No Regrets – Eminem Featuring Don Toliver | Todos menos dos de sus álbumes han alcanzado el número 1 en el Billboard 200

Em ha construido una industria artesanal a partir de álbumes insulares y rencorosos que se enfurecen contra sus críticos sin hacer mucho para demostrar que están equivocados.

Music to Be Murdered By, lanzada sin previo aviso la semana pasada, se define por un cierto tipo de desafío, e incluso una integridad peculiar. Es un ejemplo desordenado, a veces lúcido, de un estilo de rap hiper-técnico que cayó en desgracia y ahora está volviendo a la moda. No es, estrictamente hablando, un buen registro (Eminem no ha hecho uno de esos en una década), pero cuenta con suficiente comando técnico y genera ideas suficientes para atraer su atención.

 

 

Eminem Defends ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ in Open Letter

Eminem’s latest album, Music to Be Murdered By, at times leaned heavily on one of the rapper’s time-honored attributes: a dependence on shock value. In its two most attention-grabbing moments, he raps from the perspective of the Las Vegas gunman who killed 58 people in 2017 (“Darkness”), and throws in an off-hand line making light of the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, also in 2017 (“Unaccommodating”).

 

El último álbum de Eminem, Music to Be Murdered By, a veces se apoyaba en gran medida en uno de los atributos tradicionales del rapero: la dependencia del valor del shock. En sus dos momentos más llamativos, golpea desde la perspectiva del pistolero de Las Vegas que mató a 58 personas en 2017 (“Darkness”), y lanza una línea fuera de la mano para aclarar el bombardeo en un concierto de Ariana Grande en Manchester, también en 2017 (“Incomodante”). Como era de esperar, algunos oyentes estaban molestos.

 

‘Music To Be Murdered By’ Is Proof Eminem Never Needs To Release Another Great Album

Halfway through its first week of release, Eminem’s Music to Be Murdered By is doing what Eminem albums do best: selling truckloads of copies and making critics question its merit. The rapper’s second consecutive surprise album and 11th overall studio effort is on track to sell upwards of 300,000 album-equivalent units this week, granting Eminem his record 10th consecutive No.

 

Music to Be Murdered By está plagada de diatribas contra los críticos que criticaron el último álbum de Eminem, Kamikaze de 2018, que a su vez distorsionó a los críticos que se sumergieron en el Revival de 2017. Em ha construido una industria artesanal a partir de álbumes insulares y rencorosos que se enfurecen contra sus críticos sin hacer mucho para demostrar que están equivocados. Está atrapado en un ciclo interminable de indignación y revisión, argumentando que sus críticos no tienen idea de lo que están hablando mientras hacen concesiones minúsculas que, bueno, tal vez su último álbum tuvo algunas deficiencias, pero esta vez va directo a la yugular.

 

Eminem’s ‘Music to Be Murdered By’: Five Burning Questions | Billboard

What, if anything, is Eminem still doing so well this deep in his career? And what about some of the other interesting chart debuts he fended off the No. 1 spot this week? Billboard staffers debate these questions and more here.

 

Bianca Gracie: A pesar de lo que puedas pensar de Eminem, debes dárselo al tipo: la lealtad inquebrantable de su base de admiradores es impresionante. Desde su debut a mediados de los 90, Em ha mantenido un sistema de soporte constante que se muestra constantemente en masa cada vez que abandona un proyecto. ¡Y los números realmente no mienten! Todos menos dos de sus álbumes han alcanzado el número 1 en el Billboard 200, y han alcanzado el estado de certificación Platinum. Pero aparte de su obvio atractivo general, creo que parte de este éxito se atribuye a su imprevisibilidad lírica. La gente vive para la controversia, y Eminem continúa engañándonos con su “¿realmente dijo eso?” apelación.

