Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is not only a return to form; it’s a nostalgic walk down memory lane. Ten years ago, Eminem was known for his sharp wit, jagged tongue, rhyme scheme, and for being a raconteur. After The Eminem Show, his skills and talents became stagnate, diminishing slightly over the course of his drug addiction mixed with the death of D12 rapper Proof. Encore and Relapse, though having some great songs, proved to be his worst efforts to date. After getting clean, in 2010 he release Recovery; it was a glorious album that scraped what made The Eminem Show great. The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is worthy of being mentioned alongside its predecessor in conversations about the best in his catalog.
