Eminem surprised fans with the release of a deluxe version of his most recent album, ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ on Friday.
On one of the newly-added songs, “Zeus,” Eminem apologizes to Rihanna for referencing her violent assault at the hands of Chris Brown in a song that was recorded over 10 years ago, but surfaced on the internet last year.
“Of course I side with Chris Brown, I’d beat a bitch down too,” he rapped at the time.
In “Zeus.” Eminem addressed the poor choice of lyrics and admitted it was “wrong” to have recorded in the first place — even if it was over a decade ago.
“But me, long as I re-promise to be honest
And wholeheartedly, apologies, Rihanna
For that song that leaked, I’m sorry Ri
It wasn’t meant to cause you grief
Regardless, it was wrong of me”
