"Shit Hits The Fan" is the second single to be released from American rapper Obie Trice's debut studio album, Cheers. The song features vocals from Dr. Dre and Eminem. The song is essentially a diss track aimed towards Ja Rule, recorded in response to several lines from Ja Rule's song "Loose Change" which attacked Dr. Dre, Eminem, and 50 Cent among others.

Background[edit]

The track is essentially a track which disses Ja Rule. Examples of disses from Dr. Dre in the track are: "This little nigga, Ja Rule, talking bout he's gonna slap me, nigga please, you gotta jump and swing up to hit me at the knees." At the end of the song, Obie spoke over the beat telling Ja Rule to, "Go behind all the gangsta's you want. Matter of fact get every gangsta from every hood in the United States of America to back you. Aint nobody reppin' with you, you cant see that?" This was intended to mock Ja Rule's street credibility, declaring that no one was backing him again and that he "fell off."
