This song was written in response to Biggie’s death, and all throughout the song multiple references to the rap game, and rap related deaths are used. Eminem uses his aggressive writing style to execute heavy rhymes that exaggerate the seriousness of the rap game. Look for mentions to facts, like the opening words, “It has been said,” because it shows the opinions as not only that of Eminem’s, but also of many others throughout the industry.
