When I die, they'll read this and say a genius wrote it

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

Meaning

As it is with many cases of art and literature, the work of an artist is often praised more looking back at it. People don’t see the true beauty of it as they’re living it and don’t realize the sheer brilliance that they’re actually witnessing. A person’s death also makes people to look deeper into their work which causes them to appreciate it more.
