Nick Cannon – The Invitation Lyrics Meaning
The ongoing feud between Nick Cannon and Eminem is getting better and better than ever. Eminem had collaborated with Fat Joe & Dre on the song titled ‘Lord Above‘, which was released on the 6th of December, 2019. In the track, the Detroit rapper was essentially taking the shots at Mariah Carey and her fiance Nick Cannon. On the 9th of December 2019, Nick Cannon released a track titled ‘The Invitation’ where he fires back at Eminem and his family. Let’s learn the meaning behind the lyrics of the song ‘The Invitation’ by Nick Cannon.
The ongoing rap crusade between Cannon and Eminem isn’t recent, People reported. This mess began in 2001 after Eminem asserted that he and Mariah Carey went out and Carey said they actually didn’t. In the song, Nick goes as far as to calling Eminem a ton of names that we can’t publish in a blog site. Nick, then, speaks of Eminem’s ex-wife, Kim, and his infamous daughter, Hailie Jade. Oh no, this cannot be good!
Introduction: The Invitation Lyrics
Eminem responded to Nicholas’s track immediately on Twitter., which is quoted below.
U mad bro? Stop lying on my d**k. I never even had a chauffeur, you bougie f**k.Eminem’s response to Nick Cannon.
50 Cent jumped into the drama supporting Eminem by posting a picture of Em on Instagram and caption which reads:
I don’t understand to save my life why someone would pick a fight with EM. He is a different kinda animal, I haven’t seen a motherf****r come close to beating him man. 😠 hey Nick that s**t was trash, I oughta kick you in yo a** when I see you P**K!
The Invitation Lyrics Meaning
Let’s dissect the meaning behind the lyrics of the song ‘The Invitation’ by Nick Cannon section-wise.
[Intro: Suge Knight]
I don’t know why Suge Knight is jumping out from a moving train, but I hope he will be safe from Eminem’s upcoming wrath. In the intro section, Knight openly says the sales of these diss tracks will be monitored very closely to see who wins this time! Has he even seen Eminem’s discography? This is so pathetic!
[Chorus: Hitman Holla, Charlie Clips, & Prince Eazy]
The rappers in this track are probably predicting their victory already by saying there are $100 bills everywhere in their beds. I hope they can afford separate beds from the sales of this track, everyone, please pray for them. Eminem is destined to outperform these people if they seek victory number wise, however. Regardless, the rappers tell Eminem to play it safe as there is no coming back into the rap game with a straight face after a major defeat. These guys better worry about how to win in the rap game than to formulate a strategic plan to ruin someone like Eminem’s credibility in the hip-hop industry. Worry about making your own bread than to snatch it from someone else, losers!
[Verse 1: Nick Cannon]
Nick initiates his verse by telling Eminem that this is a final invitation to settle down in this war. This time, there will be no coming back to the losing side, apparently. Cannon then immediately calls Em’s ex-wife, Kim, a cr*ck. Nick Cannon is attempting to get personal with Eminem as he calls out Em’s daughter, Hailey Jade, as well as other daughters that Eminem has mentioned in his hit song “Mockingbird“. However, this is nothing remarkable. It’s not the first moment in the rap industry that someone is trying to inflame Eminem by calling out on his family. We all know what happened to MGK after he did that.
Suge Knight is recognized for being the manager of Tupac Shakur, once upon a time. Their connection clearly didn’t go well. We can indeed discern the mental pollution of Knight calling Cannon the new Pac. Yet, Nick Cannon takes the opportunistic assertions from Knight seriously to even compare himself to Tupac in this song. How credible do you think Suge Knight and his words are, Nick? You must be really foolish to believe that you have anything to compare yourself with Tupac Shakur.
[Verse 2: Hitman Holla]
Another rapper, Hitman Holla, says Eminem is out of luck. Hello? Since the competition in this rap battle is seen through the number of sales of these tracks, we all know Eminem is still going to hit platinum if he really wants to. Holla tries to show Eminem that his real name “Marshall” has a cheap clothing store “Marshall’s” that competes with Target. Even though this doesn’t really put a dent in Eminem’s head, nice try though. Hitman couldn’t hit it this time.
[Verse 3: Charlie Clips & Nick Cannon]
You an M&M, how you mad a star burst on the scene?
Ironically, this sub-par line is one of the decent lines in ‘The Invitation’. However, Starburst is not caramel confection. It’s a chewy fruit-flavored confectionary. Bad shot at Rap God, AGAIN!
[Verse 4: Prince Eazy]
Eminem is called out as a culture vulture once again for being white by someone irrelevant like Prince Eazy. What do you think you have done for hip-hop culture other than smoke w**d and rap about money, Prince? Eminem has done far more than any black rappers for the hip-hop community and for the black culture. Prince tries to make a good line by mentioning Mariah Carey’s diss, “Obsessed,” released in 08, but fails miserably as he doesn’t realize that ‘Obsessed’ came out in 2009. In that same year, Eminem dropped “The Warning”, effectively lulling the beef. Do your fact checks before you try to make a point to destroy someone as big and as intelligent as Eminem.
[Outro: Suge Knight]
S**t, where he gon’ go? He just the new Vanilla Ice
Vanilla Ice is a rapper who was considerably prominent in the 90s, only a decade before Eminem smashed mainstream vogue. Ice was a white rapper, just like Eminem. However, his music was extensively criticized and taunted. Then, by the mid-90s, Vanillas’s stardom had mostly vanished. This bar is somewhat intriguing since it is coming from Suge Knight. Suge once had a well-known pursuit with Vanilla Ice. Suge Knight had managed Mario “Chocolate” Johnson, a ghostwriter who had provided lyrically to Vanilla Ice’s debut album To The Extreme. However, he was never reimbursed for his contributions.
Suge comparing someone like Vanilla Ice to a legend like Eminem really shows his disrespect towards the hip-hop community and the black culture. He is in the game only for money and it’s very evident. We can easily guess why his relationship with Tupac Shakur didn’t work out. Grow up, kiddo!
Conclusion: The Invitation Meaning
Who do you think will win this time? Is it going to be Eminem or Nick Cannon? Nick, you are calling out Eminem with a bunch of rappers when you demanded one on one fight to prove your non-existent manhood to Mariah Carey. You’ve already lost boy!
