When listening to Em songs in Side B, Music to be Murdered By Eminem shouts "Isaac"(I don't know if that is the correct writing of this name). Anyone knows what this reference is?

Why wouldn't it be the biblical Isaac, son of Abraham? God asked Abraham to sacrifice him. As he was a child Abraham had wished and prayed for for a long time, he was specifically cherished, and when God asked Abraham to sacrifice him, Abraham was less than enthused but went through with it and had Isaac bound on the altar and took to the knife before God stayed his hand, satisfied with the hold he had over Abraham.

That's sort of the traumatic stuff songs are made of.

    Do you have some citation you can give to back this up, or is this your own interpretation?
