Matthew Mitchell (Stan’s younger brother) has been looking around to find Eminem’s house in order to kill him for the suffering he has caused him and the late Stan.

His use of the 9:45 time is curious to some. The most likely explanation is assonance; Em probably just wanted a bunch of “i” sounds in this line, given how meticulous he can be with his rhyme schemes.

A theory has been presented, though, that 9 hours and 45 minutes is the total length of Eminem’s discography except collaboration albums (Bad Meets Evil, D12…), bonus tracks, and deluxe tracks. Perhaps this suggests that Matthew is listening to Em while he’s driving around for him.

  • Infinite 37 minutes
  • The Slim Shady LP 59 minutes (96)
  • Marshall Mathers LP 72 minutes (168)
  • The Eminem Show 77 minutes (245)
  • Encore 77 minutes (322)
  • Relapse 76 minutes (398)
  • Relapse: Refill 33 minutes (431)
  • Recovery 76 minutes (508)
  • The Marshall Mathers LP 2 78 minutes (585)

585 (Total minutes)

9 hours and 45 minutes

(Note that Refill is officially considered a bunch of bonus tracks, which means we should add in Em’s other bonus tracks too if we’re counting it… which means the theory is probably incorrect.)

This could be a reference to Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” video which is approximately 9:45 [Smooth Criminal] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_D3VFfhvs4)

It makes sense as the hook in this song goes along with the tapping on the window / sound of the crescendo.

Also, this would be thematically correct as Matthew Mitchell comes into Em’s bedroom later and hacks him down i.e. struck him down.

Media and adversaries criticize him for using drugs or making references about them in his songs, and often say that he should look for a more “proper” career instead of rapping.

Wayne responds by saying that he is a hustler and he’d rather keep doing what he does and die, than to “make a living” by being a regular person in a nine-to-five (regular job).

A play with words on achieving his goals and on American Football, in which a goal post has the cross bar to vault over, similar to the cross bar in pole vaulting.

Eminem is saying he’s so close to reaching his goals, that he can literaly just pole-vault himself over the goalpost.

Pole vault is a popular field event where athletes use a pole to vault themselves over a bar set at a predetermined height. Similarly, Em will vault over his set goals. Links to the starting bars where he over-reached beyond his set goals.

No one knows for sure how long this fantasy might have been stuck on his noggin. By noting the outrageous detailed specifics, it’s quite safe to say he’d actually been pondering this for a while now.

Synonymous with the phrase “there are plenty more fish in the sea”, which means there are plenty more girls out there for him to get to know.

Now that he is rich, 2 Chainz can now afford expensive sauces and dressings at the table. Notice how the word dressings is played with in the following line when he mentions Givenchy: a luxury attire (dress) brand.

Could be reference to his cookbook , which contains sauces and dressings.

Here are some of Eminem’s “chicken scratches” from his biographical book The Way I Am.)

I think it’s worth noting that when he says “baby make” it can mean “baby-make” meaning “have kids”, which is what K-fed did and the reason why he let go.

"Fuckin' acronym" (Eminem – Survival) | accepted

This could possibly be a shot against “YOlO”, (You Only Live Once) an acronym popularized by Drake.

The correct lyric is “…to the side of a pump.”

Also, here’s a relevant GIF:

It is “err!” instead of “eh” like the buzzer in TV game shows when you give out a wrong answer. He’s saying you’re mistaken by thinking he gave up.

"Can't get a W on Broadway, I'm New York all day / Yeah, t..." (Joell Ortiz – Outta Control (Freestyle)) | accepted

“Oye” means “Hear that” or “listen”.

"Either way, I personal train this beat, it gotta get ripped" (Joell Ortiz – Outta Control (Freestyle)) | accepted

Notice the play on “Personal trainer” and get “ripped”. As in giving the beat muscle definition in gym-speak, but he’s just cleverly saying he’s gonna rip apart the beat, aka destroy it.

Rules are despised because they’re a harsh reminder that we are not omnipotent, that we are powerless, that we are as just like anybody else,and that we can’t have it all to ourselves.

Rules tell us that since we are not unique, and since we are like everyone else —equally valueless— we have to share with, and give space to our equally powerless and equally unimportant peers.

Reminds me of the font of the film “Where the Wild Things Are” and other films used to denote youth. To me the red and smokey white symbolize how Drake has tried to cover his soft persona-some could say “femininity”– symbolized with the Playboy bunny, a symbol that easily represents women( Yes,not that great). How he has tried to cloud it (the smokey white) by painting with red blood lyrics.
