Throughout his 18-year career, Eminem (a.k.a., Marshall Mathers) has never shied away from expressing exactly how he feels in his lyrics. From his personal battles with substance abuse to his disdain for other artists, Slim Shady has held nothing back, including his animosity towards his own mother.
In one of the most famous feuds in music history, Eminem regularly embedded hateful messages about his mother, Debbie Mathers, in his songs. Ranging from her alleged drug use to the mistreatment of both him and his younger brother, Eminem put it all out there for the public to hear. Making matters worse, Ms. Mathers sued her son in a high-profile defamation case in 2001, which was eventually settled out of court.
This volatile feud may finally be coming to an end, however, as Eminem has dropped a new video apologizing to his mom for the hurtful things he said about her in his previous songs. Entitled “Headlights,” the song was included on his 2013 studio album The Marshall Mather LP 2, but the video for the single hit just in time for Mother’s Day, 2014.
