Eminem is back in the news after dropping his blistering seven plus minute 'Campaign Speech', and announcing he has a new album on the way

We shall see if Shady is still be able to do his typical huge numbers at 44 and in the age of streaming.

But what isn't in dispute is how influential Em's been.

Kendrick Lamar discussed how the Detroit rapper inspired him in an interview with GQ.

The clarity, I got my clarity just studying Eminem when I was a kid. How I got in the studio was all just curiosity. I had a love for the music, but it was curiosity. The day I heard The Marshall Mathers LP, I was just like, How does that work? What is he doing? How is he putting his words together like that? What's the track under that? An ad-lib? What is that? And then, Why don't you go in the studio and see? So I do that. Then it became, How's his words cutting through the beat like that? What is he doing that I'm not doing, now that I'm into it? His time is impeccable. When he wants to fall off the beat, it's impeccable. These are things that, through experience and time, I had to learn.
Can you hear Em's influence in K.Dot?
