On Thursday Fat Joe delivered his Family Ties album, a new project that features a wealth of fire guest artists including Mary J. Blige, Dre, and Eminem, all of whom come together on the track “Lord Above.” And, thanks to Eminem’s verse on that song, we’ve just been reminded of one of the messiest beefs in music history — his feud with Mariah Carey. One of the targets of the diss, Mariah’s ex-husband, Nick Cannon responded to Em’s disrespectful comments yesterday.
On his Power 107 FM show, Nick Cannon Mornings, the entertainer had some choice words for Eminem. “We should change his name from Eminem to, like, Percocet. What’s the pill that old people take? We gon’ call him Cialis,” Cannon said of the 47-year-old rapper, while dressed as Santa. “Bring your walker, get out your wheelchair Eminem, and pop whatever you wanna pop. Should I respond back to this? It’s not worthy of a response.” He then proceeded to mimic Eminem’s delivery on the track. When his co-host interjected saying “He’s a legend, though,” Cannon replied, “No he’s not.” Check out Cannon’s response below.
On “Lord Above”, Eminem brings up his now decade-long issues with the former couple Cannon and Carey — a saga that began with Em saying that he and Mariah had dated, a claim that she constantly rejected. That situation lead to a number of diss tracks and verses from both parties, with Eminem also throwing insults at Mariah’s then-husband, Cannon.
Fat Joe has dubbed Em’s “Lord Above” verse as his “most disrespectful song” to date, and the lyrics go as follows:
“Word to the Terror Squad, Joe, this is all puns aside though / I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note / But that other dude’s whipped, that pussy got him neutered / Tried to tell him this chick’s a nut job before he got his jewels clipped / Almost got my caboose kicked, fool, quit, you not gon’ do shit / I let her chop my balls off, too ‘fore I lost to you, Nick.”
