    Eminem Brings Back Slim Shady With ‘Houdini’


    Houdini opens with a sample of the Steve Miller Band’s ‘Abracadabra’ before launching into a familiar melody. Fans will instantly recognize the iconic “Guess who’s back, back again?” intro from Eminem’s 2002 smash hit, ‘Without Me.’ This sets the tone for the rest of the track.

    Eminem takes aim at various targets throughout the song. He throws jabs at Megan Thee Stallion and her getting shot in the foot by Tory Lanez, questioning his chances of getting a collaboration with her. He also pokes fun at his own aging career, referencing the recent string of high-profile retirements in the music industry. 

    However, the most shocking element of the song comes in the form of a self-deprecating tirade that extends to his own family. Eminem throws a quick but undeniable diss at his daughters, Hailie Jade, Alaina, and Stevie, calling them “brats” in a line that has already sparked controversy online.

    The inclusion of this line has left fans divided. Some see it as a classic Eminem move, others argue that it’s all part of the act, a way to generate buzz for the album. Additionally, Eminem has a long history of using outrageous lyrics to push boundaries and provoke reactions. However, people are concerned about the potential impact on his relationship with his daughters.
