* MotorMouth: Yes, he's prone to this. "Rap God" from ''The Marshall Mathers LP 2'' is probably the best example. The most famous part of the song has him rapping at maximum speed for ''9 full bars''.

* MotorMouth: Yes, he's prone to this. Capable of this, with "Rap God" from ''The Marshall Mathers LP 2'' is probably being the best example. The most famous part of the song has him rapping at maximum speed for ''9 full bars''. In general, however, he generally doesn't engage in this; he does have a fast, sharply enunciated flow with few pauses that is commonplace among Midwestern artists, but he generally avoids the rapid-fire "chopper" flow that was popular in the Midwest when he was getting famous.

** The most censored song that got the most attention is "Stan", and not only that, but there are TWO versions of the music videos for the song, with the most recent Fuse "version" of the song more censored than the last two. While MTV's short version of "Stan" is heavily censored (also removing scenes of a [[DrivenToSuicide murder/suicide]]), the long version, however, isn't much better: Though Dido (singer of "Thank You" who played Stan's pregnant girlfriend in the music video) admitted in the interview that [[PregnantHostage she was the one who was]] BoundAndGagged and [[PunkInTheTrunk struggling in the trunk of the car to get the gag out and to scream while trying to breathe]] in the third verse, only fewer versions of the video's long version showing some scenes with her tied up and struggling, as well as a scene with Stan (played by actor [[FinalDestination Devon Sawa]]) drinking while driving, are shown. [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks The rest of the versions show only one brief clip of her at the trunk while removing a scene of Stan drinking and censoring the words]] [[FrothyMugsOfWater "drank", "vodka",]] [[DrugsAreBad "downers",]] [[BigShutUp "Shut up,]] [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch",]] [[PunkInTheTrunk "screaming in the trunk",]] "slit", [[BoundAndGagged "tied her up",]] "suffocates" and [[NeverSayDie "die"]]. In the last verse, [[HideYourPregnancy the censors remove all mentions of the girlfriend in the trunk]], as well as the lyric, [[HideYourLesbians "And what's this shit about us meant to be together?"]]

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: [[spoiler: "Bad Guy"]], yeah, you'd expect Marshall Mathers LP 2 to feature some throwbacks, so another song about murdering Kim is probably to be expected. [[spoiler: Actually, it's from the perspective of another throwback, Stan's brother, who is now grown up and ready to come to murder Marshall.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ToiletHumor: His wordplay in "Not Afraid" provides three examples of this trope: ''Quit playing with the scissors and shit, and cut the crap.''....''Shits his bowels out of him''....''Fuck the world feed it beans, it's gassed up.''

-->'''Rap Genius annotation''': Most of ''The Slim Shady LP'' dealt heavily with Ems struggles with poverty, but ''SSLP'' went quadruple platinum and made Em an overnight millionaire. On this album he speaks on his newly found fame and success. If he were to continue rapping about poverty hed make himself appear as a one trick pony, so he addresses the critics right of the bat. Instead, hes going to rap about his second favorite topic; drugs. Aint nobody saying shit about that.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: His Slim Shady alter ego qualified as this... that is, until he dyed his hair brown again. In 2013, in anticipation for ''The Marshall Mathers LP 2'', he became blond yet again.

** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1aJtQbJvb0 Em Calls Paul]]" from ''Encore''. When Paul tells Eminem that MichaelJackson is pissed off that the "Just Lose It" video made fun of him, Eminem ''lets loose.''
