Fuck you, hip hop, I'm leaving you, my life sentence is served, bitch and it's just...

from Eminem – 25 To Life Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Similar to how Common reveals he is talking about hip-hop in “I Used To Love H.E.R.”, but he puts his Shady twist on it, instead of talking about how he feels bad for what hip-hop has gone through, he hates it for what it’s done to him.

He also goes into why this song is entitled “25 to Life”. In criminal law, a “life sentence” means you serve 25 years, then get parole (unless you do something CRAZY in jail).
Well, Em has been rapping for 25 years. Finito-Benito!
