And I don't know who the fuck you think you talkin to
But I'm not him, aight Slim? So watch what you do
Because of the “Slim” word, this line has been bringing confusion to some hip-hop listeners. It’s often interpreted as a diss to Eminem, who has an alter ego named Slim Shady. If you stop to think about it, it actually makes sense because …And Then There Was X was released in 1999, year when Eminem was at the top of the music industry with his classic hip-hop album The Slim Shady LP.
However, this is wrong — “Slim” in this case is just being used as a generic name for whoever X is warning to be careful.
DMX and Eminem never had any known feud or anything close to a beef. Quite the opposite. They’ve even made a diss called Go To Sleep, also featuring Obie Trice, for Ja Rule.
