Overview

Eminem: Crossing the Line by Martin Huxley

"God sent me to piss the world off," Eminem boasts on his breakthrough hit "My Name Is." A grandiose claim to be sure, but it's hard to imagine another rapper generating as much controversy and outrage as this bleach-blonde Detroit MC outlaw while still selling millions of records and becoming a hero to pop fans and hardcore hip-hop purists alike. The sharp-tongued product of crushing poverty and an unstable homelife, Eminem is much more than the goofy smartass he usually portrays himself as. Beyond the artist's inventive rhyming skills and appealingly warped lyrical persona, the multi-platinum major-label albums The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP present a dark, psychologically complex character whose vivid, vengeful rhymes embody a timely collision of Midwestern white trash and urban hip-hop cultures, while portraying an unpredictably violent yet absurdly hilarious world. Adopting the cartoonish yet unsettling persona of Slim Shady, Eminem spins colorfully absurd narratives involving sadistic violence while reflecting the tortured psyche of a deeply conflicted character whose real-life pain lurks beneath the surface of his outrageous alter ego.

It's those contradictions that help make Eminem a uniquely compelling artist whose primal appeal transcends boundaries of race and musical genre. Eminem: Crossing the Line, the first biography ever written of this unique pop-culture icon, offers a fascinating peek into the strange and twisted world of Slim Shady.

Y'all know what it is! Katy Perry, Juicy J, uh huh, Lets go! I knew you were, you were gonna come to me, and here you are but you better chose carefully. Cause I, i'm capable of anything, of anything and everything. Make me your Aphrodite, make me your one and only. But dont make your enemy. Your enemy, your enemy. So you wanna play with magic, boy you should what you're falling for, baby do you dare to do this cause I'm coming at you like a Dark horse! Hey! Are you ready for ready for, hey! A perfect storm, perfect storm! Hey! Cause once your mine, your mine! There's no going back! Mark my words! This love will make you levitate, like a bird. Like a bird without a cage. But times urge, if you choose to walk away, dont walk away. It's in the palm of your hand now, baby. It's a yes or a no, no maybe. So just be sure before you give it all to me, all to me, give it all to me! So you wanna play with magic? Boy, you should know what your falling for. Baby, do you dare to do this cause I'm coming at you like a dark horse! Hey! Are you ready for, ready for, hey! A perfect storm, perfect storm, hey! Cause once your mine, once your mine. There's no going back. She's a beast. I call her karma. She'll eat your heart out like Jeffery dama. Be careful, try not to lead her wrong. Shorty hearts on streoids cause her love is so strong. You might fall in love when you meet her. If you get the chance, you better keep her. She is sweet as fire but if you break your heart she turns as cold as a freezer. A fairy tale. Come on. I am her night in shing armour. She will be my sleeping beuaty. I am gonna put her in a coma. Didnt think I love her shorty so bad. Her love is like a drug. I try to hit and quit but little mama so doppa, messed around and got addicted. So you wanna play with magic, boy you should know what your falling for! You should know! Baby do you dare to do this! Cause I am coming at you like a dark hore! Hey! Are you ready for?! Ready for! Hey! A perfect storm! Perfect storm! Hey! Cause once your mine! Once your mine! There's no going back!
