He fell off after Eminem Show, I stopped checking for him after that point. The songs I did hear after I wasn't impressed with, voice, content, lyrics... meh.

He's his own lyricist.. now every artist comes up using tried and true methods. AKA Hopsin.
I think what a lot of hip hop fans fail to realize is, artists that come up as legends have this certain "sound" or "style" that makes them, them.
When I listen to new songs on the radio(just to laugh at how ****ty everything is), its all recycled styles.
As far a story telling he's up there as one of the best, for sure. But for me, his content never kept me as an Eminem-enthusiast, but I give the man his props.

Just read through this entire thread. I'm no fan of Em but you have to give credit where it's due. Em lyrically is a monster; there's no denying that. He's in my top 10 as a lyricist dead or alive. But he is NOT nor will he ever be the greatest. His voice has & will always be annoying which takes away from his flow & delivery. I've always compared him to Canibus because his voice held him back from blowing up the way he should've.
I knew he was the real deal lyrically when I heard this in the late 90's:

One of the better lyricists ever, if not thee best. But....his songs have fallen off since he is doing better in life and has lost the rage and passion. New album is pretty good, but nothing 'goats gonna goat' about it.

Enjoyed his earlier stuff. After The Eminem Show, I was done with Em. Haven't listened to any of his later material or picked up any of his newest albums. Marshall Mathers LP is defiantly one of GOAT rap albums though.
Can't stand listening to him now though. It's commercialized garbage most of it. I understand everybody moves on with music as they mature, but Em just isn't the same guy anymore. Nothing compares to the old Em. He was one of the illest lyricist I've ever witnessed to grace the mic. His word play is incredible.

I don't rate him as a lyricist. He got famous for being angry and foul-mouthed. I write better lyrics scribbling randomly on toilet paper all the time.
