I'm tryna clean up my fuckin' image so I promised the fuckin' critics
I wouldn't say fuckin' for six minutes

from Eminem (Ft. RBX & Sticky Fingaz) – Remember Me? Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Slim, you’re totally missing the point

Additional note: Obviously, if the important part of this promise was that Slim wouldn’t say the word “fuck” for six minutes, he fails to fulfill it (he says it seconds later in this same verse). However, INCREDIBLY, if you take this line as promising to avoid the construction “fucking” for six minutes, Eminem actually fulfills it to the letter

This line is delivered with about fifty seconds left of the track. Then, in “I’m Back”, the track which immediately follows this one on the album, Eminem uses the word “fuck” several times, but never uses the “fucking” construction. “I’m Back” lasts, get this, 5 minutes and 10 seconds, meaning by the end of that song, Slim has fulfilled his promise not to say “fucking” and is free to use it with impunity, as he does early on in the following track, “Marshall Mathers.”.

This kind of insane, obscure brilliance in lyrical craft and song-writing is uniquely Eminem
