This song follows a theme running through Kamikaze
in which Eminem declares his dominance over the contemporary generation of rappers. Em criticizes those in the modern rap game who use ghost writers.I got a couple of mansions
Still I don't have any manners
You got a couple of ghost writers
But to these kids it don't actually matter
Some fans claimed the lyrics was a reference to the ghostwriting accusations aimed at Drake
but Eminem told Sway Calloway that definitely isn't the case.
"I like Drake," he said. "What I'm telling you with these lines is, I don't know what's real and what's not, at this point. Because you hear s--t about this rapper, that rapper, whatever. I'm telling you that I don't do it. Never have and never will. If I ever need a ghostwriter, I need to just f---ing put the mic down.”
Em also decries the rise of mumble rappers.Hatata batata, why don't we make a bunch of f---in'
Songs about nothin' and mumble!
And f---it, I'm goin' for the jugular
The track, co-produced by regular Drake collaborator Boi-1da, even has the sort of modern trap bent contemporary rappers frequently use.
