Nick Cannon Releases Eminem Diss Track : The Invitation
Interestingly, Eminem’s verse is a response to statement Nick Cannon made in an interview where he stated he wanted to physically fight Eminem while Cannon was dating Mariah Carey.
Also, “The Invitation,” is an actual invitation. Cannon is inviting Eminem to appear on his MTV show, Wild’N Out. The art for the track has large print with the song’s title, written over a picture of the Wild’N Out set.
The two have had a contentious relationship since Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey got married 2008. Allegedly, Eminem and Mariah Carey had a brief relationship in 2001 that did not end well, and, upon the marriage, brought Nick Cannon into the fray. Eminem dissed the couple in the song “Bagpipes from Baghdad,” which led the Carey’s response in “Obsessed,” which ultimately led to Eminem’s diss track in 2009, “The Warning.”
Check this out, uh, Eminem, whatever your name is, right
You know, I don’t never do no talkin’, but Nick is family
This is your invitation (Hitmaka, th-there he go)
To prove to everybody else what you’re about (Go Grizz)
Winner takes all (Right Now Sound)
Eminem’s a bitch [Chorus] Hundreds everywhere now it’s money on the bed
I can say I love it, but it’s hard to understand
I just want the real, baby, you can have my last
You know, if you go out, baby, ain’t no comin’ back
