Rapper and reality TV star Benzino morphed into a mumbling mess and shed tears as he recounted the decades-long beef with hip-hop eminence Eminem.

The lyricist-turned-owner of The Source magazine claims that Eminem’s fans love the Detroit-based rapper because “he’s White. They don’t f— with us.”

Fueled by alcohol and a marijuana blunt while on the “Drink Champs” podcast hosted by N.O.R.E and DJ EFN, Raymond “Benzino” Scott alternated between rebuking Eminem severely and then weeping while saying he has nothing against the 8 Mile star.

“F— Eminem and f— everybody down with Eminem. My thing is this, that n—- won’t face me,” Benzino said. “I know he ain’t gone fight me,” he added. “I know that, but how about I’ll battle that n—- … How about we put this to bed, three round battle, where me and him battle rap, we have minutes, and we battle. How about that? Just battle, no violence. After that we can hug it out and let this s— be over.”

Benzino changes gears with Eminem

Benzino’s emotions revved up as he questioned Eminem’s hip-hop authenticity and dubbed him the “Rap Elvis” who has benefited tremendously from a Black art form. Benzino made the parallel between that and encounters with violence and racism during his time in Boston.

“You think Boston’s a joke? Boston ain’t no f—ing joke … Surviving Boston with the racism and the motherf—— gang s— in Boston since ‘85?” he added. “Hip-hop is the blood that we lose, like them young n—- in Chicago and everywhere else, they killing each other and it’s over hip-hop. Hip-hop is who we are, he can’t come in and invade hip-hop and Rosenberg, and make trillions of dollars. This n—- didn’t even go to [Nipsey Hussle’s] funeral, bro. If he’s so f—ing hip-hop, how come he ain’t block 10 blocks in motherf—ing Detroit and give it to the homeless Black people. Man, f— Eminem, bro.”

After being overcome with emotions, Benzino shifted gears in his assessment of Marshall Mathers.

“I don’t have nothing against Eminem. Em can rap, but I care about us more. I don’t want to talk about it no more,” he said. “For 22 years, every time I do an interview they ask me about Eminem. The f— you want me to do? Come on, man. I love my daughter, I raised my daughter like any other street n—-”

The father was extra sensitive when he talked about the tightrope his daughter, Coi Leray, has to walk in the music industry because of his adversarial relationship with Eminem.

“My daughter came into the industry figuring that ‘Hey, I gotta be cool with Eminem because everybody’s against my dad.’ You think this s— is f—ing cool? Nah, man. We’re failing as a people,” he said.
