On the surface it may seem like a scheme
Or some sort of scam for me to get some damn sympathy
But that's the last thing I need
Is for people to walk around feelin' sorry for me

from Eminem – The Apple Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Em often vents about his problems; which may seem like a ploy to act on ethos (or emotions of the crowd) but instead he’s just being real, and saying what comes to mind, the last thing he wants is sympathy.
