(Odd Future, the hip hop collective that Earl and Tyler belong to, are from Los Angeles, California, where legal age of consent is 18.)
In most public schools, you’re not allowed to have snacks unless you bring enough for the whole class, and you can’t eat them during the lesson (bullshit!)
Of course, Earl’s sack is filled with a girl’s dead (or incapacitated) body, whom he earlier kidnapped. He sarcastically explains to Tyler that he can’t stumble into math class with a body in a sack
Earl might have dismembered body parts in his bag. This is a reference to Ed Gein who killed a woman and stored her head in a burlap sack.Ed Gein-Wikipedia
Earl’s crew, (Odd Future), are “combustible” (hot) like a Molotov cocktail
As it’s unclear whether this line is “ups to shut” or “ups to chuck”, you can take it one of three ways.
After Earl forcefucks a girl, he threatens her, telling her he’ll kill her if she tells anybody — thus, “shut up”.
Earl’s popping pills — more specifically “upper/ups”; stimulants that would make raping that much easier.
Earl’s done too much of something (probably alcohol) and is vomiting his guts out, or is “upchucking”.

Due to Em’s outrageous and violent lyrics, many of his fans are scary/unpopular kids
Em is an “oddity,” in that he is the only successful white guy in an industry of black rappers. However, he refuses to use this position to make money
Ozzy Osbourne’s audience consists mainly of outcast teenagers and “freaks,” much like Eminem’s audience
Similar to a drug addict doing dopamine, when Eminem steps up to the mic you hope that nothing bad will happen to you
