Each region breeds some MCs that wanna be
Which means they wanna breathe our air
Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

Wannabe emcees bloom from everywhere, inspired by Em and Royce’s style — they hope to breathe the same air (to be on the same level)

This line (“MCs wanna breath our air”) would’ve referred to the “oxygen theme” hook this song was supposed to have

Easily these are the reasons that we need to be in y'all prayers Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

Another yoda sentence.
These reasons (those spoken in the upper lines proving their superiority amongst other rappers) are easily the ones that they need to deserve their fans prayers.

Better be something with a big foot pedigree Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

Come at ‘em with a Bigfoot pedigree and maybe you’ll stand a chance.

Pedigree is also a term used for describing one’s lineage, so if one comes from a big foot pedigree, he’s practically a monster, and that’s who you need to be to go against them.

You 'bout to have to admit it
They pass you the mic, asked you to spit it
You got handed your own ass, your ass in your own hands
I'm sure they gon' laugh when you're going to the bathroom with it
Now with what would you come against us
Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

Just wait until he’s done spitting this verse/song and you’ll have to admit that Em and Royce are way better than you

“___ in your hands” means that something is under your control. So with “your ass in your own hands”, Royce may be saying that YOU’RE the reason you got your ass handed to you.

You tried going against them, and got “handed your own ass”, which is an expression meaning beaten badly. If you take it literally, people would laugh at you holding your own ass, and if you tried to go to the bathroom, you’d have a problem, and end up with “the shit” (Royce may be alluding to him and Em as being “the shit”) on your hands

“With what would you come against us (the shit)?"
Ummm…soap ?

With the ratchet, the book of Matthew
A book of
Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

A “ratchet” usually refers to a gun

The book of Matthew tells of the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. A controversial book that could be considered “a book of matches” as in a book of tools meant to set fire (controversy)

What’s he about to do with this stuff? He could shoot the book then set it on fire, light a candle and read the book, etc. The important thing is that with the fire and religion and all, these lyrics allude to Hell, which fits the title of the song

Guess who just came through the blast, you bitches Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

Bad just came through the blast that Evil set with his opening verse.

Possibly also a reference to “Boom”, one of Royce’s earlier singles.

But man I can't just keep
Doing them like that or no one will rap with me
Except one, you asked who is it
Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

If Em hopes to collaborate with any other rappers, he will have to stop crushing them all. Royce is the only person that’s able to keep up with him in a song.

Yeah, go ahead little prick bastard, diss it
But when you get hit with a sick-ass explicit flow
Don't ask how much of his passion is it that goes in it
Welcome 2 Hell by Bad Meets Evil

Go ahead and diss it (the blizzard that his words are), it won’t do much to him. You don’t even want to know how passionate he’ll get about dissing you back though, because he enjoys it

Also note the possible prick/head wordplay (both are slang terms for penis)
