On "Lord Above," Eminem makes reference to his past issues with the former couple and comments made by Cannon during his September 2019 interview with T.I. on the ExpediTIously podcast. While on the podcast, Cannon said that "he went looking" for Eminem after the Detroit rapper dissed Carey. "I called managers...I gotta show my wife I'm a man," Cannon said at the time. "I said, 'I know I'm not gonna be able to out rap you but I will whoop your ass.' Those were the exact words at the time. Cooler heads prevailed."
"Almost got my caboose kicked, fool, quit, you not gon' do shit," Eminem rapped on "Lord Above." Elsewhere in the verse, Eminem called Cannon "whipped" and said Carey is a "nut job."
Check out the lyrics in question below.
Word to the Terror Squad, Joe, this is all puns aside though
I know me and Mariah didn't end on a high note
But that other dude's whipped, that pussy got him neutered
Tried to tell him this chick's a nut job before he got his jewels clipped
Almost got my caboose kicked, fool, quit, you not gon' do shit
I let her chop my balls off, too 'fore I lost to you, Nick
Fat Joe previously talked about the track during his promo run for the album. It's "the most disrespectful song; Eminem has not rhymed like this in years," he said.
