A decade old feud has once again been sparked between Eminem and Nick Cannon. With the Queen of Christmas Mariah Carey at the center, the two are rehashing some old material and fans are less than optimistic about Nick Cannon’s chances.
Old memories of a beef between the two, over lyrics about Carey, was brought back into the light during a podcast appearance from Cannon with T.I. in September. The introduction of the subject back into the culture was enough to put it back on Eminem’s mind, bringing it up in a feature with Fat Joe last week.
“I'm sittin' here reminiscing, think I just got a lightbulb,” he begins.
“I know me and Mariah didn't end on a high note, but that other dude's whipped, that ***** got him neutered,” he adds. “Fool quit, you not gonna do s***. I let her chop my ***** off too before I lost to you, Nick.”
And with that it was back on, with Cannon answering back in not one, but two diss tracks. Cannon brings up Eminem’s daughter and past drug use, and also alleges that the rapper has undergone plastic surgery. Between songs Eminem responded via Twitter. “U mad bro? Stop lying on my d***. I never even had a chauffeur, you bougie f***,” he shot back. “I demand an apology Nicholas, you've made my gardener so jealous!”
As fans await a potential lyrical response to these new claims, #RIPNickCannon has been trending, fulling expecting Cannon to be bodied in whatever follows.
