Tom MacDonald – Dear Slim Lyrics

 

Dear Slim Lyrics – Tom MacDonald

Dear Slim, I thought you mighta heard of me maybe

‘Cause lately everywhere I turn someone’s comparing us, crazy

I never woulda thought when I was bumping Biggie and Pac

That I would buy bleach in a box and become the product of Shady

But I’m here now, hi, my name is Tom MacDonald

People call me controversial, I’m the one that counterculture follows

Every song I drop’s a problem, I offend an awful lot

With topics commenting on race and politics, I’m pretty awesome

Dear Slim, I know we’re very different politically

Seems like some of your biggest fans are the victims I’m triggering

They’re convinced I don’t like you which ain’t consistent with history

I was picked on as a kid and they don’t know what Slim did for me

But I’m here now, and I fight the system just like you

Was addicted to pills and liquor and quit ’em just like you

People claim that you hate me, but Marshall, that can’t be right, dude

You’d have to hate yourself as well, ’cause Marshall, I’m you


Marshall, remember back when

You became Eminem

You changed the world with a pen

Well, now I’m just like you

I don’t give a what saying what I want with my fingers up

Everybody triggered and they think I suck

But I don’t give a what, na na-na na-na

But I don’t give a what, na na-na na-na na na na


Dear Slim, I thought that maybe ’cause you paved the way for me

You might relate to weight that Caucasian rappers are carrying

They’re constantly comparing us to you, it’s embarrassing

Never gaining their approval, it’s just hate we’re inheriting

But I’m here now, go ahead and hate, it don’t hurt

Call me culture vulture garbage, those are ignorant words

I kill a vulture, cook the poultry in a pan till it’s burnt

See, Marshall, I’m just like you, I’m flipping the bird

Dear Slim, I just wanna give you your flowers

I spent hours memorizing all of your songs in 2000

You were the reason I screamed at all of my teachers, a teen

I needed your CD on repeat and Shady’s face on my t-shirt

But I’m here now, they call me controversial just like you

We’re both white, both rap, both of our eyes blue

Screw any guy who tries to say you’ve changed and don’t like you

‘Cause in my mind it’s still ’99 and I’m you


Marshall, remember back when

You became Eminem

You changed the world with a pen

Well, now I’m just like you

I don’t give a what saying what I want with my fingers up

Everybody triggered and they think I suck

But I don’t give a what, na na-na na-na

But I don’t give a what, na na-na na-na na na na


Whether you love me or hate me or think I’m crazy

Dropped a hundred grand to get a beat from Shady

I really hope when I bought it he wasn’t angry

But I really had to tell him that he changed me

The truth of the matter is without you Marshall Mathers

I woulda committed suicide before I was a rapper

You showed me that I could do it, I didn’t need to be blacker

I know it’s stupid but I just had to do my best to say thank you


Marshall, remember back when

You became Eminem

You changed the world with a pen

Well, now I’m just like you

I don’t give a what saying what I want with my fingers up

Everybody triggered and they think I suck

But I don’t give a what, na na-na na-na

But I don’t give a what, na na-na na-na na na na


Marshall, remember back when

You became Eminem

You changed the world with a pen

Well, now I’m just like you

I don’t give a what saying what I want with my fingers up

Everybody triggered and they think I suck

But I don’t give a what, na na-na na-na

But I don’t give a what, na na-na na-na na na na
