Eminem has been critically praised since bursting onto the scene with 1999's The Slim Shady LP. But he's also received some bad reviews, like in 2018 when a lot of people came down on his Kamikaze album.
During a sit down on his manager Paul Rosenberg's Paul Pod: Curtain Call 2 podcast, the "Lose Yourself" rapper talked about his issue with rap critics and how many aren't qualified to give reviews.
“It’s frustrating when you’re doing some sh*t technically, and people who think they know what the f*ck rap is about start giving opinions on it, but they don’t hear what the f*ck you’re doing," Em explained, according to AllHipHop. “Like if I rhyme an entire f*cking sentence and every syllable hit, they would literally think that at the end of it I was rhyming ‘bat’ and ‘cat’… There’s an art to that ... We ain’t listening with the same ears.”
Any reaction to Em's gripe with rap critics?
