After unleashing a controversial “Shady CXYpher” video Monday (November 10), Eminem is back at it with the release of “Detroit Vs Everybody,” a cut that features Big Sean, Royce Da 5’9", Danny Brown, Trick Trick and Dej Loaf, who kicks things off with the hook.
"This ain’t the squash beef state,” Royce says, keeping the the Shady XV track rolling with a "Saved By The Bell" reference. “You thinkin’ makeup, we thinkin’ Lark Voorhies’ face.”
Big Sean follows Royce up with raps about how dangerous Detroit can be. “Welcome to Detroit, where if you get that promotion, don’t worry,” Big Sean rhymes. “Them bullets will still be at yo ass firin’.”
Danny Brown establishes himself next, offering up some of his credentials. "Honestly, no honor roll,” he raps. “But honored up in them streets.”
Hot on the heels of his cypher verse about punching Lana Del Rey "right in the face like Ray Rice," Eminem closes this act with another controversial NFL news line. This time, Slim Shady references Adrian Peterson, who was indicted on charges of child abuse earlier this year.
Beyond the controversial lines, Em explains why he feels he’s gotten the success that he has attained. “I still never A-B-C the sh—t,” he raps. "Mainstream appeal, but the skill is what made me/ Ever since before they called Jay Dee Dilla.”
While Trick Trick doesn’t rap on the song, he appears at the end of the cut saying that he’s taking the instrumental to the hood to get a remix crackin'. So, it sounds like there's a lot more on the way for Shady fans as they await the November 24 release of SHADY XV.
