Eminem uses Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson as punch lines in new songs


Eminem has always been unafraid to say some crazy stuff in his rhymes. The rapper’s lyrics have always been controversial, at times going after his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian and several instances of imagery relating to domestic violence.

Monday Em dropped a 19-minute cypher that included Yelawolf, Slaughterhouse and of course himself. Em dropped a few lines in reference to recent NFL headlines involving Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson.

“But I may fight for gay rights, especially if they dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice/ Play nice? Bitch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance/ ’Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.”



In a track entitled “Detroit vs Everybody,” Em turns his attention to Adrian Peterson who recently plead No contest to child abuse charges in Texas.

“What’s makin’ you think I need a switch? I’m Adrian Peterson …
When he’s raging and heated and on the way to go beat his kid …
On the track I spank like he just did.”

I never have the urge to ride out to Em songs. I usually listen once for the lyrics and clever word play, and then I’m over it.
