Nick Cannon is ready to take his dispute with Eminem to the next level.
After exchanging shots with Em for more than the last year, Nick now says he wants the two to settle their differences not inside a rap ring, but inside a real one. The rapper/actor/comedian has officially challenged Shady to a boxing match.
“It’s silly. It’s ridiculous. And he says it was all for entertainment, so let’s take this entertainment to another level,” Cannon said on his radio show. “I feel like you was disrespectful and as a man, man to man, let’s just do it like old school. Let’s take it back to a prize fight.”
A Facebook page for the event has also been created, urging fans to, “Like this page and start the petition! Let’s get Nick Cannon and Eminem in the boxing ring and face this drama man to man!!!”
On Cannon’s official blog, Rollin’ With Nick Cannon, there was also a post hyping up the event. “Nick and the rest of the crew on Rollin’ with Nick Cannon think it’s time for the feud to be over once and for all,” it reads. “And to draw Slim Shady out of hiding, Nick has decided to do it all for charity.”
Cannon recently released the track “Imma Slick Rick” directed at Eminem. —Adam Fleischer
