Eminem is considered one of the greatest rappers of our generation. One of his characteristics is that he shares bits and pieces of his personal life in his music. Among his most popular songs, you’ll find “Stan,” which tells the story of an obsessive fan of Eminem, named Stan. The catchy tune and the disturbing lyrics has made the single a success.
As it turns out, the name “Stan” was not coincidental. We know that Eminem is a brilliant songwriter, but we didn’t realize how much, until Daphne pointed out that Stan is a combination of the words “stalker” and “fan.” We don’t know for a fact this is how Eminem came up with the character’s name, but it’s a good theory.
