“25 to Life” is the sentencing for murder. This song is about Marshal’s relationship with Hip-Hop. “F*ck You Hip-Hop I’m leaving you, my life sentence is served” meaning that he gave his life to Hip-Hop, he sacrifice everything for it, he was so devoted that he didn’t spend anytime with his girls “Jealous when I spend time with the girls”. In this song, he is saying how he is done with Hip-Hop, how he gave everything to it and it didn’t give anything back, it didn’t appriciate him. He’s saying he’s walking out on Hip-Hop, he’s “divoricing” it, “Go marry someone else and make em famous” He became addicted to it, and this is his release/recovery.The origin of the song was created by Eminem on latest album “Recovery” that was release June 18, 2010. It was produced by DJ Khalil and features the vocals of Liz Rodrigues, who is a member of the producer’s group. On this mellow track Eminem compares his hip-hop career to torn relationships, detailing how his devotion to music and the resulting fame has affected his ability to relate to women. So, you could relate on real life situation we have struggles in life we be Eminem shoes and be like man I went through same thing. Having producer and artist was great collapse to bring the song out
The song starts of Liz Rodriguez singing “Too late for the other side Caught in a chase, 25 to life Too late for the other side Caught in a chase, 25 to life Too late” She keeps saying “25 to life” it keeps repeating to itself through the song. While Eminem keeps singing all his life struggles through the song. He sings aggressive you could feel the pain while he sings. Liz sings her part very calm basically telling Eminem that its to late your so deep that it will be hard for you to leave me basically. Eminem keeps saying to her all the shit I do for its not good for you. The pattern is good because Eminem keeps telling her his felling and Liz just its to late to go to the other side. Chorus from the piano hits the notes right it
“25 to Life” song hits all three its appeal to ethics, it also apples to emotion, and appeal to logic. It appeals to ethics by s “a way of convincing an audience of an argument by creating an emotional response to an impassioned plea or a convincing story”(YOURDICTONARY) which Eminem sings about “I don’t think she understands the sacrifices that I’ve made Maybe if this bitch had acted right I woulda stayed But I’ve already wasted over half my life, I woulda laid Down and died for you, I no longer cry for you, no more pain”(Eminem) he starts of the struggles and efforts he puts in for her and yet she never gave him any love for he was doing. Right there states already one that might go threw same emotion and struggle we could all relate too. In logic he gives a way of persuading his reason using facts and figures. As we know he had issue with his previous relationship even from his first wife Kim when starting of his career it was a struggle for him. The media came out was always around him since he was becoming up coming rapper which draws big attention. They were always following his wife even through the argument they had and cheating scandal in his beginning of his career. Which part of his verse he states “I gave up my life for you, totally devoted to you I have stayed Faithful all the way, this is how I fuckin’ get repaid? Look at how I dress, fuckin’ baggy sweats, go to work a mess Always in a rush to get back to you, I ain’t heard you yet Not even once say you appreciate me, I deserve respect” (Eminem) here you could tell the suffering he was having just to please for his wife so hes giving his life experience he went through. Eminem uses Logic through all his music not just “25 to Life” since we know a little about his life hes not afraid to share it with his fans. His music helps men or women understand just to become the greatest it going to be hard to retain it or detain it since life comes obstacles you need to be ready to make some sacrifice along the way.
This is amazing to listen to after being cheated on. There’s like no words for how powerful this is. It explains my past 8 year to the max. I gave everything, was always waiting to get something back in hopes it’d get better, but I was addicted to her. Ended up getting cheated on and left behind. Thank god I’ve always got Eminem. Everything Eminem said I picture myself. Especially when he says,” Look at how I dress, fuckin’ baggy sweats, go to work a mess Always in a rush to get back to you, I ain’t heard you yet Not even once say you appreciate me, I deserve respect” I worked two jobs and went school for my family it was never good for her. My life was to better my family for some reason it always backfired in return. Eminem brought my life to this song it was struggle and painful especially when driving to work at night and this song played just want to let everything out and shout out this line.
That’s why the song “25 to Life” was very powerful song and one my favorite from the album “Recovery”. Eminem had a lot to state from losing his friend Proof (DeShaun Dupree Holton), his drug addiction almost cost him his life, and going through a breakup. People that are going a tuff time like myself could relate to it and having it from a male point of view is even better. Recovery album is one his greatest and those who wants to hear it won’t be disappointed especially if your feeling down.
