Song Information

"3 a.m." is the second official single by American rapper Eminem from his album Relapse. The single was produced by Dr. Dre. The song was released onto the iTunes Store April 28, 2009. The music video was released on May 2 at 10:00 p.m. via Cinemax. Eminem raps about being a serial killer, questioning his own sanity and recalling a string of murders. The song, according to Eminem, is said to be closer to the overall sound of the album, as opposed to the poppy, fun-poking "We Made You". It features Eminem presumably rapping from the perspective of his alter ego Slim Shady, using both internal and multi-syllabic rhyme schemes in his three verses. The song contains a line from The Silence of the Lambs. This is the third time Eminem uses a reference to The Silence of the Lambs, to which Eminem also referred in the D12 song "American Psycho" from Devil's Night and the music video for "You Don't Know" from The Re-Up.
