Eminem performs during the 2018 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 9, 2018 in Manchester, Tenn.

'No, this ain't a diss to the game, it's a gas to the flame.'

Eminem and Logic did not come to play.   

The dynamic duo take no shorts on their rat-a-tat collaboration "Homicide," which dropped like a lyrical monsoon on Friday morning (May 3). The breathless four-minute single finds both men showing off their motor-mouthed best, with Logic kicking things off with a barrage of insults, challenges and a Slim Shady call-out over the airy g-funk beat.   

"Bobby feelin' villanous, he killin' this/ I'm comin' for your man and his lady and even the baby/ I'm feelin' like I'm chicka-chicka-chicka Slim Shady with rabies," Young Sinatra raps over the track, which is slated to appear on his upcoming fifth album, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. "I'm foamin' at the mouth, ain't nobody takin' me out/ Every single rapper in the industry, yeah, they know what I'm about/ And I dare you to test me/ 'Cause not a single one of you motherfuckers impress me." 

By the time Eminem comes in near the two-minute mark, the stage is set for Marshall to lay waste after first shouting out one of the GOATs before taking on lyrical fakers. "Jigga-jigga-jigga-jigga-jigga like Jay-Z/ Jig is up, you fuckers who didn't write anything/ Are getting washed now, liga-liga-liga, like bathing/ Young Hova, I know hitters like Yankees/ Gun toters that pull triggers like crazy," he unloads before tossing in a reference A-Rod's baseball bona fides and revving up his meter so fast he needs to take a breather.   

And that's when comedian Chris D'Elia's legendary Eminem spoof gets cued up for a hilarious outro full of mannequins, fanagans, cabanas and papkins.
