On Friday, August 31, 2018, Eminem released his 10th studio album Kamikaze.
However, sleuths on the Internet noticed something interesting. On one of the tracks, “Not a Like,” which features Royce da 5’9″, it sounds like Em is appropriating a flow that 2018 rap fans should know.
On the track, it sounds like Eminem is using the flow “cash me outside” girl Bhad Bhabie used on her breakout single “Hi Bich.”
Twitter user @peekaboorainb0w uploaded a video featuring both songs. Here is what they sound like back to back:

People are saying that Eminem’s Not Alike sounds like Bhad Bhabie’s Hi Bich…maybe but I hear more JB Blockboy’s Look Alive
