I need a doctor, doctor to bring me back to life
It used to be Em that got help from Dre. The chorus represents Eminem crying out for help to ‘bring him back to life’ (bring his career back) from his old mentor, but in truth, as Dre answers later in his verse, it’s Dre that needs the help now.
The voice also represents the hip hop industry, which needs a metaphorical doctor, as well as the good old Gs like Dre himself, to bring it back because real hip hop is dying.
Also a play on Dr. Dre’s name.
