Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: "Murder, Murder" off ''Music/TheSlimShadyEP.'' The second stanza sees him looting a house for, among other things, a UsefulNotes/Nintendo64 (to sell it at triple the price once shops run out) and some Beanie Babies.
** "The Real Slim Shady" off ''Music/TheMarshallMathersLP'' references the whole Napster crisis, which was a very hot issue around the TurnOfTheMillennium but has been largely forgotten ever since.
** It could be argued that a lot of Eminem records are firmly rooted in the time period they were released.

** 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.

** Before he decided on rapping, he wanted to make comic books. To that end, he picked up quite a bit of skill as an artist.

* 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]].
