In one of the recent episodes of The Brilliant Idiots, Charlamagne Tha God and Andrew Schulz talked about the recent trend on TikTok where the users are trying to cancel Eminem.
Charlamagne Tha God: TikTok is trying to cancel Eminem. I think it’s funny as f**k when kids go back to the eras where they should not be even playing around. If you were talking to a child, you will be like ‘don’t go in that 90’s box.’ Thy are just playing old Eminem lyrics and doing what outrage culture does. Trying to build a case against Eminem. But I’m going to tell you why it will never work. THAT’S EMINEM’S WHOLE STICK.
Andrew Schulz: Yeah, it’s tricky man, because if you go back and listen to some Eminem songs or even like skits, Eminem was one of the wildest people in history bro.
Charlamagne Tha God: “Eminem was the reason we thought we could get away with that type of s**t. [Laughs] For real though. In the era we grew up where there is a bar so if you are growing up in entertainment, you are performer, you are rapper, comedian, radio personality, if your bars are the Howard Sterns and The Stars and Eminem, all these people you hear saying wild s**t, what are you supposed to do? It’s crazy but the funny part is seeing little kids being upset about it. You are not going to build a case against Eminem. You know why? Cause all the people who have a power to ‘cancel’ or whatever the f**k that means, they grew up loving Eminem too. Eminem was one of the biggest stars in the world and at one point THE BIGGEST STAR. He was everybody’s guilty pleasure. I never was a fan. I respected him as a lyricist but I never was a die-hard Eminem fan. But he has a lot of die-hard fans.
Andrew Schulz: I was a fan bro.
