TO BE CONTINUED...
We didn’t for real. Only backpackers and people who were intrigued by battle rap and even they were iffy on him.
Not At fukkin All
Not Where I Live
Not At All
J-Hood got more burn than Slim Shady ever did round these parts
Yeah they did.
Em was a megastar.
We all rocked with him.
I ain't saying we bumped him nonstop but we were Def tuned in.
Old enough to have been there with ID
People definitely listened to Em. Not on no religious shyt, but he was cold as hell and said some outrageous shyt and could flow for real. I think it wore off after his 2nd album but folks definitely listened to him.
We were more into Paul Wall at the time cuz him and Cham was killing those Swishahouse tapes.
Yeah everybody loved EM. Especially 8 mile time frame
That’s just the truth. Black people weren’t into Eminem like that.
Call me city bias but everyone fukked with Em from the beginning to the Eminem Show/8 Mile phase. Y’all can just say you don’t like him cause he’s white but I never heard anyone say they didn’t listen to him until he fell off
Then again I actually take that back...
Eminem next to a solidified rap guy? You heard
Dead Wrong? Sure
Forgot About Dre? Sure
but like Eminem on his own? Not really...at all
I don’t know all of my people from the D seemed to fukk with blade ice wood and doughboys. That isn’t meant to knock eminem he clearly sold a ton of albums and was extremely popular and had classics and put on 50.
Everybody was fukkin with MMLP summer 2000
