By now, we all know that Eminem is one of the greatest rappers of all time, except for Iggy Azalea, who still thinks herself the "realest," if her lyrics to "Fancy" hold any truth.

Eminem is making his rounds on the Internet yet again after another rape lyric, this time involving Iggy Azalea hit the web. The video can be seen below


It has always been obvious that Eminem just doesn't care what people think about his lyrics and he has spoken out about it before in an interview with Anderson Cooper when he was featured on "60 Minutes." He defended himself by saying "This is music, this is my art, this is what I do," as well as further explaining his logic behind his lyrics.

Although there are many other rappers who say inappropriate things, Eminem is almost always the main topic of this discussion.

Since then, it has become a more taboo thing to do, even though Kendrick Lamar calling many mainstream rapper's in his "Control" verse last year did have many people ready to see a rebirth of this form of rapping.

While Eminem has never left dissing others out of his lyrics, his critics still have not learned to stomach him and their numbers have only grown.

This fact can be proven just by looking at the amount of support that Iggy Azalea is getting after being targeted by Em, not to mention that Lana Del Rey has also received an outpouring of affection after recently being
