Yes, I know. It's been awhile.
Yes, I know. For all of you who know me as a Christian, you are probably wondering if you are at the wrong blog after reading that title. But. You aren't.
To me, Eminem has been a very controversial figure in the music industry. You can count on him for two things: One, to be explicit. Very much so. Two, to lay down some sick beats. Obviously, the first is a horrible way to write music, but a lot of his songs have a "clean version" on itunes. Especially with his new album, I get the feeling of him searching for Christ. Ignore the obscenities. Get the clean version. Eminem is probably the last person to talk about if you are a Christian like me...but I'm starting to see him differently...I have a completely different view on people like Lil Wanye (>:O) but, this rapper seems different then the rest. In his new album, he seems to be shouting that he is imperfect. This is an album about him conquering drugs. In other words, his Recovery.
And that is the first step to finding Christ. To acknowledge your imperfect self for what it is. I sincerely hope and pray that he does find Christ.
