(Eminem speaking)
You know, people just don't, people just don't see how much work
is really involved in this rap shit
I didn't know it, I didn't see it
I never saw it until I was actually in it
You really gotta be in it
to understand what it's like
But you always gotta
people always gotta see your smile
You always gotta put on that fake
You know wha' I'm sayin'?
Like, no matter what you just been through
you just gotta be right.

(B-Real)
So you wanna be a rap superstar?
And live large
A big house. Five cars, the rent charged.
Comin' up in the world.
Don't trust nobody got to look over your shoulder constantly.

I remember the days when I was a young kid growing up
Looking in the mirror, dreaming about blowin' up
The rock crowds. Make money. Chill with the honeys.
Sign autographs and whatever the people want from me.
Shit, It's funny how impossible dreams manifest
And the games that be comin' with it
Nevertheless, you got to go for the gusto
But you don't know about the blood, sweat, and tears and
Losin' some of your peers.

And losin' some of yourself to the years past, gone by
Hopefully it don't manifest for the wrong guy
Egomaniac and the brainiac don't know how to act
shit deep
48 track studio gangsta mack sign the deal
Think he's gonna make a mil but never will
'Til he crosses over, still
Fillin' your head with fantasies
Come with me
Show the sacrifice it takes to make the G's

You wanna be a rock superstar in the biz
And take shit from people who don't know what it is
I wish it was all fun and games
But the price of fame is high
And some can't pay the way
Feel trapped in
What you rappin' about?
Tell me what happened when you lost clout?
The route you took started collapsing
No fans. No fame. No respect. No change. No women and
Everybody shits on your name.

So you wanna be a rap superstar?
And live large
A big house. Five cars, the rent charged.
Comin' up in the world.
Don't trust nobody got to look over your shoulder constantly.

(Noreaga speaking)
When you sign to a record label
you don't know you sign your life over
and these white boys don't care about you
'cause the minute you fall off
They'll find another Noreaga
and they'll find another Capone-n-Noreaga
and they'll find another B-Real
So you need to just keep
Stack your chips up
Do what you gotta do while you're hot
And mafuckin' get out the game
Stick to the drug game is even worse
Because in the drug game if somebody jerk you
You could shoot 'em and kill 'em, and if in this game somebody jerk you
you gotta be humble.

(Eminem speaking)
No matter what you just been through
Shit has gotta be right
You gotta approach people
You gotta be on the up and up
And everything gotta be all good
When you see someone slap hands with em
You know what i'm sayin give em a pound
Or whatever it is
But you always gotta act like it ain't shit.

My own son don't know me
I'm chillin' in a hotel room, lonely
But I thank God I'm with my homies
But sometimes I wish I was back home
But only no radio or video's gonna show me no love
They're phony
Got to hit the road solely so the record gets pushed by Sony
I'm in the middle like Monie
And the press say that my own people disown me
And the best way back to keep your head straight
Never inflate the cranium
They're too worried about them honeys at the Palladium
Who just wanna cling on, swing on, and so on
Go on fall off - the ho's fall off
To the next rap superstar, with no shame
Give him a year and they'll be right out the game
The same as the last one who came before him
Gained fame started getting' ignored
I warned him, assured him
This ain't easy
Take it from the weazy
Sleazy people want to be so cheesy
They're fucking evil...
