Legacy
Eminem Lyrics


Tell me where to go, tell me what to do
I'll be right there for you
Tell me what to say, no matter if it's true
I'll say it all for you

I used to be the type of kid that would always think the sky is falling
Why am I so differently wired? Am I a martian?
What kind of twisted experiment am I involved in
Because I don't belong in this world
That's why I'm scoffing at authority, defying often
Flying off at the handle with my mom, no dad
So I'm non complying at home, at school I'm just shy and awkward
And no I don't need no goddamn psychologist
Trynna diagnose why I have all these underlying problems
Thinking he can try and solve them
I'm outside chalking up drawings on the sidewalk
And in the front drive talking to myself
Either that or inside hiding often to going somewhere quiet
Trying not to be noticed because I'm crying and sobbing
I had a bad day at school so I ain't talking
Some c***sucker shoved me into a f***ing locker
And he said that I eyeballed him

And if you fall, I'll get you there
I'll be your savior from
All the wars that are fought
Inside your world
Please have faith in my words

'Cause this is my legacy, legacy, here
This is my legacy, legacy, here
There's no guarantee, it's not up to me, you can only see
This is my legacy, legacy
Legacy, legacy

I used to be the type of kid that would always think the sky is falling
Why am I so differently wired in my nogging?
'Cause sporadic as my thoughts come, it's mind boggling
'Cause I obsess on everything and my mind is small s***
Bothers me but now my father, he said sayonara and then split
But I don't give a s*** I'm fine as long as
There's batteries in my Walkman nothing is the matter with me
S*** look at the bright side at least I ain't walking
I bike ride through the neighborhood of my apartment
Complex on a ten speed which I've acquired parts that I
Found in the garbage, a frame and put tires on it
Headphones on, straight ahead and kids tryin to start s***
But if this is all there is for me life offers
Why bother even try and put up a fight, it's nonsense
But I think a light bulb just lit up in my conscience
What about those rhymes I've been jottin'
They are kinda giving me confidence
Instead of tryina escape through my comics,
Why don't I just blast a little something like Onyx
To put me in the mood to wanna fight and write songs that
Say what I wanna say to the kid that said that I eyeballed him
Grab hold of my balls like that's right fight's on b****
Who would've knew from the moment I turned the mic on
I could be iconic, and my conquest is
Is word to Phife Dawg from a Tribe Called Quest

This is my legacy, legacy, here
This is my legacy, legacy, here
There's no guarantee, it's not up to me, you can only see
This is my legacy, legacy
Legacy, legacy

I used to be the type of kid that would always think the sky is falling
Now I think the fact that I'm differently wired's awesome
'Cause if I wasn't I wouldn't be able to work
Words like this and connect lines like crosswords
And use my enemy's words as strength
To try and draw from, and get inspired off em
'Cause all my life I was told and taught I am not s***
By you wack f***ing giant sacks of lying dog s***
Now you shut up b****, I am talking
Thought I was full of horses*** and now
You f***ing worship the ground in which I am walking
Me against the world so what? I'm Brian Dawkins
Versus the whole 0 and 16 Lions offense
So bring on the Giants Falcons and Miami Dolphins
It's the body bag game b**** I'm supplying coffins
'Cause you dicks, butt kiss, a bunch of Brian Baldingers
You gon die a ball licker I've been diabolical
With this dialogue since 99 Rawkus
You don't respect the legacy I leave behind y'all can
Suck a dick, the day you beat me pigs'll fly out my a**
And a flying saucer full of Italian sausage
The most high exalting and I ain't halting
Till I die of exhaustion inhale my exhaust fumes
The best part about me is I am not you
I am me, I'm a fire marshall and this is my

Legacy, legacy, here
This is my legacy, legacy, here
There's no guarantee, it's not up to me, you can only see
This is my legacy, legacy
Legacy, legacy

Iggie and Pine Reaction Time!

This song makes me relate so much that I did the challenge of makin one song that rhymes only one word and this is it

“The Fiend”
How come now I only have nightmares where’s my dream
I got scared of life so I turned mean
To protect myself and all of my things
Y everyone else grew up I remained small and lean
They became fearless and their lives were shaped beautifully
So what in the world happened to me
Wanted to be a cool kid that was good at comedy
But no matter how hard I tried I wasn’t funny
I kept gettin made fun of by the bullies
And yea I got angry
But when I told them somethin back I got called the bully
They made me think i that I was the bad guy really
So I set out to be the baddest guy ever seen
So I turned into a liar and a thief
My mind was a computer with a bad search history
How come all of it was so dirty
And I was always hurting
All of my friends were dividing
Takin different sides it was never ending
They made me make half of my friends my enemies
But there’s always two sides to every story
Y was my life so exciting
Y couldn’t I have a life that is boring
Go to sleep at night wake up in the morning
Then do that all over again that evening
When it became to much I resorted to singing
Makin songs abt love even though I had no feelings
There was somethin inside of me tingling
Sayin that there’s somethin evil to be bringing
So I avoided the drama and got into controversy
From sittin on the sidewalk to paddling
Things got even worse when I became a teen
Because I was given new opportunities
I’ve done so many terrible things
In the land of sinners I’ve been deemed
The most unholy
And in the land of the goodie goodies
I’ve been named the most unworthy
I wish I could go back and redeem
But I can’t because I am the fiend
But very recently
I have had a blessing
And it’s in the form of Drippy
He is everything
Exactly
A dumb joke I created is now it’s own personality
And now it seems
As if the fiend and drippy r caught in between
A war that will never be stopping
Most days I’m drippy and happy
But don’t bring out the fiend or things will end badly

My feelings behind this is that there r two sides to a person. The good and bad. I can relate to this song because I’ve just now recently accepted who I am and I am now starting to get popular at school. My stepdad and mom tortured me and my friends in fifth grade started to split and made me choose between them. So this is how I felt. Drippy is a nickname that I’ve been given at school and whenever I take on the persona of Drippy everyone likes me but whenever my dark side or The Fiend shows everyone hates it. My mom and stepdad r still tearin me up inside in ways I don’t wanna get into but thank u Eminem a true genius. Thank u.

@Dutch Van Der Linde I don't talk a lot either, but I also talk a lot of shit. I write though, I started very recently. I'm 18 and I've "released" one song. While it's not relatable, it was a test of my skill. Go find what you're good at and try it.

First people rhymed syllables. Then someone started to rhyme words or phrases. After that some crazy motherker tries to rhyme the entire line or sentence. Now, we have Eminem who just rhymed the entire verses.

@TooRealForMost Ever thought about the fact that they’re RAP fans? And not just ”Em fans” and they simply like Eminems music cause he’s a good rapper? You got your opinion and you’re entitled to it, but the way you and lil woodie wood act is like me calling you retarded for liking vanilla more than chocolate, shit doesn’t make sense. So just listen to the music you like and do you.

TooRealForMost

@Bulten VG I've had many discussions with Em fans on YouTube. And most seem to know very little about rap. All they listen to is Em and his counterparts (tech, logic, Royce, Joyner etc)

Bulten VG

@TooRealForMost And you too, just cause we like Slim’s music doesn’t mean we don’t know others, you don’t seem too real after all.
