When Rap Lyrics Get Censored, Even on the Explicit Version

Eminem on "My Name Is" (1999)

Lyrics Censored: "My English teacher wanted to [have sex] in junior high. [The only problem was, my English teacher was a guy]...extraterrestrial, [killing] pedestrians, [raping lesbians] while they screaming at me. 'Let's just be friends!'"

British musician Labi Siffre wouldn't clear the "I Got The" sample without the promise of censorship. The lyrics were changed on all versions of the album, including explicit copies.
