Nearly 30. I was a "fan" when he was actually good. Now he's trying hard to stay relevant. Also lmao @ him mentioning the Manchester Bombing in his bars.
Sorry I just mistook you for a youth since I've heard youths saying similar lingo. Like lit, kino and gucci.

After 20 years he's still way more relevant than the mumble rapper/RNB hacks and their 15 minutes of fame that come and go all the time. This album definitely isn't as good as Kamikaze but still pretty good btw.

Revival was trash. Kamakazi was angry like MMLP and this feels like The Eminem show with more content.

Enjoying this one a lot and Royce is really amping up as a solid producer.
I still dont understand the Revival hate, i f ing love that album.

In a financial sense, Eminem isn't one person. He's a brand, who financially supports and is backed by dozens if not hundreds of people. As an individual, he may or may not have chosen to target the woke audience to make money. But as a brand, he and his team chose to go that path. So I won't support them anymore, the same way I won't support Hillary Clinton after she eloquently explained why a quarter of the citizens of the country she wanted to lead should be categorized as "deplorable".

I don’t respect or like Eminem anymore since his diss track against Trump. I should have said lost his credibility to me. It has nothing to do with any kind of tactic.

Eminem is the one making it about politics when he raps about Trump and changing gun laws.

He’s just trying to get in with the Jimmy Kimmel crowd when those are the kind of people he always railed against when he was any good.
I mean, hasn't Eminem always been like this? He used to rap against Bush back in the day too. Seems strange that you would lose respect for him now.

It is weird for sure how TV/Media in general has always made fun of the presidents of past but Trump is off limits (now) because...why?

Show or summarize the lyrics in question.
a simple google search would have answered this, but ok:

he's usually got like 2 shock value/mainstream targeted songs on each album, that's always been how it is. i wouldn't take it too personally

haven't listened to the new album but i'm lukewarm on eminem. i listen to him while working out sometimes and his diss track of MGK last year was pretty good

I've only listened to a few tracks so far. Seems alright. To be honest, the last Em album that I really liked was Relapse. All the albums since have had great stuff (other than Revival) but I think Em has trouble putting albums together. He's one of the best technical rappers of all time and consistently entertains with his pure ability to spit, but the albums have been all over the place. I think he needs Dre to have a bigger hand in how the albums are put together

That was a considerably different situation, but I can understand why you would compare them. It's a loose comparison at best. He rapped against the Iraq war. The Trump thing on BET was an obvious attempt to score woke points and wasn't targeting any specific aspect of Trump, just the fact that he exists. For woke points.
