Royce Da 5’9” has words for Lil Pump after Eminem diss
“You actually make money off blatant misappropriation while not really being good at anything,” Nickel Nine fired back.
Lil Pump reemerged last night (Dec. 24) to issue a seemingly unprovoked diss against Eminem. While the Music To Be Murdered By rapper has not yet responded, his good friend and collaborator of over 20 years — Royce Da 5’9” — has. The “Upside Down” spitter hopped on the ‘Gram to offer his own rebuttal to Pump’s criticism and also call him out for cultural appropriation.
“I’ll slap them glasses so far off his face, they’ll land in a whole nother genre,” he commented. “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 really being good at anything,” Royce added.
The rebuke comes after Pump said “Fuck Eminem” in an Instagram video shared Thursday night.
“Aye, fuck Eminem,” Pump said in the clip. “You is lame as hell. Ain’t nobody listening to your old ass. You lame as fuck, bitch.”
The diss seemingly came out of nowhere, although Eminem did name-drop Pump on his 2018 Kamikaze track “The Ringer” while mocking his mumble rap flow.
Others assumed the diss meant Pump was returning to his social media trolling ways. This fall, the Miami native made headlines for endorsing Donald Trump for reelection. He was later brought onstage at one of Trump’s rallies, where the president mistakenly introduced him as “Little Pimp.”
“I love your sound; I love your music,” Trump had said to the crowd. “And speaking of sounds, music and other things — one of the big superstars of the world — Little Pimp.”
Pump later embraced the slip-up on social media and changed his Instagram name to “Little Pimp.” While at the rally, he told the audience, “I come here to say, Mr. President, I appreciate everything you’ve done for our country. You brought the troops home and you’re doing the right thing. MAGA 20, 20, 20. Don’t forget that.”
