Ayo, lyrical miracle, spiritual individual, criminal
Subliminal, in your swimming pool
Em makes fun of a nerdy, “underground”-style flow using the same language as a recent Sean Price line that does the same thing. “Lyrical miracle spiritual” rappers has become somewhat of a well known term, he mentions this on an earlier freestyle also. If you listen in the background Royce goes on to say “Metaphysical”
Notice how he touches upon each subject he brings up in these opening bars
Lyrical: Everyone on the cypher killed it
Miracle: “gon need a priest”, Holy Water
Spiritual: “When I’m gone will he be mourned?"
Individual Criminal: Casey Anthony, Mike Vick, Posdnuos
Subliminal: The whole verse
Swimming pool: Tonsil pool
These lines were most likely spontaneous and only thought of during the cypher, as before Royce’s verse, Eminem cheers him on in the background by saying “lyrical miracles!”, which is most likely what gave him the idea.
Joe Budden also participated in the mockery with an exaggerated “ooooh” in the background (something Eminem has previously made fun of as well) which just proves Joe’s statement.
