‘Zeus’, who appeared on ‘Side B’ last month in ‘Music To Be Murdered By’, saw the rapper apologize to the singer for saying he ” alongside Chris BrownAbout Rihanna after Brown pleaded guilty to criminal assault in 2009.
« But, me, as long as I promise to be honest / And with all my heart, apologies, Rihanna», Eminem raps on« Zeus ». « For that leaked song, I’m sorry, Ri / It wasn’t meant to cause you grief.
« Anyway, it was wrong of me. »
Talk to Sirius XM Shade 45 program on “Zeus,” Eminem said he didn’t know how the ten-year-old song that contained Rihanna’s offensive lyrics leaked in the first place.
“I didn’t know how someone got it,” Eminem told Sirius XM host Gray Rizzy. “I have no recollection of even remembering that I wrote this verse. The rhyming patterns didn’t even sound familiar to me.
“So I was caught off guard too. I was like, ‘What the fuck was I saying that?’
Eminem went on to recall how the controversial lyrics in question were recorded at the start of the recording of his 2009 album ‘Relapse’ as he “was learning to rap again because of the drug situation I was going through.”
“I can’t find any excuses for that: I said it and I was wrong to say that, it was fucking stupid,” he said of Rihanna’s words. “It was one of those things it was: well, if that rhymes, say it.”
“It’s not even an excuse, but I’m just saying there was a phase I was going through with this ‘Relapse’ record. It was one of those things. I think I just said it because it rhymes.
“Looking back now, I should have thought about it better.”
Last weekend, Snoop Dogg responded to comments online about the reaction to his recently shared opinion that he could “live without” Eminem’s music.
