Social Media Reacts to Eminem’s New Song ‘Houdini’ Which Takes a Shot at Megan Thee Stallion

Eminem is gearing up to release his 12th studio album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce), this summer, with its first single, “Houdini,” dropping on Friday (May 31). The track features the controversial lyrics that have become a hallmark of his career.

In one notable verse, the Detroit rapper references the 2020 shooting incident involving Megan Thee Stallion: “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.”

Unsurprisingly, these lyrics did not sit well with many fans of the Houston artist, who has been working to move past the traumatic event. Journalist Keith Nelson Jr. tweeted, “This is not going to go well for him.”

One commenter said, “I hope Megan chews Eminem’s tired a** up,” while another remarked, “Eminem’s career has largely been built on being shocking and provocative to certain audiences… Being 51 years old and taking shots at Megan Thee Stallion? Out of touch.”

In August 2023, Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot, causing her injuries. He was found guilty of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, possession of a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and negligent discharge of a firearm.

It’s worth noting that Eminem is not the only artist to make light of Megan’s situation. Fans speculated that Drake referenced the incident in his 2022 song “Circo Loco”: “This b**ch lie ’bout gettin’ shots, but she still a stallion/ She don’t even get the joke, but she still smilin’.”

Nicki Minaj also took direct shots at Megan in her January release “Big Foot,” with lyrics like, “Like a bodybuilder, I keep raisin’ the bar/ F**k you get shot with no scar?/ This little piggy toxic, somebody adopt it.”
