if it is one thing that eminem is doing is being black. it is true that he sings a genre that would be more popular among black people but his lyrics are way different and most of the time they make so much sense. one little example is "sing for the moment"
btw he is a moron and its not hard for him to act stupidly
i dont have an answer to #1 as that's not arguable. #2 However, i disagree. He doesn't TRY to act black. It's the environment he lived (or made himself live in since he was comfortable there) in all his lifel That's how/where he was raised.
There's one fact that you can't deny (if you know much about rap) : He's damn good at what he does.

he just another kid who trying to live like a black men...
That Implies that the Rap calture is the way black people live and that's ignorant IMO. It's like saying that a black, college educated person, who speaks like a typical white person and who grew up in a middle class suburb is "TRYING TO BE WHITE!"
You'll guess Eminem is a person is twisted just from listening to his lyrics, but i dont know him personally to know at what extent he is twisted. you have to know that he doesnt say everything he raps about. I do admire him however for standing up to what he believes in. He never crumbbles to the media and others' pressure.
However, when it comes to Rapping, he's nothing short of brilliant. He knows what to say, when to say it, and how to say it. He's definately no idiot. His style is creative in many ways yet classical in other.
The more you listen to him the more you'll admire the work he put into the tracks and want to listen to more. I've collected most of his music (Eminem Show, Marshal Mathers LP, Slim Shady LP, 8-Mile ST, D-12 Devil's Night, G-Unit, Beg for Mercy, and a couple dozen of his mixtape tracks)
i believe he is a person whpo has been through many things in his life.
few years ago,i was a huuuuge fan of his and i have collected endless informations about him and his life.
of caurse,you don't even need to know nothing more but listen to his lyrics.
they say everything about him.
i know he might act a bit strange or he might over-react sometimes but exept of that-i admire all his work and his try.
he made a huge success from basically nothing.
and,few days ago there was a program about him on tv and i was very touched when he said that first of all he is a father and that his daughter is the most important person in his life...
and i believe that his daughter was his motivation is his life to do whetever he did...
and you know,i was very sad when i heard that when em's uncle died his mother said that she wished it was her son who killed himself instead.
i believe that really hurt him as it would hurt any of us
