There were some criticism surrounding Eminem’s verse that he recited on BET Cypher last month. Although what he was saying in the verse had social relevance, he got flack for the bars not being up to par with a typical Eminem verse. In his new song ‘Walk on Water,’ that features Beyonce on the hook, Em seems to tackle the criticism and add some of his own self doubt within lyrics. He talks about once having “the world in his palm” in comparison to how people critique his music now. Even though he is considered one of the best to ever do it he seems uncertain about some of his lyrics. “The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless / And it always feels like I’m hitting the mark / ‘Til I go sit in the car, listen, and pick it apart / Like, ‘this s*** is garbage.'” he says in the song.
Listen to ‘Walk on Water’ below.
