Eminem’s legal team have issued a cease and desist order to GOP presidential candidate, Vivek Ramaswamy.

It was for his unauthorized use of Eminem’s music on the campaign trail. On August 23 a letter bearing the BMI letterhead arrived.

In the letter, Eminem’s lawyer Pamela Williams informed Ramaswamy that he must stop performing Eminem’s musical compositions during his campaign events.

The letter particularly made mention the song “Lose Yourself”. It was stated in the letter that Eminem, objects to the use of his musical works in Ramaswamy’s campaign.

BMI was asked to remove all of Eminem’s works from the agreement. It also warns that if any performance of Eminem’s works occurs during the campaign it will be considered a material breach of the agreement.

This incident highlights a trend where politicians attempt to use popular music to connect with younger voters.

Just like how Ramaswamy had tried to showcase his candidacy by freestyling to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” during a campaign stop in Iowa.

However, Eminem caught wind of the performance and took swift action to halt any further use of his music in the campaign. Eminem’s recent involvement extends beyond legal matters.

He recently made a guest appearance on an Ez Mil track, where he showcased his lyrical prowess. In the track, he addressed various subjects, including criticisms about his position in the hip-hop hierarchy.

The track demonstrated his command of the mic and use of sharp rhymes. He also responded to challenges to his status within the genre

In light of this situation, it’s evident that Eminem‘s legal team are proactive in protecting his artistic works. They also and ensure that his music is not used for political purposes without proper authorization.

The incident also serves as a reminder that artists have the right to control how their work is used. It also shows that legal action can be taken to enforce those rights when necessary.
