But I'm so busy being pissed off, I don't stop to think
That we just inherited 50's beef with Murder Inc
And he's inherited mine, which is fine, ain't like either of us mind

from Eminem – Like Toy Soldiers Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This highlights a main theme of the song: looking back, Eminem realizes that these beefs were happening so fast and frequently that he got swept up in them

While busy with Benzino, Em finds that the feud between 50 Cent and Ja Rule, which began before Eminem and 50 Cent knew each other, now involves him. 50 is also getting involved in his fights. This isn’t a big deal to either of them, they aren’t exactly passive personalities

The whole thing turned into a Murder Inc. (Ja Rule’s record label) vs. Aftermath (Dre/Em/50’s label) brawl, and almost became some kind of mini East Coast/West Coast war
