The big summer sports stories involving Ray Rice, Tony Stewart and LeBron James aren’t surrendering their hold on pop culture.

In a new cypher to support “Shady XV,” Eminem manages to touch on all three in his lyrics (see the full NSFW video here). James gets off easiest of the three after leaving the Miami Heat to join his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers.

I need a towel, sweat leaks from my brow, it’s burning my eyes, my cerebral is foul cuz … I’m thinking about should be illegal. I need my headband like the guy who left Cleveland Ohio and went to South Beach with his talents, screamed [expletive] you on the way out and winked with a smile.

He uses the incident in which Rice knocked out his then-fiancee Janay Rice in an elevator to take a verbal swing at Lana Del Rey:

But I may fight for gay rights specially if they …, its more of a knockout than Janay Rice, play nice … I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice like Ray Rice in broad daylight, in plain sight of the elevator surveillance till the head is banged on the railing and then celebrate with the Ravens.

And then there’s Stewart, who was cleared of wrongdoing after he drove over a driver who was walking on the track during a race:

Been known to lose it though, so if I overdo it, you drove me too it. When I step into the vocal booth like I’m supposed to do I’ma murder you on a … track like Tony Stewart.
