Eminem has released quite a few horrorcore rap songs throughout his career, most notably “3 a.m.” and “Kim”. The beat, as well as Em’s tone on “Framed”, feels of his 2009 Relapse-era.
“Framed” revolves around a fictional situation where Em is detained for a murder, on the basis of how his lyrics coincidentally matches up with a murder scene, that is under investigation. Em sums it up with these lines: “But it never occurred to me I could describe a murder scene In a verse and be charged with first degree
Cause it just happened to match up perfectly.”
In an interview with Shade 45 on December 15th, Em commented on how a beat affects the content of a song: “‘Framed’ you needed to rap some evil, like serial killer kind of s**t to me, like thats.. The beat was so evil, I just had to say evil s**t, like f**ked up s**t. Thats one of my favorite beats ever.”
The song is produced by FredWreck and Eminem and it samples “Pilgrim” by C&K Vocal. Em makes name-dropping throughout the song and it includes Ivanka Trump! Yes you heard it, the daughter of the president of the United States. He raps: “Donald Duck’s on as the Tonka Truck in the yard but dog, how the f**k is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car? Must go above and beyond, ’cause it’s incumbent upon me, ’cause I feel somewhat responsible for the dumb little blonde.”
Considering this are all references from the 80’s, Ivanka Trump was born in 1981, so by the late 80’s she was a kid, he mentions Donald Duck and the Tonka Truck in the previous line as a kids references but Donald Duck also because of Donald Trump. The dumb little blonde girl he feels responsible for is Ivanka Trump.
