But it backfired, I was supposed to dump her
But she dumped me for this black guy

from Eminem – Yellow Brick Road Lyrics on Rap Genius


And this is the act that led to “Foolish Pride”. Em was obviously pissed off at this, and it couldn’t have helped that she left him for a black guy too. Add this all together and it equals a pissed off teenager messing around in the booth and making a track he’d live to regret.
