Eminem's Diss Track 'Doomsday Pt. 2' Sets Fire to Benzino, Shows Love to J. Cole | WhatsOnRap

Eminem Takes Aim at Benzino and Gives a Shoutout to J. Coleon a New Track “Doomsday Pt.2” 

Diss Track: Giraffe Metaphor and Rap Community Shade in 'Doomsday Pt. 2'

Eminem dropped "Doomsday Pt. 2" from the collaborative album "All Is Yellow" by Cole Bennett and Lyrical Lemonade. The track, already available in New Zealand and Australia, is making waves for Eminem's bold disses targeting his old rival, Benzino.

In this latest release, Eminem takes a playful yet cutting approach, mocking Benzino's stature with a clever riddle. Drawing on an earlier anecdote from 2010, where Eminem humorously expressed a fear of giraffes, he now equates Benzino to the opposite of the long-necked creature. The metaphor cleverly suggests that Benzino poses no threat, emphasizing his lack of a figurative "neck" for Eminem to attack.

Turning a common rap phrase on its head, Eminem responds to the call to "go at his neck" by highlighting Benzino's purported absence of one. This not only becomes a physical jest but also implies that Benzino is an unworthy adversary in the rap arena, lacking the substance to challenge Eminem.

The use of the giraffe in Eminem's lyrics accomplishes a twofold objective, bridging a connection to Eminem's personal experiences while simultaneously undermining Benzino's reputation within the rap community. Eminem's adept lyricism and clever wit become evident as he effortlessly integrates personal stories, humor, and disses into his musical narrative.

Continuing his verbal assault, Eminem directs attention to Benzino's alleged personal life, referencing short arms and a questionable hotel encounter with another man. The mention of Benzino's daughter, Coi Leray, adds another layer to the diss track:

Arm so short he can’t even touch his hands / When they’re up above his head doin’ jumpin’ jacks (Wow) / Sorry, I don’t mean (What?) to upset you, Ben’ (Yeah) / When I talk about (What?) all the debt you in (Uh) / I hear that you been (What?) creepin’ on the low / In them cheap hotels (Yeah), that they catch you in (What?) / Jesus Christ, dawg (Damn), when you said two-ten (What?) / Never guessed you meant (Damn) at the Red Roof Inn (Sh*t) / In a room with one single bed, two men (What?) / Shady, man, you can’t—, yes, you can / Well, I guess then I regret to inform you, hate to spoil the day (What?) / But this doesn’t bring me no joy to say (Huh?) / Guess that Coi Leray feat’s in the toilet, ayy?

The Red Roof Inn
reference, a budget hotel chain, ties into rumors about Benzino's reported expulsion from the hotel and speculations about his se*uality. Eminem doesn't shy away from addressing these rumors, further intensifying the lyrical confrontation.

Towards the end of the verse, Eminem takes a moment to shout out J. Cole and Dr. Dre's label Aftermath, expressing his loyalty to the latter. Despite praising Cole's skills, Eminem notes the absence of a collaborative song between them.

In a reflective moment, Eminem also asserts his dominance on Drake's 2009 hit "Forever," prompting listeners to reconsider who delivered the standout verse on the track. This latest release showcases Eminem's prowess in storytelling, humor, and lyrical sparring, maintaining his position as a rap icon.
