Rap Superstar Eminem mentions Steelers QB Big Ben in new freestyle, “Despicable”

1 May

A new Eminem freestyle song entitled “Despicable” went viral late this week.

As usual, it’s genius, albeit laced with clever inappropriateness, vulgarities, and obscenities.

The twist?

Pittsburghers will love this one: towards the beginning of the song, he mentions man of the hour (or, well, not so much …) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a.k.a. “Big Ben.”

The line says, “I’d rather turn this club into a bar room brawl. Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall.”

If you really want to hear the song, Google it. I don’t want to post a link to it because, well, as aforementioned, the song is pretty explicit.

I don’t know whether it is a good or a bad thing that Eminem is rapping about Big Ben, but, it certainly showed that he’s crossed into the throes of pop culture iconoclasm and has now been immortalized in song, for better, or, for worse.

Personally, I’d rather have a lesser-known quarterback than one who is suddenly “infamous” tabloid-fodder and the subject of an Eminem lyric. But, that’s just me. I guess, in a way, it’s KIND OF, by SOME stretch of the imagination, SORT OF cool.

Ok ….. not really.
