Um...Eminem Raps About Punching Lana Del Rey In The Face 'Like Ray Rice'
Eminem dropped a new freestyle video on Vevo where he raps that he'll punch Lana Del Rey "in the face twice, like Ray Rice."
Yes, the rapper is talking about the Baltimore Ravens running back who was suspended after he was caught on a surveillance camera in an elevator punching his then-fiancée and now-wife Janay Rice earlier this year.
Eminem's promoting his upcoming Shady Records compilation Shady XV with this track, which has these disturbing lyrics:
But I may fight for gay rights, especially if the dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice / Play nice? Bitch I'll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance / ’Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.
Here's the video:
E! Online reported that Azaelia Banks came to the defense of Lana Del Rey, who has stayed mum on the situation. Banks' now-deleted tweet said, "But does Eminem know that I will personally punch him in his mouth?!" However, she left up one particular message she tweeted to Del Rey that read, "tell him to go back to his trailer park and eat his microwave hotpocket dinner and suck on his sisters tiddies."
In a 2012 interview with PopCrush, Del Rey gushed about how much she loved Eminem's music (though we're sure her feelings for him might be different now). “It changed my life. I found out music could be intelligent. He wasn’t just rhyming for rhyme’s sake.”
“Eminem is the master of lyrics whereas Frank Sinatra is the master of vocals… I f—-ing love Eminem."
