Rapper Eminem, through his representatives and music publisher BMI, has reportedly issued a cease-and-desist letter to GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, instructing him to stop publicly performing Eminem’s music on his campaign trail.

The letter stated that any future performance of Eminem’s works by the Ramaswamy campaign would be considered a “material breach” of the agreement between them.

Eminem, who publicly endorsed President Biden in 2020, faced backlash from conservatives on social media for this action. They criticized the rapper for objecting to Ramaswamy’s promotion of his music, with some pointing out the similarities between Eminem’s anti-war messages in his songs and Ramaswamy’s political positions.

In response to the cease-and-desist letter, Ramaswamy took to social media, quoting Eminem’s popular song, “The Real Slim Shady.” He wrote, “Will The REAL Slim Shady Please Stand Up? He didn’t just say what I think he did, did he?”
