I'm canceling Christmas to gamble and risk this
Financial interest is the matter at hand

from Eminem – Never 2 Far Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Eminem literally meant what he said, his first major album ‘Infinite’ was released one month before Christmas, November 12th 1996.

Eminem’s daughter Halie Jade was born 25th December 1995, so this gamble was a risk that shows Eminem’s belief and passion for his art.
