Lil Pump calls Eminem 'lame as f**k', Internet slams mumble rapper and says 'stay in your lane'
It would make sense for the two artists to beef... both rappers definitely stand on the opposite ends of the American political spectrum
Mumble rap artist Lil Pump is dissing rap legend Eminem. On Thursday, December 24, Lil Pump shared his views on Eminem on his Instagram Story. "Aye, f*** Eminem," Pump said in the clip. "You is lame as hell. Ain't nobody listening to your old a**. You lame as f***, b****." While it's unclear what prompted Pump to attack Eminem — that too with so many expletives — it would make sense for the two artists to beef. Both rappers definitely stand on the opposite ends of the American political spectrum.
In 2017, Eminem vociferously attacked Trump at the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards. He famously freestyled, “If you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this: F*** you!” Dropping bars in a dark parking lot, Eminem attacked Trump on his tweets, his support of white supremacists and global policies (with respect to North Korea), while referring to the US president as “a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust”.
Later Eminem was questioned by the Secret Service about “threatening lyrics” from his rap ‘Framed’ that appeared on the album ‘Revival’. The Secret Service reportedly characterized Eminem as “exhibiting inappropriate behavior” and noted that he, via the rap, “threatens protectee.” Buzzfeed News reported that the Secret Service investigative documents, which were heavily redacted, noted, “This is not the first time MATHERS made threatening comments towards POTUS and his family. In June 2017, MATHERS freestyled comments that were threatening in nature towards POTUS.”
Lil Pump on the other hand is a Donald Trump supporter. He joined Trump onstage at a campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on November 2, where Trump famously mispronounced his name. "And speaking of sound, music and other things, one of the big superstars of the world, Little Pimp. There he is! How's it going? Do you want to come up and say something?" Trump began by pointing out the rapper in the crowd, before eventually using Lil Pump's correct name and asking the crowd, "Does everyone know who he is? Do you know how big he is?" Later that month, he dropped a new song titled ‘Lil Pimp Big MAGA Steppin’, which contained the lines: “F*** a bad b**** send her back to ISIS, uh / Got a Rolls truck with no license, ooh / And I'm screamin' out 'F*** Sleepy Joe.'"
Of course, the internet seemed to find Lil Pump’s assertion ridiculous. “Lil pump is the same guy who became a trump supporter for clout so don’t take anything this one-hit-wonder has to say about Eminem serious,” wrote a Twitter user. Another Twitter user said, “Lil Pump calling Eminem irrelevant in an attempt to gain relevance is hilarious clownery.”
One Twitter user pointed out the disparity in numbers between either artists’ Spotify monthly listeners and wrote, “The real question is who is listening to Lil Pump’s irrelevant a**. Disrespecting a hip hop legend and Icon like Eminem isn’t going to end well for you @lilpump and he’s not going to sit down and talk it out with you like J Cole did. Stay in your lane.” Another Twitter user said, “so lil pump basically called Eminem irrelevant while actually being irrelevant himself to get relevant.”

On December 23, Lil Pump posted a photo of himself on Instagram, proclaiming that he's the modern-day Michael Jackson. "IM THE NEW AGE MICHAEL JACKASON," he wrote in the caption.
On January 17, 2020, Eminem released a surprise album, ‘Music to Be Murdered By’, which features guest appearances by Young M.A., Q-Tip, Ed Sheeran, Anderson Paak, Black Thought, among others. On December 18, 2020, a deluxe edition of the album, titled ‘Music to Be Murdered By – Side B’, was released. It contains a bonus disc with sixteen new tracks, with guest appearances by Skylar Grey, DJ Premier, Ty Dolla Sign, Dr. Dre, Sly Pyper, MAJ, and White Gold.
