The rift between Eminem and Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy has escalated, with the rapper issuing a formal request to halt the use of his music in Ramaswamy's campaign. BMI, a major performing rights organization, recently disclosed a communication dated August 23, confirming that Eminem's music will no longer be licensed for Ramaswamy's campaign due to the artist's strong objection.

Eminem, known for endorsing Joe Biden for President, raised concerns over the use of his renowned "Eminem Works" in Ramaswamy's political activities. The official letter from BMI not only highlighted Eminem's objection but also outlined his firm demand to completely remove his works from any associations with Ramaswamy's campaign, as reported by Reuters.

Responding to Eminem's stance, Ramaswamy's campaign has promptly adhered to the artist's request. When approached by CNN, the campaign confirmed its commitment to complying with the directive by discontinuing the use of Eminem's music in its political endeavors.

Despite his lack of prior political experience, Ramaswamy has been making waves in public opinion polls. His campaign strategy focuses on portraying his political competitors as deeply entrenched within vested interests.

During a recent Republican primary debate, 38-year-old Ramaswamy faced scrutiny from seasoned opponents. To everyone's surprise, he managed to generate more attention than Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has consistently lagged behind former U.S. President Donald Trump in the Republican primary polls.

Speaking of Trump, his commanding lead in the ongoing primary race remains unchallenged. However, he chose to skip the inaugural debate and instead engaged in an interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson. This conversation was released on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, running parallel to the Republican debate.
