Eminem still has some words for Nick Cannon.
“The Real Slim Shady” called out Cannon in a new song called “Lord Above” by Fat Joe and Dre. The song features Eminem and Mary J. Blige.
The two rappers were famously engaged in a rap beef over Eminem’s issues with Mariah Carey. Eminem has continued to claim he had a roughly six-month relationship with Carey, but Carey denied it and even alluded to Eminem’s fixation in a music video for “Obsessed”.
Eminem took aim at the now ex-couple in two songs: “Bagpipes from Baghdad” and “The Warning”. Cannon, meanwhile, shot back with the diss track “I’m a Slick Rick”.
Fast-forward 10 years and Eminem rehashed the beef in Fat Joe and Dre’s new release.
“Word to the Terror Squad, Joe, this is all puns aside though/I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note,” Eminem raps. “But that other dude’s whipped, that p**sy got him neutered/Tried to tell him this chick’s a nut job before he got his jewels clipped/Almost got my caboose kicked, fool, quit, you not gon’ do s**t.”
“I let her chop my balls off, too ‘fore I lost to you, Nick/I should quit watchin’ news clips, yeah,” he continued. “My balls are too big, I should be talkin’ pool/’Cause I got scratches on my pocket, fall when I’m takin’ shots at you.”
Eminem’s new diss is possibly in response to comments Cannon made back in September. Cannon reflected on Eminem’s statements about Carey and how he allegedly tried to phone Eminem up.
“I went looking for him,” Cannon said. “I called managers… I gotta show my wife I’m a man… I said, ‘I know I’m not gonna be able to out rap you but I will whoop your a**.’ Those were the exact words at the time. Cooler heads prevailed.”
Cannon laughed off Eminem’s latest diss while hosting “Nick Cannon Mornings” on Power 104FM radio.
“We should change his name from Eminem to, like, Percocet. What’s the pill that old people take? We gon’ call him Cialis,” Cannon said while dressed as Santa. “Bring your walker, get out your wheelchair Eminem, and pop whatever you wanna pop. Should I respond back to this? It’s not worthy of a response.”
“He’s a legend, though,” Cannon’s co-host argued. “No, he’s not,” Cannon snapped back.
Cannon put out a response diss on Monday titled, “The Invitation”. The song features Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out” castmates Hitman Holla and Charlie Clips, rapper Prince Eazy and a special message recorded by the currently incarcerated Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight.
“Check this out Eminem — or whatever your name is, right? You know, I never do no talking, but Nick is family. This is your invitation to prove to everybody else what you’re about,” Knight said at the beginning of the song. “Eminem’s a b**ch.”
“Call Kim/Somebody get Hailie,” Cannon rapped, naming Eminem’s ex-wife and daughter. “And that other kid you raisin’ that ain’t even your baby.” He added in a separate line, “My baby-mama killed you off a decade ago/ You’re still cryin’ about it, b**ch, now who really the hoe?”
Cannon’s response received primarily negative feedback, sitting at approximately 90 per cent dislikes on YouTube as of this writing.
Eminem reacted to Cannon’s diss track with a pair of tweets.
50 Cent also got in on the feud, taking Eminem’s side and directly calling Cannon out.
