Eatin' a crayon, Rap City Freestyle by Eminem

Em is so high that he’s eating crayons!

Eating crayons is a common stereotype of retarded children, who Em is comparing himself to

REMEMBER: Just because the crayon is labeled “macaroni n' cheese” doesn’t mean it will actually taste like it

Two tubes of airplane glue and a can of Krylon

I'm meaner in action than Roscoe beating James Todd, Sr
And smackin' his back with vacuum cleaner attachments
3 Verses by Eminem

James Todd Smith is the real name of rapper LL Cool J. In Smith’s 1998 autobiography I Make My Own Rules (which Em claims in his own autobiography, The Way I Am, as being one of the only books he’s ever read in his whole life), Cool J recounts how he was physically abused by his step-father Roscoe, who would beat him with the hose from a vacuum cleaner

Crowds of weekend warriors Broken Wing by Qwel

A “weekend warrior” is somebody who only does something on the weekend — in this case, it could be referring to people who attend church on the weekend (Sunday) but have hearts that are not truly aligned with God

  • Don’t deny that Yah is shorthand for Yahweh, being God’s formal “name” so to speak, but after listening to the song, it doesn’t sound like Qwel ever says “Yah” in the line (he starts it with “Fallen singer”)

With triple-six brow Broken Wing by Qwel

Revelation 16-18:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

The Devil makes it impossible to buy or sell things unless you have been tattooed with the Number of the Beast (666) either on the right hand or on the forehead. In this case it’s the forehead, on the brow

However, Revelation makes no mention of whether or not you can strangle your girlfriend with a triple-six brow

  • Joel 3:12-13:

    12.) Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. 13.) Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.

  • Rev. 14:14-20:

    14.) And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15.) And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe… (Verses 16-20 go into further detail on the same topic that Joel speaks of)

  • I don’t think Qwel is substituting himself as the one swinging the sickle at the anti-Christians in question, since the Biblical imagery that he’s using of the ungodly being a harvest that needs to be “reaped” during a future (Armageddon-like) age is usually held to be a job reserved for the angels.
  • Also, I don’t profess to know it for a fact, but I would argue that Qwel most likely does not believe in the Devil as an actual existing supernatural being like most mainstream religions preach. For example, I know it’s Robust’s lyric rather than Qwel’s, but in “Art Of War”, the idea is made that the real devil is the preacher of mainstream religion (note the lines: “Facts and wisdom killed the catechism entrusting the pope” and “take time and find the Devil’s a priest”, etc…).
  • All of that being said, I think Qwel is simply alluding to the Biblical concept of the wicked being “harvested” (or in actuality, destroyed) in an age of judgement on the earth (that’s not to say that there won’t be wars fought in the same time period — Matt. 24:6 — but I don’t think that’s what Qwel is referring to with the line in question)

Blazin', amazed at how this truth just sounds sick Broken Wing by Qwel

Qwel is smoking weed (blazin') and is surprised at how preaching the truth can result in so many good-sounding rhymes

If you ain't 'bout it 'bout it, you're about to get drowned, kid Broken Wing by Qwel

In Revelation 12:15-16, the Devil unsuccessfully attempts to drown a righteous woman by casting a flood from his mouth. Instead, the Earth opens and swallows the flood, saving her. Those who are not righteous, or aren’t “‘bout it 'bout it” (“all about” God’s word), will not be saved and will drown

My eyes open high to the bloody horse soundin' Broken Wing by Qwel

Returning to the subject of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from a line in the first verse, the “bloody” (Red) Horse is the second to arrive, representing War. Like the others, it announces “Come and see!” before appearing
