Bars for days! Rapper Eminem is back with a dope “Kick Off” freestyle. The freestyle is 11 minutes long, and full of straight bars. Em took to his twitter to announce the freestyle, stating it was inspired by the release of his new battle rap film “Bodied.”
In the freestyle, you can hear Em mentioning names such as Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Reese Witherspoon, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg and more. It was recorded live at the Shelter at St. Andrew’s in Detroit, Michigan.
While Em does name drop throughout the 11 minute clip, the most notable mention was where he mention Grande, along with the 2017 Manchester concert bombing that occurred during an Ariana Grande performance, killing 22 people. He said, “Seeing Ariana Grande sing her last song of the evening, and as the audience from the damn concert is leaving, detonates the device strapped to his abdominal region… I’m not gonna finish that for obvious reasons.”
He also mentions that Justin Bieber is a “Catholic schoolboy” turned into a “drug dealer.”
