    I cant believe people support this batshit crazy white trash women hater, it is disguting how his first singles of every album are him dissing celibrites, especially women, he must feel really good now that MJ is dead, the way you used to make fun of him smh…
    He only gets attention dissing the others and the problem is, he is one of the most successful rappers atm.. he is Perez Hilton has a rapper

  3. Ashley April 29, 2010

    It’s a grower. I do have to say I appreciate the fact he apologized for using those annoying accents all those years lol and he admitted Relapse wasn’t a great album.

  4. Tha Phoenix April 29, 2010

    I really like this song. Love the fact that he’s acknowledging past mistakes and not trying to insult anyone on it.

    And let’s even try to act as if he isn’t one of the best in the game . He most definitely is.

  11. Tha Phoenix April 29, 2010

    Cici’s new song is @95, but it just came out on Monday I swear? Wait till next week, that’s when this week’s sales will actually show.

    But, Xtina? Her song’s already been released on iTunes for over a week – definitely not good enough. And I’m a fan and I’m saying this.

    Eminem and Rick Ross are selling records?!?! …Rap is sooo dead!!
    What can ANYTHING Eminem or Corrections-Officer Rick Ross could possibly say, that ANY black man would EVER be, even remotely, interested in?

    …A Corrections Officer, “faking the funk”, pretending to be ‘Freeway Ricky Ross’; are y’all for real?! Whenever the mainstream gets their hands on anything, they corrupt, distort and inevitably, without-fail, destroy it!

    So tell me, ‘Mr. White Rapper’ how is ‘your existence’ ever/even related to mine? …IF we do the crime, we go before a judge and jury, who do y’all think will do time?
    Mr. White Rapper – I can’t tell the last time, I saw you on the corner, with YOUR belly: “talking to you!”
    Mr. White Rapper – Did you get shot 9X’s?
    Mr. White Rapper – So you held a knife to your wife’s throat, you shoved HER, to the ground, while she held your infant child in HER-arms, and you still out-there; getting your paper!

    Mr. White Rapper, Justin Bieber and Rick Ross; if you’re a young black man, and you out-on-the corner and you can’t get YOUR record-deal?!? …Look-no-further: White Rapper, Justin Bieber and Corrections Officer Rick Ross!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  14. andy April 29, 2010

  16. Bobby D April 29, 2010

    Eminem has zero talent in my eyes.
    anyone who builds a career from making fun of others success is nothing to be promoted, or be proud of. it reminds me of elementary school bullies.
    Eminem is a trailer park piece of s*** with a winey ass voice and abuses drugs. I think the reason he is so popular is because there are so many other young white boys who are from nothing and can somehow justify Eminem being a role model.

    Truth is Eminem is pathetic. and all his s*** sounds the same.
    Rot in Hell eminem you punk ass loser

  17. HaYYYYYY April 29, 2010

    dam
    this s*** went hard
    i cant wait for the album sooo much

  18. Gstar April 29, 2010

    Eminem hasnt made his name off of bashin celebs you ignorant f****, if you lustened to his albums you would know the lyrical skill he has. U black folk on bout white trash, hes putting out far better music than everbody else out there atm. If he is “lucky” y has he won grammys fir all of his albums but one? Why does every other rapper not challenge him? Becuz they wull get destroyed! Punk ass b******. Highest selling rapper/artist of the decade for his skill! Not for his colour you ignorant,stupid, pricks

  19. LANDEN April 29, 2010

    xy and z your a racist ass motherfuckin B****!

    This is BY FAR one of the MOST POWERFUL SONGS

    IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW! WHO ELSE PUTS THERE EMOTIONS

    on there album in the game like this? NO ONE!! Not anymore.

    Anyway, I love how in the second verse he responded to us fans

    when states that he recognizes that the accent was a turn off and

    he was still recovering from the past making the album. Im SO GLAD

    AFTER PRODUCING ALL 21 SONGS ON RELAPSE 2 THAT HE DECIDED

    TO SCRAP EVERYONE AND WAITED UNTIL HE WAS A FULL TWO YEARS

    CLEAN TO BEGIN MAKING A NEW ALBUM AND STARTED FRESH WITH

    A CLEAR MIND BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT YOU GET. BRILLIANCE AND

    RAW TALENT AND EMOTION. F*** DRUGS. ALL THEY DO IS F*** UP

    FAMILIES AND LIVES ANYWAY. I KNOW THEY TORE MY FAMILY APART

    SO I CAN RELATE TO THIS S*** RIGHT HERE. AND TO X Y Z AND YOUR RACIST

    AGAINST WHITES STATEMENT ANYTHING THIS MAN HAS TO SAY ABOUT ANY

    DRUG RELATED DOWNFALL CAN EASILY RELATED A BLACK MAN. BECAUSE

    DRUG ADDICTION CROSSES AND AFFECTS THE LIVES OF ALL RACES, AGES, AND

    SEXES YOU F***** IDIOT. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE WITH THAT RACIST ASS

    COMMENT. OH BY THE WAY, IM WHITE AND DATING A BLACK GIRL. DOES THAT

    BOTHER YOU IN SOME TYPE OF WAY CAUSE IT DONT BOTHER HER OR ME YOU

    STUPID F***!

