Reminiscing on a career plagued by controversy, Eminem doesn’t feel remotely sorry for those he offended over the years. Likewise with the other songs on Revival, this song also takes aim at Donald Trump, the President of the United States.
The whole chorus is sung in the tone of the “Nobody Likes Me (Guess I’ll Go Eat Worms)” children’s song, again insinuating that those who got offended need to grow up.
The end of the third verse sees Eminem take aim at the record books and beating his previous record of spitting 6.5 words per second in the fastest part of “Rap God” by spitting 6.71 words per second here. In the background of this part of the verse, “Flight of the Bumblebee”, a song known for its speed, begins to play in the background.
The song is produced by Illa Da Producer and Eminem himself and it samples “In You (I Found a Love)” by Charles Bradley (Ft. Menahan Street Band)
In a song, Eminem raps: “My competition can’t see me ’cause I don’t own a mirror. But Marshall, you are terrific, so smart and gifted. I’m so narcissistic, when I fart I sniff it, do a fake dab to smell my armpits with it.” — Em, those lines are CRAZY!
Looks like Eminem really likes PHresher cause not only he is the only rapper featured on the album but Em also uses same exact flow in this song as PHresher in “Wait A Minute” when Em raps: “Your anxiety’s throwin’ gang signs But I made strides with these rape lines, I’m cuttin’ back on women hate crimes, Like Ray Rice when he FaceTimes, Bang, bang, bang, bang time.”

Eminem also references his daughter Hailie in the song: “Sometimes I might get sad. Well, I take the same advice I had
and tell myself like I used to tell Hailie when life’s a drag. Told her to do like her dad: don’t cry, get mad.”
