[Verse 2: Eminem]

from Dr. Dre (Ft. Eminem) – Forgot About Dre Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Despite the popularity of The Slim Shady LP, a lyrical white rapper was too much of a novelty at the time for some people to even give it a listen. A lot of people heard Eminem for the first time on these 2001 verses, which was considered a true gangster rap album, not “white rap”. Since he did so well on this album with verses like this one and “What’s The Difference?”, it converted a lot of fans and made them give The SSLP a chance. That is what led to the huge popularity and massive record sales of The Marshall Mathers LP.
