10 Times Eminem’s Lyrics Got Him Into Trouble

9. Almost Being Banned From Canada…

Given the lyrics of the song include lines such as “You think I won’t choke no whore / ‘Til the vocal cords don’t work in her throat no more?”, it’s understandable to understand where Flaherty came from.

The ban didn’t last and the rapper performed at the concert without issue.
