He’s writing the song in past tense so he’s likely to have recovered from that state by now.

This line is not referring to another heart attack, but the pain caused by the robbers shooting Everlast in the chest. It is, however, most likely a double-entendre that references his heart attack.

In formal English, this is the correct form. To me, it looked like a racial remark though, since the form ‘where I’m at’ is traditionally linked to African-American culture. (correct me in the comments box)

A flight departing late at night and arriving early the next morning. The term red-eye derives from the fatigue symptom of having red eyes, which can be caused or aggravated by late-night travel.

"[Intro]" (Eminem – Careful What You Wish For) | pending

This intro bears strong resemblance to T.I.’s Act I: T.I.P., a song off his 2006 album T.I. vs. T.I.P.
I think the similarity is so plain this is clearly a reference to that song.

"I'm finna blow the mic the whole night so" (Eminem – Wicked Ways) | pending

Good explanation, gave it a +1.

Also, it’s a possibe reference to the previos line since a girl who’s on her cycle can only give blowjobs…

"With great power comes absolutely no responsibility" (Eminem – Rhyme or Reason) | accepted

Good explanation, gave it a +1. Perhaps we could also include the relevant part from the Spider-Man movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o308cW0hKI#t=17

"Probably find a way to complain about a Picasso painting" (Eminem – Rhyme or Reason) | rejected

Also, it’s like a prime example of the difference in their characters: if there’s something good and exclusive, Jay wants one of them in his casa, while Em finds a way to hate it still…

Definitely not Royce nor Fuzz. They ate both in the Shady family now. mcfreshfish’s point is worth considering tho.

Also, in the prevois lines he mentions his ex-wife, whom he had a prenup with, and when she left, she took half of his money.

"Hear no evil see no evil, Helen Keller" (Lil Wayne – Tha Carter IV Intro) | pending

This is also a genius line, because it can be interpreted two ways: In a pessimist way, i.e. you can’t go through life without experiencing (seeing and hearing) negative, evil things, unless you are deaf and blind — evil is so obvious. The positive way to see this line is no matter how difficult life gets, and what you’re deprived of, there is always an upper side you can look at. Helen Keller faced serious obstacles in her life but she overcame them and become renowned — Hell, she even made it to a Wayne lyric!

"Even Helen Keller knows life stinks" (Eminem – Asshole) | rejected

This joke is somehow an extension of Lil Wayne’s line from his 2011 song Tha Carter IV intro where Wayne says you have to be deaf and blind to see and hear no evil. Em takes the prank further by pointing out that even then, you can still smell how stinky life is…

"I can't believe I'm telling you this, but I've had a coup..." (Lady Gaga – Sexxx Dreams) | accepted

She doesn’t vomit at all — she just covers her mouth with her hand after the confession because she feels half-excited but still half-ashamed.

"You ain't gonna sell two copies if you press a double album" (Eminem – Just Don't Give a Fuck) | accepted

It’s hard to say who influenced whom, but Bugz used a similar pun in that very year in the song Bugz ‘97 off D12’s D12 World album.
