I still remember, back in 2011 we friends used to share songs over Bluetooth. It was one of those days, a friend of mine shared the song Mockingbird with me and that was the time I was introduced to the Rap world and undoubtedly the Rap God.
I can totally relate to what you are saying in your songs. So when I have a shitty day, I just drift away and put them on. Because that shit really helps when I’m depressed. Every song of yours motivates or inspires or has some message to the people that are going through hard times.
Thank you so much for everything that you put out through your songs, unlike others who put out the garbage. You gave me strength, hope and a voice with your music, you gave people like me a reason to live for. I no longer hear the words of discouragement. I don't doubt myself anymore because you made me believe in my inner strength and to not care about what other people say.
But in your last album, I felt the weight of your self-doubt. The Rap God who never gave a fuck now has abundance of fucks to give, which disappointed hardcore Stans. I don’t think you realize what you mean to us Stans, not even the slightest clue you have. You don’t believe in yourself anymore? I think we gotta problem here. Call Doctor Dre, please bring back the Slim Shady and tell these dumbfucks that Old School isn't over yet. Show the critics that Kings never die and that they are Phenomenal.
See everything you say is real, and I admire you because you tell it. You've gone through soo much, fell multiple times but you stood up and you are still here for us. You are the reason I didn't give up. My girlfriend's jealous because I talk about you 24/7. But she doesn't know you like I know you Slim, no one does. And even if you don’t hit me back, just to chat, I'll still be your biggest fan.
Your biggest fan, this is Stan.
PS: We love the new matured Eminem but still we miss Slim Shady. Awaiting Slim to spit open fire.
