6. He's sober
MMLP was originally slated to be called "Amsterdam," so you already know a bit about where Em's head was at during the time of that album. "Drug Ballad" and "Under The influence" made it clear, but his manic delivery and quick-to-explode sensitivity are often attributed to his rampant drug use. In recent years, some fans have wondered whether getting back on drugs would help Em's flows get back to where they used to be, but that's just fucked up. Let the man live a healthy, peaceful life with his daughter. If that means retirement, so be it. He's already given us classics.
