But, lyrically, I never hear a peep, not even a whisper
Rappers better stay clear of me, bitch,

from Eminem – Rhyme or Reason Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

When Eminem is on the mic, he screams and curses and says everything that comes to his mind because he knows that if anyone calls him out on it he is good enough to respond to the diss and destroy them. But other rappers aren’t secure enough to really speak their mind around him and risk getting dissed, so they would rather just go silent than risk a battle with Slim Shady.
