Eminem has promised his fans that he and comedian Chris D’Elia will find out who the real Slim Shady is.

The 46-year-old rapper challenged D’Elia to a rap battle after he heard the comedian’s infamous impression — which the Detroit rapper used at the end of his new song Homicide with Logic.

D’Elia went viral last year when he shared a video of himself imitating Eminem’s rapid-fire flow from his 2017 BET Awards freestyle cypher.
