An oft-forgotten deep cut from "The Slim Shady LP," Eminem's "My Fault" might be one of the funniest songs the Detroit MC has in his catalog. Telling the story of meeting an on-and-off-again heroine addict named Susan at a party, Eminem describes in cartoonish and vivid detail about how he convinces her to try magic mushrooms, and her ill-fated trip through psychedelic hysteria. The story reads like a demented sitcom, and Eminem demonstrates early on why he's destined to be remembered as one of the greatest storytellers in the history of popular music.
Give "My Fault" a listen, and let us know what you think in the comments. Are you more or less likely to try shrooms after hearing this?
Susan, stop crying! I don't hate ya!
The world's not against you, I'm sorry your father raped ya
So what you had your little coochie in your dad's mouth?
That ain't no reason to start wigging and spaz out
