Eminem, Quotations, Quotes

Eminem is a prolific rapper. Em’s got a bigger catalog than most any other rapper out there right now. What follows are Eminem quotes about everything from friends, enemies, life, and dope.

Drug Ballad has gotta be my favorite Em song ever. There was never a vid for it, but the song was put to some pics on youtube.

My fave Em quote from this list?

I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the freedom of speech to the limit.
-Eminem, talking about his debut album

I was takin’ a shit. I swear to God. And the fuckin’ name just popped into my head. Then I started thinkin’ of twenty million things that rhymed with it.
-Eminem, talking about how he came up with the alter ego “Slim Shady”

I had this whole Slim Shady concept of being two different people, having two different sides of me. One of them I was trying to let go, and I looked at the mirror and smashed it. That was the whole intro of the Slim Shady EP. Slim Shady was coming to haunt me…
-Eminem, talking about his Slim Shady alter ego

Slim Shady is just the evil thoughts that come into my head. Things I shouldn’t be thinking about. Not to be gimmicky, but people should be able to determine when I’m serious and when I’m fuckin around. That’s why a lot of my songs are funny. I got a warped sense of humor I guess
-More Eminem talking about Slim Shady, his alter ego

When I was 9 years old, my uncle put me on to the Breakin’ soundtrack. The first rap song I ever heard was Ice-T, ‘Reckless.’ From L.L. to the Fat Boys, and all that shit, I was fascinated. When L.L. first came out with ‘I’m Bad’, I wanted to do it, to rhyme. Standing in front of the mirror, I wanted to be like L.L.
-Eminem’s childhood influences

Anybody with a sense of humor is going to put on my album and laugh from beginning to end.
-Eminem, on his album

Infinite was me trying to figure out how I wanted my rap style to be, how I wanted to sound on the mic and present myself. It was a growing stage. I felt like Infinite was like a demo that just got pressed up
-Eminem, pontificating about Infinite

I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the freedom of speech to the limit.
-Eminem, talking about his debut album

I had nothing to lose, but something to gain. If I made an album for me and it was to my satisfaction, then I succeeded. If I didn’t, then my producers were going to give up on the whole rap thing we were doing. I made some shit that I wanted to hear. The Slim Shady EP, I lashed out on everybody who talked shit about me
-Eminem talking about the Slim Shady EP

One thing I won’t do is put out another song like ‘My Name Is,’ his breakthrough hit. ‘I can’t stand that fucking song’ he says. ‘This album is rawer. Fans looking for bubblegum rap aren’t going to get it here
-Eminem, on the Slim Shady EP

To all the people who never gave love, and continue to deny me ‘cuz of what I look like: suck my dick you fucks!!!
-Eminem in regards to the haters

There’s a difference between realness and an act, and they’re an act, and they know they’re an act, and they even say they’re an act, they even say they’re cornballs, they admit it
-Eminem talking about ICP

I don’t think I take the beef as seriously as they do, because I don’t consider them artists. They look at me as an artist. I think they get more uptight about it. I can look at them and laugh. They can’t do anything to me. What can they do to me? They have no credibility, no respect, no talent, they have nothing. All they can do is diss me vocally, they can’t diss me lyrically. There’s nothing they can do to me as far as the music goes. I don’t take it as seriously as they do and I think that frustrates them. I think it’s funny.
-Eminem, talkin’ on ICP

Look. I was pissed off!” That’s all I could say. I really felt that I wanted to do that shit. At one point in time, I really wanted to do that shit. For real
-Eminem, on his wife Kim

My father? I never knew him. Never even seen a picture of him.
-Eminem

My family has never been there for me. They expect things because we’re blood.
-Em talking about his family

It was an honor to hear the words out of Dre’s mouth that he liked my shit. Growing up, I was one of the biggest fans of N.W.A, from putting on the sunglasses and looking in the mirror and lip syncing, to wanting to be Dr. Dre, to be Ice Cube. This is the biggest hip-hop producer ever.
-Em on Dre

I would never fucking put them in a rhyme. I don’t even want them wondering if I was trying to diss them. I got a lot of love for them. I grew up on that shit. The other rappers, whatever.
-Eminem talking about the Beastie Boys

I don’t want them once they turn 18.
-Eminem on Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera

I hate bitches. [One] fucked up, and it made me look at girls as sluts.
-Em on girls

A bunch of girls, swinging from a nice chandelier, landing on top of me naked…while I lay in a pool of steaming hot water!
–Eminem’s Spring Break fantasy

I don’t like to give the sob story: growing up in a single-parent home, never knew my father, my mother never worked, and when friends came over I’d hide the welfare cheese. Yo, I failed ninth grade three times, but I don’t think it was necessarily ’cause I’m stupid. I didn’t go to school. I couldn’t deal.
-Eminem in regards to his early education

I mean I got jumped, fucked up shit happened to me a few times, but that happens to everybody. I don’t think it has anything to do with color or any of that shit. It’s just all a part of growing up.
-Eminem, reminiscing about growing up in the hood

My earliest memory was raping the babysitter when I was 5…she was 15.
-Em on his younger years

Why is it so hard for people to believe that white people are poor?! I wouldn’t say I lived in a ghetto, I’d say I lived in the ‘hood. The same friends I had back then are the same people on tour with me now.
-Eminem talking about his developmental years

We just kept moving back and forth because my mother never had a job. We kept getting kicked out of every house we were in. I believe six months was the longest we ever lived in a house.
-Eminem, talking about being a kid

There were times when friends had to buy me fuckin’ shoes!
-Eminem saying what it was like to be a kid

Whoever likes my stuff, likes my stuff. But just know Slim Shady is hip-hop. I grew up on hip-hop, it’s the music I love and it’s the music I respect. I respect the culture…that’s me
– On the hip-hop culture

I’m not alone in feeling the way I feel. I believe that a lot of people can relate to my shit – whether white, black, it doesn’t matter. Everybody has been through some shit, whether it’s drastic or not so drastic. Everybody gets to the point of ‘I don’t give a fuck’
– About his attitude

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 of life

The white boy got game, i’ll give him credit. He can throw down some rap lyrics and make some since. He is the next best rapper after Tupac, Eminem, T.I., and many more……Cathy P
