* BreakawayPopHit: "Lose Yourself" was this for ''Film/EightMile''. Though ''8 Mile'' was not obscure, "Lose Yourself" completely outstripped it. It won Eminem an Academy Award (the first ever for a hip-hop song), remains his best-selling single, and was ranked at #166 on ''Magazine/RollingStone's'' Top 500 Songs of All-Time.

* ExecutiveMeddling: ''The Marshall Mathers LP'' was 100% complete before Eminem was forced to add one more track, per request by the Interscope Records execs. They wanted a SpiritualSuccessor to the zany pop anthem "My Name Is" for the lead in radio single. As we all know, the result was "The Real Slim Shady". The song's intent is quite obvious, since it doesn't sound like anything else on the entire album. Interestingly enough, Eminem went through a mountain of writer's block to reach that point, and he let out his surmounting frustration with the vitriolic (though excellent) "The Way I Am". [[WordOfGod According to Em]], his displeasure with being typecast by the higher ups fueled a brief feud between him and Interscope, [[OhCrap which nearly got him kicked off the label]].

** "Hailie's Song" was not intended for public release--Dr. Dre talked him into it after playing it for his friends.
** ''The Marshall Mathers LP'' was considered complete before "The Way I Am" or "Real Slim Shady," however, the higher-ups didn't feel it had much in the way of single-worthy material.
* WriteWhatYouKnow: He is often either the speaker or the subject of his works.

Added DiffLines:

** He's not very proud of ''Relapse'' in retrospect. In "Not Afraid", he says "let's be honest, that last ''Relapse'' CD was ''ehh''", and in "Guts Over Fear", he says that he'd rather make a sequel to "Not Afraid" over "We Made You", which is a ''Relapse'' track.

** Of course, this corporate conflict ended up resulting in two great songs off an highly acclaimed and commercially successful album, so this could be a case of [[{{TropesAreTools}} Tropes Are Not Bad]].
