Eminem fires ‘Warning’ shot at Mariah Carey
LOS ANGELES: The Eminem/Mariah Carey/Nick Cannon feud is heating up.
In a new song called “The Warning,” the rapper calls Mariah and her husband, “America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon, a slew of profanities and claims to have “pictures” of the singer.
“You probably think since it’s been so long, if I had something on you I woulda did it by now,” he raps on the leaked track, adding he has “enough dirt on you to murder you.”
Eminem also claims in the song to have slept with Carey “once” and criticizes her “alcoholic mind.”
Previously, Eminem ignited the feud by calling out Carey and Cannon in the song “Bagpipes from Baghdad” off his new album, “Relapse.” In the track, he suggested the couple should break up and said he wanted another shot at Carey.
Cannon responded with a blog post in May where he called Eminem “Slim Lamey,” and said he wanted to meet up with the rapper to “deal with this like adults.” Cannon also claimed Eminem never got to “second base” with his wife.
Carey herself seemed to respond with her video for single “Obsessed” in July, in which she dressed up in Eminem-style drag – which Eminem addresses in “The Warning,” but Carey’s camp denies was an impersonation of the rapper – and sang the chorus, “Why you so obsessed with me/lyin’ that you’re sexin’ me.”
Reps for Eminem, Carey and Cannon were not immediately available for comment, though Cannon offered a competitive statement on his Twitter on Friday.
”This ain’t checkers. This is chess!” he Tweeted.
