6ix9ine trolls Eminem by rapping over ‘Lose Yourself’

It is on.

6ix9ine is among the latest artists to hit back at Eminem, this time by rapping over ‘Lose Yourself’. Check out footage below.

Eminem surprised the world with the unannounced release of ‘Kamikaze‘, loaded with controversial moments and taking aim at many others with a number of ‘diss tracks‘. However, 6ix9ine wasn’t among his targets – but that hasn’t stopped him from taking a pop.

Taking to Instagram, 6ix9ine rapped over the beat and backing track to ‘Lose Yourself’: “You thought right when you ain’t diss me/I’m a lyrical legend, I know they miss me/All you mumble rap kids, colourful hair/Can’t compare to the lyrical phenomenon that’s right here.”

He then attempted to imitate Eminem’s flow and lyrical style, before he broke character and the clip ended. He added: “Mars, Jupiter, Venus, origins and oranges combine solar eclipse, your mind is an eclipse of the origins in.

The clip has since been deleted from Instagram but captured on Youtube:

Eminem did however, take a pop at ‘mumble rap’ and certain artists on the track ‘The Ringer: “Lil Pump, Lil Xan imitate Lil Wayne/I should aim at everybody in the game, pick a name/I’m fed up with being humble/And rumour is I’m hungry/I’m sure you heard bumblings/I heard you wanna rumble like an empty stomach/I heard your mumbling but it’s jumbled in mumbo-jumbo”.

Meanwhile, Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds protested against Eminem’s use of homophobic language on ‘Kamikaze‘, as did Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon for being sampled on the track ‘Fall‘.
