There are plenty of violent Slim Shady records to choose from. However, this "imagined" scenario with his ex wife Kimberly Scott is easily the most effed-up of the bunch, as he screams threats at her for leaving him for another man—after he forces her into his car, where he explains how he killed her new boyfriend and his son, but before he cuts her throat while their daughter is asleep back at the house. More of a self-indulgent personal therapy session than a great record in its own right, it still provides a troubling window into a dramatized version of Eminem's anger towards his daughter's mother. What it lacks in body count it more than makes up for in creepy plausibility, as Marshall is hardly the first guy to fantasize about taking revenge on the woman he feels has wronged him. Good thing he just a made an over-the-top song about it, huh?
