My daughter saw 8 mile and was amazed at his acting chops. We both do think a few of his things are quite good, but I wouldnt consider us fans of the genre by any means.

The interesting thing about Rap is that anyone can do it in 5 seconds.
It does not require any talent or musicianship.
You don't have to have any songwriting ability whatsoever.
It's even easier than Punk and a lot more boring.
At least Punk was exciting.


I disagree. I'm not a huge lover of rap, but it does take talent. At least, it shows in the more talented rappers. I have to agree with Brains. Eminem is one talented dude. I've listened closely to his lyrics, and I finally saw what all the fuss is about. The dude can really write. Seriously. And as far as rappers go, he is an excellent rapper. Have you ever tried rapping a song? I mean REALLY tried? It's actually very complicated. Especially songs like Eminem's. So yeah, it definitely takes talent. Am I fan? It depends on the artist, but not really.


I must say, I'm not generally very keen on rap, but at times there can be some clever rap songs out there - notably "Walk This Way" by Run-DMC, featuring Aerosmith. Actually, ten years ago, some of my colleagues and I in school did a rap about pollution, and it went down a treat in class. I think we'd all been asked to get into groups and do poems on the subject, and we went one better. Ah, you could tell even then that music was a passion . . . [8D]

The only Eminem that I know of is the one that melts in the mouth and not in the hands.

I think that John would have appreciated Eminem's music. They are a lot a like. If you listen to some of his songs you can see similarities to John's. Also, he probably wouldn't mind the violence, as in one of his interviews he said he was a very violent person, and that's why he cared so much about peace.[:)]
