      Eminem has always been an artist who I equally admire or loathe depending on the day. At his best I find him to be a brilliant, profound writer who really captures emotions and thoughts skillfully in his music and words. At his worst he is childish and comes off as an overgrown five year old. Yet,

      there are several songs in his catalog are unforgettable. One of those for me is his chilling story wrapped in a rap package “Stan”.

      Everything about this song just works for me. The moody, melancholy sample from Dido just might be one of the most brilliant samples ever. The lyrics and how they are delivered is skillful ...


      • and intense. Slowly the anger grows as the character of Stan slowly loses his grip until the song comes to a violent and terrifying conclusion. Eminem, responding as himself, is equally convincing as he differentiates between who he is in his music and himself writing back the crazed fan.

        When Eminem channels all his emotions and experiences

        into his music and comes from a real place he easily is one of the best rappers of the game. “Stan” is the song that caused me to recognize him as an artist instead of a celebrity. While many of the songs since have been nothing but a joke, when he is on his A game Eminem is profound.
