Same. Great song.

(I think 8 Mile in general is pretty strong)

Film? Soundtrack? Both?

Haven't actually sat down and listened to the soundtrack, but I assume both.

Same. Though I'm very ashamed to say I slip into the censored version when I sing it (climbed highest mountain, seen so many faces) more often than not cos it's the version I heard most often.

I do love all of the aforementioned songs, but another favorite that rarely gets mentioned (probably because it features Em in an introspective moment) is "If I Had" from The Slim Shady LP.

YouTube - ‪Eminem- If I Had (w/ Lyrics)‬‏

And, Travis, I know we've talked about rappers being too self-absorbed before...I don't know, maybe I'm a lot more forgiving of the genre because that aspect was a building block to the genre, but I'm still curious about rappers you enjoy who aren't obsessed with themselves?

More evidence of Eminem's recent lyrical abilities...I'm convinced that a majority of hip-hop artists are doing their best work on off-album tracks lately, and these would follow that trend:

YouTube - ‪Eminem - 2.0 Boys (Official Song) Ft. Slaughterhouse , Yelawolf‬‏

YouTube - ‪Eminem - Syllables‬‏

Ha, I do remember discussing this with you! Kid Cudi was the example that day, because he's emo. That does bother me, but I don't mind rappers talking about themselves as long as they're not bitchy about it. Rapping about how much ass you kick? Awesome. Rapping about how much other people hate you? Couldn't care less, tbh.

Ahhhh, ok. Thanks for explaining! That makes a lot more sense, and on the whole, I agree with you.

One of the reasons I thought Man on the Moon II sucked all kinds of ass.

That album was worth it for "Scott Mescudi vs. the World" alone. Probably my favorite hip-hop track of 2010.

The End was the only track I truly liked.

I rather liked Man on the Moon but hated Pt. II. I guess I prefer my emo rap whining about pre-fame.
EDIT: I did like 'Ghost'

The front cover alone made me livid. Oh look, I get to sit around and smoke weed and have sex with beautiful women, but fuck, my life sucks so much.
