Tear Jerker: Eminem
Like Toy Soldiers, a call for peace in the violent feuding among rappers, which has resulted in many good rappers (Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G. and others) losing their lives and having their voices silenced forever.
Mockingbird, a song dedicated to Em's daughter Hailie and the problems that she faces with her father and mother having marital problems and the way her father's life as a rapper has affected her.
Beautiful is just devastating, about the toll that Eminem's life has taken on him.
Hailie's Song, or for that matter, any song that Em dedicates to his little girl is both this and heartwarming. It's clear just how much he loves her.
Going Through Changes, about Eminem's fight with his drug addiction, and how it affects his family.
You're Never Over, Em's tribute to one of his best friends, the late D12 member Proof, who was gunned down in Detroit in 2006.
Difficult, another song dedicated to Proof, focusing on life without him.
I Need a Doctor, Em's tribute to Dr. Dre and his effect on his life and career.
Stan, about a Loony Fan who goes over the edge because of his obsession with Slim, and Slim finally writing back, telling him about an episode he saw on the news that made him sick, about someone who tied up his pregnant girlfriend and went off a bridge — and realizing that it was actually Stan. The song is inspired by the death of Eminem's uncle Ronnie, who took his own life in 1991.
When I'm Gone is another devastating piece about a family falling apart.
