If I could take it all back now, I wouldn’t. I would have did more shit that people said that I shouldn’t.
”You don’t fuck with the white boy, Jay knows, everybody knows. I love Em’. He’s dope hes always been dope and as far as any type of lyrical war the guy, I don’t think anyone can beat him.” - The Game
A lot of truth is said in jest.
”His wordplay can’t be matched. If you listen to him; it’s sick! It’s ill, it has cancer and it has AIDS; that’s how sick it is!” - Tech N9ne
I always wished for this, but it's almost turning into more of a nightmare than a dream.

I come from Detroit where it's rough and I'm not a smooth talker.
I say what I want to say and do what I want to do. There's no in between. People will either love you for it or hate you for it.
”Out of all the artist I worked with he was the most involved.” - Nicki Minaj
Why am I here? Am I just wasting my time?
But then I see my baby, suddenly I'm not crazy,
It all makes sense when I look into her eyes.

In my mind I'ma fighter, my heart's a lighter
My soul is the fluid, my flow sparks it right up
Arsenic writer, author with arthritis
Carpel tunnel, Marshall will start shit-itis
No apologies, nah suckers I'm not sorry
You can all sue me, y'all could be the cause of me
No apologies, y'all feelin' the force of me
No remorse for me, like there was no recourse for me
No apologies, not even acknowledging you at all
I'mma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly
And all those who look down on me I'm tearing down your balcony
Marshall what happened at you, you can't stop with these pills,
And you've fallen off with your skills, and your own fans are laughin' at you.
It become a problem you're too pussy to tackle, get up,
Be a man, stand, a real man woulda had this shit handled.
I know it just feels like we just pissed away our history,
But just today, I looked at your picture, almost if to say,
I miss you self consciously, wish it didn't end this way.
You wear your heart on your sleeve. I sport that white tank boy.
But you got a hard on for me. What you hollerin my name for?
It's your bitch on my dick. Ain't my dang fault.

”As if the song couldn’t get any better. He just slays me, he’s such a genius.” - Hayley Williams
Seduction, seduce. Ain't nobody who's as good at what I do
Cuz one minute she wants you, the next she don't. She's been stolen from you.
So don't you seduce at what I do. Cuz one minute she wants you, the next she don't.
She's been stolen from you.
I just want to thank everybody for being so patient
And baring with me over these last couple of years
While I figure this shit out
Marshall you're no longer the man, that's a bitter pill to swallow
All I know is I'm wallowin', self-loathing and hollow
Bottoms up on the pill bottle
If I don't try to record as much before I do
The plan is to have as many in the can as I can
As I stand before you in this booth a walking deadman
Blank stare dead pan look as my face as I gaze into space
I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now it's a steel knife in my windpipe
I can't breathe but I still fight while I can fight
The days are cold livin’ without you
The nights are long, I’m growing older
I miss the days alone, thinkin’ about you
You may be gone, but you’re never over
But instead of feeling sorry for yourself do something about it
Admit you got a problem you brain is clouded you pouted long enough
It isn't them its you you fuckin baby
Quit worrying about what they do and do fuckin shady
I'm fucking going crazy
You ever love somebody so much you can barely breathe
When you're with 'em
You meet and neither one of you even know what hit 'em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah, them chills you used to get 'em
Now you're getting fucking sick of looking at 'em
So please accept my apology I finally feel like I'm back to normal
I feel like me again, so let me formally reintroduce myself to you for those of you who dont know
The new me's back to the old me and homie I don't show no
Signs of slowin up, oh and I'm blowin up all over
My life is no longer a movie but the shows aint over homos
“Technically, Eminem is the most skilled rapper I’ve ever heard.” - DJ Khalil
So why in the world do I feel so alone
Nobody but me, I'm on my own
Is there anyone out there
Who feels the way I feel
If there is, let me hear just so I know I'm not the only one
Now I know we said things, did things that we didn't mean
And we fall back into the same patterns, same routine
But your temper's just as bad as mine is
You're the same as me
But when it comes to love you're just as blinded
its enough to make me wonder whats in store for us
Its lust its torturous
You must be a sorceress cause you just
Did the impossible
Gain my trust don't play games it'll be dangerous
If you fuck me over
Cause if I get burnt imma show you what its like to hurt
And love is evil
Spell it backwards I'll show ya
Since I'm in a position to talk to these kids and they listen
I ain't no politician but I'll kick it with em a minute
Cause see they call me a menace and if the shoe fits I'll wear it
But if it don't, then ya'll swallow the truth grin and bear it
Never been afraid to say
what's on my mind at, any given time of day
You told me to get up, I got up and spread my wings and I flew
You gave me a reason to fight, I was on my way to see you
You told me nah Doodi you’re not layin’ on that table I knew
I was gonna make it, soon as you said think of Hailie, I knew
There wasn’t no way that I was gonna ever leave them babies, and Proof
not many are lucky enough to have a guardian angel like you
Lord I’m so thankful, please don’t think I don’t feel grateful, I do
Just grant me the strength that I need, for one more day to get through
So homie this is your song, I dedicate this to you
Know you just had your heart ripped out and crushed,
They say Proof just flipped out, homie just swift out and bust,
Nah, it ain't like Doody to do that,
He wouldn't fuckin' shoot at, no-body, he fights first,
But dwellin' on it only makes the night worse,
See I'm a poet to some, a regular modern day Shakespeare
But then of course everything always happens for a reason
I guess it was never meant to be
But it's just something we have no control over and that's what destiny is
These ideas are nightmares to white parents
Whose worst fear is a child with dyed hair and who likes earrings
Like whatever they say has no bearing, it's so scary in a house that allows
We know that no matter how many knifes we put in each others backs,
we'll always have each others backs
Cause we consider these minutes golden
And maybe they'll admit it when we're gone
Just let our spirits live on, through our lyrics that you hear in our
Yeah, It's been a ride...
I guess I had to go to that place to get to this one
Now some of you might still be in that place
If you're trying to get out, just follow me
I'll get you there
