Royce Da 5’9”, Joell Ortiz, and Kxng Crooked annotated some of their own rhymes as well as rhymes from other emcees. One of the lyric break downs the artist formerly known as Crooked I decided to tackle was Eminem’s controversial verse from the “The Shady Cxvpher.”

During his performance, Em took a swipe a singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey when he rapped, “Play nice? B***h I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight.”

Crooked gave his own interpretation of the lyrics which includes the California rapper suggesting music fans should be thankful for Eminem’s artistic perspective.
