The Pittsburgh Steelers' star quarterback joins an elite roster of those with the dubious honor of being dissed in rhyme by Eminem. In this case, Big Ben's recent off-field problems are name-checked in the new Em cut "Despicable," which debuted online yesterday.
"I'd rather turn this club into a bar room brawl/Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall," Eminem raps.
The line references a March incident in which Roethlisberger allegedly sexually assaulted a 20-year-old college student in a women's restroom in a Georgia nightclub.
No one's ever accused Slim Shady of being subtle.
While prosecutors declined to charge the two-time Super Bowl champ, citing insufficient evidence, the Steelers' organization and the NFL were none too pleased. He has been suspended without pay for a half-dozen games.
Roethlisberger's attorney and Steelers representatives did not immediately return calls seeking Big Ben's appraisal of the new Eminem track.
"Despicable" is currently streaming at Rapradar.com, a site run by Em's manager. However, the rap did not make the cut for the Grammy winner's highly anticipated new album, Recovery, dropping June 22.
