Eminem is a bit like Dorothy. Nothing to do with shoes, though. Dorothy was born in Kansas. Eminem was born in Kansas City.
Dorothy is bored with Kansas. Eminem is bored with Warren, Mich. There is this nasty witch that keeps coming around and trying to screw up the future. (One is green, one is named Debbie.) Dorothy hooks up with a group of unlikely friends. Have you seen Bizarre from D12? ‘Nuff said.
They both head away from home, their roots. Both end up longing for home, but home means their people. Dorothy goes back to Auntie Em (no relation) and Uncle Henry. Eminem (as Marshall Mathers) makes his own home. His people are his home, too.
Sure, Eminem might seem alot angrier than Dorothy. If you think about it, though, Dorothy actually killed a few people. I guess she ends up with the street cred.
