So as I got older and I got a lot taller
My dick shrunk smaller, but my balls got larger
Eminem’s poor upbringing really became an issue once he hit puberty and transitioned into an angry teenager. This is when he first got into hip-hop and finally discovered an outlet through which he could vent some of his rage at the outside world. Em uses the small dick but big balls line on the previous song as well, to imply that he isn’t as much of a “dick” (asshole) as people think, he is just “ballsy” enough to say what he thinks without fearing any backlash.
