EMINEM to rap NO MORE after his last performance in Sept. Posted on 07-15-2005

DETROIT (Reuters) - Rap superstar Eminem plans to make his last solo performance in Ireland in September, the Detroit Free Press, his hometown newspaper, said on Friday. Citing sources close to the 33-year-old rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, the daily also said his current album "Encore" would probably be his last as he moves to full-time work as a record producer. The final solo appearance of Mathers, the best-selling hip-hop artist ever, would be at a concert in Dublin, Ireland, on Sept. 17, the Free Press said. The newspaper quoted his manager, Paul Rosenberg, as saying no official decision had been made about the future of the Grammy and Oscar-winning artist who has recorded three top-10 albums. But Rosenberg said Mathers' current multi-platinum album was "certainly the cap on this part of his career." Mathers' spokesman at Interscope Records in Los Angeles could not immediately be reached for comment. The Free Press said the rapper, who has sold more than $1 billion worth of records, has grown weary of the media spotlight and may be musically spent. "Marshall feels he's said everything he can say as Eminem," one insider was quoted as saying. "The idea that he intended this ("Encore") to be his last record is something that everyone on the inside circle has known for a while." Another source said "Encore," which was released last year, had been an especially difficult record for the artist to make. "Marshall really struggles to write for himself now, to speak through the voice of Eminem," the source said. "He knows as well as anybody that there comes a point where you risk beating this thing to death." The cover shot on "Encore" shows Mathers taking a bow, and its closing song is entitled "Curtains Down." In the album's liner notes, and in his current concert tour, Mathers has also played up the figurative death of Eminem. "This is how you go out with a ****, baby," Mathers says in one video," after pulling the trigger of a pistol that misfires on himself.

Hey: I can't hate on the boy. Black or white - Em is lyrical. He ate up LOTS of mafukkas to get what he got, so you can't hate. Even when he was on that crazy-lyric sh*t, it was funny. But when he could get srious, he was ill. Example: His '**** Wrong' verse on Biggie's "Life After Death" or 'Renegade'. If u tellin me u wasn't feelin that, then you're either a hater, deaf, or just plain racist. Em is actaully my 3rd favorite lyrical cat of all timer (Behind Nas & Jada). Don't be surprised if he does go down as top 5 of all time.

Im sorry, but his lyrics aren't all that ingenious to me. I can't stand Eminem. Never could. He is obnoxious, degrading, disrespectful, and a flat out redneck. :razz: And that's not hating, that is simply expressing my honest opinion.

Yall **** are on the nut right now, ur sayin that Em as 4 multi platnium albums, when more of his fans are white, and since when is it that when u sell more albums ur better as a artist, thats bs. I told yall I gave Em props for Renegade. But he still aint betta than Jay, never in his life. He made it because he is a mediocre artist that happens to be white, and u know his white fans are gonna support him to death, and yall hatin on styles p,????! Gangsta and a gentlemen is a classic. Im takin what yall sayin to heart cuz imma tru fan of hip hop and rap, and to say this cat is top 5 of all time is crazy

dang y'all don't have to stone me and persecute me for liking commercial music... if i like it, i'ma buy it... and never did i say that Em was better than Jay... i was quoting was an artist said in the Ether diss.... i listen to all forms of hip hop and rap... i can go from mainstream to realness... so if i'ma sellout for buying commercial music... so be it... it's what i like... you don't like it... too bad... get over it... i ain't gonna argue back and forth over this... if i'm gonna get grilled over something like this and have people take my point of view to the heart... then i'll just leave it alone... i know people have different points of views... (and Brett, you don't have to reiterate it over and over, we know you don't like it) but if i can't just make a simple statement, and get stoned from it... then it's really pointless.... seems like a lot of posts i make in this forum are like this... so i'll just stop posting in this forum all together.... :???:

Eminem is one of the 5 best rappers and maybe the best actual lyricist of all time. Anybody that says otherwise simply doesn't know rap.
Please.
Top 5 **** or Alive..
ill name 10 right now even tho there are way more than that big pac jay nas krs one, tallib, mos def, dre, common, styles p, kanye even gettin up there Em is a ok artist no where near top 5
Thank you. Nowhere near it. He was a fad and I'm happy it's over. I never liked ANY of his songs. Sed just because he is one of your top five, DEFINITELY doesn't mean everyone who disagrees doesn't know rap....lol
Look at Eminem's rap style, aggressiveness, he actually rapped with a purpose in his songs, and his rhyming ability is just sick. The fact that pretty much every rapper has respect for his lyrical ability says enough. And Amir... how can you put Talib, mos def, dre, common, styles, and kanye above Eminem... That's just insane. I don't even have words to describe what kind of slap in the face that is.. They haven't accomplished half of what Eminem has.. and he would eat any one of them easily, except for maybe Mos Def. Mos Def would have some fire too. Kanye has ONE album.... And Styles is nice, and I met a lot of folks that feel he up there, but I ain't neva heard higher than Eminem.. None of these cats I mentioned in this post are felt like Eminem when he comes on a track by most folks. And it's not cuz he's white, but cuz he's nice.

Yep...If everybody else can reitterate how much they dislike Em and say he is overrated, I guess I can reitterate that he has tru talent which I respect, and music I enjoyed listening to. :arrow:

I honestly think Sed was the only one who felt that way, about the top 5. If u noticed even all of us who are Em fans didnt cosign him on that. I respect what he does, and will lawys be a fan, but I know personally I wouldnt put him in the top 5.
