Enough rhymes to may be try to help get some people through tough times – Eminem (Rap god)
If you are here, then you are for any of the 2 reasons. Either you like listening to Eminem or you are looking for some motivation in life.
Marshall Bruce Mathers III a.k.a. Eminem a.k.a. The real slim shady. With 10 number-one albums on the Billboard 200, his music still stands tall and gathers hooting whenever someone make an attempt to rap like him. Eminem popularly spelled as EMINƎM, is an inspiration for so many.
If there hadn’t been negativity and hardships in his life, Hip-Hop would have missed a one complete genre in itself and so many wouldn’t have the right idol in their life. This line might sound awful and selfish, but in reality that is what made him unique. When other people might do something awful to themselves, he took the bullet on the chest and stood tall. That is what made him the inspiration for so many to move on in life and do the right thing. BTW, have you seen this exclusive studio footage of ‘My name is’
Since in all of his songs, you would find something inspiring, something motivating, I am sharing 5 of his best work which is full of motivation and will give you the chills down till your spine. If you plan to hit the gym, got a heartbreak, depressed or any other awful reason because of which you are feeling down in life, these songs will surely buck you up and will help you move on in life with pride.
This song is from his album recovery which was released in 2010. The song is more about how he was almost about to give up on life because of drug problems, but in spite of doing that he took the courage and rose to a better life by quitting drugs. There are some really great verses in the song which are powerful and thought provoking.
I like the entire first verse of the song, it starts with a blast of some heavy words falling into ears. The best line out of the first verse is:
I’ma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly[Tweet “I’ma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly And all those who look down on me I’m tearing down your balcony”]
And all those who look down on me I’m tearing down your balcony.
This song won ‘Best male video’, ‘Best hip hop video’ at Mtv video music awards. Also won ‘Best rap solo performance award’ at Grammy’s.
As the title suggests, this song is really beautiful. Eminem is describing in this song how life can be unfair. When you are least expecting something to happen, bad things happen at that time. And during that time, how you feel that you are done and cannot succeed. But even at that time he thinks of not losing the heart as he cannot wallow on what has happened, rather move on in life and be the inspiration for others to not give up.
Best lines from the song [Tweet “I took my bruises, took my lumps, Fell down and I got right back up”]
This song is from his 6th album ‘Relapse’ which was released in 2009. This was the best song of that album and its video was shot in Detroit.
This is the best rap song ever released. Also, the first hip hop/rap song to be honored with an academy award. This song was released in 2002 for movie 8 mile starring Eminem himself.
This song has references from his own life and from the movie as well. It is said that Eminem did the entire track in a single take. There is nothing much I can say about this song as it leaves everyone speechless and full of goosebumps.
Best lines from the song:
[Tweet “No more games, I’mma change what you call rage, Tear this motherfucking roof off like two dogs caged”]
There are very few songs in which Lil Wayne has done some motivating rap. This is an awesome song. The video revolves around bullying in schools and the lyrics are spot on with that. An issue that Eminem himself has went through during his childhood days.
The sample of the song is taken from a 90s hit song ‘What is love’ by Haddaway. This song was also from the ‘Recovery’ album. This song while its release was ranking in the top 50 songs in many countries.
Best lines from the song:
‘[Tweet “When you’re so good that you can’t say it ‘Cause it ain’t even cool for you to sound cocky anymore”]
Till I Collapse
Its crazy that the official audio or video is not available for this song on YouTube. This is a link to a fan made video. The video is from the movie Real steel. To note, this song was used for the promo of this movie too. This is another great movie. If you haven’t watched it yet, you are missing on something. The song is a great gym track. You can play it and get motivation to do few extra sets of your work out.
