Can MGK Become the Next Eminem?
Everyone gets old and to be honest, it is better to burn out than fade away. Eminem is 42, and we’re really starting to wonder, “How can one person stay so angry for so long?”
That said, Eminem is a true inspiration. He went from rags to riches, but that’s not important right now. What is important is that Eminem spent his career not only proving that white men can rap, but also that thugs do cry. I grew accustomed to getting down with “Mockingbird” to “When I’m Gone,” but as his career progressed, Eminem had less and less to be sad about.
The king must be replaced. I’m not saying I want Mathers to quit – I want him to go out on the highest low note possible. But someone needs to fill the void of tragic rap, and MGK wants to be that guy. Listen to “Gone” and see if MGK can do what Eminem did so many times before him.
