The song is from 2009. During that time MM was going through some crap - most notably losing his buddy Proof
He went on a long hiatus without putting anything into the booth. Depression, sleeping pills, methadone, suicide attempt... a very long downward
He went to treatment got clean and dropped a double disc - but the execs made it into 2 albums: Relapse and Refill. Both discs were dark in nature
which represented his demons.
Then came Recovery. Where he seen the light and changed his ways.
Anyways, in my opinion, The public wanted Em. But he was dealing with his inner turmoil, he was even thinking about leaving rap all together.
So he gave the fans everything he had in those discs- both the good and the ugly...the very, very ugly.
I think Relapse and Recovery were his best work. So it's no surprise that people are still talking about it, he did his job perfectly!
