I personally don't like the way the "new eminem" sound. Like he said he sounds like a robot. His old stuff just had more heart. He would say things without biting his tounge. Even though he would exaggerate a lot, it was fun you know. When it was time to get serious, he could do that as well with songs like "Sing for the moment". But to answer your question, yes he is still relevant, but not his recent music. His catalog speaks for itself. I'm sure all his albums went platinum. He was the first white %*@#*& to do it on such a big scale. White rappers like Macklemore and Iggy are getting their, but you can't compare them to Eminem, not yet. I compare EM to 2pac, Big, JayZ. To have so much heart and soul in your music, it will resignate with anyone, making them Superstars.
