Another more rap-related opinion from Skip on the show.
Eminem even went as far as saying he hated “My Name Is”, because it was the song most people knew him for, even though it wasn’t a good representation of him as an artist. He told the media that his next album The Marshall Mathers LP, which this song came off, wasn’t going to be like that.
“One thing I won’t do is put out another song like ‘My Name Is’. I can’t stand that fucking song. This album is rawer. Fans looking for bubblegum rap aren’t going to get it here.”
Neither Biggie or Swift are interested in paying after sleeping with the girl.
Blow my buzz refers to when someone is enjoying their high and someone tries to be serious with them when they just want to chill.
Pet Shop Boys made a song called The Night I Fell In Love, in which a fictional gay teenager sneaks backstage and has sex with a rapper. They don’t mention Em’s name, but it is implied since they talk about Stan in the song. One of the members is openly gay, the other one will neither confirm or deny it. Whether the two were gay or not, Eminem won’t let a track like that happen without getting even.
Further evidence that he really could rhymes Slim Shady with many things
Bun B doesn’t write down his lyrics on paper (like Eminem), or keep them in his head) like Jay-Z, he keeps them in his phone so he can always access it. This rubbed off on Wiz Khalifa
“I quit writing a long time ago. I stopped physically writing it down or putting it in my BlackBerry or iPhone.”
The only wrong way you can go on a one-way street is backwards, so he says the only bad decision you can make is to not keep moving on.
This song doesn’t even make the standard version of Lasers because it didn’t perform as well as expected as a single. It only made the deluxe edition, despite being lyrically superior to most, if not every track that made the final cut.
If Eminem never got famous through Slim Shady, he never would have brought his group D12 with him. Proof was his best friend and a member of D12. Without Eminem, the group wouldn’t have much mainstream success, so it is unlikely Proof would be spending much time in night clubs and betting money. Both of those causes led to Proof getting shot over a game of pool, which Eminem blames on himself.
