Someone Reimagined Eminem's My Name Is In 2021 And It Sounds Scarily Real

Have you ever wondered what Eminem's 'My Name Is' would sound like if he had written it in 2021?

Well, someone has recreated the 1999 hit from The Slim Shady LP with AI tech, and it actually sounds like it could be him.

The clever remake includes updated lyrics that talk about Billie Eilish, K Pop stars and Donald Trump - all which would be very likely targets for Eminem in reality.

His voice sounds just like the real thing, and is created using vocal synthesizers - all very complicated. And it looks like deep fake music could well present an issue for the music industry.

For example, if you didn't want to pay the going rate for using music in films, TV shows or adverts, you could potentially just make your own that sounds the exact same - and as it stands, this is legal, the Guardian reports.

It also means that music streaming services could use similar sounding AI tracks for genre playlists, which means they don't have to pay royalties - therefore increasing their own profits.

But that's not the only issue with the remake, which has been created by 30 Hertz - who is responsible for a whole load of deepfake parodies.

In case you missed it, along with Friends, skinny jeans and side partings, Gen-Z want 48-year-old Eminem completely cancelled.

Despite the fact that being a savage, controversial personality is kind of his 'thing', 'Zoomers' have taken issue with the lyrics for 2010 track 'Love The Way You Lie', the song he did with Rihanna.

The lyrics in question are: "If she ever tries to f***ing leave again, I'ma tie her/to the bed and set this house on fire."

I mean, it's not great is it, but if they think that's bad, they will lose their s*** when they hear The Marshall Mathers LP.

Gen Zers believe the song glorifies toxic relationships and violence against women - though they clearly didn't research enough to see that Megan Fox, who appeared in the music video for the song, donated her appearance fee to a women's shelter for domestic violence.

Eminem himself has responded to the criticism of his music, taking aim at cancel culture in his new track 'Tone Deaf'.

In the track, Eminem raps: "I can't understand a word you say (I'm tone-deaf)/ I think this way I prefer to stay (I'm tone-deaf)/ I won't stop even when my hair turns grey (I'm tone-deaf)/ 'Cause they won't stop until they cancel me."
