You walked in, yellow jump suit, whole room, cracked jokes
Once you got inside the booth, told you, mic smoke
When Eminem first showed up to meet Dre, others in the room were cracking jokes about Em. But once he started rapping, everybody was shocked.
On the fateful day, Eminem was wearing a yellow jumpsuit given to him by a sponsor because he couldn’t afford proper clothes.
Mic smoke is from the metaphorical fire that Eminem set onto the mike because his rap was hot. The incident ties in with lyrics from White America: “…until I met Dre the only one to look past, gave me a chance and I lit a fire up under his ass” and the phrase has been used in No Love (ft. Lil Wayne) “…set fire to the mic, ignite the crowd”
