I Am Moved by the Camaraderie of Rappers

I'm not sure if you know that I love Eminem. I do. It's problematic because I don't listen to big swear music. The song below is edited. I enjoy it. 

I really love the camaraderie of rappers. It sometimes even moves me to cry, as is the case with the song below.

I like the dogged perseverance of underprivileged people like Eminem who become successful. It's one of my favorite things. And I love it when they are all, "In your face, haters." Or, in this case:

I love it when I tell em shove it
Cause it wasn't that long ago when Marshall sat, flustered lack lustered
Cause he couldn't cut mustard, muster up, nothing
Brain fuzzy, cause he's buzzin', woke up from that buzzin'
Now you wonder why he does it, how he does it
Wasn't cause he had buzzards circlin' around his head
Waiting for him to drop dead, was it?

Bad Meets Evil is a group comprised of Eminem and Royce da 5'9. They sing with Bruno Mars in this song. I'm not a huge Bruno Mars fan, but he was funny on SNL, so that's good.

I think it's interesting when people are fueled by hatred. Not good, necessarily, but interesting. I nursed a lot of low-level hatred when I was a kid. I kept track of who I hated and why. It was like a hobby. Nothing like Eminem, though. I still initially hate a lot of people and things but I get over hating them much sooner. I've gone soft.

I wanna just say thanks cause your hate is what gave me the strength.
So let em bics raise cause I came with 5'9" but I feel like I'm 6'8″!



  1. I have a guilty love for Eminem ... especially his song with Rihanna all about domestic violence (I tell myself it's a cautionary tale of regret and not a romanticization).

  2. And who can forget his song Lose Yourself in which he describes feeling so nervous to go on stage in the "rap off" that he throws up on himself. Mom's spaghetti. Yep. I won't call him Slim Shady, though. I am not hip enough to pull that off. This kind of reminds me of that line of Kurt Cobain's where he says he would kill himself if he found out soccer moms were playing his music in their mini vans. MM would probably prefer 20 year old fans. Oh, well!!
