25 to Life by Eminem

Album: RecoveryReleased: 2010Charted:
92
  • On this mellow track Eminem compares his hip-hop career to torn relationships, detailing how his devotion to music and the resulting fame has affected his ability to relate to women.
  • The song was produced by DJ Khalil and features the vocals of Liz Rodrigues, who is a member of the producer's group. The Toronto-based singer also appears on the Recovery track, "Almost Famous."
  • Eminem explained this song's meaning to Vibe magazine: "What the whole song is saying is that I have a strange relationship with hip-hop because I love it so much. I go through this thing in my head a lot, which I'm sure every rapper does, where you give your life to this thing. You literally give everything that you got. I come to work some days wearing the same thing two days in a row—baggy sweats—just dedicating my life to this. And there are times that I feel like I get the respect that I deserve and there are times where I feel like I don't."
