All you really need to know about Marshall
What they say.....about Eminem


> 'Sometimes I'm real cool, but sometimes I could be an asshole. I
think everyone
is like that.'

> 'If people look deeper than the surface they'll discover a nice
person. Only
when I'm backed into a corner do i retaliate.'

> 'Marshall is a regular person, Eminem is a nice guy and Slim Shady is
a fucking
asshole, a complete dick. Which one do I want for a friend? Marshall.
Which one
do i most admire? Slim Shady. Who'd win a fight? Slim Shady. Who's the
smartest? Eminem. Who's the loser? Marshall. Who's the winner? Slim

> 'Slim Shady is juat another part of me, the dark, evil, creatively
sick part.'

> 'Truthfully, anything that has to do with colour, its like, next

> 'I was about nine when I started listening to rap. I started rapping,
my own rhymes about 14 and just kept getting better.'

> 'Just know Slim Shady is hip-hop. I grew up on hip-hop, it's the
music I love
and it's the music I respect. I respect the culture...that's me!'

> 'I speak the truth, I've got no reason to fabricate my past, no
reason to lie.
There will be no reconciliation. I've tried, I'll say that. I can't

> 'My family has never been there for my. They expect things because
we're blood.'

heard he's
trying to get in touch with me now. Fuck that motherfucker, man. Fuck

> 'Not to defend Kim, but I realise what has happened to me has
probably been a
strain on her, too. It's a crazy thing to deal with. You've really got
to be in

> 'I did this so that I could be a family to Kim and Hailie and raise
my daughter
the right way and not cut her out like my father did to me. My family
is all I
have ever fought for and all I have ever tried to protect. The only
thing i am
scared of is being taken away from my little girl.'

> 'Much as I hate doing the interviews and photo shoots and all the
extra work
that comes with the territory, that's what I am doing it for. So that
daughter's future is secure. So that when I die, if she never makes
anything of
herself - God forbid, I want her to do something, be a model, do music,
be a
doctor, anything - I'm gonna have that money there for her. I want her
to be set!'

> 'We're put here to make children. That's the reality of it. We're
here to
reproduce. And I reproduced. So now my life is for her.'

> 'I grew up listening to 2 Live crew and NWA and I never went out and
shoot nobody.'

> 'I get alot of fan mail, some of it's normal, and some of it's crazy
fan mail.
I'm a crazy guy, not clinically insane, but crazy, so I attract a lot

> 'I sometimes regret mocking my fans and my family on my records. I
just wanted
to make fans, regular people, feel more in touch with me, like I was a

> 'Yeah, I've pushed it. I can go further though, I can always go

> 'I do say things I think will shock people. But I don't do things to
people. There's absolutely nothing I wouldn't rap about. I'm a grown
man and I
speak my mind. I'm not trying to be the next Tupac, but I don't know
how long
I'm going to be on this planet. So, while I'm here, I might as well
make the
most of it.'

> 'My microphone is my psychiatrist, it listens to me talk. Once I've
got it
out, I'm not mad anymore.'

Christina Aguilera

"I took a lot of them, I took a bunch of pain killers - Tylenol. I
took 13, 16 of 'em and f*ckin' threw 'em up. I thought I was going
die, I thought I was going to die for real." ---Eminem On His Suicide

"I mean I got jumped, f*cked up sh*t happened to me a few times, but
that happens to everybody. I don't think it has anything to do with
color or any of that sh*t. It's just all a part of growing up."---
Eminem On Growing Up In The Hood

"At this point, I'm like "Come up with something new." I hate the
same old questions. But it seems like "white" magazines such as Spin
and Rolling Stone focus on my "whiteness" more than Black magazines"--
-Eminem On His Colour

"Why is it so hard for people to believe that white people are poor?!
I wouldn't say I lived in a ghetto, I'd say I lived in the 'hood. The
same friends I had back then are the same people on tour with me now"-
--Eminem On His Childhood

"It's funny how all the magazines can dwell on my race, but they
could NEVER say that my sh*t is whack because they know my sh*t is
tight!"---Eminem On Magazines

