Themes and topics

A large part of Eminem's popularity is his separation from the
over-abundance of "pop-rap", in which rhymes rarely stray from
bragging about money and jewelery, fast cars with large rims, huge
parties, and constant casual sex. Instead, Eminem's songs typically
explore deeper anger, thoughts, questions, and statements about his
life and how he is treated. Common topics are:

Drugs and self-abuse (mostly in his early Slim Shady-era album and freestyles)
His mother and childhood
Being white in a black business/culture and growing up in a black neighborhood
His wife (Kim Mathers, whom he remarried in 2006)
Disgust with groupies/dating
Growing up in poverty-ridden Detroit
Raising his daughter and niece
America and the government
Poking fun at celebrities and American pop culture
Annoyance and/or amusement with people's literal interpretation of
lyrics in songs like "Criminal" and "Stan".
