Satanism in Hip Hop: Eminem

Updated on February 16, 2011

On this article, Satanism in Hip Hop, i will provide you how the rapper Eminem allegedly sold his soul to the devil for money and fame.

* note to readers- this information was gathered by youtube videos, and Eminem's own lyrics he wrote. I am not in any way forcing you to believe what is written. In the end, this is for entertainment purposes only. The only thing i ask for you is an open mind.*

* note to readers- I do not believe you can sell your soul to the devil. I am not saying Eminem did sell his soul, he may have written these lyrics as metaphoric meanings. I do not in any way intend for this article to bash or hurt Eminem in any way.*

Throughout Human History, Satanism is connected to almost every genre of music. When Rock n Roll was popular, many people claimed it was "Devil worship music". In the dark ages, the Catholic church denounced instruments to be used in religious music. Their reason was because Pagans used instruments during their worship for the Gods. It is not a surprise that Satanism is linked to Hip-Hop today.

There is a conspiracy that several musicians sold their soul for money and fame. Artists often say it in their lyrics. On this article, we will look very closely at one artist, Eminem.

" If I could go back, I never would've rapped. I sold my soul to the devil, And i'll never get it back." - Eminem on "Say Goodbye to Hollywood"

Like many artist, Eminem write his music on how he feels. The quote above shows that he regrets selling his soul to the devil. Most people do not listen to every word of every song, especially when it comes to rap music.If you listen (or read) closely, you will find many other artists often talk about the devil.

In the Bible, Satan was an angel in God's court of angels. In matter of fact, he was God's favorite Angel. Lucifer (aka satan, the devil) was the angel of music. He played beautiful music on a harp for the Lord. As we all know, Lucifer was sent down to hell, thus becoming the devil. With all of this in mind, if Satan wanted to influence people, wouldn't he use the one thing that he was the best at? Music.

Eminem's "My Darling" is a song where he and the Devil is talking back and forth. Go to youtube and go listen to the song. The lyric pretty much says it all.

*Warning* this is very disturbing lyric. If you are not comfortable reading it, then don't

. "My Darling" - Eminem

The underline part is Satan talking to Eminem. Eminem words will be in bold.


My darling,
I don't ever want you to leave me,
My darling
You and me were meant to be together,
My darling
And if I can not have you, no one can you're
My darling
'Cause I possess your soul, your mind, your heart, and your body.

Verse 2
Shady, I know you're in there somewhere,
Come here, talk to me, sit here, pull up a chair,
Why don't you cut your hair?
Dye it back, come on try it

Ah no, I told you, leave me the f--- alone, will you?

But I'm here to re-build you

But I already killed you!

But Shady, we were meant for each other
Think about your mother

Yeah, so what of her?

Well, think about what she did to you and your little brother!
All them foster homes!

F-- you, motherf----r!
I had you beat!

No, I was playin' possum
'Member, I let you watch your little girls blossom
I gave you enough time, your soul's mine
I'm taking it back!

You f------ b----! Why?

Because I love you, look a little closer...
Isn't that us on that poster?

Shady, listen (crowd chanting Shady) you hear that?
They're screaming for you,
I can bring you career back!

But I don't want it back

Yes you do!

No I don't!

Yes you do! You're gonna regret it later

No I wont!

I'ma get Dre on the phone, I'll just call the doctor

Go ahead, I already talked to Dre yesterday

Well I got him on the phone right now

You're lying

Yo, Slim?

How? Why now?
What up Dre?

Check this out, Slim, I gotta talk to you
I dunno
It just seems like ever since you got off your drugs
You became a lot softer!

But Dre, all Shady is, is a bottle of hair bleach and vodka!

Well, just think about it, Slim, I'm here!
Just hit me back and let me know what's up

F--- this mirror! Ah!

I'm not in the mirror
I'm inside you, let me guide you!

F--- you! Die you son of a b---- !

Put the gun down!

Bye bye!

Okay, I'm still alive!

So am I too!
You can't kill a spirit even if you tried too, haha
You sold your soul to me, need I remind you?
You remember that night you prayed to God
You'd give anything to get a record deal
Well, Dre signed you!
This is what you wanted your whole life, Marshall, right whoo?
Look at this house!
Look at these cars!
Oh so nice, whoo!
Oh, but you didn't know fame has a price too?
That you're just now seeing the down side to!
Lose your best friend from high school, your wife too!
Ain't even sure if your kids like you
Come off tour, can't even sleep at night without NyQuil
Become a Valium addict, start a rehab cycle
But together we can break the cycle

No one's gonna love you like I do!

