I’m a criminal
Cause every time I write a rhyme, these people think it’s a crime
to tell ‘em what’s on my mind - I guess I’m a criminal
but I don’t gotta say a word, I just flip ‘em the bird
and keep going, I don’t take shit from no one.
Eminem on his beef with Insane Clown Posse
On Feb. 18 2001 Madonna wrote a letter to the Los Angeles Times newspaper in defense of Eminem over the public and media criticism of his offensive song lyrics and Grammy Award nomination.
“What is the big deal about Eminem? Since when is offensive language a reason for being unpopular? I find the language of George W. much more offensive. I find the hypocritical nature of most popular figures in our culture much more offensive. I like the fact that Eminem is brash and angry and politically incorrect. At least he has an opinion. He’s stirring things up, he’s provoking a discussion, he’s making people’s blood boil. He’s reflecting what’s going on in society right now. That is what art is supposed to do. And after all he’s just a boy. Thank God he’s rebellious and not well-groomed. He gets my vote. Yours truly, Mrs. Ritchie.”
Bringing this back cause it’s a member of ymcmb saying Em is the greatest of all time. That is like a golden moment right there. And this is the only reason why I have somewhat respect for Drake.
