WOMEN AND CHILDREN
Best Line: "What you know about being bullied over half your life/Oh that's right/You should know what that's like/You're half white."
No stranger to beef with Hip-Hop magazines, the feud between Eminem and former Source Magazine co-owner, Raymond "Benzino" Scott, began when Benzino publicly attacked Eminem's whiteness, claiming he had an unfair advantage over rappers of color and was bad for the culture. After threats of an Eminem boycott from The Source, and a slew of diss songs from Benzino, Em unleashed the ether-filled "The Sauce" and "Nail In the Coffin" on a Shady mixtape.
Equally venomous, both tracks picked apart Benzino's failed rap career, age, and the exploiting of Zino's son for his own financial gain. The Source Magazine and Benzino would never be the same, despite spending many years and dollars attempting to kill Marshall's career.
