    "I call them peephole
    Because they're so easy to see through 'em"


    This metaphor right here is enough to ruin a nearly perfect song to the point where it is unlistenable to me.

    How out of touch is Eminem with every-day life? When was the last time he even had to use a peephole?

    Firstly we all know that peepholes are NOT easy to see through. They are a tiny and convex piece of glass that are often at differing heights, and they can only be viewed through one way. Peepholes are anything but easy to see through. He would've been better off saying "I call them windowpane because they're painful to watch do this" or something.

    Also this article states that the guy who broke into his mansion last year was caught on a doorbell camera. Eminem doesn't even have a peephole on his house!!!

    This is why I don't like Eminem's music much anymore. He is simply rapping for the sake of rhyming, with no logic or sense behind it. It is uninspired and poorly thought out.

    I am very disappointed in Eminem for this line.

    Who told Eminem that we went to listen to him rap about Vampires, Chia Pets, and Rudolph?

    In Not Alike he says "only time you'll say "I lost" you'll be talking about Fetty Wap", but this only works if Kelly is saying "I lost" about himself, so Eminem is basically saying Kelly can't lose.

    In Stepping Stone he says "I know it wasn't my fault but some of it probably is"...dude, is it or is it not your fault? If you know it isn't, how can some of it probably be?

    Not a fallacy, but still a weird fact that Eminem dissed Proof and his mom on Rap God. He responded to Proof's line from 6 reasons

    "The new god of rap, call me n----- Thor" with:

    So you'll be Thor and I'll be Odin
    You rodent, I'm omnipotent
    Let off, then I'm reloadin'
    Immediately with these bombs I'm totin'
    And I should not be woken
    I'm the walkin' dead, but I'm just a talkin' head, a zombie floatin'
    But I got your mom deep-throatin'

    The last line is definitely a jab at Proof's mother. It's been known that she trash-talked Em for not helping her.
