Melle Mel is being trashed for his newly-released Eminem diss track after teasing it online the night before.

Premiered on YouTube on Tuesday (August 8), the clip is simply titled “Melle Mel’s Response to Eminem’s Latest Diss” and finds the Hip Hop pioneer mentioning The Game and Pee-Wee Herman as he hits back at the Detroit native.

The Top 5 is cap/ You the piss that’s on the floor in the elevator of rapWhy you ducking on The Game when you shit on my name?/ Why they put Pee-Wee Herman in the hall of fame?” he raps.

I would give you a pound, but I’d break your hand/ I got a lawyer so white, he will take your land/ Yo, check your man, come and look at your friend/ ‘Cause I think that Eminem is popping pills again!”

Check out the short diss record below:

Responses to the track were not very kind to the Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five rapper, with some saying that even Nick Cannon’s lacklustre attempts at dissing Em were better.

“I never thought it was possible to make a worse diss than Nick Cannon’s disses to Em. Today, I was proven wrong. Well done,” one person wrote, while another added: “Between YOU, THE GAME and NICK , I think you might beat them in having the worst disstrack EM has ever gotten.”

A third person commented: “Cannot believe one of the originators of hiphop released this and stated going against Eminem was going to be ‘the easiest thing he’d ever do’…. Delete this Melvin, you’ve embarrassed yourself massively here.”

“Omg. Sad seeing ogs go out like this. Really sad,” another commenter said. “But hey it’s about as good as any new music that comes out now adays lmao.”

Another person demanded “a 500 word apology” from Melle Mel for wasting their time, while an Eminem fan said they were let down by the track as they were looking forward to Eminem’s response — which they now doubt they’ll get now. “Was hoping this would get Em out for a response but absolutely no chance,” they wrote.

In March, Mel told The Art of Dialogue that Em’s relevance in Hip Hop is directly tied to his skin color. “Obviously he’s a capable rapper,” he said. “If you was talking about sales, he’s sold more than everybody. If you were talking about rhyme style, okay he got a rhyme style. But he’s white. He’s white!

“So now if Eminem was another n-gga like all the rest of us, would he be Top 5 on that list when a n-gga that could rhyme just as good as him is 35? That had records and all that? He’s 35. He’s white.”

He continued: “And anybody could be as mad … They could feel how they wanna feel. If you don’t think that race plays a part in the equation of how great he is — I heard one of the dudes that’s down with him, Royce Da 6’9″ [mislabeling Royce Da 5’9″] or one of those – I heard he’s just as good as Eminem. Why he ain’t as big as Eminem? Because he’s Black! Ain’t none of that shit hard to figure out. Eminem gets a top spot because he’s white.”

Eminem never quite forgot about the comments as he addressed them in a firestorm of deadly bars on Ez Mil‘s new track, “Realest.”

Released on Friday (August 4), the single features Shady staring down his critics as he raps: “Hip Hop has been good to me, huh/ But when they say that I’m only Top 5 ’cause I’m white, why would I be stunned?/ My skin color’s still working against me/ ‘Cause second, I should be, to none/ Bein’ white being why they put me at five (Nope)/ That’s why they can’t put me at one.”

Then, turning his attention to Melle Mel, he spits: “Shoutout to Furious Five and Grandmaster Flash, but boy/ There’s someone who really is furious/ Stay out his path, his wrath avoid/ I’ll be the last to toy with a juice head whose brain is half destroyed, like a meteor hit it/ Now with Melle Mel, he lost his ass to ‘roids.
