Tom McDonald, an indie rapper, came up with $100k to buy Eminem’s “Stan’s Revenge” NFT. That came with an original beat that he plans on using. That being said, fans aren’t happy about it.
McDonald put out a couple of Instagram videos to address this issue. He asked if he did invest $100,000 in his career, then why are people upset at him? Em’s fans are a bit livid and they’re calling to boycott anything he does with the beat.
One fan really got the ball rolling when they tweeted out: “If Ronald McDonald drops a new song using that Em beat on Friday can we please collectively ignore it and not give him the attention he desperately craves?”
Plenty of fans jumped on that and agreed to boycott the song whenever Tom McDonald drops it. Eminem fans are not happy and are throwing shade at McDonald for all types of reasons. It was also brought up how McDonald dissed Eminem in the past. They claim that he is still trying to gain clout off of Em.
Fans might not be happy about this, but McDonald now owns an original Eminem beat. He can do whatever he wants with it. If he wants to give it away for free, then that is perfectly within his rights as well. He can also make a song and release it on whatever platform he wishes.
