My assignment since he said retirement
Hiding behind 8 Mile and The Chronic
Gets rich but dies rhyming
A nice diss at 50 Cent. 50 claimed he would retire if Kanye West’s Graduation outsold his own album, which it did.
Nas thinks that 50 is supported by “Mr. Chronic” (aka Dr. Dre; The Chronic was Dre’s first album), and “Mr. 8 Mile” (8 Mile is where Eminem is from in Detroit as well as the title of his semi-autobiographical movie).
Of course, 50 already has plenty of money.. but his rhymes are dead (play on the name of 50’s breakthrough album, Get Rich or Die Trying).
