    The song is loosely based on a true event that happened at St. Andrew Hall Detroit in 2001.

    Eminem and House of Pain rapper Everlast had an ongoing feud, when an altercation broke out among fans (according to news organizations), but bouncers at the club claim it was D12's posse.

    Here's testimony from one of the bouncers that night, Andrew Schuster:

    "It was about 14 gigantic guys, dressed in black--sweatshirts, boots, jackets, everything. At first, I thought they were part of the act, because it was so professional, you know? It was like [Public Enemy's drill team] the S1Ws."

    But after assaulting two security guards at the front door, the ninja like posse rushed the stage. Nathan Keeler, 24, the band's house-assigned gofer for the day, quickly evacuated Everlast to a walk-in freezer downstairs. The intruders formed a circle around two staff members and began beating them into oblivion. Schuster, who was tending bar, grabbed a fellow bartender and breached the circle. "We got Brandon out, but we couldn't get Arrick Lanier," Schuster says. "He was unconscious." Lanier had been bashed in the skull with the iron base of a mic stand; he was carried out on a blood-soaked stretcher. When staffer Ryan Murphy entered the fray, one of the assailants revealed a pistol in his waistband, warning him off. Then, at some invisible signal, the goons stopped, turned, and left.

    Mike Danner, the club's genera manager, arranged for Everlast to receive a police escort out of town (the club was located in the slums of Detroit, the hood Eminem grew up in).

    Danner says he knows the assailants' identities but will refer to them only as "diehard fans of D12, the people they grew up with." He adds: "When you talk shit about them, they will come and get you. It could be a year later, in your own town; they will get you." D12 were unavailable for comment

    No shots were actually fired, and Detroit Police responded and questioned witnesses, but nobody could directly implicate D12.

    Although the song has a lot of discrepancies from the stories of others, we know it's about this incident because:

    1) In Verse 5, Kon Artis raps "it's Friday night", which is when the story above happened
    2) In the first verse, Bizarre raps "And I'm tryna make it to the St. Andrew's door", so we know this is where it took place

    The only other incident involving Eminem in an altercation at St. Andrew's in 1999, when he hijacked the stage from a scheduled performer and was asked to leave by management, nearly starting a riot, but it was not nearly as serious as the altercation in 2001. D12 had no other incidents at St. Andrew's, so it's pretty clear the 2002 altercation is what they're rapping about, although they exaggerate the events in "One Shot, 2 Shot"

    Eminem and D12 are robbing a bar. Each plays a total different role. Some protect they bar, some are running, and some are robbing. We'll never know who won this heist!
