Part 1 – I’m just relaying what the voice in my head’s saying. Don’t shoot the messenger.
There’s Slim Shady, Eminem, and Marshall Mathers, three persons in one rap god.
Part 2 – How many records you expecting to sell after your second LP sends you directly to jail?
Eminem’s early music feels like a vital window into this radically different free speech debate of the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Part 3 – Though I’m not the first king of controversy, I am the worst thing since Elvis Presley.
Nobody embodies the white rapper in popular imagination quite like Eminem.
Part 4 – I’m a piece of fucking white trash, I say it proudly.
Watched in the context of his discography, 8 Mile feels less like a film about Eminem, the person, than about the environment that birthed him, that permeates his music.
