The official Twitter account for The Walking Dead shared the parody album cover shortly after Eminem dropped his latest diss track, aimed at rapper Machine Gun Kelly. "In my quest to hurt him, I realized that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it", he said. It was one of the things that I kept going back to and going "I don't feel right with this.'" He also elaborated on why he went after Tyler in the first place, explaining that he was upset when the rapper called his Shady XV comp "ass."
Check out his full explanation above.
During the third instalment of the interview which was posted on YouTube on Thursday Sway asks - around the seven minute mark - if a lyric featured on a song called The Ringer (featured on the album) is based on a real incident.
Sway went on to ask about MGK and their "discrepancy" to which Em responded: "Just for the record the thing that was going on that he was saying about my daughter, I didn't even know about that until literally like a year and a half later".
The "last straw" came when Tyler tweeted that Eminem's song with Beyoncé, Walk on Water, was "horrible". "The reason that I dissed him is...'I'm the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45′ or whatever he said, right?" "I'm not gonna be America's punching bag and (let) motherf-ers think it's cool and safe to say whatever they f- they want about me". Like I'm trying to hinder his career. "I had enough money in '02 to burn it in front of you, ho", Em raps.
"I don't give a fuck about your career".
"I'd rather be 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you". You know how many f***in' rappers that are better than you?
Although the Home Office (at that point led by current Prime Minister Theresa May) didn't comment on the specific case, they told the newspaper in a statement: "Coming to the United Kingdom is a privilege, and we expect those who come here to respect our shared values".
