‘Rap God’ Eminem® Just Released ANOTHER Diss, and It Was Marketing Genius.

By Tim Carthon (Blog #45: Business, Marketing, Hip-Hop)

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you probably know about the feud that happened between rapper Machine Gun Kelly®, aka MGK®, and one of the greatest rappers of all time and the highest selling rapper in history, Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem®.

The feud escalated from something said by MGK® years ago about Eminem’s daughter Hailie, compounded by subtle verbal jabs at Eminem® periodically through different music mediums.  In the hip-hop game, eventually one has to respond to those taunts.  If they don’t, they risk losing credibility, which could severely hurt their album sales, tour ticket sales, video views, streams, and more.

Eminem® responded with a surprise album called ‘Kamikaze‘ and a diss track on it called ‘Not Alike,’ which was well received by the majority of hip-hop fans.  Within a few days, MGK® released a response diss track called ‘Rap Devil,’ which was a play on Eminem’s legendary song ‘Rap God.’

The song was a great comeback to the ‘Not Alike’ diss.  Unfortunately for MGK®, his opponent was Eminem®, and Eminem’s next diss track ‘Killshot‘ was pure battle rap genius.

During this battle with the machine gun, Eminem® unexpectedly got figuratively hit in the back with several rocks.  When he turned around to see who it was, it wasn’t a “who.”  It was a “whom.”

There were several opponents, but not the ones he thought they would be.  And, true to form, he responded to them, too, and rather brilliantly.

Throughout history, the words "SCREW YOU!" have mostly been used in a negative connotation:

•  Somebody bothers you, "SCREW YOU!"

•  Someone stabs you in the back, "SCREW YOU!"

•  Somebody steals your belongings, "SCREW YOU!"

•  Somebody breaks their word to you, causing a catastrophic chain of events, "SCREW YOU!"

However, just like The Constitution of  the United States of America, the use of language is fluid.
Tim Carthon Toledo OHKirk Hawkins' Quote

Your Fork In the Road

We've all been in a situation where we contemplated making a decision that was either slightly difficult or massively life-altering in order to try and better our lives, and we wanted the council of friends and family and sometimes even colleagues, right?  And what did we find? That some of them would support you mostly, but have slight reservations. Some of them would offer criticism of your plans based on logic, which made sense in general and was constructive.  Some would hear the plan and support you completely. Then there were others, seemingly most, who would give you criticism not based on logic, but based on what we call hate.

•  Hate that you're going after your dreams.

•  Hate that you would 'throw your dream in their face' by asking their opinion.

•  But mostly hate that they didn't have the courage and mental strength to make their own life altering, positive changes and chase their own dreams.

They would spend their time feeding the fear and doubt in you in order to try and keep you on their level, keeping you living a lesser life. Those days are over. If you have no fear, if you have no doubt, then you have nothing for negative individuals to feed.

Are You Fear and Doubt's New Meal?

In our lives, when we notice that someone is spreading fear and doubt when we are attempting to do great things, a lot of times we get angry at the person.  However what we don't realize is that the person saying those things is a victim themselves. They are a victim of the negative culture that surrounds them everywhere they go; the culture of "I can't do," instead of the culture of "You can't stop me from doing!"  And, unfortunately, when they come to you they want to feed that cycle a new meal in order to keep it going. What you have to realize is that, in that situation, your job is not to say "SCREW YOU!" to the messenger but, instead, say "SCREW YOU!" to the defeatist message!  You have to let it know that:

You are NOT a new meal for fear.

You are NOT a new meal for doubt.

And what SCREW YOU!  Startup Business Tips to Destroy Doubt, Especially Inside You (Tips 1-20) does is teach you to use the words "SCREW YOU!" as a positive means to TAKE BACK YOUR POWER; starving fear and doubt while simultaneously feeding you compact, hearty 'mind meals' daily to help you build unstoppable mental strength in order to inevitably forge an amazing entrepreneurial empire!  So...

(B.) Interview Topics:

•  The '6 Degrees of Mediocrity'

We've all run into those what we call 'Negative Nancies;' people who can find nothing positive to say about anything you're trying to do with your life.  Well, when you have your own fears and doubts and the negative people are feeding them, why is that?  Why such pessimism, and how do you combat that?  In the upcoming interview, our special guest specializes in silencing those doubters, so stay tuned.

•  Entrepreneurship in the Inner Cities.

Although crime in general is down in the inner cities, so is job growth.  Job growth has slowed significantly in the past several months compared to the past half decade.  Has this slow down caused the windows of career dreams to be closed, the doors of entrepreneurial opportunities to be opened, or both?  How important is entrepreneurial opportunity?  Tim Carthon gives us his expert take on the state of business startups.

•  How to 'Douse Doubt'

Entrepreneurship is so much more accessible in this age of smart phones and iPads®.  Never before had a single individual been able to compete with multi-billion-dollar conglomerates.  Now, the Internet has virtually leveled the playing field, yet we still have so many who are holding back from taking that leap of entrepreneurial faith.  Is it lack of capital or lack of something else?  Tim Carthon explains what he sees as going on in the psyche of 'the dormant dreamers.'

(C.) Sample Interview Questions:

1.) "You're called 'The Fiery Truth-Teller.'  On the surface that seems self-explanatory, but you're known to be a man that is very careful with his wording.  So explain 'Fiery Truth-Teller' us in your own words."

2.) "So what got you interested in, as you call it, 'destroying the doubt' in people?"

3.) "I/We've heard that for more than 5 years you worked a average of 19 hours a day, literally, on your businesses?  If that's true, then we must be talking to zombie Tim Carthon because that would be insane."

4.) "So tell us about your E2 Seminar™ and your SBI Workshop™.  You have a major corporate sponsor for those, correct?"

5.) It seems like you're building a sort of 'entrepreneurial puzzle' with your Economic Enlightenment Seminar, your Startup Business Infrastructure Workshop™, and now your new book.  Is that what you're doing?

6.) "So what do you see as the biggest obstacles for an entrepreneurial dreamer to achieve their dream?"

7.) "Now you have a book that is coming/just came out called 'SCREW YOU! Startup Business Tips to Destroy Doubt, Especially Inside You.'  Now that's a bold, in-your-face title.  What made you decide to name it 'SCREW YOU!'?"

8.) "Now your book has a very interesting setup.  You don't just have a chapter number and title, but a meme of your own quotes to go with it before you even get into the chapter.  What gave you the idea for that type of unique literary formatting?  I know there's  story behind it."

9.) "Ok, the title of your first chapter is, 'Own, Or Get Owned,' and the meme under that title expands on that with something simple, but very powerful.  Explain what you mean by "Own, Or Get Owned."

10.) "So is that what this new 'SCREW YOU! Power Club' is that you've started recently?"

11.) "I/We've also heard that you live by what you call your 'life motto.'  What is that life motto and how did it come to be the inspiration for your entire existence?"
