Eminem and Jamar’s beef stemmed from a 2014 interview, in which the rapper-cultural-commentator said he wasn’t a fan of Em’s music because he didn’t find it relatable.
It seems like the beef between Eminem and Lord Jamar is not going to be over anytime soon. Em, who is currently touring overseas with Mr. Porter, appeared to take their feud to another level as he took aim at the former Brand Nubian rapper during his concert in Abu Dhabi.
During the Friday, October 25 gig, Eminem took a brief pause in his performance. The Detroit star, who has been exchanging insults with Jamar, didn’t mince words when he dissed the latter.
“I had a dream that I was a f***ing nobody who sucked at rap,” Em said in the video that circulated online. “And then I woke up, and you know who I was Mr. Porter?”
Porter then asked, “Who?!” to which the “Marshall Mathers” spitter replied, “Lord Jamar.”
Eminem and Jamar’s beef stemmed from a 2014 interview, in which the rapper-cultural-commentator told DJ Vlad that he wasn’t a fan of Em’s music because it was something he couldn’t relate to. Em responded to the statement through his 2018 song “Fall” off his album “Kamikaze”.
“And far as Lord Jamar, you better leave me the hell alone/ Or I’ll show you an Elvis clone,” Em rapped on the track. “Walk up in this house you own, thrust my pelvic bone/ Use your telephone and go fetch me the remote/ Put my feet up and just make myself at home/ I belong here, clown, don’t tell me ’bout the culture.”
The diss track didn’t go unnoticed by Jamar, who later let world know that he wasn’t impressed. “If he didn’t respond, I win, and if he responds, I win,” Jamar said in a 2018 interview. “Either way, I win, okay? Because you are now doing what the f**k I wanted you to do. I have made you modify your behavior. I got into your psyche.”
