Eminem is one of the most influential rappers that has ever graced the planet and he's got a history of taking down anyone who gets in his way with some scathing lyrics. The last person in his scope was Machine Gun Kelly, who got destroyed with the lyrics 'How you gonna name yourself after a f****** gun and have a man bun?' in his song Killshot.
However, Eminem has been around a very long time which means he's had a lot of beef with a lot of different people. One of most famous spats was with creepy musician, Moby who recently got a 'vegan for life' tattoo on his neck. Eminem has had plenty of spats in his time, here's what he had to say about Moby.
The feud all kicked off at the 2001 Grammys, when Moby called Eminem misogynistic, homophobic and anti-semitic. Not one to take insults lying down, Eminem dissed Moby in the song Without Me, ridiculing his age and threatening to have his former protege Obie Trice assault the electronic musician. It got so heated that Eminem even challenged Moby to a fight at the 2002 MTV VMAs.
After the show, Moby did praise Eminem for his talent but did mention that he was shocked at how angry the rapper was as they'd never met before. He even made a valid point that telling Moby to 'blow him' is actually homophobic. Moby wrote a post about how troubled he was by Eminems' glorification of homophobia and misogyny given his influence on America's youth.
Here are the lyrics in question:
I go tit for tat with anybody who's talking this s*** and that s***
Chris Kirkpatrick, you can get your ass kicked
Worse than them little Limp Bizkit b******
And Moby, you can get stomped by Obie
You thirty six year old bald headed f**, blow me
You don't know me, you're too old, let it go its over
Nobody listens to Techno
Now lets go, just give me the signal
I'll be there with a whole list full of new insults
I've been dope, suspenseful with a pencil
Ever since Prince turned himself into a symbol
But sometimes this s*** just seems
Everybody only wants to discuss me
So this must mean I'm disgusting
But it's just me I'm just obscene
