Why does he care?
‘Why does Eminem care?’
That’s the resounding thought swirling my brain as I listen to his new fiery remix of “Chloraseptic,” featuring 2 Chainz and Phresher.
In it, Em goes off on the critics who’ve thrashed his new album Revival to pieces. In case you haven’t heard, it wasn’t received well.
“Not as raw as I was? ‘Walk On Water’ *****? *****, **** my ****,” he raps. “Y’all saw the tracklist and had a fit ‘fore you heard it, so you formed you verdict/ While you sat with your arms crossed, did your little reaction videos and talked over songs/ Nah, dog, y’all sayin’ I lost it, your ******’ marbles are gone.”
There’s more. Towards the end of the track, Em doubles down.
“What’s with all the conscious rap?/ P!nk, Beyoncé this, and Kehlani that,” and finishes with, “I just add it to the fuel in my rocket pack.” His verse also includes the line, “Why can’t you be more like Macklemore/ Why you always gotta smack a *****?” so there’s that.
I know anger is Eminem’s thing, but there’s bigger fish to fry. This just comes off as whining.
