American rapper Eminem (real name Marshall Mathers) is once again scoring headlines with his latest track that is, apparently, aimed at making his “career disappear.” This comes after he announced earlier this year that he would soon be jumping back onstage after over four years, with his new album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grace). And so he has, with his glorious swag.

This exclusive single of his has been titled Houdini, and the GOAT has really brought about something much different than before as he aims to kill off his alter ego who earned tremendous popularity with his album from 1999, The Slim Shady LP. But what’s really iconic is how the rapper is dressed as he takes down his alter ego, ironically, as Batman’s sidekick, Robin.

Eminem is Back as Robin in His Exclusive Single Houdini

Four years after the release of his last album in January 2020, Music To Be Murdered By, Eminem has once again returned to baffle his fans with his recently released single Houdini from his upcoming album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grace).

In the music video of the song, Slim Shady seemingly returns to the rapper’s current times, and then the GOAT Mockingbird singer has to take him down, but not without first dressing up as the Dark Knight’s iconic sidekick in red and green: Robin.

The track sees Mathers singing in the opening verses (via EminemMusic / YouTube):

Little baby devil with the forked tongue and it’s stickin’ out / And it’s stickin’ out like a sore thumb / With a forehead that it grew horns from / Still a white jerk / Pullin’ up in a Chrysler to the cipher / With the Vics, Percs, and a Bud Light shirt.

What’s more, is that this song also cites other artists, including Megan Thee Stallion, for whom he sang, “If I was to ask for Megan Thee Stallion if she would collab with me / Would I really have a shot at a feat?” and Steve Miller Band’s Abracadabra, which he used on the chorus.

This goes on to catch even more flames with all the controversial things the rapper decided to add to this latest rap from him, including giving reference to RuPaul, transgenders, and even going as far as referring to his own children as “brats.”

The Venom singer rapped:

Cancel me, what? Okay, that’s it, go ahead Paul, quit / Snake a— prick, you male crossdresser, fake a— b—h / And I’ll probably get sh-t for that / But you can all su-k my d—k, in fact, f—k them/ F—k Dre, f—k Jimmy, f—k me, f—k you / F—k my own kids, they’re brats / They can screw off, them and you all / You too, Paul, got two balls, big as RuPaul’s.

Adding to the fact that this single pays direct homage to his 2002 song Without Me, with all the similar themes and styles, it also featured guest appearances from Snoop Dogg, Pete Davidson, 50 Cent, and Dr. Dre, among others.

All of this being said, this single most certainly brought back nostalgia and how The Slim Shady LP from 1999 had him going viral, so seeing the GOAT rapper trend on not only YouTube but also X and Google with this latest track (as per Time) was only inevitable.

Fans React to Marshall Mathers’ Latest Track

While his going viral after bringing back some new stuff for fans with his iconic rapping skills is one thing, what’s more, is that fans are having the most Eminem-y reactions to this latest track as well. Taking to the comment section of his music video, here’s what they’re saying:
