Am I just product of pop fizzing up?
For shizzle my wizzle, this is the plot, listen up
Eminem paraphrases Snoop’s -izzle (“wizzle” instead of “nizzle”, since Eminem is forbidden from using even the -izzle version of the N-word) as a symbol of pop-rap crossoverism
In this line, Em is just saying “is it a miracle that I was successful, or a perfectly normal and logical cause / effect?” Pop fizzing up is not a miracle, it’s a normal occurrence because soda is fizzy.
He could also be reflecting on the brief nature of pop stardom; soda fizz is composed of bubbles which disappear into thin air once they reach the top.
Eminem tries to avoid pop music — to no avail
Em is reflecting on whether his success was caused by a miracle or by the decline of the pop music genre, i.e. “pop fizzing up”. Artists like N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, dominated the mainstream airwaves for years until the early 2000s when hip hop and R&B took over mainstream music. This shift coincided with the 1999 release of Eminem’s “Slim Shady LP” and his subsequent rise to fame.
