So the FCC won't let me be
The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) regulates interstate and international communications, including radio. The FCC won’t let him play his songs; they edit and censor them.
Notice the beautiful I assonance here, beginning 4 verses earlier, “the fCC won’t let mE bE/or let mE bE mE, so let mE sEE/they try to shut mE down on mTV/but it fEEls so emptY wIthout mE”.
Most rappers are told to self-edit their lyrics when performing on live TV, but Eminem refuses, saying that it’s the censors' job to bleep it out. So occasionally a few words will sneak by the censors and you’ll hear Eminem swear on national TV. The FCC doesn’t take too kindly to this, and Em claims that they are trying to sabotage him by not allowing his music to be played, to try and get back at him. They have issued fines for playing unedited Eminem songs on the radio.
