In fact, you seeing me
In this rapping is like saying Tila Tequila can sing like Jasmin Sullivan
Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

Tila Tequila is considered the worst singer ever, she got famous via Myspace in 2006. So comparing her to a soul/RnB singer such as Jasmin Sullivan is impossible

Shotty that I got'll lobotomy your hair Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

Playing on the “quickest damn gunslingers..” line that makes up an important theme of this album, Royce references his “shotty” right from the get go.

More specifically, the shotgun he has will “lobotomy your hair". This is a sly metaphor, as he compares major brain damage with a trivial hair do. Bit of an under exaggeration?

With these ideas, anybody thinking the game don't need
The Bad and the Evil regime
That's like saying that bad boy Piston team didn't need Isaiah
Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

With this kind of lyrical prowess they come up with in their verses, can’t nobody say that rap doesn’t need the “BAD and EVIL” regime. They are the regime this GAME needs to stay alive

Royce compares himself and Eminem to the Detroit (their hometown) Pistons of the NBA, who during the 80s were known as “The Bad Boys” because of their physical style of play. Isaiah Thomas was their star player

Isaiah is also a term used to describe the perfect form of a man (physically, mentally and all), Em' and Royce are the game’s Isaiah

Isaiah was also a prophet in the 8th-century. He and Em' are again the game’s Isaiah. This goes with the religion theme of this verse

These last two interpretations are not likely intended by Royce but are interesting nonetheless
