Hot New Hip Hop caught a fiery social media debate today, with fans arguing over whether it was finally time for the public to cancel Eminem for his old lyrics. Fans of the hip-hop performer know that Marshall Mathers has long been a lightning rod to controversy, including allegations that he perpetuated hatred, homophobia, xenophobia, racism, and more.
Now defend millennials Eminem on TikTok by putative Generation Z’ern who are dissatisfied with some of his previous lyrics, including lines about how he wanted to bury his mother and more. Others have argued that in the past, it is time to just leave Eminem and stop giving air to its flames.

According to Hot New Hip Hop, fans have problems with his line in Rihanna’s song “Love The Way You Lie”. The line says that if she ever tried to leave the house he would “put her to bed and set this house on fire”.

It’s not clear how TikTok users’ texts came under attack, especially considering they are so old now. Hot New Hip Hop reported that it first came out about 11 years ago and it probably isn’t even Eminem’s worst line in their perennial catalog.

According to Outlet, millennials have so far only laughed at TikTokers who, in their view, fail to understand that Eminem is virtually indefinite at this point in his career. His entire career has been controversial and socialmediagossips have tried to cancel him forever.
As most socialmediagossips know, things haven’t always been smooth for Eminem over the past few years. For example, when he was released revival, the album that was widely hated by many socialmediagossips in the hip-hop scene and also in the mainstream media, the rapper has been attacked by seemingly everyone.
After that, Eminem released the surprise record, Kamikaze, that came out less than a year later. Fans reacted much more positively to it, but he was still being blown up by mainstream outlets and critics who accused the rapper of not growing up as a young man and breaking away from his angry past.
