During Shade 45's SiriusXM interview recently, Eminem talked about the controversial lyric he recorded about Rihanna that was a reference to Chris Brown's attack on the singer in 2009.

A leaked 2019 song titled "Things Get Worse" has the following lyrics from Eminem: "I'd side with Chris Brown, I'd beat down a b*** too."

In the song "Zeus" on his latest album "Music to be Murdered by: Side B," the acclaimed rapper apologized to Rihanna.

Eminem admitted to Gray Rizzy that he was initially confused by the pushback when the song leaked out.

The multi-awarded rapper recalled the recording of "Things Get Worse" as a hazy memory since he was recovering from drug addictions at the time.

Eminem added: "I think that being able to look back, I mean, that's not even an excuse, but I'm just saying like that there was a phase I was going through with that Relapse record ... I don't know, it was one of those things."

The "Not Afraid" rapper went on to explain that he thinks he just said it because it rhymed and that he's looking back now and thinks he's done a terrible thing saying it.

On "Zeus," Eminem rapped his apology to Rihanna, with whom he has collaborated on songs like "Love The Way You Lie" and "The Monster."

He rapped: "But, me, long as I re-promise to be honest / And wholeheartedly, apologies, Rihanna / For that song that leaked, I'm sorry, Ri / It wasn't meant to cause you grief."

Eminem's global success and acclaimed works have been widely regarded as having broken racial barriers, allowing white rappers to be accepted in popular music.

He is also considered one of the best rappers of all time and is credited with popularizing hip hop in Middle America.