"My Darling" clearly shows what's going on in Eminem's head.

Eminem's new album, The Recovery, Is said to be about Eminem's battle with drugs. That Eminem is done for good with drugs. This is not the case. His new album is about how he stopped following the devil and how he is trying to live his life with God. He has Christian lyrics all throughout the album.

I know they are many, many more lyrics, but i cannot show them all or this page will take days reading. Thank you for reading and i hope you enjoy.

      my name is michael i really want to share my testimony on how i became an

      Illuminati member, through my friend. i was moving with my friend for more

      than 10 years and he have been getting rich everyday and even giving me

      money but he never told me the secret of his success until a day i was

      frustrated to let him know that he should help me also that was when he

      open up to me and tell me that he was a member of the Illuminati that he

      have been in the cult for more than 10 years that his riches and

      protection came from this i told him to let me be into the court

      but it not an easy task to be a member but i was finally initiated into the

      devil church of the Illuminati and i was confirm in there church. after a

      month of being a member of Illuminati i got promotion that same month in my

      working place and within a year i was promoted thrice in my working place

      to the extend of being a managing Director i never know how to thank this

      church of Illuminati and today am rich as my friend also, and also the one

      that surprise me most was that i got an accident with my new car and the

      car was right off but i still survive the accident and nothing happen to me

      i really thank you people Illuminati. so i just want to share to the world

      that this is real and it have help me and work for me so if you want to

      become a member i can lead you into the cult of richness and you will

      never be poor again, know that it only a member in the Illuminati that can

      initiate you into the church of illumination they do not contact directly

      because they are fake Illuminati all over the world, this is my email they will tell you how to join,

      Eminem has turned again to the devil I truly believe that he was trying to escape the illuminati but he just couldn't the illuminati would have killed him check the 2011 Grammy awards when lady gaga threatens eminem after he launched recovery em your fans still love you and you are not alone please find gods light and chose the right way say no to the devil you are the one who can change it all find god and god vl forgive you for all your sins and you can start a new life under the guidance .

      and protection of the lord


      You are not alone in this battle please find god and you will .be forgiven.

      when i was young i wanted to be a ballerina, and did something similar, years later, god showed me that he is so much bigger than all that stuff, done for many reasons, and he understands why,...he owns the devil, its like a flea on a dog.... he is not going to put the dog down over the flea, man your name eminem, is like me in me, and that's who you are, when we are truly ourselves we are most like him....and that's where he likes being.

      What eminem did is the best obtion of his life, I so much like that his song "I'm not afraid to take a step" denouncing the devil is the best thing and decesion one can take because my bible tells me that what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul in hell. The bible also made us to understand that the devil come to steal, distroy and kill , but Jesus Christ come that we may have life. If other musicians will be as wise as eminem and do the same it will be of their own good. Because the devil has been defeated and he is not a factor. So wise eminem stand on your faith, the devil can not do you any thing as long as you are in Christ Jesus

      Satan`s power is exaggerated in music .why? Satan is a silly creative thing .he is not God. i don`t believe in his power except making confusion for humans and he want us to live with him forever in hell .please don`t fear satan .he is fake .i believe in Jesus Christ.once and forever.don`t give satan any credit.

      It is far more than lyrics. Look at everything Eminem has stood for, and who he stands by in his fame. Illuminati, research it. I wasn't a believer in it until I tried to disprove it. Explore different artists along with him. Some will disagree, and that is fine. But simply disagreeing without trying to disprove it is ignorant.

      its not about his alter ego! listen to it closely and clearly you will understand! "You can't kill a spirit even if you tried too, haha

      You sold your soul to me, need I remind you?

      You remember that night you prayed to God

      You'd give anything to get a record deal

      Well, Dre signed you! " read that how can that be his alter ego!

      my darling was about his inner battle with his alter ego slim shady when he was on drugs. slim busts out the crazy lyrics full of swear words and craziness. the deep voice was almost slim trying to come out while marshal was staying sober. this article is outrageous. he's nuts but he never truly sold his soul. this is NOT a lyrics translation it's bullshit.
