"Dear Slim Pt. 2" as written by and Jonah Sorrentino Michael Ripoll....
Dear Slim I wrote you but you're still not callin
Its been a couple years since I wrote that song and
A lot has changed now for you and I
I had no clue I would write and song to you and it would change some lives
Kids with tears in their eyes now come up to me
Showin love to me and sayin they look up to me
The effects to me well its really kind of hard to see
I only wanted to share with you now what Jesus has done for me
But theres a whole other side of things now I have come to see
Its a huge influence that you got upon the industry
But enough of me, its not what Ive came to say to you
Not a day goes by where I don't take time to pray for you
And I'm sorry for what you're mom and dad they did to you
And I can relate with you cause well dude, Ive been there to
I know theres a lot of pain and hurt that you been through
But never forget theres a real love God gave for you

La la la la la [to whom it may concern]
La la la la la [its still to whom it may concern]

Dear Slim, I wrote you but you still ain't callin
Backstage at the VMA's someone gave you my song and
Im kind of wonderin what you thought man
When that guy walked up to ya talk to ya and put it in your hands
Maybe you never listened to it or maybe you lost it
Or maybe you heard it or just got mad and tossed it
Did he diss you back, thats the question that I always get
Im like well God forbid you might even have liked it
I don't know but congratulations on your movie yo
And I heard ya last record, well over 10 million sold
But theres one thing that really gets me thinkin bro
Does a grammy mean anything if it just got to cost ya soul
In case you didnt know theres a love that will never go away
You said you were goin to hell but it don't have to be that way
See the bottom line of what I'm tryin to say is
God puts back together the broken pieces thats been thrown away
Even if everyone you know up and goes away
He'll still love ya till that very day that ya old and gray
Too bad alot of Christians all they do is hate on you
Instead of droppin to their knees and takin time to pray for you
And its obvious that ya really love ya daughter dude
And for that I gotta to tell ya well I really got respect for you
So here it is dear Slim chapter part 2
From another cat jus tryin to make it jus like you

La la la la la [to whom it may concern]
La la la la la [its still to whom it may concern]

Dear Slim did you hear that junk I'm goin through
Kids sendin me hate mail tellin me now I'm bittin you
Tellin me now they gone beat me and kill me too
But alot of people jus seem to get the song confused
See what I say to you it might even sound funny
But I never came at you to paint you as the enemy
It wasnt about hatin you or startin some controversy
It wasnt about blamin you or tryin to make some money
I didnt claim to know everything that you have exprienced
Man I don't know if you'll ever even be hearin this
But I said it once, and I still hold to this
Is a life witout Christ is still a life that is never fixed
I'll tell you this even if its a hard pill to swallow
Like it or not Slim, you're always gonna be a role model
Do you know these kids were the ones they always follow
What we say and how we live gives them a better tomorrow
I had my share of sorrows plus I've been rejected
Ive been chewed up, spit out and dissprespected
But If I die today and I never sell another record
Jesus gave me more then ever could've been expected
I know life is hectic it can leave you blown away
But check it bro cause we all gonna die some die
On that note well there's only one thing left to say
It still one love one God and only one way

    General Commenti think that KJ has made a great song. i know people may see it as an attack on Eminem (which, btw, it isn't). KJ isn't promoting any religion, he is concerned about the influence Eminem has with kids and he is just trying to make him aware of that. I like quite a few of Eminems songs, because he is honest and says how he feels about stuff. so what's the difference here? KJ is also being honest and just saying how he feels. And why should someone not be allowed to sing about their faith in any kind of song???

    General CommentEven tough I'm a jew I like KJ since he's not boring like many other rappers,anyway the beat of the song and the way he raps show you that he ain't dissing

    Oh and I respect KJ more,his ALOT more mature

    General Commentivand... Not the most eloquente way to put it, but I agree. Singing about God is fine. But making a song that is to written to another person is inappropiate. Yes we can put in death threats or people mothers into songs. That's not good either.

    My point is the same as it is in my comment in part 1, Religion don't belong in a song of this sort.

    General CommentGod's love has nothing to do with religion. Christianity isn't about religion, it's about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and knowing him as your savior.

    General Commentalright. so i used to be a fan of eminem but you know what? i think KJ is better. and please dont even try to say things about the fact that KJ brings religion into it. hes a christian rapper. everyone has some way of expressing their feelings. no matter what, the point gets across one way or another. its just that KJ used a more direct way, music that millions will hear, to try to get his message across. this is the way he chooses to live. following God. i live the same way so its easier for me to understand, but seriously...i have extreme respect for KJ because he had exterme courage to write that song and get it out into the public. i agree with angel101...he has every right to try to defend himself and try to help others. so many people are offended by eminem. KJ is our voice.

    oh, and VH1....its pronounced FIVE TWO.

    General CommentShane108- No. You're dead wrong. Eminem did not write a reply/parody of this. This song is supposed to be done in the same way Eminem did "Stan." Stan was out way before the first song by KJ.

    On another note, I think that KJ got his point across in the first song. There is no need for "part 2" and this one feels a lot more like he is harping on Eminem rather than trying to talk to him. Also, I feel like he has been trying to shove the bible and christianity into Eminem's face, which ticks me off, but, its not out of the character for Christian Genre Musicians...
