Follow you must, Rick Rubin my little Padawan"
“Yoda” is advising Eminem, and anyone else who wants to make it in the rap game, to listen to Rick Rubin’s advice; he knows what it takes to be successful. In Star Wars a Padawan is a Jedi Apprentice, so in rap terms it someone who hasn’t made it big time yet.
It’s important to note Rick Rubin and Eminem produced this track together. Eminem says he’s got crazy ideas (spasms) but admits Rubin is the more experienced and superior producer. Therefore, Eminem is the little Padawan whom is being taught by “the Yoda of Rap” (Rick Rubin).
The order of words is not regular, to match Yoda’s way of speaking.
