Inside Eminem and Hailie Jade Mathers’ private father-daughter bond


“I said your name but I always tried to hide your face,” he rapped in 2017 on “Castles”, out of The comeback, lamenting that Hailie ever had to carry her luggage just because she was his daughter.

“This game is crazy / I wanted to claim my love from you but damn it / I didn’t know it would be like this / If I had done it I wouldn’t have done it / You didn’t ask for any of this s– t. / Now are you being punished? / Things that should have been private with me and your mother are public. “

All told, Hailie Jade – either one of her nicknames or just her existence – has featured in nearly two dozen songs during her career. (“Hailie, baby, I didn’t mean to do 80% of what I rapped to you,” he proposed on “In Your Head” in 2017. “)

Her daughter’s unintended climax to fame likely came in 2002 thanks to The Eminem show“Hailie’s Song” (“My little girl keeps getting older / I watch her grow up with pride / People make jokes, because they don’t understand me / They just don’t see my true side / I act) like shit, don’t faze me / Inside it’s driving me crazy / My insecurities might eat me alive / But then I see my baby / Suddenly I’m not crazy / It all makes sense when I look at her in the eyes “) and” My father has gone mad “.

The latter features the unforgettable 6-year-old Hailie, “I think my dad is gone. crazy-zeh! ”hook, which, Eminem said Rolling stone in 2004, she proposed.

“If I feel like I’m working too much, I let the kids go up to the studio,” he said, explaining how their collaboration came about. “I’m getting this little guilt trip inside, so I’d ask Kim to bring her in and leave her lying around the studio. So me and [Dr.] Dré were working together, and Hailie was running around the studio and she was like [in a little girl high voice], ‘Someone please help me! I think my dad has gone mad! ‘”
