Eminem – Cleaning Out My Closet

“Cleanin’ Out My Closet” is a song by American rapper Eminem from his album The Eminem Show (2002). “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” was the second single released off the album following “Without Me”. However, unlike the preceding single which was as his humorous Slim Shady persona, “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” was a serious yet sarcastic song based on his childhood and relationships. It also depicts Eminem venting his anger towards his mother, Debbie Mathers, for the way she raised him. In the chorus, Eminem sarcastically apologizes to his mother for hurting her and making her cry, but takes it back by showing the world what his mother, according to him, was like.
It became the second Top 10 single from the album, reaching number four on the United States Billboard Hot 100 chart, and one of the highest-charting singles of his career.
