Default maybe basketball fans just don't like eminem...

because he is completely underrated around here. witness he fact that he is not mentioned nearly enough in almost every hip hop topic in this forum. for instance, the marshall mathers LP is easily the best rap album of this decade and may be the best rap album of alltime. and its not as if the guy is starving for fans either, i believe hes the second biggest selling rapper of alltime and could pass tupac with his new release. this board just doesn't appreciate him.

MM LP is overrated. It's very good, but hardly on another level than SS LP. It's also not nearly as classic lyrically as Infinite, which just suffers from its mellow production.

lol @ even close to GOAT.

This also comes from one of Em's biggest fans. He's easily in my top 5 favourites.

Thank you. Hes a good rapper but all this G.O.A.T sh!t got to his head. He didnt even have to put good music out for it to sell because he has so many fans. He began to make bad CD's, it seemed like he was bored. Made me wonder if he was just a gimmick to begin with. He took too much time off, even though crack a bottle is a decent song he sounds outdated on there.
