50 Cent's "Patiently Waiting"
50 Cent's Get Rich Or Die Tryin' arrived with the co-sign of Dr. Dre and Eminem, so it was only right that Em give the Aftermath/Shady signee the lyrical endorsement he deserved. His 16 on "Patiently Waiting" finds the rapper finding the common ground between himself and 50, as well as sending a warning to those who may be underestimating the Shady empire.
Take some Big and some Pac and you mix 'em up in a pot
Sprinkle a little Big L on top; what the fuck do you got?
You got the realest and illest killers tied up in a knot
The juggernauts of this rap shit, like it or not
It's like a fight to the top just to see who'd die for the spot
You put your life in this, nothing like surviving a shot
Y'all know what time it is, soon as 50 signs on this dot
Shit, what you know about death threats, ‘cause I get a lot
