When the Music Stops

When the Music Stops

Eminem (Ft. D12)

Eminem and D12 vent their frustrations with the rap game on the 16th track on Eminem’s fourth studio album, The Eminem Show.

D12, the rap group Eminem was a part of at the time, is featured in this song.

This song is about how people take rap way too seriously, and need to realize it’s just lyrics. The main message of the song is to stop “confusing hip hop with real life when the music stops,” as in going out and doing what you hear in rap songs after you’re done listening.

This song does not clearly sample any other song.
