Eminem Says He Sides With Chris Brown While Rapping About Rihanna Assault in Leaked Verse Snippet
A snippet of a leaked verse from Eminem in which he sides with Chris Brown while seemingly talking about the assault of Rihanna has been circulating online according to several reports. Brown pleaded guilty to one count of felony assault against the Barbadian singer, who he previously dated, in 2009.
On the leaked track, which is reportedly from the recording sessions for 2009’s Relapse, Eminem raps, “Of course I side with Chris Brown, I’d beat a bitch down too.” Although the song never made the final cut for Relapse, a different version of it eventually turned into B.o.B.’s 2011 track “Things Get Worse.” The version that did get released, despite having no mention of Chris Brown or Rihanna, sees Eminem saying he “murdered” Dakota Fanning and “put Natasha Bedingfield in a washer.” Elsewhere on “Things Get Worse,” Eminem raps about Angelina Jolie, Carmen Electra, Jessica Simpson, and his mom.
The snippet in question was reportedly uploaded to Reddit with the title “(SNIPPET) Eminem – Things Get Worse (Rihanna Diss).” Eminem and Rihanna have of course collaborated on “Love The Way You Lie,” “Numb,” and “The Monster.”
