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

Now this shit's about to kick off
This party looks wack
Let's take it back to straight hip-hop
And start it from scratch
I'm 'bout to bloody this track up
Everybody get back
That's why my pen needs a pad
Cause my rhymes on the ra-hag
Just like I did with addiction
I'm 'bout to kick it
Like a magician
Critics I turn to crickets
Got 'em still on the fence
Ready to pick it
But quick to get impaled
When I tell 'em: stick it
So sick I'm looking pale
Well, that's my pigment
'bout to go ham, ya bish
Shout out to Kendrick
Let's bring it back
To that vintage Slim, bitch!
The art of the MCing
Mixed with Da Vinci
And MC Ren
And I don't mean Stimpy's friend, bitch
Been Public Enemy
Since you thought PE was gym, bitch

Take your shoes off
Let your hair down
And go berserk
All night long
Grow your beard out
Just weird out
And go berserk
All night long

We're gonna rock this house
Until we knock it down
So turn the volume loud
Cause it's mayhem 'til the a.m.
So baby, make
Just like K-Fed
And let yourself go
Let yourself go
I'mma say: fuck it
Before we kick the bucket
Life's too short
To not go for broke
So everybody
Everybody
Go berserk
Grab your vile, yeah

Guess it's just the way that I'm dressed
Ain't it
Khakis pressed, Nike shoes just being fresh laced
So I guess it ain't
Dead after shave of Cologne
That made him just faint
Plus I just showed up
With a coat fresher than wet paint
Sweet love is a chess game
check mate
But girl, your body's banging
Jump me in, bang bang
Yessiree, Bob
I was thinking the same thing
So come get on this kids rock
Baw wit da baw, dang dang
Pow p-p-p-pow pow
Chicka bow, chicka wow wow
Catch a cab, I wanna go down
B-b-bow bow
Let's slow it down
Throw in the towel, t-t-towel towel
Low it down
I don't know how, h-h-how how
At least I know that I don't know
Question is are you bozos
Smart enough to feel stupid
Hope so, now ho

Take your shoes off
Let your hair down
And go berserk
All night long
Grow your beard out
Just weird out
And go berserk
All night long

We're gonna rock this house
Until we knock it down
So turn the volume loud
Cause it's mayhem 'til the a.m.
So crank the bass up
Like crazy
And let yourself go
Let yourself go
I'mma say: fuck it
Before we kick the bucket
Life's too short
To not go for broke
So everybody
Everybody
Go berserk
Grab your vile

Everyobdy
Everyobdy

They say that love is powerful
As cough syrup and Styrofoam
All I know is I fell asleep
And woke up in that Monte Carlo
With the ugly Kardashian
Lamar, oh sorry yo
We done both
Set the bar low
As far as hard drugs are
Though that's the past
But I done did enough codeine
To knock Future into tomorrow
And girl
I ain't got no money to borrow
But I am tryin' to find a way
To get you alone, car note
Oh, Marshall Mathers
Shouldn’t everybody know
Get the bar soap lathered
Kangols and Carhartt-less Cargos
Girl, you’re fixin' to get your heart broke
Don’t be absurd man
You bird brained baby
I ain’t called anybody baby since Birdman
Unless you’re a swallow
Word, Rick, word, man, you heard
But don’t be discouraged, girl
This is your jam
Unless you got toe jam

Take your shoes off
Let your hair down
And go berserk
All night long
Grow your beard out
Just weird out
And go berserk
All night long

We're gonna rock this house
Until we knock it down
So turn the volume loud
Cause it's mayhem 'til the a.m.
So baby, make
Just like K-Fed
And let yourself go
Let yourself go
I'mma say: fuck it
Before we kick the bucket
Life's too short
To not go for broke
So everybody
Everybody
Go berserk
Grab your vile, yeah

We're gonna rock this house
Until we knock it down
So turn the volume loud
Cause it's mayhem 'til the a.m.
So crank the bass up
Like crazy
And let yourself go
Let yourself go
I'mma say: fuck it
Before we kick the bucket
Life's too short
To not go for broke
So everybody
Everybody
Go berserk
Grab your vile
