My label hyped me up and told me I had about twelve hits
They lied, cause when my fucking album dropped, I didn't sell shit
Ill Mind of Hopsin 3 by Hopsin

Hopsin used to be signed to Ruthless Records, a label run by Eazy-E’s widow.

The Source magazine (the most prominent hip hop magazine at the time) infamously gave The Marshall Mathers LP a two-mic rating (out of five mics) while nearly every other magazine gave it a perfect or near-perfect rating. This doesn’t phase Em, because he isn’t writing for the critics — he’s using hip hop primarily as an outlet for his emotions, thoughts, and ideas

I'm trying to grow it back again
It was an accident
I had my back against the fan
And chopped it off in Amsterdam
If I Get Locked Up by Funkmaster Flex (Ft. Big Kap, Dr. Dre & Eminem)

Em explains his missing hair away by saying he was in the Dutch city of Amsterdam (presumably getting stoned, as weed is famously legal there) and got too high and nearly got his head chopped off by a fanblade (Em also mentions decapitation by fan blade again later in the song…)
