Slaughter tracks, I done put my two dimes and a nickel in this shit
I’m coming to get that quarter back
Eminem brought Royce (Nickel) into the mainstream as well as his group Slaughterhouse. Slaughterhouse is made up of 4 members and they refer to themselves as “a quarter. He helped the rap game and elevated it to a new level. He uses a triple entendre on the next like "coming to get that quarter back” which could mean:
He is going after the key players in the rap game like a quarterback in football.
He is getting money for signing these great artists and introducing them to mainstream
Eminem put his “two dimes and a nickel” into the rap game when he first started off. Now he’s coming to take it back.
The line “I done put my two dimes and a nickel in this shit” could also refer to Eminem signing both 50 Cent and Obie Trice to Shady Records and introducing them into the rap game. Both are arguably the two biggest signees to Shady Records and both managed to sell 1,000,000 copies in the first week for their respective debut albums Get Rich or Die Trying and Cheers (hence why they’re dimes).
