Of Course! Eminem sends cease and desist to Vivek Ramaswamy over his rap bars
On July 26th, 2023, Brodigan from the Louder with Crowder Dot Com website (hey, that's me) wrote the following:
Unfortunately, we all know what happens next. 217 journalismers are currently on the phone looking to get a comment from Eminem bashing Vivek and all conservatives. "Eminem claps back against Ramaswamy" the content will read. Heaven forbid they let a cool, humanizing moment go by.
The Ramaswamy campaign had released Vivek spittin' bars and doing Eminem's "Lose Yourself" when he was at Harvard. Anyone who has followed politics for more than a day or two knows what happens when a Republican admits out loud they like anything in pop culture. The artist is a dick about it. Or, in Eminem's case, his lawyers are.
Wait, wrong clip. Here's CNN:
In a letter dated August 23, BMI, the publishing company, contacted Vivek's campaign attorneys:
"[We have] received communications from Marshall B. Mathers, III, professionally known as Eminem, objecting to the Vivek Ramaswamy campaign's use of Eminem's musical compositions (the "Eminem Works") and requesting that BMI remove all Eminem Works from the Agreement."
"BMI will consider any performance of the Eminem Works by the Vivek 2024 campaign from this date forward to be a material breach of the Agreement for which BMI reserves all rights and remedies with respect thereto."
To put it in similar, non-legalese terms, Eminem's lawyers be all like this:
Now it falls on the Ramaswamy campaign to be all like this:
If it's me advising the Vivek campaign, I would retire the candidate covering Eminem's copywritten material "Lose Yourself" in live campaign performances. What I would do instead is create five different PARODIES of Eminem songs and start performing them. If Vivek spits fast enough, he can get an entire verse out in fifteen seconds.
"The Real Slim Shady" would become "The Real Joe Biden."
"Love the Way You Lie" would be an ode to corporate media.
Instead of "Stan," a song called "Hunter."
"Cleanin' Out My Closet" would be how Kamala Harris got her start in politics with Willie Brown.
And "Ass Like That" would be a salute to popular social media influencer Rep. AOC.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
