That I was just there to run an errand
Told her friends I was a son from her last marriage
Our House by Eminem

Marshall’s mother wasn’t proud of him, that’s why she tried to show everyone they weren’t close to each other.

"Hey, Mom! 2Pac's on the juke box
So what he shot two cops
And raped a little girl while two dudes watched"
"Nuh-uh! They were tryin' to frame him
You and that Two Pack Shaker,"
Our House by Eminem

The young Marshall Mathers was excited about things he’s heard about Tupac and tries to tell his mother about him to share a bit of his life with her, but she isn’t impressed at all.

Tupac went to jail on sexual assault charges for allegedly raping a girl with his friends in a hotel room. Tupac denied it, so all his fans would get angry at people who accused him.

And then Debbie makes the ultimate mistake and pronounces Pac’s name wrong.

The punctuation, particularly the quotation marks, has confused who is saying what. For example, lines two, three, and five are spoken by the mother, while one and four are the son.

Also, it’s not clear that the house is the Mathers home. Did they ever live in the suburbs? Further, Eminem was 21 years old when Tupac was charged with rape, while the protagonist of the first verse appears significantly younger.

So when you find yourself wrapped up in the blinds, hurting
(Bitch it's too late)
Cause once you're hung from the drapes, it's curtains
Under the Influence by Eminem (Ft. D12)

Slim Shady sets up a curtain metaphor saying that he’ll have the victim wrapped up in blinds and hung from drapes and then it’ll be curtains for them, which is an idiom meaning they’re a goner (referring to the falling curtain signifying the end of a performance)

It’s also a pun. Blinds/curtains/drapes…

umm what about W.A.S.P.? White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, an arrogant, degenerate group. Also a derogatory term in which someone can be described as obnoxious, due to intrusive behavior while supporting the notion that it has to do with their white background. Eminem got it tho

two pennies is a very nice fit here because as about to be explained in the next line, clint eastwood might have been very poor in his mid 20s because he broke through when he was 30. get it? having 2 pennies is being very very poor. Also, his eyes were much bigger when he was younger and his eyes are brown. the next line describes what might have been clint eastwood’s poverty as clint eastwood grew up poorer in san francisco working multiple jobs to get a living then joining the military, saying he straps his last pants to a trash can so the rats don’t eat them. This is something broke people do, and having only 2 pennies to your name is being really broke
