My mother reproduced like the komodo dragon

from Eminem – Rhyme or Reason Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A Komodo Dragon is one of the largest species of lizard found alive today. It is capable of reproducing asexually, which means that the female doesn’t necessarily require a male to lay eggs. Marshall talks later in the album about how his mom had to serve the role of mother and father once his dad left. Eminem takes that idea literally here.

Also, when a female komodo dragon reproduces without outside fertilization, only male descendants will hatch.
