The New York Daily News reports The Source magazine executives David Mays and Raymond ‘Benzino’ Scott aired the Eminem track about his breakup with a black girlfriend in 1993. “Black girls only want your money cause they’re dumb chicks,” Slim Shady raps. “Never date a black girl because blacks only want your money, and that s– ain’t funny … black girls and white girls just don’t mix, because black girls are dumb and white girls are good chicks.” Mays said that Eminem must be “held accountable” for the 10-year-old track. In his statement, Eminem fired back at Benzino, Mays and The Source, saying that they have had “a vendetta against me, Shady Records and our artists for a long time. The tape they played today was something I made out of anger, stupidity and frustration when I was a teenager. I’d just broken up with my girlfriend, who was African-American, and I reacted like the angry, stupid kid I was. I hope people will take it for the foolishness that it was, not for what somebody is trying to make it into today.”
