Mariah Carey and Eminem were once a thing more than ten years ago something which has been haunting the two and refused to let them go. They had a brief sexual relationship which seems to have never ended well. While the beef is rarely physical, the two express their emotions over each other through lyrics and poetic Dis Tracks. The two Grammy award winning Hip Hop artists have been releasing a Dis Track after a Dis Track. It all started back then after their break up when Mariah Carey released “Obsession,” the track was targeted to Eminem whom she claimed was obsessed with her and he was unable to move on even after the failed relationship.
Eminem responded by releasing Dr Dre’s produced hit track “warning,” Eminem seemed to admit his failure in the relationship but claimed that Mariah Carey was in denial that they were once hooked. “Listen, girly, surely you don’t want me to talk,” he rapped. “About how I nutted early ’cause I ejaculated prematurely/And bust all over your belly and you almost started hurling/And said I was gross, go get a towel, your stomach’s curling/Or maybe you do, but if I’m embarrassin’ me/I’m embarrassin’ you and don’t you dare say it isn’t true.”
Wednesday June 16th was Obsession’s 12th Anniversary and Mariah Carey could not let it slip away just like that, she released a Tik Tok video impersonating Eminem as in the track obsession. She transforms herself from the 51-year-old mother to the diva she was as Mariah Carey Mid way in the video, she wipes the mirror and an image of her impersonating Eminem reappears, much looking the person in the Obsession video, she is seen donning a goatee, bandana, hat and hoondie in a heavy five o’clock shadow as Eminem would do. On the video she has added some lyrics before finishing with a strong statement, ‘Bounce’ indicating the guy in the subject should move on, a sign that Eminem has yet let her go even after that long.
The release of the video and how events have been unfolding suggest that both the two have got some unfinished business. Contrary to that, it is not yet clear what led to their uneventful break up and why they keep on scolding each other time after time.
