Acid Drops are a form of Liquid LSD — Meech mixes it with whatever he’s drinking at the club to experience his trip, causing pshycological affects such as an altered sense of time and spiritual experiences.

Speed is a potent and addictive amphetamine that keeps you awake and energized when taken — its effects are like an adrenaline rush that lasts for hours.

Mac takes speed in conjunction with liquor such as Tequila — The combination of the two eventually leads and inspires Mac to start producing beats. Funnily enough this beat is actually produced by Mac Miller, who goes under the pseudonym Larry Fisherman when producing.

Eminem claims his music can be used as a therapy or treatment for those who are constantly struggling or going through challenging times in their life.

Eminem also touches on this subject in “Sing For The Moment”, explaining how kids/teenagers listen to this music to help them get through tough times, ultimately using it as a form of therapy.

Or for anyone who’s ever been through shit in they lives
So they sit and they cry at night wishing they’d die
‘til they throw on a rap record and they sit and they vibe

CyHi and the people around him all share the same mentality when it comes to rectifying a solution in the streets. Problems are dealt with weapons such as the 40 caliber pistol.

Yin and Yang represent the two opposite principles in nature. In this case the two opposing principles are people breaking the law by ‘slanging’ dope (selling drugs) to pay their for bills like a law abiding citizen. To do this would simply be a contradiction, thus being their yin and yang

Meech claims his unique flow is classic like the record scratches of DJ Premier.

DJ Premier is a hip-hop producer and DJ that is universally considered as one of the all time greats in hip-hop culture. In addition to his amazing beats, DJ Premier is also known for his signature classic scratches, in which he scratches lyrics from several different songs to construct new phrases. These are often used for his choruses.

Meech alludes to the idea that not everyone is perfect, and we should embrace what we see in the mirror despite our flaws or insecurites as they ultimately determine who we are. Everybody is different, and what we see in the mirror gives us our own unique identity.

very powerful wow

first line should be:
“You can’t stand us, music make you wanna vomit”

"Whenever together we give and go with the flow flipping l..." (Bliss n Eso – I am Somebody) | accepted

‘Give and Go with the flow’ also refers to Bliss and Eso going back and forth on a track much like Jordan and Pippen on the basketball court. Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen are said to be one of the greatest basketball duo’s of all time, leading the Chicago Bulls to 6 championships from 1991-93 and 1995-98 respectively.

"Dre told me to milk this shit for what it's worth" (Eminem – Say What You Say) | accepted

The idiom “milk this shit for what it’s worth” means to take advantage of something. Dr Dre told Eminem to take advantage of the Rap game while he is still relevant in the music industry. It’s safe to say Eminem took this advice, who currently has a networth of $140 Million.

It doesn’t look like Eminem is going to slow down anytime soon either, recently winning EMA’s ‘Global Icon’ Award. as well as having yet another album debutting #1 on the Billboard Charts

[Bad image! Try pasting a different image link!]

The line “I done put my two dimes and a nickel in this shit” could also refer to Eminem signing both 50 Cent and Obie Trice to Shady Records and introducing them into the rap game. Both are arguably the two biggest signees to Shady Records and both managed to sell 1,000,000 copies in the first week for their respective debut albums Get Rich or Die Trying and Cheers (hence why they’re dimes).

While the Nickel refers to Royce Da 5'9 who Eminem introduced to the mainstream through songs such as Lighters as well as through their collaborative EP Bad Meets Evil: Hell The Sequel

This line also supports the idea that the song itself is about his past. The song is about his past catching up to him, alluding to the fact he can’t leave it behind him. Despite where Eminem is at in his life right now as well as where he is at musically, Matthew is symbolic of his past and he (Eminem) can’t escape it:

Finally I found your new address, park in your drive
Feel like I been waitin' on this moment all of my life
And it’s now arrived, and my mouth is full of saliva
My knife is out and I’m duckin' on the side of your house
See, it’s sad it came to this point
Such a disappointment I had to make this appointment to come and see ya

The idea that a character from one his most critically acclaimed song’s “Stan” kills the ‘present’ Eminem is symoblic of how he will always be compared to his earlier music and due to this people will never be completely satisifed with his newer music, as shown by Matthew killing him.

Eminem was aware of this when had decided to make a sequel to the original Marshall Mathers LP. Eminem discusses this in the following interview (~47:00):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvdu3cJnPX4

It’s basically in my head… all these things in my head… it’s kind of like a nightmare, of everything coming back on me (his past), like saying… alright if you want to go down this lane again, and you want to call it this and you’re going to revisit this shit… then get ready for… whatever… (people comparing to his older work and dismissing his newer work)… it’s like everything coming back on me at once"

Matthew saying Eminem played him “cold” could also be a reference to the original, where Stan and Matthew waited in the blistering cold for 4 hours just to see Eminem.

We waited in the blistering cold for you for four hours and you just said no

“And the way you played him, same shit you did to me, go”

should be

“And the way you played him, same shit you did to me, cold!”
