The rap wars are on again — kind of.
A new Eminem track brings the heat between the Detroit rapper and hip hop rivals Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon to scorching levels.
Slim Shady’s new song, ‘The Warning’, is the latest in a series of public shots the respective hip hop powerhouses have taken at one another this year, revolving around an alleged sexual relationship that Eminem swears by, but (the now-married) Carey denies.
Lyrics from the tune include: “Oh gee, is that supposed to be me in the video with the goatee?, wow Mariah, didn’t expect ya to go [expletive] out, [expletive], shut the [expletive] up before I put all those phone calls out, when you was wilding out, before Nick, when you was on my [expletive].”
The feud started with Eminem’s 2009 single, ‘Bagpipes From Baghdad’, drew some angry reactions from the couple. In Carey’s recent single, ‘Obsessed’, she sings about a stalker character believed to be a spoof of Eminem.
