Tom MacDonald – Dear Slim Lyrics

Dear Slim Lyrics by 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 inconsistent 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 quick ’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 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
