Eminem raps about his struggles to live up to the expectations from his fans who views him as one of the greatest rappers of all time. “It’s the curse of the standard / That the first of the Mathers disk set / Always in search of the verse that I haven’t spit yet / Will this step just be another misstep / To tarnish whatever the legacy, love or respect I’ve garnered? / The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless,” Em raps.
