Rap legend Eminem (real name: Marshall Mathers) called out people who refuse to wear face masks in a new track he recently dropped with Kid Cudi (real name: Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi).
In “The Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady”, the renowned lyricist used bars to weigh in on the wearing of face mask, which is highly being debated in the United States amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“F*ck’s going on man?/Bunch of half-wits up in office/Half of us walkin’ around like a zombie apocalypse/Other half are just pissed off/And don’t wanna wear a mask/And they’re just scoffin’,” Eminem raps, also calling out the Trump administration.
“And that’s how you end up catchin’ the sh*t off ’em/I just used the same basket as you shoppin’/Now I’m in a f*ckin’ casket from you coffin’,” the rapper adds.

Kid Cudi released the lyric video for the new song on his official YouTube channel and various other platforms on July 9.
The anti-face mask sentiment is not the only controversy the rapper addressed, however, as Eminem also lamented why “many cops are dirty” and offered his prayers to Black victims of police brutality, paying homage to George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.
“And it’s non-stop fury/‘Cause I ain’t holdin’ them up like unarmed robbery/And God’s my jury, so when I die/I’m not worried/Prayers to George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery/How the f*ck is it that so many cops are dirty?” Eminem raps.
“Stop man, please/Officer, I’m sorry/But I can’t breathe/When I got you on top of me/Your god d*mn knee’s on my carotid artery,” he adds.Artikel Asli
