Twitter wasn’t quite sure what to make of Eminem’s verse on Boogie’s “Rainy Days” cut. Taken from the Shady Records signee’s debut album, Everything’s For Sale, the track contains a questionable line from Em that has something to do with sheep and sexual intercourse.
“I left my legacy hurt? Fuckin’ absurd/Like a shepherd havin’ sex with his sheep, fuck what you heard/All this talk in my ear, I got a idea/Like the clerk when you tryna buy beer (ID ya),” he spits.
Fans flooded the social media platform to argue about Shady’s contribution. Some thought the entire verse was brilliant, while others believed it simply destroyed the song. There were also a few people just wondering what the hell that sheep line was all about.
Of course, Em has fired back at his detractors before. His pent up anger was essentially the crux of Kamikaze, so it won’t be surprising if Shady has something to say to those criticizing his work on this track.
Check out some of the reactions below.
God…Eminem's verse is 😤 some lyrics 🔥🔥
"I promise not to cry crocodile tears
If you end up shocked at my lyrics
Marshall is dead in the water but not that I care
Dre said, "Rock the boat" and the Doc is my pier" pic.twitter.com/plRuz2ahy3

Please be advised that Eminem shows up on the Boogie album and says "like a shepherd having sex with his sheep, fuck what you heard"

I need someone to remove Eminem off this Boogie album. The entire album was sounding so mellow and calming and here comes Eminem dropping punchlines about sheep sex. The album is real smooth minus Eminem's verse.

Second time listening to Rainy Days. I'm still not feeling Eminem's verse. It kind of ruined the song for me. I wanted a longer verse from Boogie too.

Why people hating on @Eminem's verse on @WS_Boogie's "Rainy Days"? The whole track was dope and both had top notch bars and the wordplay didn't disappoint as usual 🔥Ya'll must've got to used to that non humble mumble shit. Come back to the good side, ya'll 😇 #fuckwhatyouheard

So when Eminem said "Marshall is Dead in the water" in "Rainy Days" he's actually referring to Bad Guy 3rd verse where Matthew Mitchell drowned him in river pic.twitter.com/PQBSDpZrcW

Man, Eminem’s verse on Boogie’s Rainy Days was flowing so good and was dope and then…he decided to use his choppy flow. It sounded terrible. Ruined the second half of his verse. What you doing, Em? Lol
