Recently, Lorde shed some light on her musical influences by naming her favorite artists for MTV. The list included Grimes, Four Tet, James Blake, Drake, and a few others who influence the young singer.

    Relapse is Tylers favourite album? Relapse was horrific

  • @MickeyKnox

    Relapse is great lyrically, and has some bangin beats. Now the concept was all over the place. MMLP 2 is also but is now considered his best work, so Tyler is not too off here.

    funny how Mariah Carey is Nicki Minaj’s favorite artist but Mariah can’t stand her

  • epaldi

    Relapse was brilliant, people are forgetting how lyrically amazing it was because the accent was annoying. Beats were also fire. Em displayed some of the most hardcore shit he ever put out (Stay Wide Awake, Deja Vu, Elevator, Insane, My Darling, Underground and more). I also find the concept to be really refreshing and interesting, it was really something different, yet again – the accent made the record less fun listening to.

    Hahahaha dude youre on crack MMLP2 is garbage. Nowhere near Em’s best whatsoever. You shouldn’t even be allowed to listen to Eminem if you think MMLP2 is his best work.

  • @MickeyKnox

    That’s not what I was trying to say…I feel like you. MMLP2 is bullish the point I was trying to get across was people say Relapse was his worse so…how is MMLp2 is his best? I personally don’t think either is his best.
