How many records you expecting to sell
After your second LP sends you directly to jail?
If Eminem lived in Europe, this might be the case (due to hate speech laws). Also, going to jail increases a rapper’s cred and sales, just so long as you don’t over do it (cough cough Shyne)
Oddly enough, Eminem almost ended up in jail right after the release of this album when he allegedly pistol-whipped a bouncer. That story is explained in detail on this line from his song Sing for the Moment.
