Though Eminem is no stranger to controversy, it is his most recent and alleged use of sound effects that have landed the rapper in hot water.
coming from a performing stand point, i get the effect of sound effects on stage, but there’s a certain point that cross’s the line. i’m one of eminem’s number 1 fans but to hear 3 gun shots coming straight from his set had me scared af. not gonna lie. especially in this world...— M (@macykatemusic) June 10, 2018

"This whole country is going nuts/ and the NRA is in our way/ they're responsible for this whole productions/ they hold the strings, they control the puppet/ And they threaten to take away donor bucks so they know the government
won't do nothing/ and nobody's punching, gun owners clutching their loaded weapon/they love their guns more than our children."
