Eminem Takes Shots At Ray Rice, LeBron James, Tony Stewart In New Rap [VIDEO]

By: Evan Jankens

Growing up in Clinton Township, I was instantly hooked when Eminem debuted his album "The Slim Shady LP" in 1999.

I was in 10th grade, and his music stuck me with so much I got into the media for a chance to see the guy in person. I haven't been that lucky yet, but maybe one day.

So you'll understand when I say that when Eminem released a Chyper (a rap without the music) with Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf -- I had to check it out. Shot in the former Michigan Theater in downtown Detroit, the verse is amazing.

Instead of skewering family members or reality stars, he goes for sports stars in three of his verses.

First off, he takes a shot at the great LeBron James:

I need a towel, sweat leaks from my brow, it's burning my eyes, my cerebral is foul cuz ... I'm thinking about should be illegal. I need my headband like the guy who left Cleveland Ohio and went to South Beach with his talents, screamed f*** you on the way out and winked with a smile.

Pretty great, right? Unless you are a huge LeBron James fan.

Next Mr. Shady mentioned Ray and Janay Rice:

But I may fight for gay rights specially if they ..., its more of a knockout than Janay Rice, play nice ... I'll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice like Ray Rice in broad daylight, in plain sight of the elevator surveillance till the head is banged on the railing and then celebrate with the Ravens.

The final sports reference is about Tony Stewart.

Been known to lose it though, so if I overdo it, you drove me too it. When I step into the vocal booth like I'm supposed to do I'ma murder you on a ... track like Tony Stewart.
