Eminem - The Ringer (Lyrics)

  • “The Ringer” sees Eminem continuing his criticism of the state of hip-hop in 2018, focusing especially on mumble rappers, some of whom he calls out by name like Lil Xan and Lil Pump.

    The song also continues themes he explored on 2018’s “Chloraseptic (Remix).” Specifically, Eminem criticizes the double standards of the public towards him in the wake of his 9th album, Revival. Critics are rewarded for pushing negative views about him, but should he retaliate he falls further in their esteem.

    Finally, Em also takes aim at Donald Trump again, pointing out that the President has yet to answer his 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher Verse as well as several other missives he sent on Revival.

                        Maybe the vocals should have been auto-tuned
                        And you would have bought it
                        But sayin' I no longer got it
                        'Cause you missed the line and never caught it
                        'Cause it went over your head, because you're too stupid to get it
                        'Cause you're mentally retarded but pretend to be the smartest
                        With your expertise and knowledge, but you'll never be an artist
                        And I'm harder on myself than you could ever be regardless
                        What I'll never be is flawless, all I'll ever be is honest
                        Even when I'm gone they're gonna say I brought it
                        Even when I hit my forties like a fuckin' alcoholic
                        With a bottle full of malt liquor
                        But I couldn't bottle this shit any longer
                        The fact that I know that I'ma hit my bottom
                        If I don't pull myself from the jaws of defeat and rise to my feet

                                  Garbage/paper towel flingers at work. So messy, I left. I use wet napkins to clean. Paper towels spread dust/bacteria. Just realized they want "white" glove service. They want to be my boyfriend. Ex-squad leader was like that. I drove him places, did most of the heavy lifting at work, and advised. I was his right-hand man (even though I'm a woman).

                                                    Ems fast but he is clearly healthy, healthy people have bigger lung capacity. Most healthy people can spit words as fast as Eminem. People who are unhealthy and are skilled in the art of rap can even do it. Not hating though. Been listening for 10 years

                                                          All I am simply is just an emcee
                                                          Maybe "Stan" just isn't your cup of tea
                                                          Maybe your cup's full of syrup and lean
                                                          Maybe I need to stir up shit
                                                          Preferably shake the world up if it were up to me
                                                          Paul wants me to chill, y'all want me to ill

                                                          Old me kill the new me, watch him bleed to death

                                                          Possibly I'm dead, I must be possessed
                                                          Like an evil spell, I'm E-V-I-L (evil, but spelled)
                                                          Jam a Crest white strip in the tip of my dick with an ice pick

