And while Em doesn't regret standing up for himself, he does actually regret using a homophobic slur to do so.

The two rappers have both released diss tracks targeted at one another, and now Eminem has opened up about it all in an interview with Sway Calloway.

Eminem's feud with Tyler, the Creator stems from when he appeared to make fun of Eminem's 2017 single "Walk on Water", tweeting, "Dear god this song is terrible, sheesh how the f-k". "I'd rather be 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you", he says.

"When Tyler tweeted out the thing about "Walk on Water"-this f-king song is terrible, I was like, 'Alright, I need to say something now because this is f-king stupid, '" the rapper recalled to Calloway". So I sat back and I'm like, 'Ok, that's fine, ' people can talk insane about me, that's fine, they should express themselves and they have a right to.

The 45-year-old insisted he did like Tyler, but he kicked off after the rival rapper made a decision to publicly slate his song.

Eminem said his "breaking point" came when Tyler criticised his Beyoncé collaboration "Walk On Water". "I'm not gonna be America's punching bag, and motherf****** just wanna think it's cool and safe to say whatever the f*** they want about me".

There's been more beef in the world of hip-hop lately, thanks to an ongoing row between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly, it all started after MGK called Eminem's daughter Hailie "hot as fuck" back in 2012. "Just don't go public with it and publicly express your opinion about how much my s*** is trash", Eminem explained. Like I'm trying to hinder his career.

"I don't give a fuck about your career. "You would suck a dick to fuckin" be me for a second", says Em.
