Eminem reignited his decade-old beef with Nick Cannon when he called out the “Wild ‘N Out” host by name in Fat Joe’s track, “Lord Above.”
“I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note/ But that other dude’s whipped, that pu**y got him neutered/ Tried to tell him this chick’s a nutjob ‘fore he got his jewels clipped/ Almost got my caboose kicked/ Fool, quit, you not gon’ do sh*t/ I let her chop my balls off too ‘fore I lost to you, Nick,” he rapped.
Cannon, of course, fired back with his own Suge Knight, Hitman Holla, Charlie Clips and Prince Eazy-featuring diss track aimed at Em, called “The Invitation.”
“We going back to back ‘til you respond on the family/ My baby-mama killed you off a decade ago/ You’re still cryin’ about it, bi**h, now who really the hoe?” Cannon raps in the track, later accusing Eminem of being gay.
In a new interview, TMZ went straight to the source of this beef—Fat Joe. Em’s beef-reigniting verse appears on Joe’s newly released Family Ties album, so the outlet asked for the New York mainstay’s opinion.
“I’m an innocent bystander!” he claimed, refusing to take a side.
“I love Nick Cannon, he’s a good guy,” he said. “Eminem’s a very good friend of mine, and they got their little personal hip hop thing going.”
While Joe wouldn’t outright say who he thinks is winning the feud, he did give Eminem some props.
“When you talk rap, Eminem’s a G.O.A.T. He’s an alien,” he said. “I look up to Eminem lyrically... I love them both. I think this is fun stuff [that’s] going on.”
Ultimately, the “All The Way Up” rapper wants to “let the people decide.”
50 Cent has already taken his place on Em’s side, calling Cannon’s track “trash.”
“I don’t understand to save my life why someone would pick a fight with EM,” the “Power” producer wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday (Dec. 10). “He is a different kinda animal, I haven’t seen a motherfu**er come close to beating him man. hey Nick that sh*t was trash, I oughta kick you in yo ass when I see you PUNK!”
New to the feud, Joyner Lucas has also staked out his loyalty.
“Aye [Nick Cannon] you better stop rap jumping my ni**a marshall before me, 50, Royce, crooked i, Lloyd banks, j Cole, Kendrick, logic, tech n9ne, big Sean, and king los get busy on yo ass.... pause,” he tweeted on Tuesday (Dec. 10). “Keep playin.”

So far, Cannon has released two diss tracks, “The Invitation” and “Pray For Him,” with Eminem sticking to his initial verse. Despite not releasing a full song, Twitter seems to have deemed Em the winner, with #RIPNickCannon trending for two days.
