Never bought an Em album, but a lot of my other friends, who are black have bought a shitload of his records. There was also a white girl in my old hood that had every single album he ever made. Impressive.

Kanye,Ross,Drake,Wayne all make better music but Eminem happens to sell more because 95% of his buyer are white people from a whole different genre who dont listen to hip hop to begin with. the other 5% are the asian and mexican buyers.
and to the cat that said Em has more serious songs that deal with death,drugs and poverty, well that is from a white perspective.

Kanye is the only one in Eminem's realm. Drake and Wayne are way off, Ross just had his best album and it is not as great as some of Eminem's older work.

As I grow older(oh god, did I really just say that?), I dislike Em's music more and more. It's just so repetitive to me and feels so forced and commercialized.

95% are white and the other half are asian and mexican buyers? Nice math.

So Eminem can appeal to whites, asains, and mexican but not black people? Ok.

that is what im saying.i dont get how they sell less than Eminem when they make better music.

what i have also noticed is alot of black people are infatiated with a rappers aura, swag or personality. alot of the newer generation wants to relate to a rappers image.unfortunately for Em, he doesn't have a swag. and his rapping just seems dull.like that song with Rihanna.damn i hate that sh1t.

also he needs to stop with that serial killer voices, that sh1t is creepy.

No, he's white trash from Brooklyn. He's one of those 'displaced' oxymorons.

alot of Eminem songs deal with corny sh1t,saying some homosexual lines, making fun of female celebrities. i mean just last year he went into war with Mariah Carey.

you made a statement that is simply not true. People have pointed this out. SO just shut the **** up and move on.

white people dont do the same kind of drugs we do, white people dont deal with death the way we do and white people dont be in the hood like we do. poor white people dont see the same thing that poor black people see. what is what makes me relate more to Jay's music than Em's. he seen it from most black folks perspectives.

You said NO black people buy his cd. That was our implication. Then, when people bitchslapped you and you looked like a ****ing moron, you said, NO MY REAL POINTS WAS THIS.

In case my point is not clear, you are an idiot, you tried to racebait, you failed, and ill just blcok you know because i KNOW your response will be asinine.

BTW, i'd bet anything you ARE white, because only a white person would be on the net doing this kind of inane race baiting.
