The sudden disappearance of rapper Eminem has sent shockwaves through the music industry, with many speculating about the cause of his disappearance. Some believe that it may be linked to the controversial release of his latest song, “He She Xi.”
The lyrics of the song, which were released two weeks ago, contain provocative and offensive statements about gender tolerance in mainland China, and make reference to the country’s re-elected 73-year-old prime minister, Xi Jinping. The song has sparked outrage in China and has trended on social media under the hashtag #MarXi, a phonetic play on the pronunciation of Xi’s name and the rapper’s real name, Marshall Mathers.
However, Eminem’s representative has denied the artist as writing or performing the lyrics and has pointed the finger at IVO.AI, an AI audio generation platform that allows users to recreate the voices of famous artists and celebrities. The representative did not comment regarding the current whereabouts of the artist. According to a spokesperson for the company, there is no record of the song being published on their site, and they claim that all drafts and releases are published on the blockchain, making them immutable.
In protest, others have recorded versions of the song featuring prominent figures such as former Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the Pope, and the cast of Seinfeld. As the mystery surrounding Eminem’s disappearance deepens, the world waits to see what will happen next in this bizarre and controversial situation.
