Cinderella man, Cinder Fellow, Shady dane
Came to wrap the game up in cellophane,
Eminem aka Slim Shady seeks to “preserve” hip-hop..by wrapping it in cellophane (works great for frozen veggies!)
And as for a bit more — cinder fellow would imply that he’s “On Fire” and possibly references the 1960 film Cinderfella in the sense that Eminem, much like Cinderfella, had no father and was at the wrath of his evil mother. Then his guardian angel Proof convinced him he could win the prized girl, Lady Hip-Hop, who Eminem married and lived happily-ever-a-few-years until they divorced.
OR he could be letting us know that when he plays “Killer Instinct” he’s a Cinder player… We all know Em has a love for arcade games
The Cinderfella reference is to Dana Danes old school rap song “Cinderfella Dana Dane”
