So reach in your billfolds, for ten ducats
Ducats is slang for money, not a reference to the medieval currency.
Eminem, according to this interview with Dru Ha from Duckdown, was initially going to sign with Duckdown Entertainment and had planned/had meetings with Dru Ha.
The next day he came back with Paul Rosenberg and we spoke some more and I said look me and Buck would like to try and get something done, let us take this to Priority and they told us what they were looking for and to their credit they had already had that CD floating around through a company called Web Entertainment so they kinda knew what they were sitting on, they knew they had something, and they weren’t asking for a regular record deal, they wanted a pretty good amount for a new artist, they wanted something that was a little more than your standard, so we really needed to go to Priority and get it and it was like right around October, fourth quarter, and long short they wouldn’t approve the budget.“ — Dru Ha
