Eminem has started yet another rap beef with, uh, Drew Brees?

The Detroit emcee threw in a harsh line about Brees as part of his appearance on Kid Cudi’s new song, “The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady,” which was released late Thursday. Eminem gives a shoutout to New Orleans rapper Lil’ Wayne, who also goes by the name Lil’ Tunechi, before lashing out at the Saints quarterback.

From Eminem’s verse:

I had hoop dreams, now I shoot threes
Got a little green, but I don’t do weed
Purp nor lean, that’s Tunechi
That’s New Orleans, f— Drew Brees

It’s unclear exactly why Eminem decided to attack Brees, but his words are likely a reaction to Brees’ feelings about NFL players kneeling in protest of racial injustice and police brutality during the national anthem.

“I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country,” Brees said in June.

Several athletes criticized Brees for not understanding the purpose of the protests, and he later apologized multiple times, saying his initial comments were “insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country.”

After President Donald Trump said Brees shouldn’t have apologized, Brees shared a response to Trump on Instagram.

“Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been,” Brees wrote. “We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities.”
