** A lesser, more humerus example: "My Band" by [=D12=] revolves entirely around how they're only known by the general public as "Eminem's group." It ended up being their biggest hit. SelfFulfillingProphesy much?

Added DiffLines:

** "Still waiting for 'My Salsa'."[[note]]Referring to the last few seconds of "My Band," where Em ad libs a parody of the then-recent hit "Milkshakes" by Kelis called "My Salsa," singing that it will be his next single. Fans like to joke about how it hasn't come out yet.[[/note]]

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Encore's "One Shot 2 Shot" has Em and D12 rapping about a shooting at a D12 concert. Proof's death two years later made this song even scarier than it already was. Even scarier is that despite Proof being alive at the time, he wasn't even on the song, which could mean that in the song's story, he ''did'' get shot.

* TooSoon: In the Benzino diss rap ''The Invasion Part 1'', released in 2004, Eminem [[CrossesTheLineTwice tempted the fates]] with an [[RefugeInAudacity irreverent 9/11 joke]]. "But if you even considering takin' our label down/You better find our building and fly a fucking plane into it."

* MemeticBadass: Eminem is this to his fans, who consider him [[SacredCow untouchable]] and relish every instance of Em ending a beef with a [[TakeThat savage diss track.]]

** Also, Eminem is dressed up like Robin in the music video for "Without Me". 13 years later, the Robin of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' has a ComicBookFantasyCasting when he looks like Eminem in the similar look and feel.

* WeirdAlEffect: "Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?" is actually derived from the 1960s/70s game show ''Series/ToTellTheTruth'''s catchphrase "Will the real [person's name] please stand up?", used to reveal the true mystery guest.

The song itself contains a few lines that parody a couple of contemporary songs like "The Bum Bum Song" and "The Bad Touch", which have largely been forgotten today.

** 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.

** In "My 1st Single," Eminem suggests The Source would be so low as to find journalistic merit in child pornography. In 2004, this was a horrible accusation to make of anybody. [[https://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/mar/09/gawker-media-trial-hulk-hogan-aj-daulerio In 2016... not so much.]]
