20583, Eminem is NOT Elvis
Posted by spirit, Wed Nov-29-00 08:28 AM
...and especially not Pat Boone.

Elvis and Pat Boone got some of their biggest hits from covering already successful R&B tunes made by black artists.

Eminem writes his own songs and has a unique style.

It would be one thing if Em was blatantly ripping off some black person's style...or DOC wrote his lyrics...but neither is the case, so I don't think the analogy between Eminem and Elvis or Pat Boone works.

Spread love,


"You broke my head
and you fractured my spine
you told me
youíd be forever mine
you broke my law
and there is a fine
and itís a very vengeful kind
And Iím stalking
for my love
And Iím watching
from the buildings above
Well, I put the rope on too tight
With you in a cage,
itís such a beautiful sight,
Donít worry about my monkey,
He looks,
he wonít bite
My vengeful love..."
