    I think EM comes from an older school of hip hop where the sound of the flow was just as important as the lyrics....

    I'm going to give it to Eminem for flow

    Eminem throws together some really abstract ideas but Lu comes off a little bit more real and sincere.

     

    Lu for the lyrics

    Eminem has an agressive style....I think that if the two ever battled everyone would be under the illusion that EM won because he'd come so hard...

    Lu has a good ear for making things that shouldn't sound good work out.

    On the Recovery album it

On the Recovery album it seemed like Eminem made garbage choruses to prove a point....but I can't think of any song where Lu wasted any time in a song.

EM always makes a few throwaway tracks that'll be radio-safe too.

 

Lu for style.

 

Winner=Lupe

 

but Drake would wreck them both.

Ok Drake is my fav,Lupe is my fav,Eminem is second to them to me.So Lupe Fiasco lyrically is better than Both,sorry its the truth,hes more though provoking.Drake has a better flow than Lupe.Em has an equal flow to both.Em has more record sales,and award wins than Lupe,but that doesnt mean anything. =Winner is Lupe Fiasco

This comment goes waaayyy back to Scooby_Doo from like the 3rd page. about lupe naming all of the artist in his Fire freestyle. He was neither putting down nor giving props to them. he named them because they were all on the BET 2010 Hottest in the game list (which lupe didnt make). a small part of the reason he droped Enemy of State was out of reaction to him not making the list. And he adress that in that lyric. (he didnt drop his name because he didnt make the list). So he was givin props to them for being listed...... but still Hinting that he would destroy each and every single one of them. (because we all kno dat list is bullshit anyway) ((Fuck BET))

I agree with you Damien completely... at least someone understands

Lu has JUST started getting better with his ennunciation. Back in the Fahrenheit and Food & Liquor days it was downright terrible. I can't compare the two because they're two completely different types of rappers in terms of subject matter, how they rap, and the styles they rap in.

ok, first I aint ever heard someone say "getting raped by your Dad" is commercially safe. Whilst I don't agree with alot of the content of Em's tracks you can't knock the guys ingenuity, flow and passion - for me both Em and Lupe are probably, if not are the best two rapers out today for my generation . Both have pin point clarity of the social situation, both have rhyming speeds of impeccable timing, whether it's Em on 'No Love (where he kills LiL Wayne's section) of Lupe on his new track Scream or back on tracks like Blackout, I can listen again and again to those tracks, just in ore of the flow. Last but not least, unlike Busta Rhymes ( no disrespect, I love some of his work) or some over rappers Em and Lupe's delivery in terms of diction/ Annunciation are so clear and crisp it's as if they live on a planet where people can speak at a hundred mile an hour and be able to understand every word. All I would say is Lupe deserves so much more radio time than he gets and Shinning Down should have done so much better than it did, that is a wicked track and I hope it's on Lasers.

Eminem has always had violent music. He first album had songs about him dragging his dead wife to a lake and him getting the shit beat out of him in school. He's been talking about drugs and killing himself. None of this is new. The Eminem Show had 5 songs released as singles for the radio and had 2 (Haile's Song and My Dad's Gone Crazy) more that charted even though they weren't released as singles. He's had at least 4 singles chart since his second album. He was the highest selling artist of the decade. Of course his songs get plays on the radio.

before recovery, the radio only played at the most 3 of his songs, listen to them now, they all can be played on the radio, they are radio friendly, he dumbed it down

oh! & "25 to life" is like a letter 2 "she" (hip-hop) who abused/used & underappreciated him? That is PURE B.S. he is probably the most beloved rapper of this generation & is constantly "voted" #1(by website polls & critics alike)...

Eminem is mainstream he says thngs for "shock value" inorder 2 sell on like 85% of his songs...& stop ridin him his songs like "love the way you lie" are OK lyrically ex: "like a stair case & f*ck'n step"

How is Recovey mainstream? I dont like W.T.P and Seduction has a whack concept, but he still murdered it lyrically. And true songs like Not Afraid and Love the Way You lie are constantly played on the radio, but those are lyrically great songs.. Listen to "25 to Life" and "Going Through Changes" and tell me thats not hip hop... cuz if that isnt then idk what is

how about the whole recovery?
RefleCT's picture

@MALIK how is getting raped by your step dad mainstream in any way? haha hes really not mainstream... people just like him and thats why he gets air-time on the radio. I really cant think of that many songs by him i would consider mainstream

True but at least he's his real sefl now. Oh and if you have been following on Eminem's struggle, here's an update. It's a series of 10+ parts. If you haven't watched the other parts, you will not understand this clip as much. There will be more video updates but the creator of this film is still updating. This is the latest update. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGnMYD2uuNo Eminem is in a good/bad situation right now. As you can tell from the "Recovery" album. The only thing we can do is hope for the best for him.

he made a lot of new younger not true fans, but he also lost a lot of real fans

Em has sold out because he made commercially friendly songs like getting raped by his step dad.

YOU GUYS HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS SONG! IT"S CRAZY!!! lol Sorry for the yelling but it's so crazy and true. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oICR6Sm0XYQ

@SCOOBY_DOO: Ok if you actually think Lupe was giving those people "props" in that song then you need to re think it... Do you honestly think Lupe would give props to someone like Gucci? C'mon.... And yeah i am a hater of lil wayne.... rightfully. True people know his music and all his songs, but at the same time i bet you those same people who think he's nice couldn't name 5 Lupe songs. Just because your known doesnt mean your a good rapper. If your wondering why i dont like Wayne, just ask me... and i'll happily tell you why. @SUPERNODYBODII: True Drake talks about a few certain things... but at least he's true to what he's talking about. "The resistance" is a song about how he himself changed up... he can be personal and is honest in his music which makes him good... although he isnt on lupe or Em's level. and @LUPEFORLIFE: How did Eminem EVER sell out? As a matter of fact his whole career is controversial! He never sold out.. and if you're telling me songs like "Going through changes" or "25 to life" isnt hip hop then idk what is.. And true "Not Afraid" and "Love the Way You Lie" have catchy choruses but the lyrics behind them are great. Em has never sold out, and it seems like hes always been honest to himself.
