"Merry Go Round"
Produced by: Eminem
Complex says: Another sing-songy hook that doesn't sound forced. Royce reflects on the ups and downs (okay fine, mostly downs) of his years in the rap game. "I have tried in vain...never had success," he laments. But he doesn't stop there. He goes in detail about how he went from being in love with basketball to being, "An ignorant ass nigga addicted to alcohol." He even talks about the infamous interview his manager Kino gave back in the day which inadvertently ruined Royce's relationship with Dr. Dre. "I went from writing for Dre/On the sideline, feeling forgot about, listening to 'Forgot About Dre.'" Royce lets it all out on here.
