Eminem Disses Iggy Azalea on ‘Vegas,’ Rapper Fires Back
Eminem is known for his raw and occasionally vulgar rhymes, which has put him at the top of controversial lyrics lists several times throughout his career. With the new Shady Records’ ‘Shady XV’ album right around the corner, Marshall Mathers is finding himself on the chopping block again. This time, it's for a song dissing Iggy Azalea.
'Vegas' is the track and features both Em and Royce da 5’9’’ as Bad Meets Evil. Slim Shady takes aim at the ‘Fancy’ rapper, threatening to sexually assault her.
“So swallow my pride you’re lucky just to follow my ride / If I let you run alongside the Humvee / Unless you’re Nicki, grab you by the wrist, let’s ski / So what’s it gon’ be? Put that s--- away Iggy / You don’t wanna blow that rape whistle on me. Scream! I love it / ‘Fore I get lost with the gettin’ off," he spits with vigor.
Iggy wasn't too fond of the lines in the song, firing back on Twitter. "im bored of the old men threatening young women as entertainment trend and much more interested in the young women getting $ trend. zzzz," she wrote.
Unfortunately, the misogynistic verse is "especially awkward" for her 14-year-old brother, who she says is a huge fan of Em.
While mentioning rape and Iggy Azalea in the same sentence is a no, no, especially after Rick Ross and other rappers where penalized for similar lyrics, Em continues to remain true to his roots. The Detroit MC has threatened to kill his ex-wife on past records and even took jabs at Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon and Britney Spears, among others. His latest lyrical jab involves Lana Del Rey, which he calls out in the 'Shady CXVpher.'
