Eminem and Lil Wayne have long been both collaborators and admirers of each other's work. Overnight, Em made a tweet that reminded fans he's still a big fan of Wayne. "Bro Wayne just said “got a bunch of zeros like a bag of new funyuns!!” F*CK why didn’t I think of that????" Em's tweet reads. The lyric comes from a new song Lil Wayne appeared on alongside YG and Tyga. The track is called "Brand New" and it appears on a playlist that the two California rappers just released together.

In the replies to Eminem's tweet, there are plenty of different reactions. Some have pointed out just how much the lyric does sound like something that Em would say in a song. Others pointed out their own favorite Wayne lyrics like when the rapper said “Safe sex is great sex, better wear a latex. Cuz you don’t want that late text…that “I think I’m late” text.” One of the top replies to the post is a screenshot of the lyrics from the Young Thug song "The World." The lyrics in question feature a similar lyrical reference reading "I leave a big ol' hole right inside you, n*gga, like some Funyuns." Check out the tweet and replies in the comment section below.
