Rapper Eminem makes Roethlisberger reference in song

Just as the Ben Roethlisberger story is simmering down, rapper Eminem is stirring it up.

In a new song called "Despicable," Eminem includes the line, "[Expletive that], I'd rather turn this club into a bar room brawl. Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall."

It's a reference, of course, to the accusation by a 20-year-old college student that the Steelers' quarterback sexually assaulted her in a Milledgeville, Ga., nightclub. No charges were filed, but Roethlisberger has been suspended for six games by the NFL.

"Despicable" is an Eminem freestyle, which will not appear on his forthcoming album "Recovery." The rapper has sold 78 million albums worldwide, and his last record, "Relapse," entered the charts at No. 1 and was the top-selling rap album of 2009. For more, go to Scott Mervis' pop music blog.
