  14. I just bought the new Eminem, and although there are a couple of songs on there that I don't care for, there are 3 that I thought were wonderful stories of his life in America. The first is "White America", #2 on the CD, which is a wonderful "story" of his rise to popularity amoung young people, and the fact that "Congress keeps telling me I ain't causin' nothin' but problems, for White America"....

    "Without Me", the currently playing single from this album, is good, but I find it to be "cute" rather than the hard edge that I usually look for in music of this nature. Again, the message of bucking the system is there (and that's a GOOD THING, right?).

    The other song is "Cleaning out my Closet", and is a WONDERFUL look into why this guy acts the way he does. If one listens to that song, with no preconcieved notions of who the artist is, your eyes will fill with tears, and your heart will feel with saddness for the little boy that he must have been. One particular line in that song that gets me is.... "remember when Ronny dies, and how you wished it was me...."
    No child should ever have to hear his mother tell him that she wishes he had died in place of someone else. This song gives insight into the HUMAN Marshall Mathers, instead of the rapper Eminem.

    Anyone that would like to hear any of these songs, let me know.... I will email to you after lunch.

  16. I'm not a big fan of HipHop, but I like some of the more intelligent stuff, like KRS-One, Zack DeLa Rocha, and OutKast. They're all great. But my faves in no order.

    - KRS-One
    - Zack DeLa Rocha
    - OutKast
    - Snoop Dogg (but only Doggystyle. i don't like the rest.
    - Wu Tang Clan
    - Run-DMC (haha, I love them when i'm caked... like now)

    so caked, i couldn't find anyone who'd mentioned KRS-One. He rules! but.... it's probably there.... among the blurrr....
