Lyrics - Shock Value

So now that we know what he has accomplished, we will discuss his lyrics. What makes him different than most is that he says what people think in their minds, but are to afraid to say. His “mini stories” as I call them, draw you in and leave you wanting more.

Eminem quoted "I do say things that I think will shock people. But I don't do things to shock people. I'm not trying to be the next Tupac, but I don't know how long I'm going to be on this planet. So while I'm here, I might as well make the most of it." - On his philosophy for life

Eminem can be Extremely Funny

He can also give you an extremely good laugh. He has no shame, and will make fun of himself and is also willing to put himself in quite awkward situations.

 Eminem quoted "A lot of my rhymes are just to get chuckles out of people. Anybody with half a brain is going to be able to tell when I'm joking and when I'm serious." - About his lyrics

Eminem - On Not Being Ashamed

In reality we have all gone through some hard times in our lives. Some of us had problems growing up. Some of us have been around violence, some come from broken homes, and some of us have relationship issues. etc.. We all have a story. I think that what shocks people the most is that Eminem is able to openly express his inner most thoughts to the rest of the world and he does not care who’s listening or what you think.

Eminem quoted ”I was poor white trash, no glitter, no glamour, but I'm not ashamed of anything.”

Eminem Book

I am a Fan

I for one am a huge Eminem fan. His lyrics might be off the wall, but he is who he is and he does what he does. I believe he is an extremely smart and talented artist. To be able to push buttons the way that he does, and still have people love him is an art in its self.

Other Eminem Quotes

“My thing is this; if I'm sick enough to think it, then I'm sick enough to say it.”

“Anybody with a sense of humor is going to put on my album and laugh from beginning to end.”

“I am who I am and I say what I think. I'm not putting a face on for the record.”

“I don't hate women - they just sometimes make me mad.”

“I might talk about killing people, but that doesn't mean I do it.”

“I say what I want to say and do what I want to do. There's no in between. People will either love you for it or hate you for it.”

“I know and I want to be there for my daughter, whenever she needs me. I want to be with her on every step of the way, ya know. She's the best thing that happened to me.

"Dealing with backstabbers, there was one thing I learned. They're only powerful when you got your back turned."

" I am whatever you say I am; if I wasn't, then why would you say I am."

"I come from Detroit where it's rough and I'm not a smooth talker."

"I need drama in my life to keep making music. "

      Good to see an Eminem Hub. I feel he's top 5 hands down in hip-hop. I am willing to prove my point to anyone who disagrees.

      Nice hub. So true that most either love or hate Eminem. Me, I gotta have respect for his upfront, put it out there lyrics. Enjoyed watching 8 mile a few times. I find his life story amazing. Like mostly his old school raps.

      Thanks for your comments lovebuglena. Yes, he does state what's on his mind, that's what makes him different.

      Now you need to get some more of his albums lol!!

      Thanks for dedicating this hub to EMINEM and for writing about him. I didn't even know that he had so many albums out.

      I love EMINEM. He is an awesomely talented rapper. He doesn't rap only about money, drugs, and sex like other rappers, so that makes him stand out. I don't even think he raps about that at all. He says what's on his mind, tells it like it is, and is not afraid to put himself out there. I don't think he even cares about what other people think about him. I am not surprised that he sells out and has accumulated loads of Grammy's and awards. He deserves them all.
