Eminem is currently being criticized for rapping in a new freestyle track that he ‘punch Lana Del Rey in the Face’ just as former NFL player Ray Rice did to his wife Janay Rice.
The veteran rapper dropped the offending lyrics in the 18-minute freestyle track called SHADY CXVPHER which featured other Shady Records artists doing what they know best.
The verse in question says, ‘But I may fight for gay rights, especially if the d*ke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice/ Play nice? B*tch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance / ’Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.’
As you will remember, Rice’s assault on his then-fiance occurred in a hotel elevator, sparking an outrage that ultimately ended his NFL career. Why Eminem decided to go after Del Rey is still unknown.
