Eminem is one of the very few Hip-hop artists I like. Its a big deal for me when I like rap artists because I am not at all a big fan of the genre.
Even though he is a Caucasian, he is a lot better than most of the novelty rap trash coming out and getting ridiculously popular today.
Listening to him makes me appreciate a rap. I find rap really monotonous. I feel that if you hear one rap song, you hear them all. Not with this guy.
Part of his appeal to fans is his never-ending beef with other celebrities. I think this is just icing to the cake. Anyone can diss another celebrity and make a nasty song about another MC but no one raps like Eminem and makes music like him.
