Catch me in my Mercedes
Bumping Ice Ice Baby
Screamin' Shady til I die
Like a half a pair of dice, life's crazy
Eminem is riding his Mercedes listening to Vanilla Ice’s (white-rap classic) “Ice Ice Baby”. Around 2000, Eminem had a beef with Vanilla Ice, why is he bringing that up though? Vanilla Ice even appeared in the video for Eminem’s 2008 song “We Made You”. Not to be taken seriously like Royce’s unicorn line. Or wait, Em is still famous and Vanilla Ice only makes the news when he gets arrested again. This might be an implicit bitch slap.
Screamin Shady ‘till I DIE, like a half a pair of DICE
This MIGHT be a triple-entendre:
One dice : a Die, pair of dice : two Dice
Em has ‘a (retirement) paradise’ (following off of Royce’s opener of living on an island) waiting for him when he dies (when he’s done as a rapper).
Eminem often refers to his rap career as half-great half-awful.
Sets up for the literal use of dice in the following lines with ‘Don’t stop me I’m on a roll’ (as in rolling in his Mercedes, dice rolling, and himself “ON” a roll in his flow)
The first two lines are quite similar to P.O.S' line “Catch me bumping Isis in a crisis”, including using some internal rhyme. This might be incidental though.
