• Eminem is back on the charts
  • His new album looks to show a rough side of him
  • THIS is his new single

With the release of his latest album, 'The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grace),' the rap maestro not only takes a trip down memory lane but also stirs the pot with bold lyrics and a star-studded music video. This is Eminem's audacious project, including a controversial single that's got everyone talking!

The Controversial Single: "Houdini" Unleashed!

Eminem, the rap titan known for his sharp wit and controversial lyrics, is at it again! This time, he's shaking the foundations of the hip-hop world by announcing the demise of his infamous alter ego, Slim Shady, in his latest album, 'The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grace).'

Fans are reeling, and the internet is buzzing - Slim Shady is back, back again, but apparently, not for long.

Eminem dropped the album's first bombshell, "Houdini," sampling the classic Steve Miller Band hit "Abracadabra."

But it's not just the catchy tune that's got tongues wagging. Eminem's lyrics take no prisoners, targeting everyone from Megan Thee Stallion to, surprisingly, himself!

"If I was to ask for Megan Thee Stallion if she would collab with me, would I really have a shot at a feat?" he raps, referencing the 2020 incident involving Tory Lanez with a boldness only Eminem could muster.

Layered insults

The song, in true Eminem fashion, aims to have controversial lyrics, as he raps about not just Megan but trans people and more.

In the lyrics, he taunts his audience — and his longtime manager Paul Rosenberg, who leaves a fake voicemail at the beginning of the track — to "cancel me," before delving into several controversial lines including: "Snake ass prick, you male cross dresser, fake ass b---- / And I’ll probably get s--- for that."

He even (jokingly) takes aim at his three kids: "F--- my own kids, they're brats / They can screw off, them and you all / You too, Paul, got two balls, big as RuPaul's."

The music video for "Houdini" is a spectacle of cameos and time-traveling antics. Opening with a less-than-enthusiastic voicemail from Eminem's music manager, Paul Rosenberg, the video quickly escalates as Dr. Dre announces, "We've got a problem." The problem?

A portal to 2002, bringing together 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, and Pete Davidson in a nostalgic and hilarious romp. Eminem battling his younger self is the cherry on top, reminiscent of his 2002 hit video "Without Me."

Adding to the intrigue, a faux obituary for Slim Shady appeared in the Detroit Free Press, calling the alter ego "a rogue splinter in the flourishing underground rap scene." With "The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce)" following his 2020 album, "Music to Be Murdered By," it's clear Eminem is closing a chapter on one of hip-hop's most iconic personas.
