Eminem
Provoserende rapper

Sangen “I’m Shady” ble sett på som meget kontroversiell i USA da den kom ut i 2002. Psykologer hevdet at sangens tekst hadde villedet en ung mann til å drepe. Sangen ble svartelistet og nektet spilt av flere radiostasjoner.

Lytt til låten I'm Shady

Her er et utdrag fra teksten:

"Who came through with two glocks to terrorize your borough (huh?)
Told you how to slap dicks and murder your girl (I did!)
Gave you all the finger and told you to sit and twirl
Sold a billion tapes and still screamed, "Fuck the world!"
(I'm Slim Shady..) so come and kill me while my name's hot
And shoot me twenty-five times in the same spot (Ow!)
I think I got a generation brainwashed
to pop pills and smoke pot til they brains rot (uhh-oh)
Stop they blood flow until they veins clot
I need a pain shot, and a shot of plain scotch
Purple haze and acid raindrops
Spike the punch at the party and drink pop (gulp gulp)
Shaved my armpits and wore a tank top
Bad Boy, I told you that I can't stop
You gotta make em fear you 'fore you make em feel you
So everybody buy my shit or I'ma come and kill you [...]"
