perhaps. I argue that your second paragraph nullifies the first. He has been in rap since 1997, 14 years now. There isn't an artist alive who hasn't changed over 14 years. Besides very few even last that long due to producing the same old stuff.(Original post by lukejoshjedi)
It's debatable, I was a bit iffy about putting Eminem on there, it's hard to define 'selling out' if you're already a hugely famous mega star, how can he sell out if he's already mainstream and known worldwide - well if you count selling out as an artist changing their original style/content they had before they got famous just to appeal to a large audience then you could argue that
At the same time, Eminem's grown up and matured so ofc he won't be the same as he was 10, 11 years ago, so his music/style has changed as he himself has - Well personally I miss his more lighthearted humorous tone, all I'm sayin
you could argue it either way
The thing with rappers and 'selling out'.... Watch

The main problem I have with people selling out is that the sound gets highly simplified and sounds rubbish. Everything gets Dumbed down really. See the irony about Lupe here But yeh, would have no problem with so called selling out if it was actually good, which just sadly doesn't happen nearly all the time. Substance is a big factor with music, and selling out removes a lot of that.Last edited by Gob Bluth; 11-04-2011 at 00:06.
