Did Eminem Just Make An Incorrect Reference To "The Wire"?

C'mon, Em, if you're gonna come for the king of all TV shows, you best not miss.

It's all about cheating exes and samples Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders' 1965 song, "Game of Love."

Overall, it's pretty goofy.

(Please stop reading now if you haven't gotten through the fifth season of the show and care about things being spoiled. Also, if you haven't yet watched the show, what are you waiting for??)

Em says, "She jumped off, Wee-Bey from The Wire, escape." But...as any Wire fan knows, Omar Little is the one who took the legendary jump out the window...

It's POSSIBLE that he's referring to when Wee-Bey took off to Philly toward the end of Season 1. Avon orders him to flee Baltimore and lay low from the cops for awhile, after Detective Kima Greggs was accidentally shot. So, perhaps Eminem meant his ex escaped like Wee-Bey?
