I recommend going to rap.genius.com and looking at their breakdown of the Eminem lyrics. (You can click here) Their breakdown of lyrics are usually fantastically done.
I personally just feel like Eminem is constantly going back and forth between “Should I continue rapping? Do they still think I’m relevant? Am I relevant?" to thinking "Of course I’m relevant man. This is what I love to do, I can’t do anything else. There are so many people that feel the same way I do/did. I’m here for them." There’s just alot of self-doubt currently in his life (I think) And I feel like this song is showcasing those feelings he’s been having.
ITS OFFICIAL, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.
Shady Nation reacts to the news of SHADYXV
In Summary: Based on this small group of reactions, Eminem is responsible for several cardiac arrests world wide with the news of his new album release.
Opinion on lyrics: They’re emotional. They made me emotional. I cried like a little bitch to be quite honest with you guys.
Thoughts on Em retiring: He’s going to retire. He can’t keep rapping forever. The question should be: When do you think Em is going to retire? And the answer to that question is unknown. There have been rumours that he’s going to retire every 6 months for the past 5ish years. Take for example when the Marshall Mathers LP2 came out. The retirement rumours were EVERYWHERE. Fast forward a year, and he’s coming out with a new album with 2 CD’s, and doing all this touring/tweeting/updating/social media stuff (which is great to see)!
So maybe he’ll retire at the end of the year. Maybe he’ll retire 5, 10, hell, even 20 years from now. We just don’t know, and we shouldn’t focus on that. Just enjoy the time now, and embrace every new and fresh rhyme he spits. With that being said, even if he ‘retires’, he’ll most definitely be producing and doing guest features on tracks. Like he said, this is what he loves to do.
TLDR; He’s going to retire. Don’t know when. Don’t know why. Embrace and love him now, and don’t think about a future without the Rap God rhyming.
The blog will be starting some (hopefully incredible) changes tomorrow; with more posts and (again, hopefully) more frequent updates.
Thank you everyone who’s been following this blog from the beginning, and thank you to the new comers. We wouldn’t be here without you guys.
Chronicles: 50 Cent - Respect For Eminem
"The one Grammy I have is for Crack a Bottle. I couldn’t even have that without Em. You know, that’s why I have so much value for him not just in my career, just in my life. He’s the guy that… He’s one of my best friend because I can trust that he’s gonna be honest with his constructive criticism."

50 Cent Says Jay Z Can’t Compare To Eminem, “Hip Hop Is Black Music”
50 Cent says that Eminem is one of his best friends and that the Detroit rapper’s talent makes some people uncomfortable.
"Hip Hop is Black music, without question, and, unfortunately for some people, it’s tough to accept that you have a White artist that does it better than Black artists,” 50 Cent says during an interview with Music Choice. “It is what it is. You can get like whoever you think is the best Black artist and stand them face-to-face in a room with Em and he will eat that [guy] alive. Right now if you had ‘em prepare themselves, whatever way they would have to prepare themselves to come battle…I bet what I have, everything” that Eminem would win.
