But I feel like I’m 6'8"

from Bad Meets Evil (Ft. Bruno Mars) – Lighters Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Em plays off the name of his partner, Royce da 5'9", to say that he feels really good about himself

Is this a jab at Lil Wayne, who recently released the song 6'7'? We all know this isn’t really a shot at Lil Wayne but one can argue Wayne was the hottest MC in the game for minute and Eminem could be saying he is now one up on him.

Interesting notes: 5, 6 and 9,8 are close numbers just like Royce to Eminem. More importantly, Freddy Krueger is 5'9 in height (Bad/Royce), And Jason Voorhees is 6'8 in height (Evil/Eminem).

Bad meets Evil indeed.
