New interview: Tyler, The Creator responds Eminem’s diss on “Fall”

In 2018, Eminem released Kamikaze album which included the song “Fall.” He took aim at a number of hip-hop figures, including Joe Budden and Lord Jamar but Em’s attack on the Tyler, the Creator was by far the most controversial, as it was widely criticized as homophobic: “Tyler create nothin’, I see why you called yourself a fa**ot, b**ch.”

But it appears Tyler wasn’t too fazed by the lyrics. In a new interview with The Guardian, he says: “Did you ever hear me publicly say anything about that? Because I knew what the intent was. He felt pressured because people got offended for me. Don’t get offended for me. We were playing GTA when we heard that. We rewound it and were like: ‘Oh.’ And then kept playing.”

Eminem later expressed regret over the lyrics, saying it was an ill-conceived response to Tyler’s criticism of “Walk on Water. “When Tyler tweeted out the thing about ‘Walk on Water,’ ‘this fucking song is horrible.’ I was like alright, ‘I need to say something now,'” Eminem told Sway In The Morning in a 2018 interview. “Because this is fucking stupid. I’m not going let everybody just… I’m not gonna be America’s punching bag. I was angry when I said the shit about Tyler. The word that I called him on… that song was one of the things where I felt like, this might be too far. Because in my quest to hurt him, I realized that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it.”
