"Look, I was gonna go easy on you not to
hurt your feelings."

00:00:04
"But I'm only going to get this one
chance."

00:00:09
"Something's wrong, I can feel it."
(Six minutes. Six minutes. Six minutes,
Slim Shady, you're on!)

00:00:11
"Just a feeling I've got.
Like something's about to happen, but I
don't know what.

00:00:17
If that means what I think it means,
we're in trouble, big trouble; and if he
is as bananas as you say, I'm not taking
any chances."

00:00:24
"You are just what the doc ordered."

00:00:25
I'm beginnin' to feel like a Rap God, Rap
God
All my people from the front to the back
nod, back nod

00:00:32
Now, who thinks their arms are long
enough to slap box, slap box?
They said I rap like a robot, so call me
Rap-bot

00:00:37
But for me to rap like a computer it must
be in my genes
I got a laptop in my back pocket

00:00:41
My pen'll go off when I half-cock it
Got a fat knot from that rap profit

00:00:44
Made a livin' and a killin' off it
Ever since Bill Clinton was still in
office
With Monica Lewinsky feelin' on his
nutsack

00:00:49
I'm an MC still as honest
But as rude and as indecent as all hell
Syllables, skill-a-holic
(Kill 'em all with)

00:00:54
This flippity dippity-hippity hip-hop
You don't really wanna get into a pissin'
match
With this rappity brat, packin' a MAC in
back of the Ac'

00:00:59
Backpack rap crap, yap-yap, yackety-yack
And at the exact same time, I attempt
these lyrical acrobat stunts while I'm
practicin' that

00:01:04
I'll still be able to break a
motherfuckin' table
Over the back of a couple of faggots and
crack it in half

00:01:07
Only realized it was ironic, I was signed
to Aftermath after the fact
How could I not blow? All I do is drop
F-bombs

00:01:13
Feel my wrath of attack
Rappers are havin' a rough time period,
here's a maxi pad

00:01:16
It's actually disastrously bad for the
wack
While I'm masterfully constructing this
masterpiece as

00:01:20
'Cause I'm beginnin' to feel like a Rap
God, Rap God
All my people from the front to the back
nod, back nod

00:01:27
Now, who thinks their arms are long
enough to slap box, slap box?
Let me show you maintainin' this shit
ain't that hard, that hard

00:01:33
Everybody wants the key and the secret to
rap immortality like Ι have got

00:01:36
Well, to be truthful the blueprint's
Simply rage and youthful exuberance

00:01:39
Everybody loves to root for a nuisance
Hit the Earth like an asteroid
Did nothing but shoot for the Moon since
(Pew!)

00:01:44
MCs get taken to school with this music
'Cause I use it as a vehicle to "bus the
rhyme"
Now I lead a new school full of students

00:01:49
Me? I'm a product of Rakim
Lakim Shabazz, 2Pac, N.W.A, Cube, hey Doc,
Ren

00:01:54
Yella, Eazy, thank you, they got Slim
Inspired enough to one day grow up, blow
up and be in a position

00:01:59
To meet Run–D.M.C., induct them
Into the motherfuckin' Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame

00:02:03
Even though I'll walk in the church and
burst in a ball of flames
Only Hall of Fame I'll be inducted in is
the alcohol of fame
On the wall of shame

00:02:09
You fags think it's all a game, 'til I
walk a flock of flames
Off a plank and, tell me what in the fuck
are you thinkin'?

00:02:15
Little gay-lookin' boy
So gay I can barely say it with a
straight face, lookin' boy (Ha-ha!)

00:02:19
You're witnessin' a massacre
Like you're watching a church gathering
take place, lookin' boy

00:02:22
"Oy vey, that boy's gay!"—that's all
they say, lookin' boy

00:02:25
You get a thumbs up, pat on the back
And a "way to go" from your label every
day, lookin' boy

00:02:29
Hey, lookin' boy! What you say, lookin'
boy?
I get a "hell yeah" from Dre, lookin' boy

00:02:32
I'ma work for everything I have, never
asked nobody for shit
Get outta my face, lookin' boy!

