Anyone notice that in Toy Soldiers, there is a name edited out in the first verse.


it wasn't my intention
my intentions were good
I went through my whole career without ever mentioning _____


Based on the lines following it, Eminem is obviously referring to Suge Knight.

that was just out of respect
for not running my mouth
and talking about something I kneww nothing about
plus Dre told me to stay out
it just wasn't my beef
so I did....

Since when was Em afraid to call out names? I guess the industry still is scared of the Deathrow CEO.

Yeah I did. I think that was done for artistic purposes so that people would wonder who exactly he is talking about but I immediately thought of Suge too.

I think it was done because it is perfectly acceptable to be afraid of Suge Knight.

Actually, it's not hard to figure out who he is talking about, so maybe he was afraid of getting sued or something?

As far as the rest of the album goes, I like the "Just Lose It" video, but the song is trash. I sampled the rest of the songs on iTunes yesterday, and I'm suprised to say that I didnt hear anything I liked. I was REALLY looking forward to this album too. Color me disappointed :(

    Seven you said that Spend some time was like his 21 questions, were you serious? It just sounds like a bunch of angry guys bitching about the girls they lost. Any song with the lyric "I never would have thought I would see you out of control even though my penis was deep down in your hole.." Have you ever listened to Smile? Its a nice popish track. Spend some time comes off very dark and sad.



It is like Smile and 21 Questions as it will get radio play and the females will dig it. I have seen that song on quite a few female pages already. Women liked Superman and that had to be the most misogynist song ever. One of my fave Em tracks actually.

I disagree. 'Mockingbird' is far and away the best song on the whole album. It actually has some content beyond him dissing people in poor fashion and I would almost consider it a better version of 'Haile's Song' from The Eminem Show. He actually shows some insight as well as using a great multi-sylable storytelling flow (two things he used to be the best at). And he doesn't diss Kim at all, in fact it's as though he's apologizing for *his* misdeeds as a parent. As far as 'Crazy In Love' though (and essentially the rest of the album), now *that* is garbage.

And the reason he doesn't outright mention Suge is because if you look at the lyrics LionJeetSingh posted, for him (Eminem) to drop Suge's name there would be to totally contradict what he's saying.

I got an AIM message on log-on that I could listen to the full album. I've got it going right now.... you can access it here:

http://channels.aimtoday.com/music/default.jsp

quality is low-ish but you can get a feel for it.
