Eminem can’t stop making enemies. Over his 18-year career, the rapper, 42, has found himself in conflict with everyone from Christina Aguilera to Moby, and just added two more celebrities to his list: singer Lana Del Rey and rapper Azealia Banks.
On Monday, Nov. 10, Marshall Mathers released a freestyle rap video “SHADYXV – THE CXVPHER” in promotion of his upcoming Shady XV compilation album.
At one point during the collaboration with Slaughterhouse and YelaWolf, Eminem calls out Del Rey and threatens violence against her, citing the Ray Rice scandal as well.
“But I may fight for gay rights, especially if they dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice / Play nice?” Eminem raps in the video, referencing the former Baltimore Ravens player, who made headlines for his abusive relationship with wife Janay. “Bitch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance / ‘Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.” Watch the controversial video here.
“West Coast” singer Del Rey, 29, has yet to comment on Eminem’s misogynistic lyrics. She previously spoke highly of the rapper, telling Italian publication RNB Junk in 2012, “Eminem is the master of lyrics whereas Frank Sinatra is the master of vocals… I f—ing love Eminem.”
By taking shots at Del Rey, Eminem also found himself falling out of Banks’ good graces. The “Young and Beautiful” singer recently tweeted at her pal Banks, saying “love my one and only girl xxx.”
The “212” rapper returned the favor on Monday, standing up for Del Rey after Eminem’s video made the rounds. “@LanaDelRey tell him to go back to his trailer park and eat his microwave hotpocket dinner and suck on his sisters tiddies,” Banks, 23, tweeted.
