* MagnumOpus: Eminem has two: "Stan" and "Lose Yourself". They're his most critically acclaimed songs, with the former regularly appearing on "Greatest ____ Songs Lists" and the latter won him an Academy Award. ** If we're talking about whole albums, ''Music/TheMarshallMathersLP'' is considered his best.

* VindicatedByHistory: Opinions on ''Relapse'' have become less negative over the years, and today many consider it better than ''Recovery'' and ''[=MMLP2=]'' (and obviously, better than ''Encore''). Ironic as the album was subject to CreatorBacklash soon after it came out.

* VindicatedByHistory: VindicatedByHistory: ** While it was mocked for its heavy inspiration from NAS' style and its sales were non-existent, people who listen to ''Millenium'' nowadays find itů really not that bad at all. ** Opinions on ''Relapse'' have become less negative over the years, and today many consider it better than ''Recovery'' and ''[=MMLP2=]'' (and obviously, better than ''Encore''). Ironic as the album was subject to CreatorBacklash soon after it came out.

Don't link to the Sugar Wiki on the main wiki
** He commonly overshadows other artists such as Music/{{Rihanna}}, Music/LilWayne, Music/NickiMinaj and even Music/JayZ (whether Em was actually better on Renegade than Hov can be debated, but the reviews said Em's verse was superior) when collaborating with them. Hell, he outshone Music/KanyeWest, Lil Wayne and Music/{{Drake}} all on one song, [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Forever]], Shady was indeed back.

* HypeBacklash: "Recovery" was hailed by fans and media as a return to form when it came out, but now it's considered among Em's weakest albums; "still better than "Recovery"" was heard from many ''[=MMLP2=]'' reviewers in 2013.

** Much of his post-''8 Mile'' work has gotten this reaction. Either Eminem's drug addiction completely destroyed his ability to make good music, he goes for technical skill at the expense of good songwriting, his music sounds corny and he has nothing new to say anymore, or he has continued to put out good music from his comeback onwards. The perceived LighterAndSofter tone of ''Recovery'' and his tendency to work with singers like Music/{{Rihanna}} have also been very divisive.

** There are several nods to {{Music/Amy Winehouse}} in "We Made You" that are really hard to listen to after the latter's death.

* DudeNotFunny: ** Music/MichaelJackson did not take well towards Eminem making fun of him in his ''Just Lose It'' music video. The backlash even resulted in B.E.T. pulling the video from airwaves. ** ''Ass Like That,'' in which Em pretends to be Triumph The Insult Comic Dog and imagines him committing several sexual offenses, most of them involving minors.

* MisaimedFandom[=/=]ComicallyMissingThePoint: "Stan" has become a term to describe [[ImYourBiggestFan sick, obsessed fans]]... and Eminem's fandom.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Many of Eminem's guest verses on songs have helped make them more popular, such as "I Need A Doctor" by Skylar Grey or "Smack That" by Akon. Inversely, two of his songs only became hits because of Music/{{Rihanna}}.
