Beef between 50 Cent and Ja Rule has been brewing for a good
few years now. Some of you may have heard about the physical squabbles, one involving 50 punching Ja and another with Ja's
crew stabbing 50 and a friend of his. Ever since 50 Cent has served Ja Rule on wax, with such songs as "Your Life is on the
Line" where 50 immitates Ja's yelling of "Murdaaaa" in the hook and "Get Out the Club" which specificly mentions the incident
at the club..."You come 15 niggas, 10 knives, and I leave with 4 stitches, that ain't assault, that's an insult".
that 50 signed with Shady/Aftermath Records, Ja Rule and Irv Gotti seem to have a problem with Dr. Dre and Eminem for signing
an artist that they have beef with. On Tuesday, November 19, both Ja Rule and Irv Gotti were special guests on Star and Bucwild's
morning show on Hot 97 NYC. Irv Gotti had some 'legal documents' stating the order of protection 50 'has on him'. Ja Rule
yelled out "gay gay gay gay u - nit" mimicing the way 50 did "g-g-g-g-u-nit" in the beginning of the "Till I Collapse" freestyle
(On the 8 Mile soundtracks bonus disk titled "Aftermath Sampler").
Ja Rule has since threatened Eminem and Dre, that
if they allow 50 Cent to release a diss track towards him or Muder Inc. that Ja would take action against Eminem and Dre.
This beef started when Eminem was reportedly angry that Benzino
had given Em only 2 Mics in his magazine "The Source", and Benzino gave his own group four and a half mics and also put himself
on the front cover of his own magazine. Benzino called Eminem a "culture stealer". Eminem retaliated to this by
releasing a diss track on The Shady Records mixtape, called "Nail in the Coffin" on which he ripped Benzino apart with his
lyrical attack. Benzino replied by saying that he would kill Em's daughter and since then Em hasn't replied, although
rumour has it that he, 50 Cent and Angie Martinez and bringing out another diss track. In an interview with Angie Martinez,
Benzino accused Eminem of wanting to be a racist and also said that he was ruining the HipHop culture.
This beef is mainly between Dr Dre and Jermaine Dupri, but
Eminem has stuck up for Dre, and along with Xzibit, joined the beef against J.D. It all started when J.D claimed that
he was the best producer in the game, claiming he was better than Dre and Timbaland during an interview with XXL magazine.
Dre retaliated in the B-Side of Eminems Without Me single, "Say What You Say" saying: "Been here longer than anyone in
the game And I ain't got to lie about my age (But what about Jermaine?) Fuck Jermaine! He don't belong speakin mine or Timbaland's
name And don't think, I don't read your lil' interviews, and see what you're sayin I'm a giant, and I ain't gotta move 'til
I'm provoked When I see you I'ma step on you and not even know it You midget, Mini-Me with a bunch of little Mini-Yous runnin
around your backyard swimmin pools Over 80 million records sold And I ain't have to do it with ten or eleven-year-olds."
according to Y2HipHop.com, Eminem and Xzibit dropped a freestyle going at the SoSo producer/rapper which will apparently appear
on the next DJ KaySlay mixtape titled "Say What You Say".
This is a strange beef to address because it's more of a one-sided
beef. Eminem has never dissed Canibus and he's only mentioned his name in the odd freestyle or one-liner. Apparently, this
was enough to prompt Canibus to record the song "U Didn't Care," a sequel to the classic Eminem track "Stan". In the skit
before the song, Canibus witnesses Stan driving off the bridge and he pulls over and helps him. In "U Didn't Care", Canibus
takes the role of Stan and writes to Eminem. Stan is a recurring character throughout Canibus' latest album "C True Hollywood
Stories" and Eminem is even pictured in the album's ad. At the moment, it is not known whether or not Eminem will respond
to Canibus' diss track towards him. The other mystery is what triggered Canibus' obsession with Eminem. This is most likely
a publicity stunt, similar to the beef Esham has with D-12.
ROYCE DA 5'9''
This is a more serious and also a recent beef. As both currently
have not dropped a verse actually against each other this isn't really seen as a beef as of yet. This all started on the Anger
Management Tour, where Royce had been writing lines for Eminem and other D12 members, including Proof. As they read the lines
one of D12 thought Royce was subliminally dissing the tour, therefore he's dissing them. Eminem was convinced by this and
didn't use the lines. Also Eminem didn't call Royce to see if this was true. Instead he just stayed mad at Royce. In a recent
interview with HipHopSite.com Royce explains that he wasn't dissing the tour or Eminem, but Eminem was certain he was. This
was not a bother to Royce as it was a simple misunderstanding. What bothered Royce was the fact that Eminem didn't call to
see if this was true. Royce explained that, that's not how he treats his friends and for that, if Eminem does choose to dislike
Royce now, it doesn't bother him at all.
