I Got Booed off Stage | Eminem


The first time I grabbed a mic, I got booed. I remember that, it was very traumatic for me, I just remember that being so f*cking traumatic and I think I went home, like man, "I quit." And then, maybe a couple days later, a week later, hour later, whatever it was, I don't know, I got the urge, to like, "No man, I got to get up, got to do it again." Like always with anything you got to take the good with the bad. There's new problems you're going to have with everything, if it wasn't my success, and I would still try to look for a job, or work in a dead-end job, and didn't have no money to eat with, it would be those kind of problems that I would have. Those type of family problems. How are we going to feed Hailie? How we going to raise her? How are we going to stay together? How are we going to pay our rent? I think one of my greatest inspirations, or things that I would feed off of, basically was just, obviously, people not believing, the cloud of doubt, that kind of, hung over my head, and wanted to just prove everybody wrong, you know what I mean? I wanted to make it, and I was going to make it regardless of what anybody said.
