Every once in a while some random artist takes shots at Eminem. A lot of the time, this is done as means of clout-chasing–an act that sheds some spotlight on the scavenging artist courtesy of the much more popular and respected artist’s name mentioned in the drama. Last week, Lil Pump dissed Eminem on Instagram stories, seemingly out of nowhere.
Lil Pump went on to say “Fk Eminem. You is lame as hell, ain’t nobody listening to your old ass. You lame as fk, b*h! .”
Now, to the credit of Lil Pump, these three sentences are better constructed than the entire discography of Lil Pump. The “Gucci Gang” star has two albums under his name that has sold 1 million copies collectively since 2017. So, now that we covered the entire music career of Lil Pump, let’s focus on the diss.
Just before this classic diss dropped out, Eminem had released his second studio album for 2020; ‘Music to Be Murdered By: Side B.’ Although Eminem does jab and namedrops several artists throughout this album, there is no mention of Lil Pump anywhere.
The only time Lil Pump was on Eminem’s radar was during his 2018 project ‘Kamikaze.’ In the song “The Ringer,” Eminem drops a few names of mumble rappers whom he would destroy should they cross his path; “So finger-bang, chicken wang, MGK, Iggy ‘zae/Lil Pump, Lil Xan imitate Lil Wayne/I should aim at everybody in the game, pick a name.”
And Lil Pump responded;
So, that little back-and-forth was done.
In the same song, Eminem defines ‘clout-chasing’;
So, there really is no reason for Lil Pump to diss Eminem in 2020, unless for the obvious reason of clout-chasing. Lil Pump has not been in the stories lately except for endorsing ex-president Donald Trump, which turned out to be a big L.
Alright, now let’s see the responses Lil Pump got for dissing Eminem.
One of Eminem’s closest friends, Royce da 5’9″ had a lot to unpack on Instagram; “I’ll slap them glasses so far off his face, they’ll land in a whole nother genre … Not cuz I’m mad but just cuz I’m exhausted with all the tuff talk from all these harmless creatures … Enjoy yourself. You actually make money off blatant misappropriation while not being really good at anything … 🌹”
This little “whole nother genre” jab is a reminder about the last guy who went against Eminem–Machine Gun Kelly. After their prolific rap battle in 2018, which produced “Rap Devil” by MGK and “KILLSHOT” by Eminem, Machine Gun Kelly changed his genre from hip-hop to pop-punk on his 2020 album ‘Tickets to My Downfall.’
Hip-hop legends Public Enemy had a more sarcastic tone on the whole situation; “Yo @lilpump go battle @Eminem. Let’s see how that goes 😂”
And Chuck D, one of the founding members of the same group, came up with some statistics; “To Lil pump : Last time i was in the same building as @Eminem it was a 2019 stadium w 63,623 paid fanatics. This was 2 weeks after opening up a concert of 750,000 in Milan Italy.I mean people can make up whatever in their individual heads but promoting your mind as truth is crazy.”
Another friend and long-time collaborator of Eminem, KXNG Crooked also laughed at the situation; “Imagine Eminem vs Lil Pump.”
Paul Rosenberg, Eminem’s manager, appropriately responded; “I can not.”
One of Eminem’s best friends late rapper Proof’s son, Nasaan just said “Lol F*** @lilpump.”
The infamous Forbes magazine had the following on the whole situation; “Eminem could squash Pump like a bug if he wanted to, and it would arguably be the lowest-hanging fruit of his career.”
Here’s one of the biggest Stans on the platform, NoLifeShqa, responding to Lil Pump because Eminem isn’t going to.
Here are some statistics to prove that “nobody listens to Eminem”;
Did Eminem respond to the Lil Pump diss? Maybe… The below Tweet came after Lil Pump’s diss blew up on the Internet. Not to worry, Eminem didn’t actually spend time to create these lines just for Lil Pump. These are lyrics from Em’s track “Book of Rhymes.”
