Eminem tells Vivek Ramaswamy he’s not the real Slim Shady – stop rapping “Lose Yourself”

Eminem has mistook Republican presidential nominee Vivek Ramaswamy for a candidate not the real Slim Shady. The rapper last week demanded that Ramaswamy stop using the hip-hop artist’s music after the politician rapped the Grammy- and Oscar-winning song “Lose Yourself” from the movie 8 Mile during a campaign rally.

Republican businessman and 2024 presidential nominee performed the song at the Iowa State Fair earlier this month. In a cease and desist declarationThe performance rights organization BMI informed Ramaswamy’s campaign that it “received a communication from Marshall B. Mathers III, known professionally as Eminem, objecting to the use of Eminem’s musical compositions by Vivek Ramaswamy’s campaign. “

A spokesman for Ramaswamy’s campaign said in a statement to NBC News that “to the chagrin of the American people, we have to leave the rapping to the real Slim Shady.”

If Ramaswamy continues to use Eminem’s music during his campaign for the 2024 election, he will be in violation of the cease and desist order, the letter said.

In response to the cease and desist letter Ramaswamy said on X: “Will the REAL Slim Shady please stand up?” He didn’t just say what I think he did, did he?”
