Eminem takes shots at 6ix9ine on Cordae’s “Parables (Remix)”
Shady is back and he has 6ix9ine in his sights.
Eminem resurfaces with his first song of 2022 on Cordae’s “Parables (Remix)”, which appears on the latter’s second album From a bird’s eye view. On his spitfire verse, the Detroit rapper shoots Tekashi.
“It’s so hard for me to understand that once was my life / Shit, it’ll make you wanna get out like a plea deal / So I treat a beat like it’s Tekashi, spit on that bitch like Meek Mill,” he raps.
The line references 6ix9ine’s racketeering case, for which he accepted a plea deal, and Meek’s showdown with the “Trollz” rapper in Atlanta in early 2021. Amid their beef, Meek has claimed that Tekashi rushed at him as he left a club and Meek responded by spitting on him.
“The feds sent him to get me out wtf,” Meek said after the fight. “I had to spit on him so he pulled out lol he really waited for me outside the club… I thought I was dreaming wtf we almost smoked him lol he posed a little threat popping up on the parking lot waiting for me.”
Elsewhere in his “Parables” verse, Em references the Obama family. “I was awfully shy, now I’m proud of myself / Like Obama’s kids, I came out of my shell (Michelle),” he raps.
In an interview with Apple Music, Cordae talked about getting a last-minute verse from Eminem for his album. “It was definitely last minute alley-oops and buzzers. So I appreciate my brother for sending this buzz beater,” he said while acknowledging Em’s influence.
“Any artist who takes a lyricist approach to making music in hip-hop definitely has some sort of Eminem influence. It’s like impossible not to,” he added. “My first song I released was ‘My Name Is (Remix)’. So that tells you everything, I have to say what I think of Eminem and how much his music has meant to me.
