Last week, Eminem reignited his decade-long feud with Nick Cannon, which reportedly began in 2002. The rapper used his recent guest spot on Fat Joe’s new song, “Lord Above,” to hit out at the actor-comedian and his ex-wife Mariah Carey.
In case you missed it, Em referenced his alleged relationship with Carey (which she has long denied) and trashed Cannon in his “Lord Above” verse. “I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note / But that other dude’s whipped, that pussy got him neutered,” he spits. “Almost got my caboose kicked / Fool, quit / You not gonna do shit / I let her chop my balls off too before I lose to you, Nick.”
Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for Cannon to retaliate. On Monday night, the comedian dropped a diss track titled “The Invitation.” Featuring Suge Knight, Hitman Holla, Charlie Clips and Prince Eazy, the four-minute song challenges Em to a rap battle on Cannon’s freestyle show, Wild’N Out. “This is your invitation. To prove to everybody else what you’re about. Winner takes all,” Suge announces at the top of the track.
But Cannon declined, instead dropping another diss track called “Pray for Him.” On it, Cannon links up with The Black Squad to continue poking fun at Em’s age and past drug addictions. At one point, he even called the rapper a Donald Trump supporter.
