I believe that Eminem was better in the 90's when he was "Slim Shady". His music was funny, upbeat, and was good to listen to. Now his music is really serious and kinda boring.

Con may begin their argument


Change is what every artists wants in order to reach a wider audience.
In the last decade eminem's popularity has grown past any other artists,he has brought rap from america to a wider audience .
serious may be but not boring ...his collextion has grown wide and better and richer in taste ...
he still brags about himself,last decade gas good but the present scene atmosphere is tense ...people have problems ...he writes about relationship..his music still keeeps people up on their toes and selling records have already proven that
Debate Round No. 1


Well Eminem changed for the worst. "Slim Shady" was iconic and his music made people laugh. Even Mockingbird and When I'm Gone are better then the sh!t he has out now.


Calling him a joker,he is not in laughing business friend.
he has evolved to laugh on himself...still kills his fellow mates.
recovery was way better and he is 37 he just cant be the same young guys rapping about high school guys and girls.
his verses are tight and and his subjects are way better than his fellow rappers who just keep bragging about themselves
and his lyrics have grown more meaningful and tense ..and more his verses were more about himself and his life ,and his life has changed over the years.

RECOVERY-It is the best-selling album of 2010 and has sold 5.7 million copies worldwide.
people love him fore something...his music
Debate Round No. 2


People will buy Eminem because he's Eminem. I liked it better when he made fun of people and came at 50 cent and other rappers.

So please, Vote Pro


thought we were in 90's

people wont buy nonsense ....people are not fools there are lines and rhythm that still make people go crazy and more than before...that's versatility of an artist and he is good at it making room rap in mainstream music.humour was good but now you don't get that boyish humour his style has cant humour like the one in Marshall mathers that so will not fit on a 37 years old artist

thats solid and tough..

this one different...and thing og today

If you think he was not serious before
take these

Reasons for voting decision: Hmm, i actually liked Em's flow/style better in the 90's. It was more raw and flavorful, although he has some recent gems as well. I believe con argued better. Actually both sides were pretty bad but Pro repeated his argument a few times and did not elaborate on it, while con had more arguments and examples such as growth/recovery album.
