In hiphop, a good way to market yourself is as a character people (better, authorities) want to take down. It makes your story intriguing: why is everyone against so-and-so? According to generally fired-up Detroit rapper Trick Trick, he's on trial and could spend his life in prison for a multiple homicide he only witnessed. Not a bad tale, and a rap album with a murder-trial motif is way less clichéd than a rap album with a radio station theme. What's weird is that after the intro and first song address the only interesting concept on the album, Eminem arrives to rap inanely about how he needs his boy Trick Trick's protection in the club, and from there they not only derail, but abandon the whole trial idea. The rest of the record is characterized by increasingly pissed mouthing-off. Trick's voice even sounds threatening when he's telling his woman he wants to see her smile. Not such a strong case.
