Got 'em still on the fence whether to picket
Being on the fence means to be undecided and uncertain about something. So Em’s critics aren’t sure if they want to rip apart his new work, because they know that they might look foolish if he ends up putting out a classic. His goal is to get all the critics that are “on the fence” about him back on his side.
There are two meanings for “picket”:
- The critics can either protest him with picket signs. Em is no stranger to picket signs for his wicked rhymes.
- Or Pick it, as in become fans of Em’s music and play it.
Also refers to a picket fence, which ties in with the “on the fence” line.
