Eminem Mocked Elvis Dying On A Toilet Years Before Making Official Song For His New Movie

Eminem Mocked Elvis Dying On A Toilet Years Before Making Official Song For His New Movie

The rapper has dropped 'The King and I', featuring CeeLo Green, as part of the Elvis soundtrack

A few years back, in a video for one of his most famous songs, Eminem made fun of the fact Elvis Presley died on the toilet – which is pretty awks, considering the rapper just dropped an official song for a new movie about the King of Rock and Roll.

Earlier today, 16 June, Marshall Mathers made the announcement of the new song 'The King and I', featuring CeeLo Green, as part of the Elvis biopic soundtrack.

Slim posted a link to the song on his socials and captioned it: "If you came to rock/ and you never gave a f**k #thekingandi ft. @ceelogreen OUT NOW."

You can listen to a snippet of the new single below (it contains some strong language):

However, back in 2002, Eminem released 'Without Me' from his fourth studio album The Eminem Show.

The music video featured Shady in a crazy Elvis-inspired outfit while appearing to mock the King's death by pulling a sandwich from the toilet and eating it.

Some believe that Elvis died from constipation after he ate a banana and peanut butter sandwich, while the general consensus was that he suffered a heart attack in his Graceland bathroom after suffering from a series of health issues, including glaucoma, high blood pressure, liver damage, and an enlarged colon.

'Without Me' was released back in 2002.

Although, in the lyrics to the actual song, the rapper compares himself to Elvis, as a white man succeeding commercially in a predominantly Black art form. 

Elvis started out as a country singer, and the genre originated from a descendant of blues and folk music, which began as a Black musical tradition.

Eminem also became a star in the Hip/Hop scene, which was a genre founded by Black people.

Shady raps: "But it’s just me, I’m just obscene. Though I’m not the first king of controversy, I am the worst thing since Elvis Presley.

To do Black music so selfishly. And use it to get myself wealthy. There’s a concept that works. Twenty million other white rappers emerge.

"But no matter how many fish in the sea. It’d be so empty without me."

Fast forward to 2022, in his new track, Eminem raps the lyrics: "Me and Elvis gelled together like cellmates.”

Then after CeeLo hits the chorus, Eminem adds: "Rap is my new Vicodin, Moxin is how I treat it. Still goin’ toe-to-toe, I’m still boxing with all my demons. A couple Xanny bars and I’m Danny Gar–, see-ya.

"Been stuntin’ on you from the jump like Evel Knievel. I’m back in the cut and stackin’ chips up like a can of Pringles.

"Sometimes I feel like Pete Rose, I got so many hit singles. B*tch, I barely have any free throws, you sleepin’ on me like I’m ZzzQuil."
