What's Eminem got against Lana Del Rey?!
In a new video released in promotion of the rapper's Shady XV compilation, he not only calls out the "Summertime Sadness" singer but he also references former Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice's domestic abuse scandal.
The controversial lyrics, which can be heard at 15:37 in the rhyme, reads: "But I may fight for gay rights, especially if they dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice/ Play nice? B**ch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance/ ’Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens."
The "elevator surveillance" line refers to when Rice was caught hitting his then fiancee (now wife) on an elevator camera.
This wouldn't be the first time Eminem has gone after a female pop star. Prior raps have slammed Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Mariah Carey.
Del Rey, 29, has yet to comment on the lyric, but in a 2012 interview, she did mention that the 42-year-old rapper had an influence on her music. She told rnbjunk.com, "[Eminem] really changed my life. I didn't know music could be intelligent. He wasn't just rhyming for rhyme's sake. That made me think I could actually talk about the way things actually were. He's a genius."
Has Eminem gone too far this time?
