Eminem Like Toy Soldiers

Eminem - Like Toy Soldiers

Eminem Like Toy SoldiersEminem releases his inspiring new single ‘Like Toy Soldiers’ on January 31st through Interscope/Shady records.

The single is taken from the million selling album ‘Encore’ which was released at the end of last year. ‘Like Toy Soldiers’ is the follow-up to ‘Just Lose It’ which topped the UK and US charts to give Eminem his fifth UK No1.

‘Like Toy Soldiers,’ which was produced by Eminem uses a sample from 80s pop star Martika’s single ‘Toy Soldiers’. Add this to a marching band-sounding drum loop and an incredible rap performance and you can see why this single has been picked as one of the highlights from ‘Encore’.

Once again Eminem tackles a subject close to his heart on the new single. On ‘Like Toy Soldiers’ Eminem calls for an end to the hip hop beefs he and his Shady Records family have had with other rappers over the past few years. “The song is about walking away,” says Eminem. “It’s like, look this is the last thing I’ve got to say, let me get this off my chest, and from our side, we’re walking away from it.”

Ja Rule's song that said that stuff about Hailie was called Loose Change (a freestyle).

The line was "Em, you claim your mother is a crackhead and Kim is a known slut/So what's Hailie gonna be when she grows up?"

Best song on his new album

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-17-2004 @ 10:53:39 PM
He keeps talking about a coffin - did anyone in his/another's crew die?

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-17-2004 @ 10:54:31 PM
cool song....i like the way Eminem is rapping faster on this cd

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-17-2004 @ 11:03:14 PM
He doesn't want it to resort to the 2Pac-Biggie level, because it could easily head that way with how personal the whole feud is.

AMAZING song. I'm not even a huge Eminem fan, but Like Toy Soldiers blows me away.

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-20-2004 @ 10:47:12 PM
This song is awesome. Definitely one of my favorites. I absolutely love the new CD

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-22-2004 @ 05:56:14 PM
This song is bigger than a beef between him and Ja... this is out to everyone he fought with. Particularly ICP, for any that don't know ICP, Eminem, and Kid Rock used to be little homies back in the day... then they got into a fight and split up and ICP and Eminem have been fighting for 11 years and now "Like Toy Soldiers" is his apology to everyone

THIS (Like Toy Soldiers) IS ONE OF EMINEM'S BEST SONGS, LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"It wasn't my intentions, my intentions was good/
I went through my whole career without ever mentionin' (?)"

I'm pretty sure the (?) is "Suge", referring to Suge Knight.

Encore is pretty weak, but this song is amazing.

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-25-2004 @ 05:57:29 AM
i was wondering about that (?)

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-27-2004 @ 11:25:42 PM
(?) = Suge

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-29-2004 @ 01:08:23 AM
He's talking about how out of respect for Dre, he will stay out of Dre's business with Suge, and he hasnt mentioned it his entire career, not even in the Like Toy Soldiers.

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-29-2004 @ 05:44:04 PM
ya thats why the ? is there cuz dre doesnt want him to get into it the ? is there for effict so he dosnt say the suge

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-29-2004 @ 05:44:25 PM
and yes someone in JAs crew was killed

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-30-2004 @ 07:31:52 AM
"It wasn't my intentions, my intentions was good
I went through my whole career without ever mentionin' (?)"
the (?) is definitely for suge, since he talks about it being dre's beef, and suge is the only logical thing that rhymes with "good"

damn, Eminem amazes me with every new song like this (Like Toy Soldiers), i personally think he is the greatest lyricist of ALL TIME. all respect to 2pac, but i think EMINEM is catchin up to that legacy, while they are both completely separate sides of the genre: pac was gangsta while Eminem is pretty much a white-pac who has learned from pac not to get involved that deeply in the game, as he shows even more in this song.

About Like Toy Soldiers on 11-30-2004 @ 07:52:42 AM
...also, another thing that amazes me with Eminem is how he can do a song like 'Like Toy Soldiers', then come up with 'Ass like that' next. goin from deeply serious to kiddishly hilarious without anyone thinkin any different is awesome.

