“Picture a perfect picture, picture me in a pimp hat. Picture me starting shit, picture me busting my gat. Picture police mad they ain’t got a picture of that. Picture me being broke, picture me smoking a sack. Picture me coming up, picture me rich from rap. Picture me blowing up, now picture me going back. To my momma’s basement to live, shit, picture that. Where I’m from it’s a fact, you gotta watch your back. You wear a vest without a gat, you’s a target, Jack. Hustle hard, money stack, sell that dope, sell that crack. Sell that pack, sell that gat, sell that pussy, holla back. 50 Cent, too much Henny, man, I’m bent, I’m outta here.”

“Yeah, so that made me want to stop rapping—for like, a long time,” Em said after rapping Fiddy’s impressive verse. Who still can’t deal with Eminem’s beard?
