But when he's not being deep and political, he can also spit some nice rhymes and metaphors. His music definitely is graphic at times, but obviously it's just exaggerations meant to evoke that "DAMN!" factor
...The blasphemy of a nation,
Got my back to the wall cause I'm facin' assassination,
Guantanamo Bay federal incarceration,
How could this be the land of the free and the home of the brave?...
I'm a weapon that fires,
lyrical projectiles with no mercy,
I'm cold blooded like reptiles,
touch a pregnant _____ and make her give birth to a dead child,
everytime I flex styles,
_____'s vacate the premises and become exiles,
I manufacture rhymes like textiles of X-files,
and lighten juveniles...
So after hearing that, I decided to check out his music, and it's truly awesome. He can rhyme with unbelievable skill, and he's really political and deep too.
...I'll watch you topple flat,
go ahead and holla back,
can't freestyle-- you're screwed off the top like bottle caps,
beneath the surface,
I'm overheatin' your receiver circuits by unleashin' deeper verses than preists speakin' in churches,
what you preach is worthless,
your worship defeats the purpose,
like President Bush takin' bullets for the secret service...
His rhymes and metaphors will leave your jaw on the floor. If I had to recommend any artist to check out, it's definitely him, because he's really underrated for how incredibly talented he is.
capture the essence and hold it hostage,
like passengers controllin' cockpits with loaded glock clips,
won't stop till pigs fly on solar comets,
chased by exploding rockets through hell while it's frozen solid,
Nostradomus predicted the approach of 'Bolic,
wit' a weapon armed like Megatron's shoulder socket...
Freedoms been overthrown by skull and bones scroll and key,
Lunatics upside down crucifix on their rosary,
Its the home of the brave land of the supposed free,
And trilateral commission expeditions overseas,
Opposing me's a socially accepted secret known to me...
...Like lets get it on act righteous cause a fast crisis,
Double gas prices and blame the fact we tax-hyped it,
But observing optics can see through a vermins logic,
To just turn a profit and fatten halliburtons pockets...
Here's a bunch of rare freestyles combined. It's hard to say which ones are freestyles and which are written, because he spits a verse which is later used in the song As The World Turns, but they're all still dope. My favorite one is probably the last one which starts at 6:00
...Clinical studies show that I'm cynical,
There's no one who's identical to my fresh and authentic flow...
I could probably find 50 videos I'd like to post to illustrate his skill, but I'll just post a few more
...So when I drop the science,
______ ______'s tell me to stop the violence,
start a fire and block the hydrants,
I'm just a mean person,
you've never seen worst then,
so when Slim gets this M-16 burstin',
you gettin' spun backwards like every word of obscene cursin' on the B side of my first single with the clean version,
stoppin' your short life while you're still a teen virgin,
unless you get a kidney specialist and a spleen surgeon....
...Gimme eleven Excedrin,
my head'll spin,
medicine'll get me revvin' like a 747 jet engine...
The first one is a verse from No Apologies, but the other four I haven't heard until I saw this video. The last one is my favorite:
...A braniac with a cranium packed full of more uranium than a maniac Saudi Arabian...
Even though many of those freestyles could arguably have been pre-written, in this video, words are thrown at him every 20 seconds and he spits a sick freestyle off the top: Alright, enough about Eminem
I'm keepin' it raw,
illegal like Malique and Jamal(?),
cause I don't believe in the law like I'm Steven Seagal,
flippin' off the police while Im leapin' the wall,
take a bunch of Tylenol and fall asleep in the mall...
(the rhyme pattern continues for like 6 more bars)
A place to spend my quiet nights,
time to unwind,
so much pressure in this life of mine,
I cry at times,
I once contemplated suicide,
and would've tried but when I held that nine,
all I could see was my mama's eyes,
no one knows my struggle,
they only see the trouble,
not knowin' it's hard to carry on when no one loves you,
picture me inside the misery of poverty,
no man alive has ever witnessed struggles I've survived...
...smokin' mad Newports
'cause I'm due in court
for an assault that I caught in Bridgeport, New York...
...What is this relentless approach to know if I'm broke or not?
Just cause I joke and smoke alot,
don't mean I don't tote the glock...
...The Wu is too slammin for these Cold Killin labels,
Some ain't had hits since I seen Aunt Mabel,
Be doin artists in like Cain did Abel,
Now they money's gettin stuck to the gum under the table...
...Raw I'ma give it to ya, with no trivia,
Raw like coc aine straight from Bolivia,
My hip-hop will rock and shock the nation,
like the Emancipation Proclamation...
...Guess who's back in the house,
Axe and the Outz,
that wack crap you yappin' about gets you cracked in the mouth...
Here's one where Eminem starts it off, and this is one of the best verses of his that I've ever heard rhyme-wise.
By the age of aquarious,
my mindstate was gregarious,
various opponents whose stature was hilarious,
like you-- throwing fairy dust,
then frowning on a whack chorus,
Proof was on the scene before Nat Morris,
cold as a black forest in these starving streets...
...Rappers wanna be screenplay actors, so I'm givin' their spine fractures like linebackers from the Greenbay Packers...
...Money ain't the root of evil, it be much more than that,
American taught me to kidnap and torture cats...
This cop bring the city hoppin like a rocka with binoculars,
Took me and these 2 Rastas and a mobster cat for hostage,
Said that we were imposters,
He's an impatient government agent,
From the United Nations and said we had the proper information,
About the aliens, vegetarians, devils and aryans,
These are civilized Barbarians we'll ______ bury them....
