Eminem’s catalog is littered with controversial lyrics — that’s essentially what makes Slim Shady who he is. But in 2019, certain things simply don’t seem to fly anymore.
Case in point, a leaked snippet of a song Em wrote 10 years ago referencing Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna ruffled a few feathers last week. Now, the full version of the track has started making the rounds online.
“Let me add my two cents,” he raps. “Of course I side with Chris Brown/I’d beat a bitch down, too/If she gave my dick an itch, now.” Earlier in the track, he also asks, “I’m not playing Rihanna where’d you get the V.D. at?”
The track was reportedly crafted during Em’s 2009 Relapse sessions, while an alternate version of it appeared on B.o.B.’s “Things Get Worse” in 2011.
This one follows another recent Shady leak. Earlier this month, a collaboration between Em and Joyner Lucas hit the internet called “What If I Was Gay“.

An unreleased snippet of Eminem rapping about his support of Chris Brown popped up on Reddit over the weekend. Titled “(SNIPPET) Eminem – Things Get Worse (Rihanna Diss),” the brief clip finds Em rapping, “Of course I side with Chris Brown/I’d beat a bitch down too.”
This, of course, is in reference to Brown’s 2009 assault on his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
The snippet is allegedly a scrapped verse from Slim Shady’s 2009 Relapse sessions. Clearly, the verse in question didn’t make the album, but an alternate version of it appeared on B.o.B.’s 2011 track “Things Get Worse,” although neither RiRi or Brown are mentioned in the verse. Em, however, does name drop other celebrity women, including Jessica Simpson, Angelina Jolie and Dakota Fanning.
Eminem and the Barbadian superstar have collaborated numerous times on songs such as 2010’s “Love The Way You Lie,” 2012’s “Numb” and 2013’s “The Monster.”
