Exclusive Eminem Freestyle on Sway In The Morning
Marshall Mathers denies remarks are offensive.
Eminem dropped a rare freestyle on US radio show Sway In The Morning.
The Detroit rapper performed on his own Shade 45 SiriusXM channel to promote his soundtrack for boxing flick 'Southpaw'.
In the eight minute long acapella freestyle, Eminem targeted a number of celebrities and politicians. Among those that were pilloried by the rapper were US presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, popstar Miley Cyrus and '212' rapper Azalea Banks.
They join an ever-growing list of famous figures who have been insulted by the rapper, including Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Gianni Versace, Pamela Anderson, Jennifer Lopez, Insane Clown Posse and even his longtime mentor and producer Dr. Dre.
Eminem also faced accusations of transphobia for his lyrics aimed at Caitlyn Jenner. “This a true statement, I see the bitch in you, Caitlyn,” he rapped, “I keep the pistol tucked like Bruce Jenner’s d*ck / No disrespect though, not at all / No pun intended, that took a lot of balls.”
Mathers has previously rejected accusations that his raps are offensive to the LGBT community. “The real me sitting here right now talking to you has no issues with gay, straight, transgender, at all,” he told Rolling Stone in 2013. “I’m glad we live in a time where it’s really starting to feel like people can live their lives and express themselves.”
After finishing his freestyle, Eminem denied his comments were intended to offend telling Sway: "The rhyme by the way, it's all in the fun by the way... I just say s**t to say it, it's very rarely ever personal".
