Eminem Goes At Benzino’s Neck On A New Diss Record

During 2023, Eminem’s primary target was a short-lived but high-profile exchange of diss records between legends — when he went at Grandmaster Melle Mel, and garnered a response. In 2024, it appears that for Em, it is back to business as usual: dissing Benzino in a feud that has lasted for over 20 years.

In a new song, “Doomsday, Pt. 2,” Eminem uses less than two minutes to obliterate his foe with words. The track appears on Lyrical Lemonade’s just-released All Is Yellow compilation, and is currently featured atop the Ambrosia For Heads playlist (subscribe here for the best in new Hip-Hop).

Eminem Sends A Message To Melle Mel With A Furious Diss

“Doomsday, Pt. 2,” which features an Em co-production credit, is a beat homage to “Role Model” from The Slim Shady LP 25 years ago. The first installment featured Juice WRLD and Cordae, and is found on All Is Yellow. Instead of a remix add-on, Marshall Mathers stands alone and delivers harsh words for his enemy—long after Benzino’s active Rap career and a stake in The Source magazine.

Eminem literally goes at Benzino’s neck with a jab about body parts. “First I’ma shred a verse like I had a personal vendetta / Words come together like birds of a feather / ‘Til I need a walker like Herschel, I’m better / Than all of you f__kin’ little twerps put together / But I’m not try’na be controversial, I’d rather / Talk about s__t with the purpose that matters / Like who had the second best verse on ‘Forever’? / Now I got a riddle, one condition, you mustn’t laugh / What is the opposite of Benzino? A giraffe / ‘Go at his neck,’ how the f__k is that? / How can I go at somethin’ he doesn’t have? / Arm so short he can’t even touch his hands / When they’re above his head doin’ jumpin’ jacks.

He does not stop there. Eminem calls out his foe’s financial status, and then his relationship with oft-estranged daughter, Coi Leray. “Sorry, I don’t mean to upset you, Ben’ / When I talk about all the debt you in / I hear that you been creepin’ on the low / In them cheap hotels, that they catch you in / Jesus Christ, dawg, when you said 210 / Never guessed you meant at the Red Roof Inn / In a room with one single bed, two men / Shady, man, you can’t—, yes, you can / Well, I guess then I regret to inform you, hate to spoil the day / But this doesn’t bring me no joy to say /Guess that Coi Leray feat’s in the toilet, ayy? / Damage due to flows, collateral, I s’pose / Gat-pointed like mine and Sandra Bullock’s nose.” Em appears to accuse Benzino of relying on his hit-making daughter for Rap relevance in 2024. After alluding to shooting his opponent, the mogul raps, “Right toward the asylum or the psych ward / Because I strangled you with a mic cord.

Notably, as Eminem closes out the song, he shouts out a fellow MC/producer who is part of the Interscope Records family: “And I been at the level J. Cole been at / It’s Aftermath that I ride for ’til I die.
