On Wednesday (May 1), Bieber took to Instagram Story to share some thoughts on Slim Shady's "The Ringer," which appeared as the first cut off his 2018 LP, Kamikaze. "I just like Em's flow but don't like that he's dissing new rappers I like the new generation of rap he just doesn't understand it," the 25-year-old star said of the diss track. As you probably remember, the viral track became one of the most-talked about cuts on the LP and hears the Detroit rapper vent his frustration at mumble rap from the scene's current stars like Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Xan, Lil Pump and more.
On the other end, "The Ringers" hears Em argue that most rappers can't compete with some of the greats like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Big Sean. "I heard your mumblin' but it’s jumbled in mumbo-jumbo/ The era that I’m from will pummel you, that’s what it’s comin' to/ What the f**k you’re gonna do when you run into it?/ I’m gonna crumble you and I’ll take a number two/ And dump on you, if you ain’t Joyner/ If you ain’t Kendrick or Cole or Sean, then you’re a goner," he rhymes.
Bieber was named-dropped by Em on his 2018 "Kick Off" freestyle, but the reference was not much of a diss. "Justin Bieber in a Catholic school/Selling dust and reefer when your back is to him," he spit. Scroll on below to see a screenshot of Bieber's Instagram Story!
