** He's admitted to cringing at "Cleanin' Out My Closet" in recent years, manly due to his more unfair criticisms of his mother's illness and declaring that he'd never let Hailey see her. "Headlights" from ''The Marshall Mathers LP 2'' is a more sincere apology to his mother.

* ColbertBump: Pleasant English singer/songwriter Music/{{Dido}} went global after Em sampled a part of her song "Thank You" for "Stan".
* CreatorBacklash: He became so sick of "My Name Is" that after a while, he would only play snippets of it at his concerts - often stopping the song to declare that he was sick of it. He lampshades this in "The Way I Am."

* ExecutiveMeddling: ''Music/TheMarshallMathersLP'' 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]].
** 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]].

* BreakthroughHit: "My Name Is".

* OldShame: ''Infinite'' and the songs with racial slurs on them that were uncovered qualify. On the topic of ''Infinite'', Eminem explained that he hadn't really found his own style yet, that he sounded like a Music/{{Nas}} wannabe, and that it felt more like a demo tape that got released than a proper debut album. And about the racial slurs, he's apologized about them, and even made a song on the ''Encore'' album, "Yellow Brick Road", that discusses them.

** He tends to take this view towards "Relapse." It's not an album he regrets making, but he doesn't feel it's up to par with the rest of his catalog, due in part to the fact he was stuck in a mindset throughout and in part to the repeated usage of fake accents.

** He tends to take this view towards "Relapse." It's both ''Encore'' and ''Relapse''. The former, he admits that his addiction was getting in the way of making an album worthy of his skills. With the latter, it's not an album he regrets making, but he doesn't feel it's up to par with the rest of his catalog, due in part to the fact he was stuck in a mindset throughout and in part to the repeated usage of fake accents.
