It was no surprise that this came as a shock to the other party-goers when Walt said this, as most cancer patients would be incredibly thankful to hear that they’ve gone into remission. Walt’s expression of self-pity seems to stem from his desire to keep going with the drug manufacturing business he’s in. Had his prognosis been negative, he could have kept turning out pounds of crystal and provided for his family without any future worries, but the positive results now means that he’ll have to stop soon — something he doesn’t want to do.
This situation was foreshadowed in the previous episode. “4 Days Out,” when Walt see his reflection in a towel dispenser and starts punching it, signifying that he doesn’t like what he’s becoming. His want to die is referenced later in the series with the episode “Fly.”

The longest track, and one involving the most samples, “Workinonit” poses as a nice introduction to one of Dilla’s most emotional and meaningful works, Donuts. Four out of the six samples in this song are used in beats later on in the album.
