Eminem has revealed that he went “too far” during his diss track aimed at Tyler, The Creator, after receiving backlash for using a homophobic slur.
The Detroit legend made headlines by dissing a number of rappers on his surprise album ‘Kamikaze’ and aimed some harsh lyrics at the Odd Future boss on a song called ‘Fall’.
On the controversial track, Eminem rapped: "Tyler create nothin', I see why you called yourself a (f*ggot)/It's not just 'cause you lack attention/ It's because you worship D12's balls, you're sack-religious."
However during the latest instalment of his interview with Sway Calloway, Eminem has admitted he now regrets those lyrics.
“I think the word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like this might be too far.
“Because in my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it. It was one of the things that I kept going back to and going ‘I don’t feel right with this.’”
When asked about his reasons for dissing Tyler, The Creator on his ‘Kamikaze’ album, Eminem explained that he was not happy with some of his tweets about 2014 project ‘Shady XV’.
At the time, Tyler, The Creator told fans that “if you still follow Eminem, you drink way too much Mountain Dew.”
“I was like, really? What the f*ck,” Eminem told Sway.
“You guys were just on tour with us, we hung out, we kicked it, made jokes.”
Meanwhile, Eminem also recently addressed his explosive feud with Machine Gun Kelly during a previous instalment of the interview.
The rapper told fans that he is currently waiting before releasing a diss track response to MGK’s song ‘Rap Devil’.
