If I Had

If I Had

Eminem

The lyrics of this song were comprised after a week of things going consecutively wrong for Eminem in the summer of 1997 and were recorded at a later point (winter time) of the year.

Voicing feelings of misanthropy and doubt towards those he considered friends, this song found Shady completely disillusioned with human nature – reacting musically to the harsh reality that Marshall Mathers then had to face.

As he later loftily expressed in the Relapse (bonus) track “Elevator,“ Eminem eventually accumulated excessively more capital than he fantasized about here and has a net worth of $230m – as of January 2021.
