Rapper Eminem is no stranger to controversy. He thrives on it.
That was then. Now, as the rapper’s latest CD is about to be released, some lyrics on his newest effort are being called into question.
Little gay-looking boy / So gay I can barely say it with a straight face-looking boy / You witnessing massacre like you watching a church gathering taking place-looking boy / ‘Oy vey, that boy’s gay,’ that’s all they say looking-boy / You take a thumbs up, pat on the back, the way you go from your label every day-looking boy.
I attempt these lyrical acrobat stunts while I’m practicing that / I’ll still be able to break a motherfuckin’ table / Over the back of a couple of faggots and crack it in half / Only realized it was ironic I was signed to Aftermath after the fact
The new release, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, is also being called divine by early critics. Will that protect Eminem from GLAAD or other organizations which typically revolt when such language is used in the creative space?
