Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy made headlines for rapping Eminem lyrics in public, and now the original artist has reportedly revoked privileges to use his music on the campaign trail.
Ramaswamy rapped a segment of Eminem’s 2002 hit song "Lose Yourself" onstage at the Iowa State Fair in early August. Ramaswamy had just wrapped up his "Fair-Side Chat" with Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds and was signing autographs onstage when the Eminem song started playing. Ramaswamy told Reynolds that the song, featured in the film "8 Mile," starring Eminem, is his favorite "walkout song" while on the campaign trail.
However, Marshall B. Mathers, III, professionally known as Eminem, reportedly objects to the Republican hopeful using his music at public events.
