    It doesn’t necessarily ruin it for me but I feel the Em line in Till I collapse bout him not rapping, the fire dying at 30 or whatever would be a better fit there.

    The line does make me semi-sad I guess since that’s right around the age Em started to go way downhill for good.

    Anyways, Pac lines could be another example since he talks so much bout his death, getting killed etc.. but doesn’t really ruin the song for me anyways. The paranoia, realness etc is part of who Pac was..

    I like Em knew his was at his peak when he said that on the em show. He just didnt know how hard he was gonna fall off lol.

    "And if you got a daughter older then 15, I'ma r--- her
    Take her on the livin' room floor, right there in front of you
    Then ask you seriously, whatchu wanna do?
    Frustratin', isn't it? Wanna k--- me, but I'ma k--- you
    Now watch me f--- just a little while longer, please, will you?" - DMX

    This lyric would freak people the f--- out now, s--- was hard back then when everyone was saying crazy s---.

    I agree that the biggie line is a bit ironic considering 9/11 but the WTC did get bombed in 93... idk that ones tricky. any drake line about being a dead beat dad qualifies here tho lmao.
