Then you wonder how can kids eat up these albums like Valiums

from Eminem – The Real Slim Shady Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Much of this album, The Marshall Mathers LP, was concerned with the effect of Em’s music on children and his status as a role model. This was also something he dealt with on his first album — as was his obsession with prescription drugs. The CD art on The Slim Shady LP features a personified Vicodin.

Valium is anti-anxiety medication, and a popular drug to use among youth. It is implied that kids use Em’s music to escape their existential dilemmas.
