Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that's why I call you dad, because you are so special to me. You taught me the game and you taught me how to play it right.
Happy Father’s day.
I love and miss you Papa..😖😍 Hug you, Ipip! Stay healthy ya.

Eminem- the father who 'recovered'
#FathersDay | Legendary rapper Eminem has had a troubled family life before he started rapping. Em says that his single mother Debbie Mathers wasn't an ideal role model for him, especially when she started taking drugs.
In a twist of irony, Eminem too ended up being the thing he was most afraid of: a bad parent. He had a daughter Hailee with his wife in 1995. And this is when his marriage itself started having troubles.
Distance, cheating and drugs all played their parts in ruining their bond and young Hailee had to see her parents divorce at a young age. Em whipped out some songs dedicated to Hailee at this time. In Mockingbird, he apologises to Hailee and his two other adopted daughters, and in When I'm Gone, he laments on how constant touring never gives him enough time to spend with Hailee.
His sales were increasing but so was his dependency on drugs. "My liver, kidneys, everything. They didn’t think I was gonna make it." He recounts this time when he fatally overdosed.
This overdose made him relapse but he still got back up. Even releasing an album titled Recovery, Eminem was determined now to recover for his own good. He totally re-invented his career with a change of tone in his music and proved himself to be a good enough father.
Child services didn't take Hailee and she and Eminem have only been closer since the past few years. Last year was significant for both father and daughter. Em celebrated 10 years of being sober while Hailee graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in psychology.
His fatherly love for her is so intense that he's ready to diss other rappers for it! When Machine Gun Kelly passed some lewd comments on an old photo of Hailee's, Eminem dropped a track called "Killshot" where he mocked Kelly with some brutal lyrical insults.
Em and Hailee are still close and constantly communicate with each other. Eminem is apparently working on a new release while Hailee is an Instagram influencer now.
