Florida rapper XXXTentacion is giving his full support toward Eminem’s “Walk On Water” comeback single. The hip-hop newcomer has responded to critics upset over Slim Shady going the positive route with his new tune’s message.

XXX took to Instagram Live Sunday (November 19) to vouch for Em’s woke record.

“Everybody tripping about the ‘Walk On Water’ song because he’s not saying some evil sh*t. Y’all want Eminem to say some f*cking evil sh*t and feed the kids evil sh*t. We’re not in that time of life. Be happy that he doesn’t want the kids to be on some evil pill-popping sh*t. Y’all f*cking tripping, bro.”

This weekend, Em shared a fan-made “Walk On Water” rendition.

Last night, Em performed “Walk On Water” on the “Saturday Night Live” broadcast.

Eminem delivered a nine-minute, three-song medley during his Saturday Night Live musical guest spot, performing new single “Walk on Water,” “Stan” and “Love the Way You Lie.” On all three tracks, singer Skyler Grey filled in for each track’s respective guest – Beyoncé, Dido and Rihanna – while also playing piano for “Walk on Water.” Eminem and Grey were also backed by a string section and band.

However, some media outlets went in on Em for flashing back time.

The Detroit native delivered a rendition of his latest single Walk On Water from his forthcoming album Revival, while integrating elements of past hits such as Stan and Love The Way You Lie. But the feedback wasn’t likely what Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, and his label were looking for, with many grousing that the veteran rapper had lost his touch and had to rely on past glories to win over the crowd.
