Eminem is under fire because of a graphic lyric about rape in his new song.
The 42-year-old rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, is featured on Dr. Dre’s new album “Compton: The Soundtrack,” and a line from his verse on “Medicine Man” has everyone scrambling.
“Ain’t no one safe from, non-believers there ain’t none/I even make the bitches I rape cum.”
After the album was released Friday, Twitter exploded with criticism.
ugh Eminem! why you got to still be making rape lyrics?! that was such a sick drop, rape lyrics aside. #Compton

Another Eminem line about rape. The man is disgusting and so are the people that listen to him.
