On the album’s track ‘Alfred’s Theme’, Eminem raps: “But really I’m just fulfilling my wish of killing rhymes / Which is really childish and silly, but I’m really like this / I’m giving nightmares to Billie Eilish.”
The lyrics refer to a 2019 interview given by Eilish, in which she said she has been “terrified” of the rapper for her whole life.
When asked to choose her favourite rapper between Eminem and Childish Gambino by Noisey, she admitted: ”I have to say Childish Gambino, one billion per cent.
“I was scared of Eminem my whole life,” she added. “Terrified. That dude freaked the fuck out of me. Oh my god.
“But you know, Childish Gambino created me, dude. I don’t even know, that’s crazy, that’s a god – you can’t even put him in a list of other people.”
