Eminem’s a busy guy these days—not only is he executive producing the soundtrack to Southpaw, but he found time to drop by “Sway in the Morning” on Thursday to deliver a blistering eight-minute freestyle. Like practically any Shady freestyle, this one is a jaunt through pop culture headlines of the last six months, delivered with Em’s acidic perspective on celebrity culture. Or, in other words, he talks about slapping Miley Cyrus a lot.
He also takes on lightning-rod figures like Azealia Banks (“Just want to tell ya thanks, now I got trailor skanks sending me Ball Park Franks in the mail as pranks”), Bill Cosby (“I’m as off-putting as Bill Cosby is / Treat women like property”), Donald Trump, and Caitlyn Jenner (“I see the bitch in you, Caitlyn / I keep the pistol tucked like Bruce Jenner’s dick … No pun intended, that took a lot of balls”), and the results may shock you.
May being the operative term—Eminem’s been promising to kill, torture, and embarrass various pop culture figures for over two decades, so at this point it’s more nostalgic than frightening to hear him compare himself to Aaron Hernandez, threatening Amanda Bynes, and offer his subpoenas to Hillary Clinton.
Check out the explosive freestyle below, and look out for the Southpaw soundtrack in stores tomorrow.
