In a new leaked Eminem track, the Detroit rapper mentioned Nick Cannon’s wifey, Mariah Carey, and Cannon ain’t having it. In a blog entry posted on Cannon’s official website on Friday (May 8), Nick says that Em crossed the line when he called out his wife by name, and has taken offense to it.
Nick says that, at first, he thought it was an old verse, but when he heard his name in Em’s rhyme, the realization came that it was new.
“I further examine the track, I hear dude cross the line. He begins to call my wife out of her name,” Nick writes. “Now as y’all know, I don’t take that type of nonsense lightly. So on some grown man sh** I’m instantly like, ‘I got to get at this lame.’ I know it’s only entertainment and I’m all for freedom of speech. But I’m from the school of thought where if you are tough enough to talk sh**, you got to be tough enough to deal with the consequences that come with tough guy shit talking! Then the little angel on my shoulder said, “No Nicholas, there is no need to play into his negativity. He is just a troubled soul yearning for the lost spotlight. You must be Christ like and turn the other cheek.
“But then the dude on the other shoulder said, ‘What N****?! Is you scared?! You can’t let no man ever disrespect your wife! Especially not some Peroxide drenched homophobic has-been! This is like some Pacquiao vs. Hatton shit! He is underestimating you with his ass out and you can drop him in the first round,” he continued.
The track in which Em references Mariah and Nick is titled “Bagpipes From Baghdad,” and leaked earlier this week.
Here’s a few lines from the track:
“Okay, let me see. How can I begin, locked in Mariah’s wine cellar / All I had for lunch was bread wine, more bread wine than Cap ‘n Crunch / Red wine for breakfast and for brunch / And to soak it up in-between snack crackers to munch / Mariah what ever happened to us/Why did we ever have to break-up / Well all I asked her was for a glass of punch / You see I never really asked for much / I can imagine what’s going through your mind after such a nasty break-up with that laughing hump/Nick Cannon, you better back the f*** up / I’m not playing.”
Nick didn’t much like the snub, calling Eminem’s claims of dating Carey in the past “fabrications,” and even went on to call his verse an “act of racist bigotry” that “cannot go unnoticed.”
“At first I thought it was old material that had been dug up from when dude ‘fantasized’ about having a pretend fling with Mariah,” Nick writes. “I was thinking to myself, ‘Hey that was before me so it is really none of my business, so I’m going to give him a pass.’
“…Maybe I’m going too far, but I thought we got passed the days where white men could spew vulgar obscenities at our beautiful queens and get away with it. What’s next? Are we going to let this trash say something horrible about our lovely first lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama? Or would Marshall have talked sideways out of his neck like this about Oprah Winfrey? This act of racist bigotry cannot go unnoticed. Calling my wife a ‘cunt’ and a ‘whore’ is way worse than anything Don Imus could have ever said. So trust, repercussions will be served. Anybody got Al Sharpton’s number?! LOL,” he later adds.
Before ending his blog response, Nick Cannon warns Em that he’s gonna take an “L” when their quarrel is over with, and he’s ready to take it wherever the rapper wants to go with it.
“Even though I got a lot of other obligations and occupations, you are my new full time job ‘homey,” Nick writes. “As a matter of fact I think you going to bring my wack rhymes out of retirement! That’s right haters; you can thank Eminem because I’m going to start rapping again! LOL Just for him! And don’t forget about the jokes! We coming at you hard body!! Non-stop on your manic-depressive-insecure-Maclovin-Nazi- Liza Minelli haircut havin-lookin ass!! [Pause] That’s what I do all day Bitch!
“Miss Marshall, I’m going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife,” Nick concludes. “This is going to be fun! It’s however you want it! Just remember, you did this to yourself! Your legacy has now been tainted from this day forth! You will now be known as the rapper who lost to corny-ass Nick Cannon!!!”
