Everybody knows this man:
“Slut, you think I won’t choke no whore
Til the vocal cords don’t work in her throat no more?!
These motherfuckers are thinkin’ I’m playin’
Thinkin’ I’m sayin’ the shit
Cause I’m thinkin’ it just to be sayin’ it”
Famously known as Slim Shady, Eminem, Marshall Mathers.
We know him for some of his insane lyrics, borderline manic rhyme schemes, gruesome details of wanting to kill his wife, raping his own mother, choking women.
Most people know him for the persona he plays in his music. The angry white boy who is on a mission to ruin the day of all his haters. He wants to destroy them, put them all in a line and shoot them down.
But few really truly understand that it really is an act.
Most know about his one daughter, Hailie Mathers.
But very few people know that he has three other adopted children.
His second daughter, Whitney, is his ex-wife’s daughter from another man.
His third daughter, Alaina, is his ex-wife’s twin sister’s daughter.
His fourth kid, Nathan, is actually his younger half-brother who he has legal custody over.
So here is a seemingly haunting clown played out over stereo over drugs and murder and abuse.
Behind the scenes, he’s just a guy trying to love his kids and do right.
