Eminem vs. Nick Cannon: Round One

Remember "Bagpipes from Baghdad," the new Eminem track about Mariah Carey we told you about? Well, Nick Cannon's heard it too, and he. is. pissed. In a blog post from over the weekend (since taken down, but cached here), Cannon calls Eminem "Slim Lamey," accuses him of racism, and, best of all, announces a we-very-much-hope-imminent rap battle. For those wondering what that hilarious dude from Wild ’N Out would be doing rap battling anybody, we'll take this opportunity to remind you — yep, Nick Cannon's a rapper, too! Here, enjoy the dulcet tones of his 2003 single, "Gigolo." [MTV]
