Before I was famous, when I was just working in Gilbert's Lodge, everything was moving in slow motion.
Quotation of Eminem

Quotation of Eminem
Fame hit me like a ton of bricks.
Quotation of Eminem
I always wished for this, but it's almost turning into more of a nightmare than a dream.
Quotation of Eminem
I am whatever you say I am; if I wasn't, then why would you say I am.

I don't hate women - they just sometimes make me mad.
Quotation of Eminem
I got caught up in the drinking and the drugs, the fighting and just wilding out.
Quotation of Eminem
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.

Quotation of Eminem
I was born in Kansas City, and my dad left when I was five or six months old.
Quotation of Eminem
I was poor white trash, no glitter, no glamour, but I'm not ashamed of anything.
Quotation of Eminem
I would love it if, even for one day, you could walk through a neighborhood and see an Asian guy sitting on his stoop, then you look across the street and see a black guy and a white guy sitting on their porches, and a Mexican dude walking by.
Quotation of Eminem
I'd go to, like, six different schools in one year. We were on welfare, and my mom never ever worked.
Quotation of Eminem
I'm proud of myself for pulling through all that and my criminal cases, my divorce. If I was still on drugs and living the life I lived three years ago, I'd be a failure.
Quotation of Eminem
I'm stupid, I'm ugly, I'm dumb, I smell. Did I mention I'm stupid?

Quotation of Eminem
It sometimes feels like a strange movie, you know, it's all so weird that sometimes I wonder if it is really happening.
Quotation of Eminem
It'd be stupid for me to sit here and say that there aren't kids who took up to me, but my responsibility is not to them. I'm not a baby sitter.
Quotation of Eminem
Most of the time it was relatively cool, but I would get beat up sometimes when I'd walk around the neighborhood and kids didn't know me. One day I got jumped by, like, six dudes for no reason. I also got shot at, and ended up running out of my shoes, crying.
Quotation of Eminem
Music, in general, is supposed to be universal; people can listen to whatever they want and get something out of it.
Quotation of Eminem
My dream was like, let me get a record deal, let me go gold and I'll be happy. Let me make a living off what I do.

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

My only scheme was to be a rapper.

Quotation of Eminem
Nobody really understands the pressures put on me.
Quotation of Eminem
Personally, I just think rap music is the best thing out there, period. If you look at my deck in my car radio, you're always going to find a hip-hop tape; that's all I buy, that's all I live, that's all I listen to, that's all I love.
Quotation of Eminem
Say there's a white kid who lives in a nice home, goes to an all-white school, and is pretty much having everything handed to him on a platter - for him to pick up a rap tape is incredible to me, because what that's saying is that he's living a fantasy life of rebellion.
Quotation of Eminem
She really helps me when I'm about to do something too stupid. All I have to do is think about Hailie. She keeps me in check, definitely.
Quotation of Eminem
Sometimes I feel like rap music is almost the key to stopping racism.
Quotation of Eminem
Somewhere deep down there's a decent man in me, he just can't be found.

That's what I've found just on a street level - fans, and people on the street. They either can't stand me or love me for telling the truth and saying what's on my mind.
Quotation of Eminem
That's when I decided I wanted to rap. I'd hang out on the corner where kids would be rhyming, and when I tried to get in there, I'd get dissed.
Quotation of Eminem
The movie is about Jimmy coming out of his shell and finding his own way, not being a follower, being a leader.
Quotation of Eminem
The positive aspect of the movie is that no matter where you come from, you can break out of it if your mentality and drive is right.
Quotation of Eminem
The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.
Quotation of Eminem
Then when I was five we moved to a real bad part of Detroit. I was getting beat up a lot, so we moved back to K.C., then back to Detroit again when I was 11.
Quotation of Eminem
There are people coming to my house, knocking on the door. Either they want autographs or they wanna fight.
Quotation of Eminem
There was a while when I was feeling like, 'Damn, if I'd just been born black, I would not have to go through all this'.
Quotation of Eminem
There was this mixed school I went to in fifth grade, one with lots of Asian and black kids and everybody was into break dancing.
Quotation of Eminem
These times are so hard, and they're getting even harder.
Quotation of Eminem
Thing is, I'm not really a commercial rapper.
Quotation of Eminem
To the people I forgot, you weren't on my mind for some reason and you probably don't deserve any thanks anyway.
Quotation of Eminem
Well, reading is the worst thing in the world for me to do. I hate it.
Quotation of Eminem
When you're a little kid, you don't see color, and the fact that my friends were black never crossed my mind. It never became an issue until I was a teenager and started trying to rap.
Quotation of Eminem
Yeah, I did see where the people dissing me were coming from. But, it's like, anything that happened in the past between black and white, I can't really speak on it, because I wasn't there. I don't feel like me being born the color I am makes me any less of a person.
Quotation of Eminem
Yeah, near 8 Mile Road in Detroit, which separates the suburbs from the city. Almost all the blacks are on one side, and almost all the whites are on the other, but all the families nearby are low-income. We lived on the black side.
Quotation of Eminem
You can make something of your life. It just depends on your drive.
