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

[Talking]
Guess who? Did you miss me?
Jessica Simpson, sing the chorus!

[Chorus]
When you walked through the door, it was clear to me (Clear to me!)
You're the one who they adore, who they came to see (Who they came to see!)
You're a rockstar (Baby!)
Everybody wants you (Everybody wants you)
Player!
Who could really blame you? (Who could really blame you?)
We're the ones who made you!

[Verse 1]
Back by popular demand
Now pop a little Zantax or antacid if you can
You're ready to tackle any task that is at hand
How does it feel: Is it fantastic, is it grand?
Well look at all the massive masses in the stands
Shady man, no, don't massacre the fans
Damn, I think Kim Kardashian's a man
She stomped him, just 'cause he asked to put his hands
On her massive, gluteus maximus again
Squeeze it and squash it and pass it to a friend
Can he come back as nasty as he can?
Yes he can, Cam, don't ask me this again
He does not mean to lesbian offend
But Lindsay, please come back to seein' men
Samantha's a two, you're practically a ten
I know you want me girl, in fact I see ya grin
Now come in girl!

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
The enforcer, look at the more women to torture
Walk up to the cutest girl and Charlie-horse her
Sorry Portia, but what's Ellen DeGeneres
Have that I don't? Are you tellin' me tenderness?
Well I could be as gentle and as smooth as a gentleman
Give me my Ventolin inhaler and two Xenadrine
And I'll invite Sarah Palin out to dinner then
Nail her, maybe say, "Hello to my little friend"
Brit, forget K-Fed, let's cut out the middleman
Forget him or you'll end up in the hospital again
And this time it won't be for the Ritalin binge
Forget them other men, girl pay them little attention
And little did I mention that Jennifer's in love with me John Mayer, so sit on the bench
Man, I swear them other guys you give 'em an inch
They take a mile, they got style, but it isn't Slim

[Chorus]

And that's why, my love, you never live without
I know you want me girl
'Cause I can see you checkin' me out
And baby, you know, you know you want me too
Don't try to deny it, baby, I'm the only one for you

[Verse 3]
Damn girl, I'm beginning to sprout then Alfalfa
Why should I wash my filthy mouth out?
You think that's bad, you should hear the rest of my album
Never has their been such finesse and nostalgia
Man Cash, I don't mean to mess with ya gal but
Jessica Alba, put a breast in my mouth, bruh
Wowzers! I just made a mess in my trousers
And they wonder why I keep dressing like Elvis
Lord help us, he's back and in his pink Alf shirt
Lookin' like someone shrinked his outfit
I think he's bout to flip, Jessica
Rest assured, Superman's here to rescue ya
Can you blame me? You're my Amy, I'm your Blake
Matter fact, make me a birthday cake
With a sawblade in it to make my jailbreak
Baby, I think you just met your soulmate
Now break it down, girl!

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
So baby, baby
Get down, down, down (Baby!)
Get down, down, down (Baby!)
Get down, down, down (Baby!)
Get down, get down (Baby!)
Get down, down, down (Baby!)
Get down, down, down (Baby!)
Get down, down, down (Baby!)
Get down, get down

[Talking]
Oh Amy!
Rehab never looked so good!
I can't wait!
I'm going back!
Haha! Whoo!
Dr. Dre
2020
Yeah!
