The Truth About Music

He’s Back And “Not Afraid”

Earlier today, I posted my New Music Radar. My conclusion was that there was nothing worth spending your hard earned money on this week. I lied. Released one day before normal release day (new releases usually come out on Tuesday), Eminem released a new single on iTunes on Monday called “Not Afraid.” Honestly, this isn’t the best Eminem song I’ve ever heard. One thing it is, is mean. This song showcases what Eminem does best. It is raw emotion put onto paper, backed by a beat. Here is one of my favorite lyrical versus from the song:

You can try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay ‘em
But you won’t take this thing out these words before I say ‘em
Cause ain’t no way I’m let you stop me from causing mayhem
When I say ‘em or do something I do it, I don’t give a damn
What you think, I’m doing this for me, so fuck the world
Feed it beans, it’s gassed up, if a thing’s stopping me
I’mma 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
