TWITTER – Comedian Chris D’Elia has caught Eminem’s attention after posting a YouTube video of himself imitating the Detroit-bred rap giant.
On Tuesday night (February 5), Slim Shady sent out a tweet promoting D’Elia’s video, which he apparently shot in his dingy garage.
“This is INCREDIBLE!!!” he wrote in the caption. “4 a second I actually thought it WAS me!!”

Shady’s caption is likely a tongue-in-cheek response to the YouTube description on the video.
“WOW Eminem goes SO fucking hard,” it reads. “Rare footage I just dug up from him in the cypher. Once again proving he is the GOAT! #eminem.”
This isn’t D’Elia’s first Eminem parody. Last year, he dropped another freestyle from his car, which has since racked up 3 million views.

D’Elia has already responded to Em’s tweet, writing, “You’re the man for this. And for everything before this.” He ended his sentiments with a goat emoji.
You’re the man for this. And for everything before this. 🐐 https://t.co/yoLjnmeEFC
