Marschall Bruce Mathers III werd in zijn jeugd geïnspireerd door LL Cool J en de Beasty Boys. Soul Intent verschijnt als eerste, zeer beperkt verkrijgbare, release. In 1996 is Infinite zijn eerste album, maar echt succes volgt pas als hij de steun van Dr. Dre krijgt.

Het album The Slim Shady LP wordt dan ook zijn echte doorbraak. In de Top 40 bereiken Hi! My Name Is Slim Shady en Guilty Conscience (samen met Dr. Dre) de Top 40. In 2000 verschijnt het album The Marshall Mathers LP, waarvan Stan de tweede plaats in de Top 40 bereikt. De rapper scoort later met Without Me en Lose Yourself twee nummer 1-hits.

Na Love The Way You Lie (#4), dat hij in 2010 samen met Rihanna tot een hit maakt, wordt het stil rond Eminem.

In 2013 verschijnt The Marshall Mathers LP2, het achtste studioalbum van Eminem. Ook is hij opnieuw te horen in een samenwerking met Rihanna. The Monster is zijn 21e hit in de Top 40 en wordt een dusdanig succes dat hij elf jaar na dato zijn beste resultaat (Lose Yourself uit 2003) overtreft. Op het album staat onder meer Headlights (met Nate Ruess) en Guts Over Fear (met Sia).

In 2017 maakt hij met P!nk voor haar album Beautiful Trauma de track Revenge. Nog geen maand later komt de rapper ook zelf met een nummer, Walk On Water, waar hij Beyoncé voor wist te strikken om de vocalen voor haar rekening te nemen. Op 15 december verschijnt met Revival zijn negende album. River, een samenwerking met Ed Sheeran, wordt Alarmschijf.


Songtekst

I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water
Feel it washing over me
Oh, little one
I don't want to admit to something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth in my lies right now
Are falling like the rain
So let the river run

He's coming home with his neck scratched
To catch flack
Sweat jackets and dress slacks
Mismatch
On his breath's Jack
Is a sex addict
And she just wants to exact revenge
And get back
It's a chess match
She's on his back like a jet pack
She's kept track
Of all his internet chats
And guess who just happens
To be moving on to the next
Actually, just shit on my last chick
And she has what my ex lacks
Cause she loves danger
Psychopath
And you don't fuck with no man's girl
Even I know that
But she's devised some plan
To stab him in the back
Knife in hand
Says the relationship's hanging by a strand
So she's been on the web lately
Says maybe she'll be my Gwen Stacy
To spite her man
And I know she's using me
To try to play him
I don't care, hi Susanne
But I should have said: bye Susanne
After the first night
But tonight I am

I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water
Feel it washing over me
Oh, little one
I don't want to admit to something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth in my lies right now
Are falling like the rain
So let the river run

One night stand
Turned into night staying
He was calling so might scram
Now we hug tight and

He found out
Now she feels deserted and used
Cause he left, so what
He did it first to her too
Now how am I supposed
To tell this girl that we're through
It's hard to find the words
I'm aloof, nervous, ensued
And witnessed you hurt
But what you deserve is the truth
Don't take it personal
I just can't say this in person to you
So I revert to the studio
Like hole in the wall diners
Don't have to be reserved in a booth
I just feel like the person
Who I'm turning into's
Irreversible, I preyed on you
Like it's church at the pew
And now that I got you I don't want you
Took advantage of my thirst to pursue
Why do I do this dirt that I do
Get on my soapbox and preach
My sermon and speech
Detergent and bleach
Is burning the wound
Cause now with her in the womb
We can't bring her in this world, should have knew
To use protection 'fore I bit into your forbidden fruit
Fuck

I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water
Feel it washing over me
Oh, little one
I don't want to admit to something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth in my lies right now
Are falling like the rain
So let the river run

My name's (Oh)
My name's (Oh)
Denver (Oh)
River run
Call me (Oh)
Call me (Oh)
River (Oh)
We'll let the river run

Always the bridesmaid
Never the bride, hey
Fuck can I say
If life was a highway
The seat was an enclave
I'd be swerving in five lanes
Speeds at a high rate
Like I'm sliding on ice, maybe
That's why I may
Have came at you sideways
I can't keep my lies straight
What I made you terminate, my baby
This love triangle
Left us in a wreck, tangled
What else can I say
It was fun for a while
Bet I really would have loved your smile
Didn't really wanna abort
But, fuck it, what's one more lie
To tell an unborn child

I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water
Feel it washing over me
Oh, little one (I'm sorry)
I don't want to admit to something (I fucked up)
If all it's gonna cause is pain
The truth in my lies now
Are falling like the rain
So let the river run
