    Is Eminem Overated? I think the answer is yes! Now while his earlier work (The Slim Shady LP,Marshal Mathers LP, & The Eminem Show) were good artistic peaces of work....his latest stuff has been crap & Recovery is a 6.5/10 (in my opinion)...& I can name at least a few rappers who bring his level of "realness" 2 the mic & havent really "dropped off"...Mos Def,The Game(dont hate him 4 rappin bout what he knows the "gangster life"),Papoose(dont hate him cus' he chose 2 stay underground),Ghostface,Black Thought...Let me know your opinions...

his excuse for making encore and relapse, was that he was on drugs, read his autobiography and he says that he did drugs during slimslp, pretty sure hes done

Encore was a sellout album? It was a sell out to what, to whom? Everything on past Mosh to Mockingbird is just Em talking about weird sexual things and celebrities.

encore was not decent, i was a huge em fan (pre recovery) and that album is prolly in my top 20 worst albums.

No Eminem isn't overrated. Outside of Ghostface he's so above and beyond all your other examples it's not even worth making an elaborate analogy or metaphor. Encore was decent, Relapse was better and Recovery is on par with The Slim Shady LP despite some through unnecessary tracks like Seduction and WTP.

Mos Def has got some unique skills. A few weeks ago I heard one of his early albums called Gravity he did with Talib under the name Bush Babies-check it out.
