Some may say Genghis was worse than Hitler.
Killing his own people and even his brother. in this lyric he’s making a reference to Genghis and saying the media labeled Eminem as a bad guy for all of the profanity and curse words he uses in his music. “The media, made me the equivalent of a modern day Genghis Kahn.” (12) Meaning the media portrayed him as just a bad influence due to his profanity. Although the song talks about his struggles it is also very motivational and speaks of great words. “At least I made it out of that house and a found a place in this world when the day was done So this is for every kid who all’s they ever did was dreamt that one day just getting accepted I represent him or her, anyone similar, you are the reason that I made this song.” This song ofcourse was made for a reason. Eminem dedicated this song to people who have had a rough life, people who just want to be accepted in life.
This part is explaining basically all of the obstacles that made Eminem feel the way he did, having to balance himself as in keeping himself from not giving up. “Cause I can’t explain to y’all how dang exhausted my legs felt Just having to balance my damn self But on eggshells I was made to walk But thank you, ma, ’cause that gave me the Strength to cause Shady-mania.” (82-84) Eminem feels as if he was supposed to go through all of those obstacles in life. He was meant to struggle in life. “For all the times I let you push me around and let you keep me down.” (Chorus) The whole theme of the song is basically about never giving up and doing what you believe is right and to never let anyone keep you from achieving your goals.
