Nick Cannon fires back at Eminem on his latest single, "The Invitation," featuring Hitman Holla, Charlie Clips, Prince Eazy, and Suge Knight. You can check out the video up top, which includes the rappers in a studio presumably recording the song aimed at the Detroit legend.
The song is bracketed by sections of a jail phone call with Suge Knight. In the first portion of the recording, Suge calls Cannon "family" before introducing the name of the song.
"Check this out Eminem, whatever your name is," Suge says. "I don't ever do no talking, but Nick is family. This your invitation to prove to everybody what you really about. Winner takes all."
Cannon then sets the tone for this posse track with a verse that takes direct aim at Eminem. Nick references Em's previous drug abuse as well as the rapper's family. "I told Joe to lean back, don't get hit with this retaliation," Nick said. "I fuck with Crack, but the white boy, he fuck with crack/Pills and smack/Shady about to relapse/Call Kim, somebody get Hailie/And that other kid you raising that ain't even your baby."
When HotNewHipHop highlighted the line, "I heard your chauffeur got a video of you sucking a cock/You paid him off then laid him off, now who really the opps," Cannon retweeted it and said, "FACTS! His lawyers didn’t want that one out! They already on my line."
Cannon is followed by Ncredible Entertainment artists and Wild 'N Out cast members Hitman Holla, Charlie Clips, and Prince Eazy. The song ends with the rest of Nick's conversation with Suge. This clip adds context to the song's title. Throughout this fiasco, Cannon has been urging Eminem to come on Wild 'N Out and to settle their differences in a friendly manner. Now Suge wants Em to step into a boxing ring with Cannon.
"At the end of the day, you have every person in the industry and every person in the streets. Shit, where is he going to go? He just the new Vanilla Ice. It's just a matter of time, he hanging, right?" Suge said. "Eminem a bitch for bringing up bullshit that's not true... All we got to do is get that motherfucker in the ring with you and you gonna beat the dog shit out him. That motherfucking simple."
Eminem used his feature on Fat Joe's latest album, Family Ties, to reignite his beef with Nick Cannon. "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," Eminem rapped on "Lord Above." "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."
This was in response to Cannon alleging on an episode of T.I.'s ExpediTIously podcast that he went to Detroit to look for Em at the height of their beef. "I called managers... I gotta show my wife I'm a man," Cannon recalled to Tip. "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."
