We may ask : what makes Eminem appear as such a phenomenon in rap music ? What are the main reasons of his success in the music industry ?
If you ask me, Id say : Eminem himself.
His personality, his high level of verbal skills, his attitude (he never does anything just to please you), his originality, his great understanding of the youth (the mishandled youth in particular), his criticism against the American governments policy.
Some people may argue that his success is due to his skin color which is only partially true. Eminem owes his first success to a black man : Dr Dre. Eminem is also surrounded by the right people who know how to intelligently market his products like his friend and producer Dr Dre, his manager Paul Rosenberg.
But he owes his success much more to his talent and to his hard work.
The fact that hes a white M.C certainly contributes to attract a larger audience. I was myself surprised to see a white M.C rapping ( so well) when I first discovered him in his « Stan » video. That increased my curiosity and made me want to know more details about his music and his biography. But what really impressed me in the end were his verbal plays. Not even his worst enemies could deny Eminem is a talented wordsmith and those who deny his talent usually do it out of jealousy.
From the beginning of his career, Marshall has been very clever in attracting the publics attention. He has this great ability to captivate people and the public exposure of his life as a show make of him the most talked about rapper.
Marshall has never been afraid of speaking his mind and the fact that he has the courage of his opinions made him win a lot of hearts, but it also increased his enemies’ list for a large part. The exposure Eminem gives of his life is also a big reality show and we all know the world is in need of truth and reality. Since i was a child, I grew up despising artists and people of the show business, because most of them looked so fake and so superficial. When I first discovered Eminem, I was amazed : here is a man from Detroit, who is not ashamed of his past, of being « white trash ». He calls things by their names and shows pictures of himself carrying a big garbage bag on his back. Here is a man, who has the courage to say that poverty does not only exist among Blacks in America. He points out the existence of the « white trash ». Here is a man who is not ashamed of coming from the white poor classes. Here is a man who also has the courage to defy the Bush administration !
Eminems great personality alone explains his success for a large part. Eminem is real, he never fakes himself, he doesnt « give a fuck » about what you think, he doesnt « give a fuck about a Grammy ». Eminem is not conventional, he hates ceremonies. Even some fans felt offended because he didnt attend to a Grammy or an Award ceremony this year in May 2003, because they knew he preferred spending some time with Hailie than going to the ceremony. Offended fans, how can you be so selfish and say Eminem was disrespecting you ? Do you realize that he barely spends time with his daughter ? Its rather a good sign that he privileges Hailie to a ceremony.
But you must see Eminem on stage and he will convince you totally : no TV live retransmission of his concerts will make you feel the same. Eminem on stage is amazing : he is such a good entertainer. The athmosphere of his concert is divine, you can feel like an extraordinary alchemy between Marshall and his audience. At Paris Bercy, he performed for an hour and a half, and I was captivated from the beginning to the end. And I am not the only fan who felt like this. We were around 17 000 persons to feel like this. All the artists performing at Paris Bercy were great, but when Eminem came in, he was acclaimed like nobody else and the athmosphere was electrifying, we didnt want the show to end, we could have spent the whole night listening to him.
What is Eminems receipt of his success ? The answer is clear : the man himself !

Eminem is a great person and we should all give him some credit. Through his ryhmes he has taught me alot. i’ve learned alot of things during the past 3 years that I’ve listened to him. I have gotten past middle school cuz of his songs. I have also grown up with alot of people who are the poorer people in school. Right now my best friend is in a group home cuz she slit her wrist. I had also been in the hospital for this same reason. And one of my best friend Andrew is being made fun of cuz he is gay. I love him alot and hate to see him go through this. But I know that I can support him with what I have learned from Eminem. Andrew will always be my baby boy and I will always be his Baby girl. Thank you Eminem.
lets get serious, you people actually look up to Eminem? haha. America has become really bad with all of this celebrity worship. Get REAL LIVES! Besides, the beastie boys are way better.

FUCK EMINEM WITH MY GRANDMA!
Eminem is the best (white)rapper in history I say he get’s near to 2pac
if you guys think he is the greatest then you kids have not listened to tupac shakur just the greatest rapper of anyones generation by the time pac was 25 he was a better rapper then feminem is now at the age of 33 and it took 15 years for feminem to get where pac was at in 5 so in my opinion he is garbage because pac never had to diss michael jackson to get reconition
of course thats what happens when you let 11 year olds post comments
I think Eminem is great. My friend and I listened to him when we were going through some pretty crappy times last year. she moved 400 miles away but we still listen 2 Eminem together when were sad over the computer. Eminem is great. ur just jealous becuase Eminem is a big success. If people on the street hear Eminem their like oh Eminem he is a great rapper but if they hear Tupac’s name their like “Who”?
funny funny funny wow blood eminem is a fucking faker he ripped tupac off anyways he takes his beat and he still cant flow to them he is garbage tupac died at 25 and he sold more then eminem had in his whole career so when I hear eminem I’m like “shut that shit off and turn that tupac on”
hey hannah how old are you ? I mean what kind of a comeback is that shit I heard that when I was like 10 dogg so you need to take your middle school disses and just shove them up you and your friends ass

