Eminem and Kid Cudi rap slams those who eschew face masks

Eminem has entered the debate about face masks in a collaboration with Kid Cudi, tackling an issue that is the subject of fierce disagreement in the USA and UK.

But perhaps he was being coy on goal because not long ago, Cudder announced his single with Eminem, "The Adventures Of Moon Man & Slim Shady" would be dropping on Friday.

Cudi takes the first half of the song, before Eminem takes the back half, much of which he dedicates to coronavirus safety precaution. Other half are just pissed off and don't want to wear a mask and they're just scoffin'.

The 4½-minute song goes on to reference George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, whose killings have spurred worldwide protests against racism and police brutality.

Plus, he speaks on the innocent Black lives lost to police brutality: "Prayers to George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery / How the f**k is it that so many cops are dirty?"

Several athletes criticized Brees for not understanding the goal of the protests, and he later apologized multiple times, saying his initial comments were "insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country".

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was the target of Eminem in the rapper's latest track.

The full "Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady" is now available to stream on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Pandora, Tidal, iTunes, SoundCloud, Google Play and Deezer.
