Brian Mansfield of USA Today believed that the lyrics were directed at Eminem, whom Carey has a longstanding feud with, at one point singing "I know you're not a rapper, so you better stop spittin' it." Carey released "Up Out My Face" as a remix featuring Nicki Minaj in January 2010 for a proposed Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel remix album called Angels Advocate, shelved.

Brian Mansfield speculated that Carey was addressing Eminem in the lyrics, with whom she has had a longstanding feud. Carey has been romantically linked with several male celebrities during the course of her career, some of which she has spoken about and acknowledged, while others she has denied dating. Eminem has claimed on multiple occasions that he dated Carey, but Carey has always denied that she knew him on a romantic level. In 2001, Carey contacted Eminem to discuss the possibility of writing a song together for inclusion on Carey's ninth studio album Charmbracelet, they started dating soon after. In 2002, Eminem mentioned the singer twice on The Eminem Show, his fourth studio album, on the tracks "Superman" and "When the Music Stops", both of which were revealed to have been inspired by their relationship in Eminem's 2008 autobiography, The Way I Am; the former track contained the lyrics "What you trying be? My new wife? / What, you Mariah? Fly through twice," while the latter suggested that he begged to be taken back by Carey.

That year, Eminem confirmed that they had been in a relationship in an interview for Rolling Stone, but claimed to have not been committed to it and that he disliked her as a person, while Carey told Maxim that it was never a "sexual relationship" and interviewer Larry King "I hung out with him, I spoke to him on the phone. I think I was with him a total of four times, and I don't consider that dating somebody."
