Shit Hits The Fan

« Shit Hits The Fan » gives you another taste of Eminem’s collaboration with Obie Trice and Dr Dre.
The song from Obie’s album « Cheers » makes the enemies of the Shady camp look totally ridiculous. They are pictured as big cowards. Ja Rule is targetted in front line.

The Shady camp is all about loyalty and Eminem knows that his fans are, most of the time, genuine and loyal people. A crowd of zillion who are ready to back him as well as the Shady camp:

« What you gonna do when shit hits the fan
Are you gonna stand and fight like a man?
Will you be as hard as you say you are?
Or you gonna run and go get your bodyguard?
I said What you gonna do when shit hits the fan?
Are you gonna stand and fight like a man?
And show us you’re as hard as you say you are?
Or you gonna run and go get your bodyguard? »

Dr Dre explains the struggle of some rappers to get their own label. His verse is also a clear allusion to his former deceased fellow Easy E who founded Ruthless Records he founded by using the money he had made from drug deals :

« Niggaz is so gangsta, Niggaz is thugs
Niggaz’ll spend their whole life peddlin drugs
Slanging dope in hopes of one day bein able
To own their own label and give the game up
Some niggaz came up, some just didn’t
That’s just the way it is, if it ain’t meant it, it just isn’t
Some niggaz’ll get money and pay niggaz to back em
So they can act up, feel comfortable, and rap tough
And that’s as backwards, cuz them niggaz just gone keep coming back
And that’s when extortion happens
You struggle to get free, I know how this shit be
You deal with anything to live legitimately
But you gone find if you do get in this industry
It’s best to be business with me than against me… »

Dr Dre makes his opponents look ridiculous. Ja Rule is targetted in particular. Eminem’s producer is a giant in the music industry. Matter of fact : Ja Rule is really far « under his radar ». Ja Rule may be obsessed with Tupac, Dr Dre knew him personally. He used to collaborate with Tupac.
Ja Rule has no credibility as a gangsta, neither is he credible lyrically. His lyrics are weak and grammatically incorrect. What should we think of a man who cannot even spell the name of the black leaders on his current CD « Blood In My Eye » and who thinks he’s in competition with the pioneer of gangsta rap ? That’s laughable.

Obie Trice sends warnings to all of them enemies who run their mouth, but who appear to be cowards in real life. Eminem’s diss against Ja Rule is a fist against him and certainly a loss for his career. A lot of people in the world of hip hop have turned against him.
The last warning is about the fans’ reactions. What will the adversaries of the Shady camp do, will they stand up like real men or search for some protection from their bodyguards?
Many Eminem fans (including me) have felt offended by the Murder Inc disses against the whole Shady camp. Many of us Shady soldiers are ready to back the Shady camp.

But maybe Ja Rule and his camp should really fear some “crazed Stans” who might harm them for real, as Obie sarcastically points it out:

“Now take it like a man and shake it off. Damn
And quit tellin all these magazines your plans
How you gone slap up my mans, you’re ficticious
Nigga, we send Stan to come murder your bitches…”

« Shit Hits The Fan » is a track that is definitly worth listening to.
Shit Hits the Fan Lyrics

[Dr. Dre]
Yeah
Yo, let’s bring it

[Chorus – Eminem]
What you gonna do when shit hits the fan
Are you gonna stand and fight like a man?
Will you be as hard as you say you are?
Or you gonna run and go get your bodyguard?
I said What you gonna do when shit hits the fan?
Are you gonna stand and fight like a man?
And show us you’re as hard as you say you are?
Or you gonna run and go get your bodyguard?

[Verse 1 – Dr. Dre]
Niggaz is so gangsta, Niggaz is thugs
Niggaz’ll spend their whole life peddlin drugs
Slanging dope in hopes of one day bein able
To own their own label and give the game up
Some niggaz came up, some just didn’t
That’s just the way it is, if it ain’t meant it, it just isn’t
Some niggaz’ll get money and pay niggaz to back em
So they can act up, feel comfortable, and rap tough
And that’s as backwards, cuz them niggaz just gone keep coming back
And that’s when extortion happens
You struggle to get free, I know how this shit be
You deal with anything to live legitimately
But you gone find if you do get in this industry
It’s best to be business with me than against me
Niggaz get behind mics and ain’t even MC’s
Niggaz get on MTV just to diss me
This shit don’t even piss me off
I’m laughin all the way to the bank
Watchin the satellite from a Bentley
You niggaz don’t even got a car
You’re so far under my radar
I don’t even know who the fuck you are
To tell you to suck my dick while I’m pissin
I don’t even listen to your shit to know who the fuck I’m dissin
The media just feeds into these feuds
Tryin to add fuel to the fire. This little nigga, Ja Rule
Talking bout he’s gonna slap me. Nigga please
You gotta jump and swing up to hit me in the knees
I laugh at these magazines when they interview em
All they doin is making fake threats to us through em
And pussy you’re not Pac, I knew em
Pac was a real nigga, you just a fuckin insult to em
It’s too bad we had to fallout before he passes
If he could see this shit now, he’d be whoopin your ass
You’re talkin to a pioneer who engineered this shit for 19 years
Who you got in your ear? I don’t even gotta say it, the fans know
Quit tryin to be tough, nigga, you look like a asshole

[Chorus – Eminem]

[Verse 2 – Obie Trice]
They say why don’t we increase the peace
The only peace increased is that which deletes your peeps
Cuz niggaz run mouths but they don’t run streets
Till that 4 5 will cease the speech
Yeah it’s a shame how the beef’ll creep
Could’ve reached the peep, now you’re left with a horrible leak
I’m tryin to be as bleak with my speech as possible
Just in case a nigga tryin to throw me an obstacle
Nigga, I’m not boxin you, I’m hospitable
I put you in a hospital, that’s how I get at you
Let the doc op on you, he don’t rid you?
You back on the streets? I send another hit at you
This is not a hypocritical issue
I will critical condition your tissue
Give a fuck if all ten of them wit you
I throw an extra ten of them missiles
Turn gangstas into gentlemen vicko
And ever since Eminem dissed you
I swear I see the women and bitch in you
All this bickering back and forth over who signs who
Curtis, pull your skirt up, nigga, you got murdered
Now take it like a man and shake it off. Damn
And quit tellin all these magazines your plans
How you gone slap up my mans, you’re ficticious
Nigga, we send Stan to come murder your bitches

[Chorus – Eminem]

Hahahahahaha
Yeah, yeah
Go out behind all the gangstas you want, nigga
Matter fact, go get every gangsta from every hood
In the United States of America to back you, nigga
Ain’t nobody ridin wit you
You can’t see that?
Fell off, nigga
Hahahahahaha
Damn, damn
Shady slash Aftermath, motherfucker
2003 to infinite (Yeahah)
