    Did anyone catch Eminem's Freestyle last night on the BET Awards? I have never been more proud to call myself a fan!

    I love Eminem. I don't agree with this particular message but the man is a rap and lyric master

    I don't think Trump is particularly racist. I think he's classist. And it happens to be the case that Black and Brown people are disproportionately "lower class."

    I am not a fan of rap music, but I do enjoy poetry. I have never really had an opinion about Eminem before, but I must say I agree with him on what he covered in this video.

    I use to like him, but since he got political I no longer have a use for him.

    I enjoy Eminem's music. I'm afraid however he was a bit careless with the "or gun reform for Nevada" around the 2:10 mark. That statement coming from someone who has made his almost 200 million dollars net worth from a culture that glorifies gun violence (himself included) is a bad look. It's very odd to talk about gun reformation when you yourself have been arrested and put on probation for gun charges.

    I am a huge Eminem Fan and Tupac. I used to love the looks I would get from people when I would roll up in my police car and you could hear them playing on my stereo! I love all rap music that has a message but here lately not so much. There is so much "I got 20 bitches on my dick, while I am sleeping on a bed of hundred dollar bills, located in my giant boat that I got to on my Jetplane" I can take. I mean sometimes its fun to listen to on your way to the club or if you're gonna have a night of just raunchy sex but I prefer songs that say something! I like Eminem not only cause some of his songs have a message but also because some of his songs are like watching a horror movie or a good way to vent frustrations. And then that flow! I mean I have always loved Pac but the fact is he doesn't hold a candle to Em's structure and flow. That dude can rhyme ANYTHING! For the guys that don't necessarily appreciate the message, you and I may not see eye to eye politically but I have mad respect that you can see past that and give a guy props for just raw talent! I wish there were more people in this world like that. My hats off to you guys!

    I will say I am a bit surprised by your response. I think it's hysterical that the white guy is saying another white guy is a racist while the brown guy disagrees! That has to be a first!

    Yeah. I disagree with a few things he said here. Still love him as a rapper though.

    Fair and good point, However, an imperfect messenger does not lessen the worth of a good message.

    Pac is, always has been, and probably always will be my favorite rapper but I'll be the first to admit that he's not a lyrical juggernaut flow-wise. He's pretty mediocre actually, as far as flow is concerned. The reason why he's my favorite is because of what he had to say not the way he said it. I liked the passion, the fire in his words, the emotion in his voice, and his honesty. Eminem possesses those qualities as well but he's a beast lurically to boot.

    Anyway, though Pac is still my fave and I still enjoy rap music thoroughly, I find myself disagreeing with a lot of things said in the music now. I'm not 15 years old anymore. My worldview is vastly different than it was back in those days.

    I agree to extent, however, context matters because nothing exist in a vacuum.

    I agree! I have most everything Pac did alive and after death! He did have a lot to say and he said it well! :grouphug:
