[Eminem - Fall][ANALYSIS]
this song is like a modern version of 'marshall mathers' it's awesome
(probably my fav song of kamikaze ngl)
[SLOT 1] - verse 1
'gotta concentrate, against the clock i race' - using 'marathon' as a metaphor to say that he already knows that he's late for responding to the critics. however, by mentioning 'marathon', he could be referencing the saying: 'it's a marathon, not a sprint' in terms of him pacing himself to reply to critics, rather than acting rashly and replying straight away. 'you'd swear to god i forgot i'm the guy that made "not afraid"' - em breaking his promise not to be involved in drama again. tbh, he kinda broke that promise years ago so yeah. 'one last time for charlamagne' - charlamagne is an ignorant, corrupt douchebag don't @ me. 'these rappers are like 'hunger games', one minute, they're mockin' jay, they get their style from migos or they copy drake - 'hunger games' is famous movie trilogy where the final installment is called 'mockingjay'. mockingjay is a bird that imitates sounds, a way to. here, em is alluding to artists copying jay-z (mockingjay/mocking jay(-z)), as well as the respective styles of migos or drake.
[SLOT 2] - chorus
sung by justin vernom. when 'fall' came out, vernom has actually come out and publicly disavowed his participation on this track, just bc em used homophobic slur. he even said he wants to kill this track, ppl are just too sensitive smh
[SLOT 3] - verse 2
starting this verse perfectly by dissing budden who, to be fair, had it coming. i remember in january '18, when he denied all the 'theories' that em was dissing him on 'chloraseptic' lmao. 'tyler create nothin', I see why you called yourself a faggot' - although i like tyler, he had it coming too. like he started annoying me too when he said 'walk on water' is trash. there was literally no reason for him to diss em i just don't get it. 'get earl the hooded sweater, whatever his name is' - the same as tyler, there was no reason for him to diss eminem. i don't get why you would say that 'eminem fans drink too much mountain dew' when u claim to be a stan urself.
i'm continuing in the comment section