Also in the same interview Royce tells us that he once tried to get onto Shady
Records. Only when he called Eminem told Royce he was to busy at the time, with The Eminem Show almost done, the 8 Mile film
and also working with D12 and Obie Trice. This was understandable and Royce excepted it. 1 week later Eminem signs 50 Cent.
the moment neither is yet to drop a line against each other but it has been said in an interview that Royce has wrote a diss
verse towards Eminem and it may appear on Royce's next album 'Dead or Alive', but is not confirmed if it will be on the album.
The feud started at last year's Grammy's, when Moby called
Eminem ''a misogynist, a homophobe, a racist, and an anti-Semite.'' Eminem responded with a few lines in his recent hit ''Without
Me,'' addressing him with the words ''you 36-year-old bald-headed fag, blow me.'' Moby says he didn't take that personally
either, writing, ''I think that Eminem is talented and interesting, but I'm kind of stunned at the anger that he has for me
seeing as I'd never met him up until [the VMAs].''
If Moby was worried for anyone's safety, it was that of Triumph
the Insult Comic Dog, who was talking to Moby just before Eminem went to the podium, brushing aside the hand puppet (and puppeteer
Robert Smigel), who tried to address the rapper on his way to the stage. Writes Moby, ''I was more concerned for Triumph's
well-being. If Eminem wants to pick on someone, fine, pick on me, but don't diss the dog-puppet. Triumph the dog-puppet is
my hero. That's the sole reason that I went to the VMAs. 'Cos I love that little dog-puppet.''
Actually, Triumph was fine,
too. In a statement on his website, the ''Late Night With Conan O'Brien'' regular says he was unharmed, and adds, ''I only
wish Eminem could relax and enjoy all he has: his unique talent, and his smooth white hair, which brings to mind a beagle's
nutsack. He should lighten up... I mean, my mom was a bitch too, but I don't go writing songs about it.''
The Eminem and Everlast feud has expanded to include Eminem's
one-time friends Fred Durst and DJ Lethal of Limp Bizkit. Eminem has some choice and predictably profane words for the pair
on "Girls," a track from the group D-12's album Devil's Night. Eminem is apparently upset about a comment Lethal made in December
during the Limp guys' visit to "TRL." Lethal, who was in House of Pain with Everlast but was also friends with Eminem, at
first said of their beef, "They're both men, they'll work it out." But he added that if the two were to take their differences
outside the realm of their respective records, "Everlast would definitely win, you know what I mean?". Em has retaliated with
"Girls," his third volley in his war of the words with Everlast. Lethal was supposed to guest on "Quitter," one of Eminem
and D-12's Everlast-dissing songs, which calls on fans to physically attack the former House of Pain MC. Lethal bowed out,
inspiring Em to call him and Durst "cowards" and "sissies" on "Girls," and ridicule their hit "Rollin'". Later in the song,
Eminem claims he left Durst hanging on purpose when the red-capped singer tried to give him a high five at the MTV Video Music
Awards in September, though Em claimed his reason for dissing Durst and Lethal is for comments Lethal made two months later.
Eminem also allied himself with Limp Bizkit when he attacked Everlast on the D-12 B-side, "Shit on You," which was released
in October, and "Quitter," released in December.
INSANE CLOWN POSSE
This beef with Eminem and the Insane Clown Posse (ICP), goes
way back to 1995. ICP consists of two people, Violent J (Joseph Bruce), and Shaggy 2 Dope (Joseph Ulster). Everything started
in 1995, when Eminem was handing out flyers for a party he was playing at. The flyer apparently said "Appearance from ICP...maybe".
Unfortunately, Violent J wasn't too happy about this and he told Eminem to "fuck off" and that he wouldn't play at his party.
this bull shit apparently hurt Eminem's pride, and so he started to diss ICP. He told people that he threw ICP out of a club
in Detroit and he told a close friend that ICP were pussies for not responding. The club incident is true though, Eminem and
D-12 chased ICP out of a club and then shot ICP's van with a paintball gun. This is briefly mentioned in "Nothing But A Bitch
Thang" when ICP denies it: "you ain't never chased us out of no club bitch... only club you ever chased anybody out of was
a gay bar bitch."
Eminem has dissed ICP on many tracks before. For example, on "Get U Mad", he says "dress up like
ICP and have them come see you perform live" and on "Drastic Measures" he says, "ICP are over rated and hated because of their
Within the past few years, ICP has recruited Detroit rap group Twiztid to the fold and this Detroit
crew released their first diss towards Slim with the infamous "Slim Anus"
This battle is definitely far from over.
ICP's latest diss towards Slim Shady is entitled "Nuthin but a Bitch Thang" and I'm sure you can find it on Kazaa or Morhpeous.
