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.

Ook op zijn volgende album, Music To Be Murdered By, werkt hij samen met Ed Sheeran. Eminem dropt het album in januari 2020 als grote verrassing met daarop ook een samenwerking met de overleden rapper Juice Wrld, Godzilla. De eerste single van het album wordt Darkness. Aan het einde van het jaar krijgt het album een vervolg met Music to Be Murdered By – Side B waarvan Gnat de populairste track wordt.


Ugh, you're a monster

I can swallow a
Bottle of
Alcohol and I'll
Feel like Godzilla
Better hit the deck
Like the card dealer
My whole squad's in here
Walking around the party
A cross between a zombie
Apocalypse and B-Bobby The
Brain Heenan which is probably the
Same reason I wrestle with mania
Shady's in this bitch, I'm posse'd up
Consider it to cross me a costly mistake
If they sleepin' on me, the
Hoes better get insomnia
ADHD, Hydroxycut
Pass the Courvoisier (Aye, aye)

In AA with an AK, melee'
'finna set it like a play date
Better vacate
Retreat like a vaca, mayday (Hey)
This beat is cray-cray, Ray J
Laughing all the way to the bank
I spray flames
They cannot tame or placate the

You get in my way
I'ma feed you to the
Monster (Yeah)
I'm normal during the day
But at night turn to a
Monster (Yeah)
When the moon shines
Like Ice Road Truckers
I look like a villain
Outta those blockbusters
Godzilla, fire spitter, monster
Blood on the dance floor
And Louis V carpet
Fire, Godzilla, fire, monster
Blood on the dance floor
And Louis V carpet

I'm just a product
Of Slick Rick and Onyx
Told 'em: lick the balls
Had 'em just appalled
Did so many things that pissed 'em off
It's impossible to list 'em all
And in the midst of all this
I'm in a mental hospital
With a crystal ball
Tryin' to see, will I still be like this tomorrow
Risperdal, voices whisper
My fist is balled
Back up against the wall
Pencil drawn
This is just the song
To go ballistic on
You just pulled a pistol on
A guy with a missile launcher
I'm just a Loch Ness
The mythological
Quick to tell a bitch: screw off
Like a fifth of vodka
When you twist the top of the bottle, I'm a

You get in my way
I'ma feed you to the
Monster (Yeah)
I'm normal during the day
But at night turn to a
Monster (Yeah)
When the moon shines
Like Ice Road Truckers
I look like a villain
Outta those blockbusters
Godzilla, fire spitter, monster
Blood on the dance floor
And Louis V carpet
Fire, Godzilla, fire, monster
Blood on the dance floor
And Louis V carpet

If you never gave a damn (Ayy)
Raise your hand
Cause I'm about to set trip
Vacation plans
I'm on point like my index is
So all you will ever get is
The motherfuckin' finger (Finger)
Prostate exam ('xam)
How can I have all these fans and perspire
Like a liar's pants I'm on fire
And I got no plans to retire
And I'm still the man you admire
These chicks are spazzin' out
I only get more handsome and flyer
I got 'em passin' out like
What you do when you hand someone flyers
And what goes around comes around
Just like the blades on the chainsaw
Cause I caught the flack
But my dollars stacked
Right off the bat like a baseball
Like Kid Ink, bitch
I got them racks with so much ease
That they call me Diddy
Cause I make bands
And I call getting cheese a cakewalk (Cheesecake, yeah)
Bitch, I'm a player
I'm too motherfuckin' stingy for Cher
Won't even lend you an ear
Ain't even pretending to care
But I tell a bitch I'll marry her
If she'll bury her
Face in my genital area
The original Richard Ramirez
Cristhian Rivera
Cause my lyrics never sit well
So they wanna give me the chair
Like a paraplegic and it's scary
Call it Hari Kari
Cause every Tom and Dick and Harry
Carry a Merriam motherfuckin' dictionary
On 'em, swearing up and down
They can spit, this shit's hilarious
It's time to put these bitches
In the obituary column
We wouldn't see eye to eye
With a staring problem
Get the shaft like a steering column (Monster)

Trigger happy, pack heat
But it's black ink
Evil half of the Bad Meets Evil
That means: take a back seat
Take it back to Fat Beats
With a maxi single
Look at my rap sheet
What attracts these people
Is my Gangsta Bitch like Apache
With a catchy jingle
I stack chips
You barely got a half-eaten Cheeto

Fill 'em with the venom
And eliminate 'em
Other words, I Minute Maid 'em
I don't wanna hurt 'em
But I did, I'm in a fit of rage
I'm murderin' again, nobody will evade
I'm fittin' to kill 'em
And dumpin' their fuckin' bodies in the lake
Obliterating everything
Incinerate a renegade
I'm here to make anybody
Who want it with the pen afraid
But don't nobody want it
But they're gonna get it anyway
Cause I'm beginnin' to feel
Like I'm mentally ill
I'm Attila, kill or be killed
I'm a killer bee, the vanilla gorilla
You're bringin' the killer within me outta me
You don't wanna be the enemy
Of the demon who entered me
Or be on the receivin' end of me
What stupidity it'd be
Every bit of me's the epitome of a spitter
When I'm in the vicinity
Motherfucker, you better duck
Or you 'finna be dead
The minute you run into me
A hundred percent of you
Is a fifth of a percent of me
I'm 'bout to fuckin' finish you
Bitch, I'm unfadable
You wanna battle
I'm available
I'm blown up
Like an inflatable
I'm undebatable
I'm unavoidable
I'm unevadable
I'm on the toilet bowl
I got a trailer full of money
And I'm paid in full
I'm not afraid to pull a ...

Man, stop
Look what I'm plannin', haha
