New Song: Lyrical Lemonade & Eminem – “Doomsday Pt. 2”




“Doomsday Pt. 2” by Eminem from Cole Bennett and Lyrical Lemonade compilation album, All Is Yellow, is out now! The song is produced by Daniyel and John Nocito with the original “Role Model” production coming from Eminem, Luis Resto, Mel-Man and Dr. Dre.

In the song, Eminem makes fun of Benzino, who has been dissing Slim Shady in the last few years. “Now I got a riddle, one condition, you mustn’t laugh, what is the opposite of Benzino? A giraffe, “Go at his neck,” how the f–k is that? How can I go at somethin’ he doesn’t have?” Eminem raps in the song.

Eminem employs a riddle to draw a comparison between his old rival, Benzino, and a giraffe, an animal known for its distinctively long neck. This riddle cleverly references a moment back in 2010 when Eminem, during the filming of “Not Afraid” behind the scenes, was ironically asked what he feared, to which he humorously responded with “Giraffes.”

By posing the riddle and asserting that the opposite of Benzino is a giraffe, Eminem is essentially saying that Benzino is not, and has never been, a source of fear for him. This is reinforced by the punchline that Benzino has no neck—a playful exaggeration suggesting there’s nothing there for Eminem to attack, both literally and metaphorically.

The line “Go at his neck,” a common phrase in rap that typically means to verbally attack someone fiercely, is turned on its head with Eminem’s retort, “How can I go at somethin’ he doesn’t have.” Here, Eminem is not just making a physical joke at Benzino’s expense but also implying that Benzino is not a worthy opponent in a rap battle. The joke about Benzino’s lack of a neck is used to underscore the point that Eminem feels there’s nothing to attack because Benzino poses no real threat or challenge to him.

The giraffe metaphor serves a dual purpose: it recalls a personal joke from Eminem’s past, thus connecting it to his larger narrative, and it functions as a tool to diminish Benzino’s reputation in the rap community. Eminem’s use of this comparison to a giraffe, which is known for its long neck, to claim that Benzino has none, is a classic example of his complex lyricism and sharp wit. This is a testament to Eminem’s skill in integrating personal anecdotes, and humor and dissing his rivals within his music. (via Genius).

Em continues bashing Benzino and mentions his daughter Coi Leray: “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 (Shit) / 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?

Red Roof Inn is an American economy hotel chain in the United States with over 600 properties globally, primarily in the Midwest, Southern, and Eastern United States. Benzino has been reportedly kicked out of the hotel and allegedly sleeping with another man. Several rumours have been spread that Benzino is gay after he has reportedly “told the LGBTQ+ community to stop flirting with him.”

At the end of the verse, Eminem also shouts out J. Cole and Dr. Dre’s label Aftermath: “I’m back with Cole Bennett, And I been at the level J. Cole been at, It’s Aftermath that I ride for ’til I die.” Em has previously mentioned and praised J. Cole’s skills in the numerous interviews and Cole has named Eminem as one of his biggest influences. Even though there is much mutual respect between the two rappers, they have never released a song together.

Em also reminded everyone who had the best verse on Drake’s 2009 single, “Forever,” which also features Lil Wayne and Kanye West: “I’m not tryna be controversial, I’d rather, Talk about s–t with the purpose that matters, Like who had second best verse on “Forever”?” It’s popular consensus that Eminem laid the best verse on “Forever,”. Em is suggesting people to discuss who had the second best verse on a song, because you know who belongs the best title. Kanye West also previously revealed that when he first heard Em’s verse, it made him cancel appointments to rewrite his verse.
