CD vs. Radio

CD VS. RADIO….Matt Yglesias informs the New York Review of Books about the difference between Eminem lyrics on the CD and Eminem lyrics on the radio. I’ll confess I didn’t realize how much his stuff got bowdlerized for the airwaves.

Anyway, doesn’t caving in to the radio gods like this hurt his street cred? Or is it already shredded because he makes Wal-Mart versions of his CDs and shills for Coca Cola on TV?

It’s hard to keep up with this stuff.
