  • DIMINISHED EMINEMINENCE (NY Post reviews the SNC, shreds it apart)

    WITH the showman ship of a modern P.T. Barnum, hip- hop's favorite Caucasian, Eminem, rede fined self- promotion last night at the Roseland Ballroom.

    Eminem pulled a hat-trick of hype. By promoting his Shady Records label mates, he advanced his album, "Encore," due out later this month, and pushed his affiliation with the Sirius satellite pay radio company, which has tapped the rapper to head up an uncensored hip-hop channel.

    To build the hyperbole, the Ballroom was transformed into a mock political arena for what was dubbed the Shady National Convention. On board was MTV, which filmed the proceedings for a broadcast on Nov. 16th. The event was even transmitted live via Sirius. For the small effort of the hoaky staging, Eminem got maximum bang for his promotion buck.

    The preposterous premise of the night was that the rapper was being nominated for an unspecified office, such as the richest performer in hip-hop.

    After waiting nearly 2 1/2 hours for the event to get under way, Eminem finally took the stage, dressed in a politically correct suit and tie.

    He looked like a dork and confirmed that with a blathering ramble that made little sense, dishing up pearls like "People like you and people like me, like me" and "I'll run for anything."

    The rapper made you want to run for the hills with inanities like that. There were a lot of people at the event who actually thought Eminem would have something meaningful to say, considering he is revered for his acid wit and aggressive music. He proved them wrong by laying a giant egg at the podium.

    Where he went right was in the concert performance that followed the let's-play-politics portion.

    But even here, the performer got low marks for his crass commercialism, which found him rapping what amounted to an ad for people to subscribe to pay radio.

    When Eminem finally ditched the suit and got into his hoodie, baseball cap and running suit, he was much more at ease. When he was just a plain old MC again, he was able to concentrate on his real calling.

    Eminem emphasized material from his new record during that musical set. From the concert snippets, that record is much less autobiographical than past discs such as his "Marshall Mathers LP." The new stuff shows a maturity, although it lacks the humor of his past.

    The boasting toasts are subdued. His set did spark the audience to life with well-worn oldies like "Kill You." where he got some response going.

    The up-front wait for the show to get started diminished the crowd's enthusiasm and shortchanged many from seeing the entire gig, which also featured scheduled performances by D-12, Dr. Dre and 50 Cent.

    Hopefully, Eminem's delusions of grandeur are just a passing fancy.

                People still think Eminem is not a gimmick? Ask your self this, this detroit homeboy" has now moved to Hollywood. Not surprising, since he said he doesnt care about a grammy even though he goes to more award shows than P.diddy. Eminem IS CORPERATE AMERICA. Still pretend he is some rebel fighting 4 a cause, yeah, his bank balance.
                FUCK THIS PEACE SHIT, ALL YOU WIGGAS BE DECEASED.

                  Who the hell you tryin to fool? This is Eminem we're talkin bout right? The broke ass boy from St. Joe and Detroit? Of course his ass is about some green man, wouldn't you be? You're the kind of person that feeds the monster which IS Eminem. If it wasn't for dumbasses like yourself, who would he rap about? Tupac is the one that SWORE to fight for the people, and fuck the government. Eminem now has followers that expect to see his ass at those awards, because most of the time he's winnin a few. You need to freakin chill man, it's just music, and you're just jealous.
                  Rob Schneider is one funny SOB! Here's a quote "Yeah, I think I've met half of the Auzzy troops here in Iraq, 5 of them" LMAO!
