But don't be me, cause if you grow up and you go and O.D
They're gonna come for me and I'mma have to grow a goatee
And get a disguise and hide, cause it'll be my fault
So don't do drugs, and do exactly as I don't
Cause I'm bad for you
Slim does drugs, but he’s telling kids not to copy him.
This song replaces Kim on the clean version of the Marshall Mathers LP aimed at kids
At the end of every verse after talking about a certain drug he always says “It’s bad for you” and now here he’s saying “I’m bad for you”. Slim Shady character is bad for you and bad for himself.
Possible reference to The Slim Shady LP My Fault which is based on the overdose of magic mushrooms. It’s also a storytelling track.
