Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders
I ain't never supposed to show it, my crew ain't supposed to know it

from Eminem – Like Toy Soldiers Lyrics on Rap Genius


If his crew (D12) knew that Em, their de facto leader, finds the pressure of fame and rap battles oppressive, they might lose confidence in his leadership abilities and be negatively affected by it
