Jack Harlow Almost Murdered Eminem On His Own Killer Remix

Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let Ambrosia For Heads fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlists with recent music—songs that have been released within the several months.

Today (May 28), the biggest news in the music space is the arrival of DMX’s Exodus album. Overseen by Swizz Beatz, X’s return to Def Jam Records was recorded over the two years before his passing and features JAY-Z, Nas, Griselda, The LOX, and Snoop Dogg. AFH has previously shared highlights from that album and included them on the playlist. However, today also marks an unexpected drop from Eminem. Nearly a year and a half after releasing Music To Be Murdered By, Em has taken an album cut, “Killer,” and returned with a remix featuring two of the most talented emerging MCs in Hip-Hop. Harlow and Cordae, both 23, have each released respected albums in the space; Cordae’s The Lost Boy was named among AFH‘s Best of 2019. Both artists have already earned plaques in their young careers and continue to show an appreciation and respect for what’s come before them (Cordae showed his knowledge of Jay and Nas songsHarlow’s 2020 Statik Selektah collaboration honors Mac Miller).

While Em has previously worked with stars of the star generation, he gets a competitive run for his money on the “Killer” remix. Harlow raps first with bars including, “I used to rock a toboggan, headphones around my neck, tryna be like Shady / Now the phone that’s in my pocket seem to keep vibratin’ / I got all these Ronnie Bennetts try’na ‘Be My Baby’ / Try’na fiancé me, I take the steering wheel and drive them girls beyond crazy / I’m on a song with my idol / I’m a cold-blooded version of the song title / I put these diamonds in the ring like they was Shawn Michaels / I can’t put the Louis V inside the wash cycle / I take this sh*t to the cleaners / ‘Bout to cop me a Bimmer, I got a special demeanor.” While crediting Em as his idol, Harlow is not shy about trying to steal the show. After a verse from Cordae, Eminem brings the punchlines. “My sentences are harsh, every single’s bar’s like a verdict / I say it with conviction, but this time you’re not gonna serve it / But as soon as I read it, you know that you’re about to get murdered / When I cap, it’ll punish, then put you in a box like a juror / If there’s a rapper I haven’t ate, we ain’t battled, either that or they won’t collaborate / ‘Cause pad or paper freestyle will settle that debate / I call it guillotine-style ’cause even off the head, I decapitate / Yeah, b*tch, I go harder than Carter III / But I think your thottie just thought of me / She got a body and bottom like Cardi B / And she be stalking me like I was broccoli / I’m getting brain now like a lobotomy / You probably thinkin’ you had that sh*t in the bag like it’s colostomy.” A few more bars into his first release of 2021, Marshall Mathers lets fans know that there’s no beef between him and Snoop Dogg. “Just called Snoop and I talked to him, we all cool / Dre, me and the Dogg good, Doc, we got you,” putting to rest a headline from earlier this year (with a video embedded below).

Just as Eminem used moments in his career to show that he could rap at top levels alongside JAY-Z, Kool G Rap and KRS-One, Redman, and others, Jack Harlow more than stands his ground against one of Hip-Hop’s greatest.
