What a time to be alive. What a goddamn time to be alive. Let’s break down what we just watched in case you’re not totally clear. That’s a super washed up, mirror glasses-wearing Coolio warning an increasingly washed up Eminem that President Donald Trump might have him murdered for dissing him so many times. If that doesn’t perfectly represent the crazy times we’re living in, nothing does. And you know what? I could see it happening. I could absolutely see Donnie Trumps having Marshall Mathers whacked by a Russian hitman. Having an iconic rapper murked is well within Vladimir Putin’s ability. Don’t act like it isn’t.
It wouldn’t be a bad look for Eminem’s career either. He’s done it all. He’s made all the albums. He’s sold all the records. He’s got all the money. His legacy is set. Now all he needs is an epic exit. Making record like Revival ain’t it. Getting assassinated because he pissed off the President of the United States? YUP. That’s a great final chapter for a guy who is currently crawling towards the end of his career. I’m not saying I want it to happen. I love Eminem and hope he lives a healthy life and dies of natural causes at the age of 155. But for the bow on top of an iconic career? You can’t really ask for more than an assassination at the hands of a POTUS. That’d be legendary.
