Eminem is known for being an incredible rapper and lyricist. He’s also known for having the occasional feud. Here are eight rumored beefs he’s had throughout his career.
Mariah Carey - The fighting with these two apparently began after they dated for a short time, or as Mariah calls it, "hung out." Since then, they've referenced each other in many songs.
Jermaine Dupri - Years ago, JD claimed he was a better producer than both Timbaland and Dr. Dre. Dr. Dre responded to that claim on the Eminem track, "Say What You Say." Jermaine responded, then later went after Eminem. Of course, Em did what he does best and went after JD on multiple occasions.
Will Smith - During his acceptance speech at the 1999 MTV VMA's, Will talked about how he didn't use profanity to sell records. Unfortunately for Will, Eminem took that personally. And he rapped about it on "The Real Slim Shady."
Ja Rule - Before Ja was involved in the Fyre Festival debacle, he was involved in the feud with Eminem and 50 Cent. Ja spoke harshly about Eminem's family on "Loose Change," and Eminem responded — repeatedly.
Machine Gun Kelly - It started when MGK tweeted then deleted that Eminem's daughter was "Hot as f—." The two rappers went at it for years before Eminem recently claimed to be over it on "Music to Be Murdered By."
Christina Aguilera - On her MTV special 'What A Girl Wants,' Christina discussed Eminem's relationship with girlfriend Kim. He called her out on 'The Real Slim Shady,' and the feud began. She later addressed him on her hit 'Can't Hold Us Down,' and in many interviews.
Everlast - The House of Pain frontman, not pleased that Em didn't acknowledge him a few times in passing, spoke about him and his daughter on "Ear Drums Pop." The two went back and forth for years but later squashed things and appeared on Busta Rhymes "Calm Down" in 2014.
Nick Cannon - This beef was inevitable as both men had relationships with Mariah Carey. Nick tried to defend Mariah, and the feud between him and Eminem began and continued to escalate. To this day, they are both addressing each other in songs.
