Eminem’s has a slender build, covered with baggy clothes, with a black hat covering his eyes. He is one of the most intense rappers to ever record in the studio. He leaves NOTHING behind, whether the album sucks (revival) or his latest album (Kamikazee), he gives it his all.
And that’s what I want you to take away from his latest album, Kamikaze, his MAX effort and the long-term benefits of this effort. The Universal Law: You get in what you put out.
If we filmed Eminem’s immediate reaction after unloading on his 3 minute tracks, he would be huffing and puffing with a full sweat.
But what has Eminem showed us about the benefits of Max Effort?
