Nick Cannon says Eminem sent his lawyers after him after dropping off his vicious diss track, “The Invitation,” featuring Suge Knight.
The former host of America’s Got Talent is currently in the midst of a bitter feud with Eminem, and the rapper had is getting the law involved. The battle began on Friday — or in 2009, depending on when you start counting. Eminem alleges that he had a 6-month relationship with Mariah Carey around that time, a claim which the “Always Be My Baby” singer vehemently denies. The pair decided to use their vocals to argue their respective sides — Eminem in the tracks “Bagpipes from Baghdad” and “The Warning,” and Mariah in “Obsessed.”
A decade later, Slim Shady has still not let the matter lie, and on Friday, release a joint single with Fat Joe called “Lord Above,” in which he makes reference to both Mariah and her ex-husband Nick. Following its release, Cannon ripped Em on his radio show, telling him to fetch his walker and his wheelchair. Just days later, he went a step further (walker excluded) and dropped a diss track of his own.
Together with Suge Knight, the 39-year-old insinuates on “The Invitation” that Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, is raising a child that is not even his, by mentioning the name of his ex-wife and daughter: “Call Kim, somebody get Hailie and that other kid you raising that ain’t even your baby / Took a page out of Drake book, this might get a Grammy / We going back to back until you respond on the family / My baby mama killed you off a decade ago / You still crying about it b***h, now who really the h**.”
However, it is a later lyric that has really gotten Nick in trouble. “I heard your chauffeur got a video of you suckin’ a c*ck / You paid him off, then laid him off, now who really the opp?” he raps.
Taking to Twitter, Nick revealed that Em’s attorneys had made contact about the track, saying, “His lawyers didn’t want that one out! They already on my line.”
