Say what I want to say to the kid that said that I eyeballed him

from Eminem – Legacy Lyrics on Rap Genius


He wanted to be able to vent his frustration and anger at the people who have picked on him all his life in a way that could convey what he really feels. This was a way for young Marshall to find his tool to use for revenge against those who have done him wrong.

This line also shows how rap gave Eminem the confidence in himself that he probably would’ve never found elsewhere, and the balls to stand up for himself by putting words together. He purposely reuses “eyeballed him” to link it back to the bully in the first verse.

See “Brain Damage”:

“I’m gettin you back bully
Now once and for good
