It’s F.Y.I, if ya ain't knowing
If you didn’t know that his heart was cold, well, now you know.
(F.Y.I = For Your Information)
Very similar to the famous Biggie line.
Also notice the technical nuances in this line:
If you break down the sounds and listen to his pronunciation, “If ya ain’t” carries the rhythm of “F.Y.I” until the “I”, which is replaced by “knowing”. Thus this serves as a great transition line for the next rhyme scheme, where “knowing” becomes the dominant rhyme:
It’s F.Y.I, if ya ain’t knowing
What, go with you? Where? Nah, ain’t going.
Oh wait, you wanna date? Oh, well in that case ho, it’s June 8th, oh! and
Kinda like Beethoven composin' a symphony of hate
So much hate woven into these raps
Bear in mind that a lot of the words highlighted don’t rhyme by themselves, but Em manipulates their sound to make them rhyme. This is a characteristic feature of Eminem, and he’s talked about it in this interview:
