What Did Drake Say About Eminem?

Rap Up reports that Aubrey Drake Graham stated that he is not afraid of a rap battle with Marshall Bruce "Eminem" Mathers III.  Hot 97's Ebro Darden revealed details from a private conversation he had with Drake about Joe Budden and Eminem.  During the private conversation, Ebro explains that he asked the Canadian rapper about the rumor that Slim Shady was preparing to diss him.

Ebro says that Drizzy laughed and then explained, "That's not gonna happen.  He'd never do that and if he did, I've got something for him too." According to XXL Ebro has explained that it was a joke but we have all seen jokes lead to rap battles in the past.

"Young Papi" and Meek Mill's beef all started with a simple tweet by Meek.  The Philadelphia rapper wanted people to stop comparing him to the Young Money rapper because he allegedly doesn't write his own rhymes:

Marshall Mathers and 50 Cent are generally blamed for burying Murder Inc. rapper Ja Rule's career.  50 had beef with Ja Rule prior to meeting Dr. Dre and Slim Shady.  Once 50 signed with Shady/Aftermath Records, Ja Rule and Irv Gotti made it clear that they didn't approve.

Slim Shady's beef with Nick Cannon began because of Cannon's ex-wife, Mariah Carey.  The rapper mentioned her in his 2002 track "Superman." After the song came out Mariah denied ever dating the emcee.  The feud for nearly a decade.  Time will tell if Ebro's innocent joke will lead to what could be one of the greatest rap battles of all time: Eminem v. Drake
