Shit what you know about death threats, cause I get a lot
Shady Records was eighty seconds away from the towers
Some cowards fucked with the wrong building, they meant to hit ours

from 50 Cent (Ft. Eminem) – Patiently Waiting Lyrics on Rap Genius


The death threat mention is a reference to the 2002 rumor that Al-Qaeda sent him death threats after he dressed up as Osama Bin Laden in his “Without Me” video — this ties in nicely with the next couplet, in which Em references the September 11 attacks.

Em would during this period occasionally reference the fact that his record company’s offices were located near the Twin Towers. 50 also mentioned the 9/11 incident in the beginning of his first verse.
