Self-proclaimed Rap God Eminem has debuted a new freestyle track that features lyrics regarding the 2017 Manchester Arena terrorism attack.
Sharing a small snippet on Instagram, it certainly divided fans…
One fan fumed: “Eminem. You gotta stop. The Manchester thing, it’s not funny, it’s not cool, it’s insensitive. You’re insensitive to everyone and everything and it’s not cool. It’s just creating controversy so you can prolong your career. You’re a good enough rapper without it all, you have enough fans to last you a long time. Chill out.”
Another added: “f*cking disgusting pig. HOW DARE YOU. Im horrified at the fact that you added Manchester into your lyrics and went as far to joke about it? F*ck off.”
A third said: “You’re f*cking sick for rapping about Ariana grandes Manchester bombing! Who tf raised you!!”
The comments just kept coming, with more fans attacking the rapper for his lyrics: “Rapping about Manchester is lower than low… you’re cancelled””
At the beginning of the video, Eminem says: “The main objective is to destroy, completely f*ckin’ obliterate your opponent by saying anything and everything, whatever the fuck you can, to get a reaction from the crowd. So nothing’s off limits.” This is in reference to rap battles.
The part regarding the Manchester bombing says: “Squashed in-between a brainwashing machine / Like an Islamic regime, a jihadist extreme radical / Suicide bomber that’s seeing / Ariana Grande sing her last song of the evening / And as the audience from the damn concert is leaving / Detonates the device strapped to his abdominal region.”
In a bit of a random attack, he claims that Justin Bieber sells drugs: “Justin Bieber in a Catholic school / Selling dust and reefer when your back is to him / Don’t adjust your speaker.”
