4 Times Eminem Referenced “September 11 Attacks” In His Songs

Today 16 years have passed since “The September 11 Attacks,” also referred to as 9/11, which were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda in the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Since then, a lot of Hip-Hop artists, including Eminem, Jay Z, Jadakiss, Immortal Technique and Lupe Fiasco, have referenced 9/11 in their tracks. Below is the list of songs where Eminem referenced the incident in his rhymes:

1. Public Enemy

“I can feel the tremors tremendous / In remembrance of September eleventh / Flash back to September seventh when Tupac was murdered in Vegas.” 


2. My Dad’s Gone Crazy

“More pain inside of my brain than the eyes of a little girl / Inside of a plane, aimed at the World Trade / Standing on Ronnie’s grave, screaming at the sky / Until clouds gathe, it is Clyde Mathers and Bonnie Jade.”


3. Patiently Waiting

“S**t, what you know about death threats, cause I get a lot / Shady Records was 80 seconds away from The Towers / Some cowards f**ked with the wrong building. They meant to hit ours.”


4. The Osama bin Laden

“Things just ain’t the same for Osama / So much drama Since the World Trade Bombings / And the Pentagon got the world calling / Me to kill all of congress, like Gary Condit / The Strangest things can happen to an Afghan / When people get wrapped up in Islam and Allah / Then some s**teaters fly planes and wreak havoc / Then go drop the blame on Bin Laden.”
