“I never wanted that verse to be heard,” Eminem said of a leaked verse he had written that tore apart Black’s owned media company.
Eminem cast shadow on Diddy’s Media company rebellion and when the company returned the shadow, he quickly stepped forward and agreed with everything they said.
“I agree with Revolt,” the rapper said after the letters he had written leaking criticizing the company were leaked. “This is an unnecessary distraction. I never wanted that verse to be heard, it heated up the moment and I thought better of it and decided to withdraw it.”

Eminem blamed the continued leaks of the “great WeTransfer trick”, indicating that he had no intention of that verse seeing the light of day. Originally written for the 2019 hit Conway the Machine “Bang,” Eminem changed the lyrics for the final cut.
While “heated” when he wrote them, Em said he has no problems with the company now and that, in fact, “I would appreciate the opportunity to work with them on some positive things and turn this in a different direction.”
In the scrapped verse, Eminem raps, “Yes, he yells at Puffy Combs, but f – k REVOLT / You guys are like a fucking remote control / Now I understand why our button broke / Why did you press the heat but do nothing though / Especially when it comes to hitting this throne. “
Revolt is a black-owned media company founded by Diddy in 2013 that houses a movie operation and a music-focused television network. After the letter leaked, the company responded forcefully, posting from its official Instagram Tells a simple message: “F – k you too Eminem”.

That black-and-white image was simply captioned, “Now Back to Our Movement,” a clear reference to Black Lives Matter’s continued protests following the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.
The company went into more depth in a statement to Billboard, where Eminem was described as a “guest in black culture”, and his critical verse an “unnecessary distraction” from that movement.
“REVOLT is a BLACK [sic] Media company, owned by a black businessman, with a majority black team, that’s authentic and real about it, “the statement continued, adding that amid continued Black Lives Matter protests, the company is using its platforms. “for important issues about social justice, equality”.

“Eminem trying to come for us is an unnecessary distraction,” the company continued. “Not well.”
The company also questioned how the letter was leaked and said it could have damaged the work they are trying to do. “What Em’s ‘disaster’ could have done is that it could have damaged our business,” Revolt said. “Fortunately, it was a minor distraction on social media, but the possible implications should not be right.”
Now that Eminem did indeed agree with the company and said that he not only had no control over the leak, but also had no intention of having that verse made public, it remains to be seen how or if Revolt will have anything more to say on the matter. .