00:02:35
Basically, boy, you're never gonna be
capable
Of keepin' up with the same pace, lookin'
boy, 'cause—

00:02:38
I'm beginnin' to feel like a Rap God, Rap
God
All my people from the front to the back
nod, back nod

00:02:45
The way I'm racin' around the track, call
me NASCAR, NASCAR
Dale Earnhardt of the trailer park, the
White Trash God

00:02:50
Kneel before General Zod
This planet's Krypton—no, Asgard, Asgard

00:02:54
So you'll be Thor, I'll be Odin
You rodent, I'm omnipotent

00:02:58
Let off, then I'm reloadin'
Immediately with these bombs I'm totin'

00:03:01
And I should not be woken
I'm the walkin' dead, but I'm just a
talkin' head, a zombie floatin'
But I got your mom deep-throatin'

00:03:08
I'm out my Ramen Noodle
We have nothin' in common, poodle
I'm a Doberman, pinch yourself in the arm
and pay homage, pupil

00:03:14
It's me, my honesty's brutal
But it's honestly futile if I don't
utilize what I do though

00:03:20
For good at least once in a while
So I wanna make sure somewhere in this
chicken scratch I scribble and doodle
enough rhymes

00:03:24
To maybe try to help get some people
through tough times
But I gotta keep a few punchlines
Just in case 'cause even you unsigned

00:03:30
Rappers are hungry lookin' at me like
it's lunchtime

00:03:32
I know there was a time where once I
Was king of the underground
But I still rap like I'm on my Pharoahe
Monch grind

00:03:37
So I crunch rhymes, but sometimes when
you combine

00:03:40
Appeal with the skin color of mine
You get too big and here they come tryin'
To censor you like that one line
I said on

00:03:45
"I'm Back" from The Mathers LP 1 when I
Tried to say I'll take seven kids from
Columbine

00:03:50
Put 'em all in a line, add an AK-47, a
revolver and a 9

00:03:53
See if I get away with it now that I
ain't as big as I was, but I'm

00:03:56
Morphin' into an immortal, comin' through
the portal
You're stuck in a time warp from 2004
though

00:04:01
And I don't know what the fuck that you
rhyme for
You're pointless as Rapunzel with fuckin'
cornrows

00:04:06
You write normal? Fuck being normal!
And I just bought a new raygun from the
future

00:04:10
Just to come and shoot ya, like when
Fabolous made Ray J mad

00:04:12
'Cause Fab said he looked like a fag at
Mayweather's pad
Singin' to a man while he played piano

00:04:16
Man, oh man, that was a 24/7 special on
the cable channel

00:04:19
So Ray J went straight to the radio
station
The very next day, "Hey Fab, I'ma kill
you!"

00:04:23
Lyrics comin' at you at supersonic speed
(J.J. Fad)

00:04:25
Uh, summa-lumma, dooma-lumma, you
assumin' I'm a human
What I gotta do to get it through to you
I'm superhuman?

00:04:28
Innovative and I'm made of rubber so that
anything you say is ricochetin' off of me
and it'll glue to you and

00:04:32
I'm devastating, more than ever
demonstrating
How to give a motherfuckin' audience a
feeling like it's levitating

00:04:35
Never fading, and I know the haters are
forever waiting
For the day that they can say I fell off,
they'll be celebrating

00:04:38
'Cause I know the way to get 'em
motivated
I make elevating music, you make elevator
music

00:04:42
"Oh, he's too mainstream."
Well, that's what they do when they get
jealous, they confuse it

00:04:45
"It's not hip-hop, it's pop,"—'cause I
found a hella way to fuse it

00:04:48
With rock, shock rap with Doc
Throw on "Lose Yourself" and make 'em
lose it

00:04:51
"I don't know how to make songs like that
I don't know what words to use."

00:04:54
Let me know when it occurs to you
While I'm rippin' any one of these verses
that versus you

00:04:58
It's curtains, I'm inadvertently hurtin'
you
How many verses I gotta murder to

00:05:01
Prove that if you were half as nice, your
songs you could sacrifice virgins too?!

00:05:04
Ugh, school flunky, pill junkie
But look at the accolades these skills
brung me

00:05:09
Full of myself, but still hungry
I bully myself 'cause I make me do what I
put my mind to

00:05:14
And I'm a million leagues above you
Ill when I speak in tongues, but it's
still tongue-in-cheek, fuck you

00:05:19
I'm drunk, so, Satan, take the fucking
wheel
I'ma sleep in the front seat

00:05:22
Bumpin' Heavy D and the Boyz, still
"Chunky but Funky"
But in my head there's something I can
feel tugging and struggling

00:05:29
Angels fight with devils and here's what
they want from me

00:05:32
They're askin' me to eliminate some of
the women hate
But if you take into consideration the
bitter hatred I have

00:05:36
Then you may be a little patient
And more sympathetic to the situation
And understand the discrimination

00:05:41
But fuck it, life's handin' you lemons?
Make lemonade then!
But if I can't batter the women

00:05:46
How the fuck am I supposed to bake them a
cake then?!
Don't mistake him for Satan; it's a fatal
mistake

00:05:50
If you think I need to be overseas and
take a vacation
To trip a broad, and make her fall on her
face and

00:05:55
Don't be a retard—be a king? Think not
Why be a king when you can be a God?