                                                          Bang it with a pipe wrench
                                                          While I take my ballsack and flick it like a light switch
                                                          Like vice-president Mike Pence
                                                          Back up on my shit in a sidekick as I lay it on a spike strip
                                                          These are things that I'd rather do than hear you on a mic
                                                          Since nine-tenths of your rhyme is about ice and
                                                          Jesus Christ man, how many times is someone gonna fuck on my bitch?
                                                          (Fuck my side chick!)
                                                          You won't ever see Em icy, but as cold as I get on the M-I-C
                                                          I polarize shit so the Thames might freeze
                                                          And your skull might split like I bashed you upside it
                                                          Bitch I got the club on smash like a nightstick (yeah)
                                                          Turn down for what? I ain't loud enough
                                                          Nah, turn the Valium up!
                                                          'Cause I don't know how I'm gonna get your mouths to shut
                                                          Now when it doesn't matter what caliber I spit at
                                                          I'll bet a hundred thousand bucks
                                                          You'll just turn around and just be like, "Man, how the fuck
                                                          Sourpuss gonna get mad just 'cause his album sucks
                                                          And now he wants to take it out on us?" (Ooh-ooh)
                                                          But last week, an ex-fan mailed me a copy
                                                          Of The Mathers LP to tell me to study
                                                          It'll help me get back to myself and she'll love me (ooh-ooh)
                                                          I mailed the bitch back and said if I did that
                                                          I'd just be like everyone else in the fucking industry
                                                          Especially an effing Recovery clone of me
                                                          So finger-bang, chicken wang, MGK, Iggy 'Zae
                                                          Lil' Pump, Lil' Xan imitate Lil' Wayne
                                                          I should aim at everybody in the game, pick a name
                                                          I'm fed up with being humble
                                                          And rumor is I'm hungry, I'm sure you heard bumblings
                                                          I heard you wanna rumble like an empty stomach
                                                          I heard your mumblin' but it's jumbled in mumbo-jumbo
                                                          The era that I'm from will pummel you
                                                          That's what it's comin' to
                                                          What the fuck are you gonna do? Where you runnin' to?
                                                          I'm gonna crumble you and I'll take a number two
                                                          And dump on you if you ain't Joyner
                                                          If you ain't Kendrick or Cole or Sean then you're a goner
                                                          I'm 'bout to bring it to anyone in this bitch who want it
                                                          I guess when you walk into BK you expect a Whopper
                                                          You can order a quarter pounder when you go to McDonald's
                                                          But if you're lookin' to get a porterhouse you better go get Revival
                                                          But y'all are acting like I tried to serve you up a slider
                                                          Maybe the vocals should have been auto-tuned
                                                          And you would have bought it
                                                          But sayin' I no longer got it
                                                          'Cause you missed the line and never caught it
                                                          'Cause it went over your head, because you're too stupid to get it
                                                          'Cause you're mentally retarded but pretend to be the smartest
                                                          With your expertise and knowledge, but you'll never be an artist
                                                          And I'm harder on myself than you could ever be regardless
                                                          What I'll never be is flawless, all I'll ever be is honest
                                                          Even when I'm gone they're gonna say I brought it
                                                          Even when I hit my forties like a fuckin' alcoholic
                                                          With a bottle full of malt liquor
                                                          But I couldn't bottle this shit any longer
                                                          The fact that I know that I'ma hit my bottom
                                                          If I don't pull myself from the jaws of defeat and rise to my feet
                                                          I don't see why y'all even started with me
                                                          I get impeached, my enemies die
                                                          I don't ceasefire 'til at least all are deceased
                                                          I'm eastside, never be caught slippin'
                                                          Now you see why I don't sleep
                                                          Not even a wink, I don't blink
                                                          I don't doze off, I don't even nod to the beats
                                                          I don't even close my fuckin' eyes when I sneeze
                                                          "Aw, man! That BET cypher was weak, it was garbage
                                                          The Thing ain't even orange—oh my God, that's a reach!"
                                                          Shout to all my colorblind people, each and every one of y'all
                                                          If you call a fire engine green, aquamarine
                                                          Or you think water is pink
                                                          "Dawg, that's a date, " "Looks like an olive to me."
                                                          "Look, there's an apple!" "No it's not, it's a peach!"
                                                          So finger-bang, Pootie Tang, Burger King, Gucci Gang, Mookie, dang
                                                          Charlamagne gonna hate anyway
                                                          Doesn't matter what I say
                                                          Give me Donkey of the Day
                                                          What a way for 2018 to get underway
                                                          But I'm gonna say everything that I wanna say
                                                          Welcome to the slaughterhouse, bitch (yeah)
                                                          Invite them in like a one a day
                                                          I'm not done (preach)
                                                          'Cause I feel like the beast of burden
                                                          That line in the sand, was it even worth it?
                                                          'Cause the way I see people turnin'
                                                          Is makin' it seem worthless
                                                          It's startin' to defeat the purpose
                                                          I'm watchin' my fan base shrink to thirds
                                                          And I was just trying to do the right thing, but word
                                                          Has the court of public opinion reached a verdict
                                                          Or still yet to be determined?
                                                          'Cause I'm determined to be me, critique the worship
                                                          But if I could go back I'd at least reword it
                                                          And say I empathize with the people this evil serpent
                                                          Sold the dream to that he's deserted
                                                          But I think it's workin'
                                                          These verses are makin' him a wee bit nervous
                                                          And he's too scurred to answer me with words
                                                          'Cause he knows that he will lyrically get murdered
                                                          But I know at least he's heard it
                                                          'Cause Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service
                                                          To meet in person to see if I really think of hurtin' him
                                                          Or ask if I'm linked to terrorists
                                                          I said, "Only when it comes to ink and lyricists"
                                                          But my beef is more media journalists
                                                          (Hold up, hold up, hold up)
                                                          I said my beef is more meaty, a journalist
                                                          Can get a mouthful of flesh
                                                          And yes, I mean eating a penis
                                                          'Cause they been pannin' my album to death
                                                          So I been givin' the media fingers
                                                          Don't wanna turn this to a counselling sesh
