I'm the kinda guy that's mild but I might flip and get a little bit wilder

from Eminem – Stay Wide Awake Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Most serial killers are able to fit into their surroundings well due to their incredible lying ability, so to the general public they are generally viewed as laid back people. But when it becomes time to kill, they absolutely lose their shit and become animals.

Also a reference to the Australian-born serial killer Christopher Wilder who was responsible for a string of murders across Florida and the southern United States during the 1980’s.