In the Like Toy Soldiers video, Proof has been shot and the doctors are trying to save his life while Eminem is in the waiting room.

Has Proof had any beef with anyone that might've gotten him shot? I don't understand.

Like Toy Soldiers is an awesome video... complex and I love it.

Eminem - Like Toy Soldiers lyrics

Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down...

[Chorus]
Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down like toy soldiers
Bit by bit, torn apart, we never win
But the battle wages on for toy soldiers

[Verse 1]
I'm supposed to be the soldier who never blows his composure
Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders
I am never supposed to show it, my crew ain't supposed to know it
Even if it means goin' toe to toe with a Benzino it don't matter
I'd never drag them in battles that I can handle unless I absolutely have to
I'm supposed to set an example
I need to be the leader, my crew looks for me to guide 'em
If some shit ever just pop off, I'm supposed to be beside 'em
Now Ja said "I tried to squash it, it was too late to stop it"
There's a certain line you just don't cross and he crossed it
I heard him say Hailie's name on a song and I just lost it
It was crazy, this shit be way beyond some Jay-z and Nas shit
And even though the battle was won, I feel like we lost it
I spent too much energy on it, honestly I'm exhausted
And I'm so caught in it I almost feel I'm the one who caused it
This ain't what I'm in hip-hop for, it's not why I got in it
That was never my object for someone to get killed
Why would I wanna destroy something I help build
It wasn't my intentions, my intentions was good
I went through my whole career without ever mentionin' suge
Now it's just out of respect for not runnin' my mouth
And talkin' about something that I knew nothing about
Plus Dre told me stay out, this just wasn't my beef
So I did, I just fell back, watched and gritted my teeth
While he's all over t.v. down talkin' a man who literally saved my life
Like fuck it i understand this is business
And this shit just isn't none of my business
But still knowin' this shit could pop off at any minute cuz

[Chorus]
Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down like toy soldiers
Bit by bit, torn apart, we never win
But the battle wages on for toy soldiers

[Verse 2]
There used to be a time when you could just say a rhyme
And wouldn't have to worry about one of your people dyin'
But now it's elevated cuz once you put someone's kids in it
The shit gets escalated, it ain't just words no more is it?
It's a different ball game, callin' names and you ain't just rappin'
We actually tried to stop the 50 and Ja beef from happenin'
Me and Dre had sat with him, kicked it and had a chat with him
And asked him not to start it he wasn't gonna go after him
Until Ja started yappin' in magazines how we stabbed him
Fuck it 50 smash 'em, mash 'em and let him have it
Meanwhile my attention is pullin' in other directions
Some receptionist at The Source who answers phones at his desk
Has an erection for me and thinks that I'll be his ressurection
Tries to blow the dust off his mic and make a new record
But now he's fucked the game up cuz one of the ways I came up
Was through that publication the same one that made me famous
Now the owner of it has got a grudge against me for nothin'
Well fuck it, that mutherfucker can get it too, fuck him then
But I'm so busy being pissed off I don't stop to think
That we just inherited 50's beef with Murder Inc.
And he's inherited mine which is fine ain't like either of us mind
We still have soldiers that's on the front line
That's willing to die for us as soon as we give the orders
Never to extort us, strictly to show they support us
We'll maybe shout 'em out in a rap or up in a chorus
To show them we love 'em back and let 'em know how important it is
To have run ya nav and who sulked us up in our corners
Their loyalty to us is worth more than any award is
But I ain't tryna have none of my people hurt and murdered
There ain't words that I can't think of a perfecter way to word it
Then to just say that I love ya'll too much to see the virdict
I'll walk away from it all before I let it go any further
But don't get it twisted, it's not a plea that I'm coppin'
I'm just willin' to be the bigger man
If ya'll can quit poppin' off at your jaws with the knockin'
Cuz frankly I'm sick of talkin'
I'm not gonna let someone elses coffin rest on my conscience cuz

[Chorus]
Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down like toy soldiers
Bit by bit, torn apart, we never win
But the battle wages on for toy soldiers
