Eminem - Infinite

That's the thing bout most major stars. People assume there wasn't any real talent because the artist is a watered down version of what got them started in the first place. Jay Z is the same way. When you look at his early work, you can see how much care went into his process. But not everyone can appreciate that. Same thing with Lil Wayne. You listen to his stuff now and its garbage. So thoughtless. but he paid his dues in his early work. All of is early stuff is nothing but his heart, but people didn't appreciate that stuff.

The watered down stuff is what reaches the masses.

The difference with Em is that he is still really heavy lyrically. Even on his watered down stuff.
