Eminem Ft. Dr. Dre - "Old Time's Sake" Audio (DECENT?)

I actually kind of like this track but it's more for the beat than Eminem's lyrics.  Dre actually switched his style up for once which was cool but Em is still using that corny, F'd up accent thing like he is a 10 year old talking about poop and farts.  I think he's been hanging out with his daughter too much on his time off because he can't even rap normal anymore.  I don't know WTF is going on.

It's actually starting to piss me off now and it's almost sad.  I was looking forward to the new Relapse album but I am seriously contemplating whether or not to actually buy it now.  Every song I have heard so far has been average at best (except for maybe "Crack a Bottle") and any that had potential have been ruined with Em's awful accent/flow thing.

Even the lyrics have been subpar or just plain boring.  I don't understand what the hell is going on with this dude.  It's watching one of your favorite athletes deteriorate in front of your eyes at a rapid pace and there is nothing you can do to stop it.  You just hope they can snap out of it at some point or at least have one or two good seasons before all is said and done.

Actually, it's a lot like what is happening right now to David Ortiz with the Red Sox this season.  He hasn't even hit a Home Run yet this season and his power is almost non-existent.  He looks like a 40 year old past his prime even though he is supposedly only 34 and should still have a few good years left (just like Eminem).

Damn.  I better stop writing  about this before I get even more depressed.

UPDATE:  It seems like I'm not the only one questioning the whole accent thing.  Tim Westwood from the UK recently interviewed Eminem and asked him about it.  Em seems to know he's doing it but claims it's subconscious and doesn't know where it's coming from.  I think he needs to find out so he can get rid of it ASAP.
