Today, 12 years ago, Eminem dropped “The Warning”

On this day, exactly 12 years ago (July 30, 2009), Eminem dropped one of the most lethal diss tracks in history, “The Warning,” produced by Dr. Dre, as a response to Mariah Carey’s “Obsessed” song.

Even though the song was not released as a single or as part of an album, “The Warning” appeared on three Billboard charts, including US Rap Songs charts.

Some of the memorable lyrics include: “Listen, girly, surely you don’t want me to talk about how I nutted early ’cause I eja**lated prematurely and bust all over your belly and you almost started hurling and said I was gross, go get a towel, your stomach’s curling.

Carey did not publicly respond to “The Warning”, but in September 2010, his then husband Nick Cannon, who was also dissed in the song, responded with a song titled “I’m a Slick Rick.”

“The Warning” is considered the downfall of Mariah Carey’s spectacular career.
