Here -- tell these people something they dont know about me
Eminem (ok, “B. Rabbit”) has flipped the script in a fairly ingenious way. Understanding that the shambles of his personal life and his weak crew makes him an easy target for a battle emcee like Papa Doc, he preempts him by calling himself out and “owning” his weaknesses. Having laid bare his many failures in public while maintaining his defiance, he leaves his opponent with nothing to say. And indeed, Papa Doc finds he has nothing to say (like B. Rabbit in the opening scene) and drops the mic.
