    Eminem Quits Drugs And Misogyny, Cleans Up For His Family

    “Just Lose It” (2004) showcases Eminem at his best as an off-the-rails rockstar. The introduction sounds as spooky as if the devil who literally lives on Eminem’s back is rapping the lyrics, “Guess who’s back, back again?/Shady’s back, tell a friend!”

    Some Eminem songs like “Evil Deeds” (2004) and “Kill You” (2000) affirm the “Macho Paradox”. Eminem is so scary that no one should ever love him. In reality, it requires he use all of his strength to pull himself out of his drug addiction and all of the negative self-talk he describes experiencing in “Deja Vu” (2009) if he hopes to ever be seen as the man of his family in the same light ever again. This internal battle is reminiscent of 2Pac’s “Keep Ya Head Up”.

    “It’s gonna take the man in me/To conquer this insanity!”

    Because of the timing of their release, songs like “Crack a Bottle” (2009) impacted the culture in which his daughter(s) grew up. “Who’s got the r*bbers?/I noticed there’s so many of them, and there’s really not that many of us!”

    Then, Eminem “wholeheartedly” apologized to Rihanna on “Zeus” (2019) for leaked song lyrics that were written while Mathers was re-learning how to rap while recovering from his near-fatal overdose.

    “For that song that leaked, I’m sorry, Ri’/It wasn’t meant to cause you grief/Regardless, it was wrong of me.”

    Moreover, in “Drug Ballad” (2000) Eminem speaks to the cyclical nature of generational curses like alcoholism.

    “But when it’s all said and done I’ll be 40/Before I know it with a 40 on the porch telling stories/With a bottle of Jack/Two grandkids in my lap/Babysitting for Hailie while Hailie’s out getting smashed!”

    In 2022, Eminem’s dark prophesies are unfounded, and he and his children are instead invested in self-fulfillment. Hailie Jade is a college-graduate and Eminem’s youngest child has come out as non-binary and changed their name to Stevie Laine.
