Eminem has always been explicit and self-centered in most of his songs. Self-centered in a good way that is, his songs are a like a window to the private life of this Grammy Award winning rap artist.
His latest hit song “Not Afraid”, lifted from the upcoming Recovery album did come as a shocker when it landed no. 1 on its Billboard Hot 100 debut. It’s 1 of only 2 rap songs that had hit number 1 on its release.
With the same feat that Eminem achieved, I can’t help but associate this song to our country’s recent policitical scene. After the Elections, the first automated that is, I have felt such a great deal of pride, a sense of victory, yet somehow there are hints of hesitation.
With the almost all of the returns already tallied , many of the young voters, whose bets weren’t doing well in the canvassing, demurred to the idea that a former President’s son is closing proclamation.
Many Presidential candidates have conceded, a good example to voters to settle down and except reality. The battle is not yet won, in fact, it hasn’t even gone half way. This is just the beginning.
I’m not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you’re not alone
Holla if you feel that you’ve been down the same road
