M&M's are yellow
Also, Lupe Fiasco, being a devout Muslim, prefers yellow M&Ms over red ones, because red M&Ms contain cochineal, a carmine-comprised dye that followers of Islam are forbidden to consume
Lupe is used to a place where M&M’s are yellow. But in his world of superstardom, Eminem’s come in a different color: white.
This is also a reference to rock stars who make absurd backstage requests, such as only having a whole bowl of only one color of M&M’s (as in the legendary Van Halen “brown M&M” clause). Lupe is speaking of his desire for comfort and vanity.
