Eminem’s career hit a local maximum with his 2013 release The Marshall Mathers LP 2, but ever since then, he has been traveling on a downward projection. Once an artist who coupled his internal rage with politically incorrect lyrics in order to instigate the public turned into what could be said as an old man yelling at the clouds. Beginning in 2017, his witty lyricism and fierce delivery started to vanish while his already substandard production quality dwindled as well. This all reached ... read more

Time and time again, rappers have fallen into the trap of venturing into the genre of rock thinking that they will find success. Time and time again, rappers have experienced the complete inverse of that hope (Lil Wayne, Ice T, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco). After all of the failures in history, rapper Kid Cudi and producer Dot da Genius thought that they could defy this trend with a rock album of their own. In 2012, under the band name WZRD, the two released their debut self-titled album. While Cudi ... read more
