Than you'd wanna fuck me up for saying the word *****
Since he’s a white rapper, Eminem is famously “not allowed” to say the N-word, a point he acknowledges here by hinting at (but not saying) the word.
Despite this, some (black) rappers have come out in support of Eminem being given permission to use the word. On his song “Be A Nigger Too”, Nas says Eminem is allowed to say it, “cause he my nigga”
Eminem also used the N-word on a old tape. When In a desperate attempt to paint Eminem as a racist, The Source founders Benzino and Dave Mays emerged with a tape that caught a 17-year old Marshall Mathers using the N-word. On one of the songs from the 1988 tape, an amateurish Eminem spewed hateful venom at black women: “All the girls I like to bone have big butts/No they don’t, ‘cause I don’t like that nigger shit/I’m just here to make a bigger hit.”
Eminem later explained that he wrote the song out of anger, having gone through a nasty break-up with his black girlfriend. He apologized and took the time to detail the entire saga on “Yellow Brick Road”.
