When Eminem got word that this could be Fat Joe’s last album, he knew he had to bless the project with a guest verse as a longtime friend of Joey Crack’s. Fat Joe wasn’t messing around when he called “Lord Above” the “most disrespectful song,” which released on Friday (Dec. 6) alongside his Family Ties album featuring Mary J. Blige.
Em rekindled his feud with Nick Cannon and Cannon’s ex Mariah Carey firing a few more shots in their direction before the decade comes to a close in a few weeks. Shady dissed Cannon by calling him “whipped” and “neutered” throughout the controversial assist.
“I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note/ But that other dude’s whipped, that p—y got him neutered/ Tried to tell him this chick’s a nut job before he got his jewels clipped/ Almost got my caboose kicked, fool, quit, you not gon’ do s–t/ I let her chop my balls off, too ‘fore I lost to you, Nick,” he raps.
The Detroit native’s malicious bars seemingly come in response to Nick Cannon speaking on his willingness to fight Eminem in defense of his wife during an appearance on T.I.’s ExpediTIously podcast earlier in 2019. “I think we were flying back on a jet from Africa or somewhere and this motherfucker drops a song, like, talking shit,” he said of Em’s “The Warning.” “Calling her all kinds of b–ches and h–s. I’m like, ‘This is my wife. This is my new wife.’”
Cannon actually wrote a letter to Em to put an end to him talking about his wife or there would be consequences. “I wrote a letter first, I don’t even know if Twitter had come out yet,” he explained. “[It said] ‘Look, I respect you as an artist, I’m actually a fan, and I think you’re one of the best to ever do it. But from man to man, you are talking out of pocket to my wife. You gotta be held accountable for that, so I need to see you face to face. Whatever happens when we face to face happens.”
