Vivek Ramaswamy's brief foray into the rap industry, which garnered attention at the Iowa State Fair with his rendition of Eminem's "Lose Yourself," has seemingly come to an end as he has received a stop and desist letter from the original artist.

Ramaswamy has gained recognition for employing a certain song as his chosen "walk out" music throughout his campaign activities, which has resulted in the creation of several highly popular moments among the 2024 contenders thus far.

According to a letter acquired from Eminem's licensor, Broadcast Music Inc., the Ramaswamy campaign was requested to promptly cease the utilization of the artist's songs, as of August 23rd. This information was reported by TMZ. This occurred 11 days subsequent to Ramaswamy's rendition of the song in Iowa.


The notification said that BMI will see any utilization of the Eminem Works by the Vivek 2024 campaign, starting from the present day, as a significant violation of the Agreement. In response, BMI retains all rights and remedies pertaining to this breach.

As of the afternoon of Monday, the candidate for the 2024 election has not made a public statement on the letter.
