from Eminem – Legacy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

An obvious play off Em’s birth name, Marshall Mathers
Very similar to the idea of the hook on Lloyd Bank’s Where I’m At featuring Em:

There ain’t no one on this earth I’d much rather be
Cause God dammit I’m glad that I’m me

As well as The Real Slim Shady from the original Marshall Mathers LP where he says:

I’m Slim Shady, yes I’m the real Shady
All you other Slim Shadys are just imitating
So won’t the real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up

He also used ‘Fire Marshall’ in Seduction. Royce Da 5'9 gave Eminem the nickname Fire Marshall because he “shuts shit down”. On the previous line he says:

‘The most high exalting and I ain’t halting
Till I die of exhaustion inhale my exhaust fumes’

When he says refers to himself as ‘fire marshall’ he could be indicating that he is going to distinguish the ‘exhaust fumes’.
