Lighters: Bruno Mars, Eminem, Royce da 5’9 and Pacquiao

Blog Experiences

I first posted something related to Bruno Mars as part of my Poreotics post last April 2011.

Recently I heard a good song in the radio and I think it was Bruno Mars singing in the chorus and Eminem rapping. So I searched in the net and found out that the song title is Lighters, from the Bad Meets Evil (the duo of Eminem and Royce da 5’9) and the song really featured Bruno Mars.

Bruno Mars + Eminem seems to be a good combo so I also looked for the video via youtube. I liked Bruno’s piano and the lanterns/lighter at the end part of the video so I am sharing the video here at

So where’s the Manny Pacquiao connection?

I listened closely to the song and it seems Pacman was mentioned. See video from 3:14 to 3:25

The Eminem Bruno Mars Lighters lyrics go like

Every hour, happy hour now
Life is wacky now
Used to have to eat the cat to get the p**sy
Now I’m just the cats meow, aw
Classic now always down for the catch weight like Pacquiao

Wow! Pacqui-ao with a twang!

But listening to the song several times more gave me another question: Is this Pacquiao reference from Royce 5’9 a praise for Pacman? Or some cheap trash-talk directed to Pacquiao?

Interesting 🙂
