Eminem Admits He Briefly Thought A Comedian’s Impression Was Actually Him

The world isn’t big enough to handle two Eminems.

Eminem, a.k.a. Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is known for his compelling lyricism and sardonic commentary on social issues and is regarded as one of the best-known rap artists today. His delivery is unparalleled.

But one dude comes in at a very close second.

The “Venom” rapper was so impressed with comedian Chris D’Elia’s impression of him, because even though they look nothing alike, his mannerisms were convincingly spot on.

D’Elia, donning a loose, black hoodie, free-styled with angst from what appears to be in the comfort of his home garage to mock Eminem’s 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher.

For the uninitiated, cyphers are ancillary to the BET awards with a series of videos in which both established and up-and-coming rappers and beat-boxers get down with the free-flow. Some consider this the main event over the doling of accolades.

Eminem’s politically-charged cypher from 2017 was filmed inside a public parking structure in Detroit to annihilate Donald Trump.

He had a special message for Trump supporters:

“Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line—you’re either for or against. And if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this: f*** you.”

D’Elia, on the other hand, had a different target for his rendition: boxes.

Eminem could hardly contain himself after seeing his lookalike.

“This is INCREDIBLE!!! 4 a second I actually thought it WAS me!!” he tweeted.

For reference, here is Eminem’s original BET cypher from October 6, 2017.

Fans were SHOOK over his unexpected response.

Some people were unsure of Mathers’ response, but his reaction proved we had nothing to worry about. 

Nothing shady going on here. We stan!
