‘When did Eminem become the Karen he used to rap about?’ Rapper hammered over cease and desist letter

Rapper Eminem sent a cease and desist letter to Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy demanding he not use his music on the campaign trail and was sandblasted for it by conservatives.

The demand follows Ramaswamy rapping to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” at the Iowa State Fair. The appearance went viral and evidently ticked the rapper off, resulting in his legal representation ordering the candidate to stop publicly rapping to his music.

Ramaswamy’s campaign lawyer received a letter from music publisher BMI that stated, “BMI has received a communication from Marshall B. Mathers, III, professionally known as Eminem, objecting to the Vivek Ramaswamy campaign’s use of Eminem’s musical compositions.”

“BMI will consider any performance of the Eminem Works by the Vivek 2024 campaign from this date forward to be a material breach of the Agreement for which BMI reserves all rights and remedies with respect thereto,” the letter asserted, according to Fox News.

Eminem is evidently a Democrat who endorsed President Biden in 2020 and definitely doesn’t care for Republicans. He was roundly mocked on X by conservatives for throwing a hissy fit over Ramaswamy’s use of his music on the campaign trail.

“Lmao what a gigantic baby,” author and political commentator Mike Cernovich proclaimed on X.

That was just the beginning of the thrashing he received.

A number of people took issue with Eminem’s perceived hypocrisy after pushing an anti-war message that echoed Ramaswamy.

“Right before the 2004 election, Eminem released an anti-Bush song called ‘Mosh,’” State Freedom Caucus Network Comms Director Greg Price wrote. “One of its lyrics was ‘No more blood for oil. We got our own battles to fight on our own soil.’ Now he’s angry that the most anti-war candidate in the GOP primary sang his song at an event.”

Ramaswamy wasted no time in responding to the over-indulged rapper.

“Will The REAL Slim Shady Please Stand Up?” Ramaswamy posted to X. “He didn’t just say what I think he did, did he?”

“Vivek just got on the stage and cut loose,” Ramaswamy’s campaign spokesperson Tricia McLaughlin told Fox News Digital in an interview. “To the American people’s chagrin, we will have to leave the rapping to the real slim shady.”

The rapper was dragged all over X:
