I miss when Eminem dominated the MTV Video Music Awards. Each time he would accept an award, you had Moby talking crap, you had the camera showing the faces of all the pop stars he dissed, it was great. When 50 was involved there was always drama and these guys wouldn't back down. Now you have Lil Wayne, "How to Love"? Give me a break. He is officially, just like Drake and Nicki, a Pop Artist who occasionally raps. haha jeez.
