So Eminem has a new song out that I just heard on da ol' Mexican radio called "Lose Yourself." Apparently there is a quite an uproar over this as the station is "New Rock" (the Edge for you Taranna listeners) and a lot of callers registered their dismay that a "hip hop" artist was being played on their "rock" station. Ah, the days of Deadly Headly are long gone...

Anyway, I'm sure I'll be hearing more about this song. Here are the lyrics:

Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted

One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There'ss vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's chokin, how everybody's jokin now
The clocks run out, times up over, bloah!
Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
Hes so mad, but he wont give up that
Is he? No
He wont have it , he knows his whole back citys ropes
It dont matter, hes dope
He knows that, but hes broke
Hes so stacked that he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, thats when its
Back to the lab again yo
This whole rap shit
He better go capture this moment and hope it dont pass him


You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

The souls escaping, through this hole that its gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order
A normal life is borin, but superstardoms close to post mortar
It only grows harder, only grows hotter
He blows us all over these hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, hes know as the globetrotter
Lonely roads, God only knows
Hes grown farther from home, hes no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose cuz here goes the cold water

His bosses dont want him no mo, hes cold product

They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
He nose dove and sold nada
So the soap opera is told and unfolds
I suppose its old potna, but the beat goes on
Da da dum da dum da da


No more games, Ima change what you call rage
Tear this mothafuckin roof off like 2 dogs caged
I was playin in the beginnin, the mood all changed
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhymin and stepwritin the next cypher
Best believe somebodys payin the pied piper
All the pain inside amplified by the fact
That I cant get by with my 9 to 5
And I cant provide the right type of life for my family
Cuz man, these goddam food stamps dont buy diapers
And its no movie, theres no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
And these times are so hard and it's getting even harder
Tryin to feed and water my seed, plus
See dishonor caught up bein a father and a prima donna
Baby mama drama screamin on and
Too much for me to wanna
Stay in one spot, another jam or not
Has gotten me to the point, I'm like a snail
I've got to formulate a plot fore I end up in jail or shot
Success is my only mothafuckin option, failures not
Mom, I love you, but this trail has got to go
I cannot grow old in Salems lot
So here I go is my shot.
Feet fail me not cuz maybe the only opportunity that I got


You can do anything you set your mind to, man

I don't see why they'd complain..."The Edge" hasn't played real rock music in years as far as I can tell....Creed and Blink182 just don't qualify....The whole major label radio game is suffering right now...Eminem has been one of the only sure things for the industry of late....which is probably why 102 was hoping he'd be some kind of crossover artist....

In a fair and just universe only CBC and college radio are allowed to grace the airwaves....haha.

I'm really sick of hearing the same old tired whiney rock stars and gangster thugs....Eminem has just written the requisite "pity the obscenely wealthy yet troubled artist" song....And he really doesn't have to at this point, as he is still the biggest selling artist...If ONLY his 5 minutes of fame were up!

I'm hoping that eventually this bullshit will end soon, so we can all go back to worshipping the ghost of Kurt Cobain....well, maybe not quite like that....but we definitely need a radio station in that plays decent music (w. lots of independent artists) and has a signal that carries for more than a 2 mile radius....CBC is good but the music only happens at ungodly hours of the night for some reason....
