Eminem's latest freestyle in the music video "Shady Cxvpher" is equal parts graphic and disturbing.

And while that may not be anything new for the controversial rapper, his newest shocking war of words takes aim at none other than Lana Del Rey.

The 42-year-old raps about punching the crooner in the face "like Ray Rice"—the NFL star who was terminated from the Baltimore Ravens after video footage showed him brutally assaulting his wife, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City elevator.

The Grammy winner is also joined by Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9", Yelawolf, and Crooked I in the music video.

Below are the lyrics where Eminem talks about the "West Coast" songstress:

But I may fight for gay rights, especially if they d--e/ Is more of a knockout than Janay Rice/ Play nice? Bitch I'll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance/ 'Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.

Del Rey has previously spoken out about being a fan of the "Rap God" musician.

During a 2012 interview with PopCrush, she told them, "I f--king love Eminem," and added that he is "the master of lyrics."

 Meanwhile, Azealia Banks rushed to Del Rey's defense on Twitter, posting several messages aimed at Eminem.

"But does Eminem know that I will personally punch him in his mouth?!" she wrote, before deleting the tweet. "Tell him to go back to his trailer park and eat his microwave hotpocket dinner."
