After Moby made remarks criticizing the rapper Eminem in the early 2000s, things between them swiftly became problematic. Here is a glance at what happened. 

Eminem and his controversial lyrics

Eminem was renowned for penning several lyrics that were quite contentious, and Particularly Moby did not appreciate a lot of Eminem's writing at the time. That is understandable, considering that parts of the rapper's lyrics were extremely disrespectful to minorities, even though it is clear that he didn't mean them literally. Moby decided to express himself at the Grammys.
