Thirty seconds into the two-minute freestyle track, Eminem raps: "I'd rather turn this club into a barroom brawl/Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall."
It's not particularly surprising that Eminem would mention Big Ben in verse (he mentions a lot of things), but it is a bit different that he's so current with his disses. Usually, Eminem is a few years late to the game with who he insults, as evidenced by the fact that on his last album he rapped about Kim Kardashian, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Jessica Simpson. (In a video referencing Simpson, Eminem dressed up as her ex-boyfriend, Tony Romo.)
For the record, Em's best NFL reference is from 1999's "Just Don't Give A [expletive]: "I'm buzzin/dirty dozen/naughty rotten rhymer/cursin' at you players worse than Marty Schottenheimer." Now that's wordplay, my friends.
