A cinematic song detailing the relationship between Eminem and Dr. Dre.
Em talks about Dre being stuck creatively, unable to make music the way he used to due to his grief and depression. Em, who went through this himself after his best friend died in 2006, is making a passionate attempt to get through to him so Dre will start believing in his own abilities again. Dre is a “perfectionist”, but the legend is currently stuck in the mud and Eminem is afraid for him. Eminem references his own struggles to make it and Dre’s assistance, and also cites the super-producer’s personal troubles including the death of his son, Andre Young Jr.
Dre then rhymes about the pair’s history, from “Guilty Conscience” to the present.