  20. LANDEN April 29, 2010

    OH YEAH ONE LAST THING X Y AND X. MY BROTHERS FIRST OFFENSE WAS

    A FELONY FOR POSESSION OF HEROINE IN THE FORM OF ONE BAG. HE DID

    NINETY DAYS IN PRISON FOR USING. HONESTLY IT WAS THE BEST NINETY

    DAYS OF HIS LIFE. AND I KNOW MAD PEOPLE WHO GOT PROBATION. SOME WERE

    BLACK. GUESS WHAT. MY BROTHERS WHITE LIKE ME. YOU CANT MAKE

    STATEMENTS LIKE THAT AND PRETEND THEY RELATE AND CORRELATE TO EVERY

    OTHER WHITE SOUL OUT THERE BECAUSE THEY DONT. NEWS FLASH. WE BOTH

    BLEED THE SAME.

  21. HaYYYYYY April 29, 2010

    this is sooo amazin
    the lyrics r just WOW
    i got shivers listenin to this

  22. tracy April 29, 2010

    @GSTAR

    Eminem is that you? STFU please. Eminem has dissed many black celebs. Will Smith, Nick Cannon, Lauryn Hill, the list goes on. He had the nerve to call Lauryn dirty trash. When he went in on MJ, Stevie Wonder called his fitlhy white trash ass out. Now go back to massa FEMinem and the cotton field.

  23. tracy April 29, 2010

    @LAST BOY ON EARTH

    He later acknowledged MJ as a musical legend on MTV news after that horrific, disrespectful “Just Lose It’ video. The dumb low class snowflake didn’t expect the backlash. I never gave a s*** about Eminem. He’s a trailer park loser who got hyped up just cause he was the first relatively talented white rapper. His constant insults towards celebs are f****** tired. On to the next one.

  24. X,Y,”and Z” April 29, 2010

    @Landon – A black man can NEVER be racist!! Once you understand that, you and I can have “some semblance” of discourse! But I have history to reference, YOU (YT) have taken everything black folk made and then sell-it-back, to black folk. “Stupid-that-we-are”, we listen to YOUR b******* and bow-our-heads and pray to YOUR blond haired, blue-eyed white Jesus!

    Once you saw that the world sees ‘the genius’ that-is Jazz music, you THEN claim-it as YOUR-own. Everything YOU get your hands on, you’ve corrupted, polluted and deformed, only to aggrandize yourself and discredit others.

    I can offer no-more a “shining-example/critique” on/of the “Justice System”, judged upon/within the court-of-public-opinion, than the recent troubles of-one Christopher Brown.
    It seems that a 19 y/o black youth, who has NEVER gotten into ANY trouble WHATSOEVER; one who, was-to-be, and was often-referred-to: the NEXT MJ/King of Pop; was/is NOW made “pariah-and-outcast”; if NOT leper! And it also seems, that 44 y/o Charlie Sheen, even with decades-of-misogyny ‘to-his-history,’ was/is granted redemption-after- redemption; rehabilitation-after-rehabilitation; and chance-after-chance, but ONLY because HIS skin is white!

    So Jessie”Nazi”James’ fan-base YET-STILL grows, as-does Charlie Sheen, as witnessed by the popularity of HIS TV-sit-com show.

    Never-again do YOU make-mention the “possibility of racist black folks,” YOUR HISTORY proves ‘we black folk’, can ONLY form “defense mechanisms” but-ONLY to survive your relentless attacks, both literally … AND figuratively!

    …Let me reiterate: There is NOTHING any white man/boy/child can-rap-about, that would interest ANY black man; NOT-a-ONE THING!

    So please, take your condescension, white-guilt and cultural-piracy, and sell IT, to some OTHER black-folk, who DON’T KNOW BETTER; I AIN’T BUYING IT!!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  25. X,Y,”and Z” April 29, 2010

    Landen = Ladon, typo, my bad! ..But the sentiment, and-my-point; YET-still stands!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!!

  26. Martian McFly April 29, 2010

    XYANDZ+Warp and skewed mind set= the biggest idiot I have ever seen. I see you defending Chris Brown, HE BEAT A WOMAN, white or black or whatever thats a b**** move. As for Sheen, Stop over analyzing this dude, he’s f***** up just as much the next guy okay fine. By no stretch of the imagination can that perceived as racist, he just wasn’t in the public eye as much as chris is all.

