Cause when you're too nice you're underground
That's funny cause Eminem gave me money for not dumbing down

from Slaughterhouse – Funkmaster Flex Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In hip-hop today, there is a divide between “Mainstream” and “Underground” emcees.

A lot of times great emcees won’t be signed because they are too complex and won’t sell easily.

Eminem signed Slaughterhouse to his label Shady Records for a huge sum of money.

Some say it wouldn’t of happened had it not been for Royce Da 5'9’s personal history with Eminem.

I guess it doesn’t matter now though does it?

(Slaughterhouse with Eminem)
