Slim Shady has shown his support for Drake in the past. Em, who collaborated with Drake on 2009’s “Forever,” has stated before that “Drake is always gonna be in my good graces because he did something for one of my daughter’s that I will never forget,” he said. “He will always be in my graces with that. And I like Drake.”

Eminem is one of the most popular rappers of all time. He has also seen his share of hate over the years he has been doing his craft.

On Side B of his album Music to Be Murdered By, the Detroit rappers offers some advice to Toronto hip hop star known worldwide as Drake. On “Zeus,” he begins with talking about fans of hip hop being fickle. He gives a warning to the beloved Toronto rapper that while he may be on top now, that could change.

“And, Drake, they’re gonna turn on you one day too / And the more you win, the sooner they do,” raps Em.

Eminem gives examples with Chance the Rapper, Future, and Migos. “They did it to Chance / Next they’ll be mentionin’ Future in the past tense / Or sayin’ adiós to Migos.”
