Nick Cannon has reportedly been playing his diss track against Eminem over and over again, despite the song receiving widespread ridicule.

While filming new episodes of his MTV show Wild ‘n Out in Atlanta this week, Cannon is said to have commandeered a DJ booth to put “The Invitation” on repeat.

Sources speaking with TMZ say the former Nickelodeon star played the song “at least 20 times.”

“We’re told Nick not only played the track on repeat for his VIP guests, staff and cast members, he also played it over the speakers for the audience on the main stage,” TMZ writes.

“The Invitation” is one of two diss tracks dropped by Cannon within a week; the other is the song “Pray For Him.”

Staff on Wild ‘n Out believe Cannon’s goal is to get Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, to respond with an appearance on his show.

Cannon and Eminem’s beef dates all the way back to 2009. In his song “Bagpipes from Baghdad,” Eminem took aim at Cannon and his then-wife Mariah Carey. The song centers around Eminem’s alleged relationship with Carey, which the singer denies to this day.

Carey followed up that same year with the song “Obsessed,” to which Eminem responded back with “The Warning.”

Cannon also shot back in 2010 with “I’m A Slick Rick,” although the song was largely ridiculed–similar to how his latest diss tracks were received.

In 2013, Carey threw shade at Eminem while appearing as a guest on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. Host Andy Cohen asked Carey to say three nice things about Eminem.

“They come in a package that you can carry wherever you go. People love them around the world, and they’re tasty. You can have peanut or the regular kind,” Carey responded.

The current beef between Slim Shady and Cannon was reignited this month after Eminem referred to Carey as a “nut job” on the track “Lord Above.”

It remains unclear as to whether Eminem will respond to Cannon with a new song anytime soon. But many online have argued that Eminem doesn’t even need to.
