    "He still trained, and boxed...therefore he's a trained boxer, amateur or not" Moron, anybody can train. You could shadow box in your living room and call that training. Fact is Curtis never competed professionally. You can't slant something that never happened.

      what do you call the exact opposite of undefeated? would it just be defeated? cause thats what Gunplay is at this point. Nigga got knocked out cold again at his own fucking concert 2 weeks ago for talking that tough gangster shit but he couldnt back it up!
  • imho
    SSLP? seriously..not MMLP or ES.. slim shady lp was his 3rd or 4th best
    • ksot
      They already have MMLP reissues, but I agree with the Eminem Show part. They should reissue the Eminem Show on vinyl considering it was his 2nd most successful album to date.

    now 808's & heartbreak is bad, i just think his 1st LP or even late registrations is better. not sure where their going with this. 808's wasn't even close to a classic record

    They should have hooked up Kanye's College Dropout, Late Registration or Graduation not that AutoTune bullshit... Other than that the list is pretty decent.
