Benzino has fired back at Eminem following the release of his video for “Doomsday Pt. 2.”

Shortly after Em belatedly released the visuals for the track, which reignited his war of words with the former editor of The Source magazine, Benzino hit back on 

Commenting on a clip of the video, he mocked Slim Shady’s appearance by writing: “He finally responded‼️ [crying face emojis] can someone tell me what in the plastic surgery happened to his face?? He looks like a waking corpse. Nah…this ain’t it. RAP ELVIS DESTROYED.”

Benzino then commented on the video’s various cameos from fellow Detroit natives Big Sean and BabyTron, as well as Denzel Curry, JID, Swae Lee, Cordae and Teezo Touchdown.

He wrote: “If it took me for Skittles to team up with and put on them dope young artists in Detroit then I did well.”

Released in January from the Lyrical Lemonade compilation All Is Yellow, “Doomsday Pt. 2” resurrected the two decades-plus feud between Eminem and Benzino, with Slim Shady taking numerous shots at the Hip Hop entrepreneur.

Over a sample of his classic hit “Role Model,” he rapped: “Now I got a riddle, one condition, you mustn’t laugh/ What is the opposite of Benzino? A giraffe/ ‘Go at his neck,’ how the fuck is that?/ How can I go at somethin’ he doesn’t have?

“Arm so short he can’t even touch his hands/ When they’re up above his head doin’ jumpin’ jacks/ Sorry, I don’t mean to upset you, Ben/ When I talk about all the debt you in/ I hear that you been creepin’ on the low/ In them cheap hotels, that they catch you in.”

He continued: “Jesus Christ, dawg, when you said two-ten/ Never guessed you meant at the Red Roof Inn/ In a room with one single bed, two men/ Shady, man, you can’t–, yes, you can.

“Well, I guess then I regret to inform you, hate to spoil the day/ But this doesn’t bring me no joy to say/ Guess that Coi Leray feat is in the toilet, ay?”

Benzino subsequently hit back with two diss songs of his own — “Vulturius” and “Rap Elvis” — before the feud took a bizarre turn when he appeared on Drink Champs in February.

After becoming intoxicated on the show, the former Made Men rapper began crying and appeared to extend an olive branch to Eminem.

He said: “I don’t have nothing against Eminem. He can rap but I care about us more. I don’t want to talk about it no more. My daughter came to industry figuring ‘I gotta be cool with Eminem because everybody is against my dad.’”

He continued: “I don’t hate Eminem. I don’t know him to hate him. I don’t hate white people tired of this shit, man. It’s just too much. I don’t want to be the bad guy. […] Eminem ain’t no bad person. He belongs in Hip Hop. It’s a big racist problem in America right now and Eminem could probably stop half of it.”

Since that podcast appearance, though, Benzino has continued to take shots at Em.

What number are the letters 2&10? And Just because my last name Redhead doesn’t mean I go with, just a guy, to the Red Roof Inn!
