According to the book Angry Blonde , this was Eminem's first "real" song, and was when he first came up with the whole "Slim Shady" theme. Some of the song's lyrics started disputes with other white rappers, namely Everlast , Miilkbone and Vanilla Ice. All three artists later released diss tracks against Eminem. Although Eminem dissed Vanilla Ice in other tracks such as "Marshall Mathers" and " Role Model " , he did not reply to either him or Miilkbone after their respective disses. The version of the song on The Slim Shady LP is one of a small number of Eminem tracks which has selective censorship on the uncensored version of the album. In the third verse, the word raped is reversed and replaced by a woman screaming.
