Eminem has been making people angry with his violent lyrics since he started gaining popularity in the 1990s. However, this time one song is allegedly disrespecting Rihanna, and her Navy is really not having it.
E! News reports that the 47-year-old rapper is in hot water this week after a Reddit user allegedly obtained and posted an unreleased version of a song that made it onto B.o.B.'s 2011 track titled "Things Get Worse."
In the recording, titled "(SNIPPET) Eminem - Things Get Worse (Rihanna Diss)," the 8 Mile actor raps, “I'd side with Chris Brown, I'd beat down a b***h too,” referencing Chris Brown’s 2009 domestic assault of Rihanna. As you remember, the “Needed Me” singer was hospitalized after Brown beat her in his vehicle, leaving visible injuries. Rihanna pressed charges against Brown, and he was charged with felony assault.
Of course, people are seriously angry over this revelation and are taking to social media to bash Eminem.
Though Mathers and the fashion mogul have collaborated on songs like “Love the Way You Lie” and “The Monster,” and even toured together briefly in 2014, the snippet was meant to go onto Eminem’s Relapse album in 2009. While the lyrics didn’t make the cut, it seems that dirt this serious will always come out in the wash.
Neither Rihanna nor Eminem have commented on the lyrics thus far.