    Oh, and all my words are spelled correctly. F*** all you bastards for talking s***. Don’t be angry just because your lives fall short of what you wanted.

  27. X,Y,”and Z” April 29, 2010

    @Martian McFly — It’s obvious that you can’t see past your bias, racism, self-hate nor ignorance! But where do I begin to unravel that tangled mess-of-a-diatribe you made-post?

    1.)I ONLY state-the-facts, if YOU, so-choose, to interpret ’em as “in-defense-of” or “defending Chris Brown”, so be it!
    2.) …No! Chris DIDN’T “just beat-up/on” Rihanna! If he did, why is HE not-now, in jail, or had-been convicted of Battery? Do you know, with the “weight of evidence”, IF that NOW misread, misquoted and misused Cell Phone Warrant, WAS-IN-FACT true, he’d NOT have been offered probation, he’d currently reside in jail! As reference, I offer Golf-Club wielding, jealousy-enraged Elin Woods and her act of wanton vengeance, upon-the-person of Elgin ‘Tiger’ Woods!
    3.) …So I guess “shoving a woman, to-the-ground, while SHE holds YOUR infant child, in HER-arms, doesn’t qualify as a “b**** move?” …So I guess, holding a knife, to-the-throat, of the current Ms. Sheen, and treating to kill her, with infant children in the home – neither qualifies?!?
    4.) I guess, the-fact-that, NOW, Mr. Sheen’s X-wife, and ‘Bond Girl’ Denise Richards, and several of his X-girlfriends, who have publicly said they’re NOW-WILLING to come forward and testify as to Mr.Sheen’s character, or-lack-there-of; falls-short of “Bitchassed-ness?” …And well-within the “actions of the-next-guy…..?!?”

    …Funny, if-NOT-peculiar, that you classify-and-define, my-take-on Charlie Sheen/Chris Brown as “over-analysis” on THIS post, where/when I was critical on/about “the white rapper!” …’Hit a chord/nerve’, now did I? So you can’t address my thoughts on Eminem, so you define, with your limited-and-marginal faculties, my “take-on Chris Brown/Charlie Sheen” and then you go-off: on-a-tangent!

    Now to address, what leaves me most-incredulous, ’bout your “writing/logic”: “he just wasn’t in the public eye as much as chris is all.” <<– HUH? But you're right, he wasn't in "the public eye" because YOU(YT), had a young-black man to 'figuratively lynch!' Why was there no-mention of Denise Richards' claims ALL THROUGH 2009?

    And if you meant to say that Charlie Sheen isn't in the "Public Eye?": Charlie Sheen is the highest-paid actor in/on Prime-Time TV; he's had 4 Emmy Award nominations for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series; he's been nominated for the People's Choice Awards 4X's also; he WON the Golden Globe award in 2002 for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV series; and he ALSO has a 'STAR' on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! So…"NOT, in-the-Public-Eye…..?!?!" …Or was it that the "Public" DIDN'T want to see? …Was it that "Obama Backlash…?" …If you want "contemporary-comprehensive-media analysis," I can surely write-you, a 'proper-treatise!'
    …But I've stated facts, and they are that Charlie Sheen, WHITE 44 y/o, Charlie Sheen was given chance-after-chance, after HE HAS beaten-and-abused HIS X-wives and X-girlfriends.

    But you know what? …Don't, take my-word for it; come THIS Summer, 'Ol Charlie wants to 'take-it-to-trial,' that felony-plea deal isn't to Charlie's liking, 'so-off-to-court-we-go!' With the former Ms. Sheen ready-to-testify, and give "blow-by-blow" commentary/playback/recounting, we'll ALL-see and CAN'T avoid all the "B****-assedness/B****-moves" we could EVER imagine!

    …So pay very-close attention to these-very Urban Blogs 'Martian McFly', you're going to hear and see terms like: 'Double-standard'; 'Racism'; 'Hypocrisy' and 'Redemption' being used in a way, yet-heard! And you can THEN-thank ,Charlie Sheen for aiding-in-the-resurrection, the career-and public-life, of Christopher Brown…!!

    I just have to laugh at music critiques coming from a bunch of clowns who do nothing but come here and catfight over likes of Ke$ha, Rihanna, Gaga, Kelly Roland, Xtina, Beyonce and Britney all day everyday. What the hell do you queens and hags know about ‘talent,’ or what good music is? You prance around to gay s*** like “Tik Tok,” “Rude Boy” and “1,2,3.” LOL! Yeah, right.

  29. matthew April 30, 2010

    co-sign. Eminem did this song in a way that makes it even better pop than all the pop stars out there. They trash compared to him; cant write meaningful lyrics to their lives. Oh, and he also sings better than Lady GAGA on this track.
