Eminem Releases a Statement After Slamming Diddy's Media Company Revolt in Leaked 'Bang' Verse

Eminem is back tracking his lyrics.

Earlier this week, an alternate verse from Conway The Machine‘s song “Bang” was released, where Eminem, 47, slammed Diddy‘s Black media company REVOLT.

Shortly after the verse was leaked, REVOLT released a statement, calling Eminem a “guest in Black culture” and called him out as an “unneeded distraction” amid the Black Lives Matter protests.

“Why does Eminem, someone who is a guest in Black culture, think he can talk down to REVOLT,” REVOLT said in their statement to Billboard. “REVOLT is a BLACK media company, owned by a Black entrepreneur, with a majority Black team – that is authentic and real about this. With the immediate need for REVOLT to use our platform for the important issues regarding social justice, equality, and ensuring continuing to be the outlet – across ALL OUR PLATFORMS, we’re doing important work. Eminem trying to come for us is an unneeded distraction. It is not OK.”

Eminem has now released a statement on Twitter, agreeing what REVOLT said, while also saying he was “heated” when he first recorded the verse.

“I agree with Revolt…this is an unnecessary distraction. I never meant for that verse to be heard, I was heated in the moment and thought better of it and decided to pull it back,” Eminem writes.

“Stuff that I never intended to release continues to leak from the huge WeTransfer hack,” Eminem continued. “I don’t have any issues with Revolt…I’d actually welcome the opportunity to work with them on some positive things and turn this in a different direction.”
