Lyrics Comparison (Intro Section Only)

"Lose Yourself":

Look, if you had
One shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment, would you capture it
Or just let it slip?


Yo, if you could just, for one minute
Or one split second in time, forget everything
Everything that bothers you, all your problems
Everything, and follow me

MTF Omega-6's agents Rodriguez and ████████

At the same time, Luis Edgardo Resto, Jeffrey Graves and Marshall Bruce Mathers III were all individually abducted and interrogated by MTF Omega-6 ("Got Your Back").

Neither Resto, Graves or Mathers were aware of SCP-XXXX or SCP-XXXX-1's existence. However, Marshal B. Mathers recognized that the rhyme schemes from SCP-XXXX-1 are similar to his style. He also confessed that he spoke with what he thought to be [DATA EXPUNGED] while under the influence in 199█, which later inspired him to write the intro to "Slim Shady EP"3 and his song "My Darling."4 All three musicians were returned to their homes after class-A amnestics were applied.

Note: After Marshall B. Mathers' confession of possible contact with SCP-████, the O5 Council is considering classifying him as a PoI.

Since its release, SCP-XXXX has been recategorized as safe, as SCP-XXXX instances possess no inherent anomalous properties to date and the public has accepted all instances prior to 24/11/2014 as "leaks."

On the following interview, Marshall B. Mathers admitted to possessing no recollection of making SCP-XXXX-1. However, due to his history of drug abuse, the loss of memory does not raise any suspicion from his fans or the general population.
