** Becomes equally hilarious as the "Rapmobile" in the Without Me video is a Lamborghini Murcielago (Spanish for "bat"). In ''Film/BatmanBegins'', Bruce Wayne himself would drive a Murcielago.

** In the midst of "Lose Yourself", he includes the lyric "Mom's Spaghetti" in the midst of describing someone's nervous breakdown. It's meant to connect with the previous line, "There's vomit on his sweater already" as just a way of saying that the rapper in question threw up his mother's spaghetti that he ate earlier. This was lost on many, however, and the perceived randomness of the line has caused it to go memetic.

** In the midst of "Lose Yourself", he includes the lyric "Mom's Spaghetti" in the midst of describing someone's nervous breakdown. It's never explained what the Hell he's talking about (though it could be connected to the previous line, "There's vomit on his sweater already" as just a way of saying that the rapper in question threw up his mother's spaghetti that he ate earlier). The randomness of the line has caused it to go memetic.

* ContestedSequel: ''Encore'' to ''The Eminem Show,'' ''Revival'' to ''Relapse'' and ''Recovery.''

* ContestedSequel: ''Encore'' to ''The Eminem Show,'' ''Revival'' to ''Relapse'' and ''Recovery.'''' Averted with MMLP2, since it is a [[Main/WinBackTheCrowd return to form]] and on par with MMLP, [[WebVideo/TheRapCritic some]] saying it is [[Main/EvenBetterSequel better the first LP]]

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: "Murder, Murder" off ''Music/TheSlimShadyEP.'' The second stanza sees him looting a house for, among other things, a Nintendo 64 (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.



** While it was mocked for its heavy inspiration from Nas' style and its sales were non-existent, people who listen to ''Infinite'' nowadays find itů really not that bad at all. While Marshall himself still views it as a OldShame, he did celebrate the album's 20th anniversary by releasing a remixed version of the title track.

** ''Recovery'' is an inversion. When it was first released, it was seen as a solid comeback and an improvement over both ''Encore'' and ''Relapse''. However, it has garnered criticism overtime for its commercial-sounding production and lack of variation. It's not at all hard to find people who view it as his worst album.

This holds true for a handful of people even after the release of ''Revival'', which is generally considered to be his weakest record since ''Encore''.

* DorkAge: Many agree that he has had one, though it is contested when it started and ended (if it even has ended). ''Encore'' and ''Revival'' are the most obvious targets for indications of this time period, both being his most reviled albums. Some include ''Relapse'' and ''Recovery'' in this period, and others even see ''The Eminem Show'' as a downplayed example of this, with many regarding it as being OK but a mile away from the glory of ''The Slim Shady LP'' and ''The Marshall Mathers LP''.



** The general fan consensus regarding ''Revival'' is more or less this. While people such as Skylar Grey and X Ambassadors are familiar collaborators to most, fans were particularly shocked to see the likes of Alicia Keys, P!nk, Kehlani, and especially ''EdSheeran'' on the tracklist.
* WinBackTheCrowd: ''Recovery''.

tracklist, with not a single rap artist appearing as a guest star.
* WinBackTheCrowd: ''Recovery''. ''Recovery'' was designed to be one after the poor reception to ''Encore'' and ''Relapse''. Whether he succeeded is up for debate.


Added DiffLines:

** His collaborative work with many pop artists and moving away from collaborations with other rappers, which entered full force with ''Recovery'', has elements of this too - see WTHCastingAgency above.

** Both "Stan" and its follow up "Bad Guy" has this with ''both'' Stan and Matthew's obsession with Eminem. Also cross with FoeYay considering their [[LoonyFan subject matter]]. What worse is that Matthew starts off in "Stan" as a ''[[{{Squick}} 6 years old]]''.
