And if you fall, I'll catch you there
I'll be your savior from all the wars
That are fought inside your world
Please have faith in my words

from Eminem – Legacy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is the voice of Eminem speaking to his fans, as it becomes clearer that is what his legacy refers to at the end of the song. He is urging his fans to have faith in his words and music to aid in any personal battles that we may have.

It’s also the voice of rap, which is often symbolized as a woman (thus the choice of using Polina), assuring Em that she’ll get him through all the adversity he faces. The whole song is about his childhood of being bullied and misunderstood and how hip hop saved him from “all the wars inside his world”, a point only accentuated by the bridge.

This also symbolizes the voices of Dr. Dre, Proof, his manager Paul Rosenberg, Elton John and generally everyone who helped him through the tough times—now he wants to do the same for his fans.
