    Give it up.

    He's a gifted engineer in the studio... but if you know about studio work, you know that all they do is cover-up poor musicianship with a ton of compression, layering and effects.

    I know people in the industry

    I know the hard work and dedication it takes

    Until you meet someone in the recording studio you have no idea what it takes to make a song.. It's more then playing an instrument or mixing a beat and singing along to it
    Funny thing is, I was in the studio all last week with my band... so...

    How far has that got ya?

    If you could smoke Eminiem with instuments people would know who you are

    Obviously he is a genius in the musical industry because he has sold millions more records then you ever will

    Re: Is eminem a musical genius?

    I would love to see Bob Dylan try to mix a beat and write a rap and scratch on it and sell it

    Does that not make him a musical genius? No.. Because that's not what he does

    It's 2009, the new music is turntables a mixer and a mic

    And I'd like to see Eminem pick up a guitar (without a ton of computerized beats and effects behind him) and change the way an entire generation thinks about what's going on around them... without swearing.

    Thought you would have a response like that

    Eminem is the new brand of music man

    People in the 60s loved Hendix and them.. And some still love it.. It's new times.. Music is changing

    It went from flutes and saxaphones to guitars and drums to turntables and mixers and mics

    It's all still music

    I concider Miles David a genius at what he did

    I concider Bob Dylan a genius at what he did

    And I concider Eminem a genius at what he did

    BTW, if you haven't listened to a full Eminem album, or at least more than his radio songs, don't vote.

    Exactly it goes both ways

    No way could Bob Dylan rap behind an eminem beat.. And no way Eminem could rap to behind Bobs guitar

    Both are geniuses at what they did
