But I still am a "Criminal!"
Even though Em isn’t the same person he was when he made the original MMLP, he can still make the same music. One of the songs on the album is called Criminal.
And the sound when he says “CRIMINAL” is the same as the Criminal’s intro. Looks like a sample.
This line is also a reference to the previous skit on the album, Parking Lot, which is a continuation of the song Criminal off the MMLP.
