing? I saw this documentary on MTV and he moved around a lot, his Mum was supposed to be a drug addict and he used to get bullied a lot at school. Actually he was in a coma once because he got beat up so badly at school! SO I guess now he has the opportunity to get angry at the world for all the stuff that happened to him when he was growing up he is doing! Thats just my opinion. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Eminem lucked into a scene that was getting stagnant from over use of the 'gangsta' tag.
    At the end of the day, that kind of rap will mutate into another style and then where will he be? old skool is better - with KRS-1, and co doing hip hop better. As for OCP, the suck big time. I saw them in holland a few years ago, and they forgot half of thier set, and spen the other half yelling at the crown for booing them. they are not porfessionals - the whole novelty act has been done better in the past. the are as bad a slipknot - meaning the are all style and no substance. They both hide behind mask and make up to hide the fact that they cant perform for toffees. If you want good rock-rap crossovers, look towards Rage against the machine, Public enemy (who wrote the rulebook with Anthrax) and Suicidal Tendancies.
    There is better music out there than them - just look a bit further than what MTV play.

    Heres the deal about Em and ICP. ICP have now admitted that Eminme and D-12 (dirty dozen) used to bully them in their gang days but its also true that eminem hates Brittney and christina because they both rejected him. This was revealed by his former bodyguard. he was also supposed to have cried about slim anus but no-one really knows. I prefer eminem but I do like ICP's music, some of it is really good. Their ideas are a little retarded but I think ICP are harder then eminem.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    And ICP also are really nice to their fans. If you walk up to them and ask for a photo and suck up to them then they will kick your arse but if you go and act cool and just chat nicely and treat them normal then they will hang with you all day. they are more down with their fans.
