The Eminem/Everlast feud has expanded to include Eminem’s one-time friends Fred Durst and DJ Lethal of Limp Bizkit. Eminem has some choice and predictably profane words for the pair on “Girls,” a track from the group D12’s forthcoming Devil’s Night.
Eminem is apparently upset about a comment Lethal made in December during the Limp guys’ visit to “TRL.” Lethal, who was in House of Pain with Everlast but was also friends with Eminem, at first said of their beef, “They’re both men, they’ll work it out.” But he added that if the two were to take their differences outside the realm of their respective records, “Everlast would definitely win, you know what I mean?”
Em has retaliated with “Girls,” his third volley in his war of the words with Everlast. Lethal was supposed to guest on “Quitter,” one of Eminem and D12’s Everlast-dissing songs, which calls on fans to physically attack the former House of Pain MC. Lethal bowed out, inspiring Em to call him and Durst “cowards” and “sissies” on “Girls,” and ridicule their hit “Rollin'”: “C’mon dog, it was supposed to be on that song (‘Quitter’)/ Talking about how bad you hate him/ Now you all on his thong … You f
ing sissy/ Up onstage screaming how people hate you/ They don’t hate you/ They just think you’re corny since Christina played you.”
Later in the song, Eminem claims he left Durst hanging on purpose when the red-capped singer tried to give him a high five at the MTV Video Music Awards in September – though Em claimed his reason for dissing Durst and Lethal is for comments Lethal made two months later. Eminem also allied himself with Limp Bizkit when he attacked Everlast on the D12 B-side, “Sh- on You,” which was released in October, and “Quitter,” released in December.
Representatives for Durst and Lethal did not return phone calls by press time. Devil’s Night comes out June 19.
