Earlier this week, Drake dropped his eagerly anticipated second album, ‘Take Care’. While Drizzy is hoping for high sale figures, R&B diva Syleena Johnson believes that ‘Take Care’ is some way behind Eminem’s diamond-certified sophomore album, ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’…

She told SOHH: “If I had to choose a favourite sophomore album, I would say Eminem’s second album was my favourite of his. ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ was off the chain.”

Syleena also reserved special praise for Em’s ability to tell stories and to entertain listeners with his witty lyrics: “A lot of people like to get into the deep and conscious rappers. Talib Kweli, Mos DefNas and Jay-Z might get real deep on you, and that’s my boy, I like Jay-Z, but Eminem? He can do all of those elements and he can entertain you at the same time.

“He can be fun, funny, deep, he’s cold. He can do all of those things. He’s not rapping about bling and girls and stuff like that. Everybody does stuff like that. He can really tell a story. I love me some Eminem.”
