Eminem recently surprised fans when he dropped Music To Murder By Side B this month (December). Despite being an elder in the rap game, Slim Shady continues to grab the attention of fans across generations.
There are some new generation artists who don’t vibe with the Detroit rap icon such as Lil’ Pump who said the following statement on an Instagram post about being an old rapper.
“F**k Eminem. You is lame as hell, ain’t nobody listening to your old ass,” Pump said in a video posted to his Instagram story. “You lame as f**k, b***h! I woke up on bulls**t today, I’m back on my f**k s**t.”
The Eminem Stan crew came out in defense of the hip hop artist to illustrate how huge of a following Eminem still has despite not being the new kid on the block.
