Joyner Lucas has proven time and again he’s unafraid to use his pen and skill to examine a bevy of topics, and he has a new track out pairing with one of Hip-Hop’s most celebrated — and hated — veterans in Eminem. The song, “What If I Was Gay” was teased then released Halloween, and the fan reaction is harsher than expected.
The five-minute track features Lucas rapping from the perspective of a young man contemplating the reaction of him coming out as gay with Slim Shady rapping from the angle of a friend hearing the revelation. Check out the song below.
We’ve scoured Twitter for reactions to the track, which can be read below.

It's very easy to make fun of Eminem or Joyner Lucas for their "What If I Was Gay? song but they don't make music for people who know better, they make music for guys who are pissed all the time because they drink 4 cans of Monster a day.

I will never forgive the fake-woke teen shitbirds who let Joyner Lucas become a thing, or the corporate record executive demons who introduced him to Eminem— BRICK MORANIS (@lankgod) November 1, 2019
If the roles were reversed in that rumored Joyner Lucas/Eminem song Em would have most certainly referred to himself as a “celestial pansexual extraterrestrial” or something— will (@Dill_Wodd) November 1, 2019