"Who's Tony Blair, did he get his dick s*cked?, oh he ain't f*cked
then..."---Eminem On Tony Blair [English Prime Minister]

"My earliest memory was raping the babysitter when I was 5...she was
15"---Eminem On His Younger Years

"I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the
freedom of speech to the limit." ---Eminem On His First Album

"One thing Iwon't do is put out another song like 'My Name Is,' his
breakthrough hit. 'I can't stand that f*cking song' he says. 'This
album is rawer. Fans looking for bubblegum rap aren't going to get it
here"---Eminem On His New Album

"My family has never been there for me. They expect things because
we're blood." ---Eminem On His Family

"Look. I was pissed off!" That's all I could say. I really felt that
I wanted to do that sh*t. At one point in time, I really wanted to do
that sh*t. For real"---Eminem On His Wife [Kim]

"Some f*ckers kept throwing oranges and other fruit at me while I was
onstage. F*cker had an arm like a major league pitcher..." ---Eminem.
About one of his concerts.

"Don't do drugs, don't have unprotected sex, don't be violent. Leave
that to me." ---Eminem. General quote.

"I had too much NyQuil and Vivarin again. Lost my stomach all over
the place." ---Eminem. General quote.

"Never take ecstasy, beer, baccardi, weed, pepto bismol, vivarin,
tums, tagamet hb, xanax, and valium in the same day. It makes it
difficult to sleep at night." ---Eminem. General quote.

"Sometimes I'm real cool, but sometimes I could be a real as*hole. I
think everyone is like that." ---Eminem on his attitude.

"I would never f*cking put them in a rhyme. I don't even want them
wondering if I was trying to diss them. I got a lot of love for them.
I grew up on that sh*t. The other rappers, whatever." ---Eminem on
the Beastie Boys.

"All my life I've been dealing with my race because of where I grew
up [Detroit] and being in the rap game. I'm at a boiling
point...Anybody who pulls the race card is getting it right back in
their face." ---Eminem on the question of race.

"You can't control who likes you. If I got Backstreet Boy fans what
am I supposed to do? Turn them away? Whoever likes my stuff, likes my
stuff but just know Slim Shady is hip hop, I grew up on hip hop, it's
the music I love and it's the music I respect. I respect the
culture...that's me" ---Eminem on his fans.

"I get offended when people say, `So, being a white rapper...and
growing up white...after being born white...' It's all I ever hear!" -

"Unless you want to f*ck me, why do you care what I look like?" ---

Slim Shady is just the evil thoughts that come into my head. Things I
shouldn't be thinking about. Not to be gimmicky, but people should be
able to determine when I'm serious and when I'm f*ckin around. That's
why a lot of my songs are funny. I got a warped sense of humor I
guess." - Eminem

"I don't like rap anyways, I'm just trying to get my p*rno career
started." ---Eminem



"If there's something that you want to do and you work hard enough at it, you'll do it. But you have to know that's what you want to do, whatever it is. If it's riding bikes, if it's painting cars, whatever it is, if you want to do it bad enough and you have your heart set on it and that's your dream,don't give up your fucking dream."

"Don't do drugs, don't have unprotected sex, don't be violent. Leave that to me."


"I do say things that I think will shock people. But I don't do things to shock people. I'm not trying to be the next Tupac, but I don't know how long I'm going to be on this planet. So while I'm here, I might as well make the most of it."


"Sometimes I'm real cool, but sometimes I could be a real asshole. I think everyone is like that."

"You gotta be careful what you wish for. I always wished and hoped for this. But it's almost turning into more of a nightmare than a dream."


"My mom is a lawsuit queen. All her life, she has sued people. That's how she makes money. When I was five, she had a job on the cash register at a store that sold chips and soda. Other than that, I don't remember her working a day in her life."

"When I was growing up I hated my mother. Why? Lots of reasons. But mainly because we were constantly moving, so I was always the new kid at school. I never stopped to think about whether that was her fault or not or what the situation was, I just blamed her for everything."
