Mom, I love you but this trailer's got to go

from Eminem – Lose Yourself Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

His father abandoned the family when he was 18 months old, and he was raised solely by his mother in poverty. “Trailer” is a metaphor for poverty and he wants to escape it.

Even though he did live in trailer parks from time to time, Eminem is not a trailer park kid. In the movie too, Jimmy only moved in with his mom because his girlfriend broke up with him and he didnt have a place to stay.