 

 

No Regrets – Eminem Featuring Don Toliver

[Intro: Eminem & Don Toliver]
(Oh, oh, yeah) Yeah
You know, if I had a chance to do it all over again (Oh, oh)
I wouldn’t change shit (Oh, oh)
D.A. got that dope
I’m screamin’ out no regrets

[Chorus: Don Toliver]
You been through the hardest spot, ego the largest, I made you a star (I’m screamin’ out no regrets)
I been movin’ slowly, tryna play it low, the ‘Vette look like a storm (Screamin’ out no regrets)
Put you through dumb shit, got you thinkin’ I run shit (I ain’t havin’ regrets)
I’ve been feeling so alone, just like I’m so lost, just like I’m—

[Verse 1: Eminem & Don Toliver]
Yeah, they miss the old me
I think they want me to OD on codeine
They want my life in turmoil like in ’03
They want front row seats, I give ’em nosebleeds
They want me imploding, exploding, self-loathing, eroding
I’m screaming at ’em with no regrets and I’m hulking
I’m rippin’ out of my clothing
I had to go see the doc like Kool Moe Dee (Yeah)
Never took much to convince Dre
Never been swayed by color or skin shades
Since day one, Hellraiser with twin blades of a sensei
Givin’ up, no comprende (Woo)
Tin brain, prolly fucked in the membrane
Slim Sha— mind’s in the gutter, but insane
Pen game like I just struck in the tenth frame (Screamin’ out no regrets)
Yeah, I live on the edge, I sit on the ledge
To shit on your heads, I been on the bench
Forgive and forget is the only thing I’d ever live to regret
Hell-bent on revenge, you left me for dead
I crawled out my grave, you better be ready and set
My enemies ain’t put an end to me yet (I’m screamin’ out no regrets)

[Chorus: Don Toliver & Eminem]
You been through the hardest spot, ego the largest, I made you a star (I’m screamin’ out no regrets)
I been movin’ slowly, tryna play it low, the ‘Vette look like a storm (Screamin’ out no regrets, yeah, no apologies, I ain’t takin’ shit back)
Put you through dumb shit, got you thinkin’ I run shit (I ain’t havin’ regrets)
I’ve been feeling so alone, just like I’m so (Yeah) lost

[Verse 2: Eminem]
All the hate, can’t tell exactly where it stems from
But it’s happening again, huh?
Y’all used to be in my corner
Now you just backed me in one
Innocent bystanders, I’m bound to hit some
For some adversaries, I carry big guns
So some targets’ll get the kill shot
Some, I just barely nicked ’em
I can make a mistake and erupt and end up takin’ a dump
Or sayin’ some dumb shit, thinkin’ I run shit
Misplacin’ my anger enough to give Earl and Tyler, The Creator the brunt (Yeah)
Shoulda never made a response, shoulda just aimed for the fake ones
Them traitorous punks, ’cause snakes are just cunts
They can get fucked with eight hundred motherfuckin’ vibrators at once (Yeah)
And for any of those who may have come close to about dyin’
And can’t listen to “Arose” without cryin’
For those who feel low like you’re ’bout spiralin’
But this is only for those that I’m inspirin’
Weapon never unholstered without firin’
My will I’m imposin’, foes are gonna feel like they’re in the throes of a mountain lion
They talk about my daughters hopin’ I fly off of the handle (Handle)
‘Cause my first thought is to trample and write a thousand bars
But sometimes it’s like dropping’ an anvil on a house of cards
Or Godzilla squashin’ a crouton with combat boots on
Or droppin’ a goddamn nuke bomb on top of an anthill
(I’m screamin’ out no regrets) Can’t do it, nah

[Chorus: Don Toliver & Eminem]
You been through the hardest spot, ego the largest, I made you a star (I’m screamin’ out no regrets, took it all)
I been movin’ slowly, tryna play it low, the ‘Vette look like a storm (Screamin’ out no regrets, yeah, no regrets though, no white flags either)
Put you through dumb shit, got you thinkin’ I run shit (I ain’t havin’ regrets, yeah)
I’ve been feeling so alone, just like I’m so lost, just like I’m—
