An Eminem-Chris D’Elia rap battle may be on the horizon

Challenge accepted.

Last week, Eminem and Logic unveiled their collab “Homicide,” which featured a sample of comedian Chris D’Elia parodying Em on the outro. Em then went on to challenge the funnyman to a rap face-off.

“Slim Shady himself called me out?! I accept!” D’Elia responded. He posted to Instagram a photo of himself next to a trunk filled with napkins, a reference to a line he dropped in his impersonation poking fun at Em’s rapid-fire flow (“You use way too many napkins! Bapkins! Lapkins and japkins!”).

Despite Eminem’s long history of beefs, the rap battle seems all in good fun. Earlier in February, the rapper had posted another clip of the comedian’s “incredible” impression.

In a statement to Billboard, D’Elia said it was an honor to be featured on Logic’s latest single. As a huge fan of Eminem, the comedian thought it was only right to allow the rappers to sample his vocals for free.

“I’ve been a fan for 20 years! I’m not trying to make money in the rap world,” D’Elia said. “I did my silly impression in my garage. I say, ‘have at it.’ […] So many rappers take themselves so seriously, so when they show some humility or poke fun of themselves it goes a long way.”

Stay tuned for their rap battle.
