You obviously don't know what you're talking about. Eminem is the top selling rapper ever, he had one album that went diamond and another just shy of diamond. In an era where albums aren't selling well he moved 500k units in 2009 with Relapse that ended up selling 2millish and he has an album coming out 6/22/10 called Recovery. He was on a monster hit in Forever with Drake, Kanye and Wayne in 2009...the list goes on.
And as for this topic, no he's not an illuminati puppet, c'mon now...
The artwork on the album insert for both albums is really provocative, but particularly for Revolutionary Vol.2. You got the whole cabinet and Osama catching hot ones? Are you at all worried about government surveillance or persecution? I hear the State Department paid Eminem a visit over a song he recorded a while back where he said something about Bush, and I wouldn't really consider Eminem a politically threatening rapper or necessarily an opponent of the current administration.
I don't think they take me as seriously as someone with Eminem's sphere of influence, I only made a few songs and sold a total of about 32,000 records along with Vol.1 so why the # would they care about me? Now Em moves 8 million each time he drops an album that's why they are more concerned with what he says.
