Via: @eminem

Eminem attempts to make his career disappear with new single titled “Houdini,” produced by himself and Luis Resto. It serves as the lead single to Eminem’s twelfth studio album The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce). The track is named after Harry Houdini, a popular magician known for his death-defying stunts like the Chinese Water Torture Cell, which Eminem replicates in the intro to his 1999 track, “Role Model.”

“Little baby devil with the forked tongue and it’s stickin’ out,” raps Eminem in the opening verse, before he adds, “Still a white jerk pullin’ up in a Chrysler to the cypher with the Vics, Percs and a Bud Light shirt.” At the end of the first verse, Eminem references Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting incident with Tory Lanez  with a clever wordplay: “If I was to ask for Megan Thee (What?)/ Stallion if she would collab with me / Would I really have a shot at a feat? (Haha) I don’t know, but I’m glad to be back like Abra-abracadabra…”

In the third verse, Eminem claims that there are still many kids who want to act like him while namedropping R. Kelly and Black Eyed Peace: “In the coupe, leaning back my seat (What?)
Bumpin’ R. Kelly’s favorite group (Uh), the black guy (Guy) pees (Pees, haha) / In my Air Max 90s / White Ts, walkin’ parental advisory / My transgender cat’s Siamese (Why?) / Identifies as black, but acts Chinese.”

At the end of the verse, Eminem says a big f–k you to everybody, including Paul Rosenberg, Dr. Dre and his own kids: “Go ahead, Paul, quit, snake-a-s prick, You male cross dresser (Haha), fake-a-s b-tch / And I’ll probably get s-t for that (Watch) / But you can all suck my d–k, in fact / F–k them, f–k Dre, f–k Jimmy, f–k me, f–k you / F–k my own kids, they’re brats (F–k ’em) / They can screw off (Yeah), them and you all (Uh) / You too, Paul, got two balls / Big as RuPaul’s (Woah).”

The music video features cameos from Paul Rosenberg, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, GRIP, Westside Boogie, EZ Mil, Alchemist, Denaun Porter, Royce 5’9″, Pete Davidson, Jimmy Iovine, three of his daughters and others and it references to his iconic “Without Me” music video.
