// Tomorrow, I'll finally get to fulfill a childhood dream of watching Eminem perform live, and I've written a few verses for the legend leading up to the big day // DEAR EMINEM:
I don’t have much character limit, but I’ll try to make this worthwhile,
And though I can’t freestyle, I’ll walk the extra 8 Mile,
And compile words in your own style,
To tell you how you have influenced me all this while,
In this vile and hostile world, your words pulled me through,
And I’ll write it on every aisle, that I owe a lot to you.
Listening to you during school days made me feel so cool, hey,
It gave me the fuel to fool every single rough and tough gaze.
I treated your raps like essays,
Learning from every syllable, every word, every god damn phrase,
You helped me through a hard phase,
And from almost losing myself I went to feeling Not Afraid.
And in this forest of fantastic beasts,
If they know where to find ‘em they’d see,
A Dogg and a Tyga maybe,
But when they find you, Em, they’d see,
How you have ‘em all so damn beat,
By being the G.O.A.T that eats meat!
All I’m saying is you’re the Don Quixote of rap,
While they’re just donkeys called Hotay stuck in their own shit and crap.
Now I’m not dissin’ on other MCs,
But you’ve always been there for me,
While you threw all your rage onto a page,
I broke myself out of my cage,
You taught me the rules of the game,
But now I play with words on my own,
Rhyming everything under the sun and making such terrible puns,
Oh man, this is incredibly fun!
And Marshall Mathers, I must say,
Your songs matter to me till this day,
From the very first time I heard your ways till the recent release of Kamikaze,
And in your own controversial ways,
You made me Stronger Than I Was, I daresay,
And it might be a cliché to say this,
But you’re still the Rap God today,
So others might as well walk away.
On your astronomical return,
I know that you are Space Bound,
But I am kinda bound by space too,
As silly as it may sound to you,
I partially did it for the Gram,
And for every gram of validation I get from there, I know it’s a scam,
But I don’t mean to be shady when I say,
I love you Slim Shady, hombre.
A fan not a Stan,
