Toward the end of the track, Eminem takes shots at Joe Budden and Diddy’s REVOLT TV with, “Yeah, shout to Puffy Combs, but fuck REVOLT/“Y’all are like a fucked up remote/Now I get it why our button’s broke, cause you pressing the heat but do nothing though, especially when it comes to punch this throne. Wasted tissue, tell this journalist stick to the stuff he know, like always running, from Migos.”
On Monday (June 22), REVOLT replied to Em’s verse via Twitter with a simple “Fuck you too @Eminem.”
It didn’t take long for REVOLT to share the same sentiment on Instagram, this time in bold letters.
“FUCK YOU TOO EMINEM – REVOLT,” they wrote in all caps.
Conway originally dropped “Bang” last July, which found Em dissing everyone from Iggy Azalea and Canibus to Ja Rule. Around this time, Shady was still seething over the lukewarm reception his 2017 effort Revival received from mainstream media, Budden included.
Em proved he still wasn’t over it when he took aim at Budden yet again on 2019’s Music To Be Murdered By, referring to him as “Trader Joe.” Budden addressed it on an episode of The Joe Budden Podcast shortly after its release.
“Trader Joe, Trader Joe, Trader Joe — that’s hurtful,” Budden said. “That’s not right! That’s offensive, man. Trader Joe? I’m Joe. You’re telling me Joe is a traitor? The same way I feel like [Eminem] should stop dissing Lord Jamar, he should stop dissing me. Hey, whatever we had—that exchange when you did all the [multi-day interview segments with Sway Calloway], and whenever I said whatever I said on the pod’, it a moment in time. We had our exchange. It’s over.”
This isn’t the first time Em has set his sights on a media outlet. On the 2000 track “Marshall Mathers,” he blasted XXL for a negative review of The Slim Shady EP.
“And then to top it off I walked to the news stand,” he raps. “To buy this cheap-ass little magazine with a food stamp/Skipped to the last page, flipped right fast/And what do I see? A picture of my big white ass/OK, let me give you motherfuckers some help/Uh, here, ‘XXL! XXL!’/Now your magazine shouldn’t have so much trouble to sell/Aw, fuck it, I’ll even buy a couple myself.”