Amber’s right. He has his own life. He’s a good guy if u people wanna diss on him thats ur problem.
P.S tupac shakur just b cuz we like different things doesn’t mean u have to be an ass about what i like. U don’t know me and u don’t know my friend so lay off.
Eminem isn’t very good…in fact, he’s not much better than Mac Dre. There are many other rappers are much better than M&M such as: Scarface, Notorious B.I.G., Immortal Technique, and don’t forget the greatest rapper of all time: Tupac Shakur, Makavelli.
West Side, nigga.
eminem is gay and whack he cant even beat vanilla ice and two he is not even rap hes pop rap. plus his flow is is wack and he sounds like a bitch and ppl who say eminem suck because its true and just trying to tell u white ppl the truth. i bet udnt even know who rza is and ur saying that u know wat rap is pls. fags like eminem and g unit are a disgrace to biggie and shyne. if u want to listen to real rap listen to shyne and ghost face killah
eminem is such a pussy not even as
tall as a girl. what a faggot bitch
cocksucker he is. he must have
sucked a lot of cock to get his cd.
LISTEN UP!!!!!! SLIM IS GREAT AND ALL BUT HE ISN’T THE BEST!!!!!! HE IS ONE OF THE BEST FREESTYLERS NEXT TO JIN AND CASSIDY, HE IS ONE OF THE BEST LYRICIST NEXT BIG DADDY KANE,KOOL MOE D, ICE CUBE, OTHER OLD SCHOOL GUYS, AND HE GOT LUCKY!!!!! FROM INFINITE TO SLIM SHADY HE WAS UNBELIEVABLY LYRICAL!!!! AS SOON AS HE GOT ON MTV, HE STOPPED BEING LYRICAL BECAUSE HE DOENST HAVE TO ANYMORE, HE’S BEEN SOOOO HYPED UP, HE DOESN’T NEED TO BE “GOOD” ANYMORE!!!!!!!! ONCE UR ON MTV BULLSHIT, UR GOOD TO KNOW, HE KNOWS THAT!!! THE BEST RAPPER EVER, IS TUPAC, LISTEN TO ALL EYES ON ME, THUG LIFE, 2PACOLYPS, ME AGAINST THE WORLD AND THE REST!!!! 65% OF EMINEM’S FANS ARE WHITE KIDS, PREPPY WHITE KIDS!!!! SAME WITH FIFTY’S AND ANYONE WHO ISN’T A REAL RAPPER ANYMORE!!!!!!!! PEOPLE LIKE NAS AND MACK 10 DONT GIVE A SHIT BOUT MTV, THEY JUST WANNA KEEP IT REAL!!! EMINEM IS GREAT, NOT THE BEST!!!
Eminem the best niggaz, D12
burn in the hell eminem haters, go die
eminem has a high level of skills yes,but most of you kids who listen to eminem don’t even listen to anything else and i absulutley HATE when faggot ass kids listen to one type of music and not anything else.Eminem is dope, not as dope as he used to be but he aight, if you mutha fuckaz wanna know what complex rap is then listen to some swollen members,dilated peoples, and wu tang clan (eminem is a fan of them coz he even quoted them in a freestyle)
and don’t idolize eminem, i used to when i was like 12 years old and i realized i was just a stupid kid and i grew up, listen to eminem if you wanna but you don’t have to be obsessed or go cut your wrists to show how much of a devoted fan you are (wtf) you kids need a life, grow the fuck up
I agree with Sketchy
I do not give eminem any artistic merit, he raps about negative things with shock value aimed at young teenagers who need to be told what they like and dont like. if you want real hiphop you have to step out of that shit and decide what to listen to yourself.
i don’t give a shit what u peeps say bout him. u need to calm u fuckin selves down he has a life ya know? none of u will get him. and stop fuckin fightin it just shows ur a queer.if ppl hate him fine wit me, if ppl like him i’m right behind him.o and no offense but to some of u women u need to get a life besides an all m&m life.
freaking chill homies !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!your all abought to kill eminem god leave him alone ppl
yo wigga wuz up dont theese ppl need to chill the hell out…………………………….=p god your all messed up in the head
p.s ur all fucked up in the head if ur obssessd wit m&m i have no problem wit him but i’m not a queer and not obsessed wit him.
dang you pplz dont talk alot
also if any girls r intrested i’m single.
fuck u yoyoyo ur a queer ass mudda fucka
wigga is a wigga
wigga is a monkey
fuck u all queers y wont any fuckin person answer me!!
FUCK EMINEM ! He may have talent, but he’s nothing but a homophobic little wigger who 12 year olds look up to ! Wise up people, he’s trash.
mike hut your fat
yo don’t be fuckin wit da wiggas but i kinda agree on the emenim part.
mike hut your really screwwed up in da head
o my fu*king hell eminem is so hell hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
yo wigseter who the hell r u?
all you fuckers dissing eminem are all just fucking little bitchs hiding behind your computer names if you were face to face with any rappers youd probably shit your selfs and who ever was the one who said eminem used to be good but is shit now is enirly right he is becoming the bigest bitch compared to what he used to be encore was a afucking joke and fack form the hits alubm omg what the fucks wrong with him, talking about gettting fucked in his ass and i only listen to eminems older songs and the unreleased albums but i do listen to tupac, 50 cent ect. and you dumb fucks cuttin ur wrists i dont even know what to say but how fucking stupid are you and the girl who was saysing shit about tu pac you ave no fucking clue what your talking about so just shut the fuck up
wigseter who the fuck are you?
don i agree with you to the fullest…i liked the slim shady lp and the marshal mathers lp but thats it..when eminem show came out i started to lose intrest in him….now hes a lil bit queer looking
I AM A JUGGALO AND I SUPPORT MY MESSAGE!
eminem is dope and will always be dope !but i prefer his old shit slim shady ep ,lp, and marshall mathers lp and some songs on the eminem show and encore i think people ask too much of eminem it seems every new album they expect sum over the top shit and when his shit comes out the say “he’s shit compared to what he used to be” and these people call thereselves fans ? fuck outta here dont ever doubt em cuz once u think he dont flip shit nomore he shocks the world so to all those sum-timey fans fuck off u cant do half the shit he does
