Twitter Is NOT Backing Nick Cannon on His Eminem Diss Track, ‘The Invitation’ (Audio)

“The Invitation” is an invitation to dust off some unflattering memes

Nick Cannon needs to bring out the big guns to beat Eminem on wax. While the “Wild ‘N Out” host did get some voicemails out of Suge Knight, the “America’s Got Talent” alum otherwise just collaborated with some rappers named Hitman Holla, Charlie Clips and Prince Eazy on diss-track, “The Invitation.”

Twitter didn’t think the group — or the bars — were anywhere near Slim Shady-level quality. Check out some choice fan replies below, including a pair featuring “SpongeBob SquarePants.” There was also a Michael Scott-from-“The Office” response.

Readers can listen to the song itself, a response to Marshall Mathers’ unkind verse on Fat Joe’s “Lord Above,” via the YouTube video posted at the top of this story. “Lord Above” audio can be found at the bottom of this post, as can a little bit of a history lesson on this particular rap beef.

Here is Cannon’s verse, which opens the song. Lyrics are courtesy of

Ain’t no comin’ back, that’s a fact, this the invitation
Told Joe to lean back, don’t get hit with this retaliation
I f— with Crack, but the white boy he f— with crack (Crack)
Pills and smack, s—, and he ’bout to relapse
Call Kim, somebody get Hailie
And that other kid you raisin’, that ain’t even your baby (Daddy)
Took a page out of Drake book, this might get a Grammy
We goin’ back to back ’til you respond on the family
My baby mama killed you off a decade ago
You’re still cryin’ about it, bitch, now who really the ho?
I called Joe to set you up and you fell for the job
Slim won’t show for the video, ’cause he terrified of my squad
I heard your chauffeur got a video of you suckin’ a c—
You paid him off, then laid him off, now who really the opp?
Suge called me the new ‘Pac, I ain’t no killer but don’t push me
How the f— y’all got me battlin’ Elvis Pussly? N—-

And how those words were received:

That’s an awfully high percentage of dislikes.

As the top YouTube comment put it: “They had to put ‘Eminem Diss’ just to remind us what we listening cuz this s— is so confusing and weak on both ends.”

That censorship is courtesy of your friends at TheWrap.

OK, 10 more:

The beef between Mathers and Cannon’s ex-wife Mariah Carey goes back a full decade.

Here’s 2009’s “The Warning” by Eminem as a reminder:

Finally, listen to Em’s verse on “Lord Above” via this next YouTube link. His turn comes just after the two-minute mark.

Enjoy. (You know, unless you’re one of the very small percentage of people in Cannon’s camp on this particular back-and-forth.)
