Eminem didn't just have smoke for other rappers on his angry new album Kamikaze. He had plenty of harsh words for the press, particularly Charlamagne the God, who got it twice.
First on "The Ringer":
Charlamagne gonna hate anyway
Doesn't matter what I say
Give me Donkey of the Day
What a way for 2018 to get underway
Then on "The Fall"
One last time for Charlemagne
If my response is late, it's just how long it takes
To hit my fuckin' radar, I'm so far away
These rappers are like Hunger Games
CTG addressed Eminem's bars in an interview with Esquire:
"I am just happy that I have gotten to the level where rappers who can actually rap say my name in records, regardless if it's a diss or not. Early in my career, I was only being dissed by Chingy. Now I'm being dissed by Eminem. Life is great."
Poor Chingy, he was probably somewhere just trying to enjoy the start to a holiday weekend.
In the Esquire interview, CTG added that he likes Kamikaze.
I actually do think Kamikaze is good. Revival was trash. That's why I don't understand why people think it's hate when someone critiques your work. In fact, Eminem probably knows deep down Revival wasn't good, and that's why he put out the Kamikaze album to let people know he still got it
And that he likes Eminem, too -- with a condition:
"My thoughts on Eminem have always been that he is one of the greatest lyricists ever. I've never been a fan because I can't relate to a lot of his world views and experiences, but I acknowledge that he's one of the greatest MC's. But if he was black, he would be Redman. In 2018, he's a living legend, a rap God, an icon that will never change. His position as all those things is solidified."
