Rainy Days
by Boogie (featuring Eminem)

Album: Everything's for Sale (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • Anthony Dixson is a hip-hop artist from Compton, California, who records under the name of Boogie. He signed to Shady Records/Interscope in 2017 and this is a track from his debut album.
  • The song features a guest verse by Boogie's Shady Records boss Eminem, who shares his thoughts on his hip-hop legacy after releasing Kamikaze in 2018.

    I promise not to cry crocodile tears
    If you end up shocked at my lyrics (Shocked at my lyrics)
    Marshall is dead in the water, but not that I care
    Dre said, "Rock the boat" and the Doc is my peer
    So, it's unanimous, you're at attention, the planet's listenin'


    Eminem's producer Dr. Dre encouraged him to cause a disturbance following the negative response to Revival in 2017. With Kamikaze, Em certainly did "rock the boat" with his controversial lyrics dissing his detractors, including a homophobic slur directed at Tyler, the Creator. Slim Shady did get "the planet listenin'" and Kamikaze was the best selling album of 2018.
