What’s going on? First Nicki Minaj drops a Nazi-themed lyric video and now Eminem has been accused of threatening to assault Lana Del Rey in a freestyle rap. “I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice like Ray Rice in broad daylight,” the MC is quoted as saying. (He is, of course, referencing the disgraced football star’s domestic violence scandal).

Eminem’s alleged rhyme has been picked by multiple Lana Del Rey fansites but none of them have been able to cite when or where the performance took place. However, there is a Vine of the rap and it’s pretty alarming. The “Monster” hitmaker has a long history of dissing female artists but threatening an act of violence crosses the line. Check out the recording after the jump.

EDIT: Azealia Banks has given her two cents on the situation:
