There was a battle between Everlast and Eminem some years back. Who won? We all share the victory in these kinds of fights, because you can see yourself in the mirror of all events. However, Everlast was older and wiser. His points are generally solid, aside from the homophobia. When you appeal to the emotions of the herd and try to find glory in popularity – almost by default, you lose. Seeking protection in popularity? You lose by definition. That’s not to say popularity is always wrong, but basically, being real is more important than being liked. The most sought after commodity in society: attention.
