Five More Eminem Song Sequels We Would Love to See
Guess who's back? Back again? Yes folks, Eminem has returned with a new album. This time, the oddly constant-comeback theme of his second run seems more evident than ever with its title The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Longtime fans should be surprised to discover the opening track is "Bad Guy," something of a sequel to longtime Eminem favorite "Stan." Given how sequel-minded both Em's new album and many hip-hop veterans have been lately, here's our picks for five more Eminem songs we want sequels to.
"Lose Yourself Again"
Eminem shares the recipe for Mom's Spaghetti.
"Son of Stan"
So, yes, we already do have our "Stan" sequel in "Bad Guy," but what if this was merely the second installment of a full-blown "Stan" franchise? We at the Weekly think the most compelling avenue to take the series would be a song from the perspective of Stan's unborn child who's not only somehow survived, but is now 13 and infinitely perplexed as to why his late father was so obsessed with the guy who made "Berzerk."
"Dave From White Castle: Life Support"
In Eminem's breakout single "My Name Is," Em mentions a guy at White Castle asking for his autograph, which he signs "Dear Dave, thanks for the support, asshole." A rude gesture, especially considering this was before Eminem was in any way famous beyond local battles. Now image you're mild-mannered Dave who's had this exchange and later watched the jerk in question become the biggest thing in the world. Perhaps Dave could be on a vengeance mission, only to discover Em's been harboring regret for the incident for years and wants to apologize as this was the moment he broke bad and his personal life took a terrible turn?
