"Don't make me step on you and make you wine grapes" (Eminem – Groundhog Day) | rejected

It’s in the double meaning of wine/whine and grapes (the fruit)/grapes (an insulting way of referring to other people).

"'til I walk a flock of flames / Off a plank and," (Eminem – Rap God) | accepted

I disagree that it’s doubtful that Eminem saw the interview in the first place. And the reason is simple.

The record company probably has a department that keeps track of these things. And the reason for that is also simple: money.

On one level, Eminem is a source of income for the record company. The more successful he is, the more he’s worth. So the more he knows about everything, the more he can potentially be worth.

It’s business, it’s how it works.

So said team probably sorts through everything and it’s made sure that everything that’s relevant for Eminem to know gets sent to him.

Case in point: after the MMLP2 leak, this site was requested to shut down access to the lyrics until the official release date.

Actually I think that with backhanding a donkey he means slapping it on it’s ass. Which makes it kick. In the getting your ass kicked part he keeps using the ass (other word for donkey) reference.

Backhanding a donkey: slapping it on it’s ASS.
Getting your ASS socked in the mouth: ASS/DONKEY wordplay.

"In a flying saucer full of Italian sausage" (Eminem – Legacy) | rejected

“Saucer” also contains the word “sauce”, making it also another reference to food.

There may be a wordplay here with the “All my people from the front to the back nod, back nod” line.

It means everyone in the crowd from the front to the back.

Nodding is moving your head from the front to the back.

It may be a playful way of doing some wordplay with the “front to the back” bit.

"But I'm actually weirder than you think / Cause I'm..." (Eminem – The Monster) | rejected

Now that I have the booklet I disagree with my previous comment. It’s written down in it like this:

/but I’m actually weirder than you think/cuz I’m…

If my suggestion was the intended message of that part, you’d expect a comma or / before the word think.

So I think I was wrong initially.

"Bite me bitch, chew on a nineteen footer" (Eminem – Stronger Than I Was) | accepted

It’s “bite me bitch, chew on a nineteen footer”

"Felt like I was in for a long bus ride / I'd rather die t..." (Eminem – Stronger Than I Was) | accepted

It’s “I’d rather die than you not be by my side”.

Source: CD booklet.

Also note the wordplay with “concrete” and “rock”.

"Ants and a mouse / I'm living the dream" (Eminem – So Far...) | accepted

I interpret this as a metaphor for the theme of the song, it being him being rich and famous yet still being the person who lived in poverty.

The metaphor is created by this and the previous line together:

“Bitch, I got an elevator in my house” –> The rich and famous element.

“Ants and a mouse” –> The poverty part. It refers to old houses with problems with mouses, rat, insects, etc.

In that way those two lines express the theme of the song.
