American rapper, Eminem has responded to a TikTok campaign that tried to “cancel” him with the release of a new song.
Apart from the unique feature of the song having an animated video, another interesting aspect of the release of the song, “Tone Deaf,” is that it responds to a TikTok campaign that tried to cancel the over a decade old lyric of his song with Rihanna.
The song is included on the rapper’s 2020 album, “Music to Be Murdered By — Side B,”
So far, critics have reacted to to the the 2010 single, “Love the Way You Lie,” their emphasis has been on making light of domestic violence.
Eminem raps: “I can’t understand a word you say (I’m tone-deaf)/ I think this way I prefer to stay (I’m tone-deaf)/ I won’t stop even when my hair turns grey (I’m tone-deaf)/ ‘Cause they won’t stop until they cancel me.”
The controversy about the relevance of the song, especially when it comes to the fans and dispensations took its course as the rapper got support on social media against Generation Z, people born between the mid-1990s to the early 2010s.
With an affirmation,a follower on Twitter wrote, “I’m technically from Gen Z but trying to cancel Eminem is absurd in my eyes this man has amazing music that has really helped me when I hit mental lows.”
He also got accolade from another twitter user who commended his work. The twitter user wrote: One of the best animated lyric videos I have ever seen. Amazing work. You’re a legend. One of the best to ever do it and doing it.”
