  • Lyrics
  • Beginning with snippets of sensationalist TV reports about Eminem, this five minute burst of horror rap finds the Detroit MC revisiting the haunting memories of being bullied in school. He then shoots to the present, where he boasts about how a single white MC has had so much influence on the hip-hop/rap industry.

    Eminem previously discussed his problems with school bullies on The Slim Shady LP track, "Brain Damage," another song where he raps about having no brain.
