In a richly illustrated, provocative collection, the controversial rap artist shares uncensored lyrics from his blockbuster albums and includes his commentary on the origin of each song. Reprint.
It's a sign both of Eminem's belief in his own songwriting skills and of his wide-ranging popularity that he has the confidence to publish a book of his rap lyrics: it's irrefutable proof of his talent that they prove to be not only readable but consistently compelling. The rapper reveals the origins and purposes of the various pieces featured here--miscellaneous messages to loved ones, and warnings to and put-downs of those he despises, as well as exercises in unvarnished self-expression--in a series of accompanying notes that also give a valuable behind-the-scenes look at the circumstances surrounding the lyrics' recording. Playing with and expanding the usual litany of drugs, guns, and hoes favored by many of his peers, Eminem here conveys a roughly-hewn composite picture of his life and times. ANGRY BLONDE is a wild, scabrous, funny, furious torrent of words that form a self-portrait more honest and revealing than any autobiography ever could.
