Songfacts®:

  • This song deals with the business success created by the partnership between Eminem and Dr. Dre. As rap artists began taking control of their finances, their business success became a source for lyrical content, often replacing brags about their vocal skills.
  • The line about Eminem and Dr. Dre being "the most feared duet since me and Elton played career Russian Roulette" refers to the 2001 Grammy Awards when Eminem performed "Stan" with Elton John. >>
