Eminem is one of the best-selling musicians of the 21st century – bagging multiple grammy awards and VMA’s for his albums, including the iconic The Slim Shady and The Marshall Mathers. As well as his quick and improvised bars, Eminem has become famous for his highly-publicized feuds and controversial lyrics.
The rapper has dropped a surprise new album today and there’s been a huge response online. Although one of the tracks may have crossed the line, one of the others has broken his all-time rapping speed record.

He wouldn’t be Slim Shady without them though, would he?
So before we delve into the talk around his latest album featuring his newest fueds, let’s have a look at his most famous ones.
On the 2009 track, “Underground/Ken Kaniff,” Eminem raps, “Hannah Montana, prepare to elope with a can opener and be cut open like cantaloupe on canopy beds.”
That’s pretty brutal.
She’s even a fan of the rapper, tweeting that he’s a “legend.”
Okay, this one is a personal favorite.
Slim shady certainly isn’t afraid to get political. So much so that he alluded to killing former president, George Bush, in one of his songs.
In the uncensored version of the star’s song “We As Americans,” which was leaked in 2003, lyrics like, “I don’t rap for dead presidents, I’d rather see the president dead,” were featured.
His threatening lyrics landed the rapper in some quite serious trouble, with the Secret Service saying that they were viewing the song as a threat.
However, in the end, no charges were ever brought against the rapper.
Okay, so this feud isn’t exactly personal, but the rapper rapped some pretty brutal lines about the model and Bay Watch actress in his famed track, “My Name Is” from his 1999 album, The Slim Shady.
“Got p*ssed off and ripped Pamela Lee’s t*ts off
And smacked her so hard I knocked her clothes backwards like Kris Kross.”
On “The Real Slim Shady,” he alludes to her domestic abuse charges against ex-husband, rockstar, Tommy Lee, too.
“Jaws all on the floor like Pam and Tommy just burst in the door
And started whooping her a*s worse than before
They first were divorced, throwing her over furniture (Ah!)”
In 1998, Lee was sentenced to 6 months in Los Angeles County Jail for assaulting Anderson.
The feud between the rapper and late-singing legend, Michael Jackson, began in 2004 when Eminem released “Just Lose It.”
The music video alludes to Jackson’s alleged sexual behavior with young boys, including the lyrics:
“I done touched on everything, but little boys
That’s not a stab at Michael
That’s just a metaphor, I’m just psycho.”
He also expressed his hurt towards the rapper and said that the video was “disrespectful.”
“I’ve never had a problem with Eminem… I’ve admired Eminem as an artist and was shocked by this… The video was inappropriate and disrespectful to me, my children, my family and the community at large,” he said at the time.
It’s no secret that Donald Trump doesn’t have a lot of fans, and Eminem certainly hasn’t held back from expressing his views on the president.
In October 2017, the rapper released a freestyle targeted at President Donald Trump, concluding with the lines:
“And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line. You’re either for or against, and if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for it for you with this. F*ck you.”
The track is full of other savage lines aimed at the president, including a line in which he calls Trump a “kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust,” and a lyric accusing him of giving “support for the Klansman.”
The beef between Eminem and singer, Christina Aguilera, started when Aguilera called him out for his violent lyrics targeted at his ex-wife, Kim, in which he alludes to killing her.
Then, in 2000, Eminem released the notorious “The Real Slim Shady,” in which he included a lyric about Christina Aguilera sexually servicing Fred Durst.
Of course, Aguilera clapped back, calling the line “disgusting… offensive and, above all… not true.”
Aguilera released her own parody track in response to the rappers dig, entitled “Will the Real Slim Shady Please Shut Up.”
But the saga continued when, last year, Eminem released a freestyle called “Kick Off” and once again alluded to Aguilera in a sexual nature.
When asked about the lyrics on What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Aguilera said: “Get a new gig… have something else to talk about.”
This particular feud all began when rumors circulated that Eminem and Mariah Carey had once had an affair, though Carey denied the entire thing.
Attempting to keep the rumors at bay, the singer said: “Did I have a sexual relationship with him? No, I didn’t… I knew him, I hung out with him a few times, but nothing sexual occurred… Maybe he thought because nothing happened he’d look bad or something.”
True to his reputation, he fought back with a track, subtly named “Puke.”
In 2005, he played voicemails reportedly from Carey, and pretended to vomit.
Later, Carey, released “Obsessed,” which many people speculate is about the rapper.
The rapper turned up the heat on his existing feud with singer, Mariah Carey, when he told her then-spouse, Nick Cannon, that she’d cheated on him.
In his track, appropriately titled “The Warning,” Eminem raps:
“Wow Mariah, didn’t expect you to go balls out
B*tch shut the f*ck up, ‘fore I put all them phone calls out
You made to my house when you was (Wild’n Out) before Nick
When you was on my d*ck and give you somethin’ to smile about
How many times you fly to my house, still tryin’ to count
Better shut your lyin’ mouth if you don’t want Nick findin’ out.”
“The way the Eminem thing started was that I never had an issue with him… If anything, I’ve been one of his biggest fans, but when another man crosses a line of disrespect, then you got to deal with it,” he said.
Looks like the rapper well and truly lost a fan.
Eminem vs Debbie Mathers, aka his mom.
Taking the top spot is the long-documented, notorious feud that the rapper had with his mom, Debbie Mathers.
On several occasions, the star has referenced his turbulent childhood in his lyrics. Most famously, he throws a huge dig at his mom in the 2002 single, “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” in which raps his well-known rhyme, alluding to his mom’s drug abuse issues:
“Just try to envision
Witnessing your mama popping prescription pills in the kitchen…
Victim of Munchhausen’s Syndrome
My whole life I was made to believe I was sick when I wasn’t
‘Til I grew up, now I blew up, it makes you sick to ya stomach.”
Today the rapper dropped a surprise new album, titled Music to be Murdered By.
And it’s been quite the talk of Twitter, to say the least…
Including the likes of Ed Sheeran, Royce Da 5’9″, Anderson .Paak, and Skylar Grey.
But there’s one that everyone is talking about…
He features on the track titled “Godzilla.”
The up and coming star died aged 21 following a suspected drug-induced seizure at Chicago Midway airport in December.
“Man Juice Wrld on this new Eminem album hits different now! RIP,” wrote one Twitter user.
The star has come massively under fire for one of his tracks, in particular.
Just hours after the album’s release, one of the tracks titled “Unaccommodating,” began attracting unwanted attention – with many branding the rapper “disgusting.”
Why? Because he referenced the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing.

And the rapper’s reference to the tragedy has sparked an influx of criticism.
“I am disgusted how did he or his team think this was okay? he’s trash,” wrote an outraged Twitter user.
People flocked to Twitter today to express their outrage at the lyrics.
While addressing his feud with Machine Gun Kelly, Eminem raps the line against a backdrop of bomb sound effects:
“But I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game/Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting.”
Everyone has been blown away by the sheer speed of his lyrics in one of his new songs called “Godzilla.”
But while he may be able to spit some mean bars really quickly, we can’t ignore the fact that he’s clearly got a few issues with his lyrics.
Fix up, Slim.
