There's no doubt that Eminem is a loyal Detroit Lions fan — and he's ready for their comeback next season after losing the NFC Championship game to the San Francisco 49ers.

After the tough loss on Sunday, Eminem, 51, still remained hopeful, and hilariously revealed that his diss track for coach Ben Johnson won't see the light of day after a great season.

“Guess I should stop recording this diss track..!! Lol!!,” Eminem wrote on X (formerly Twitter) of Johnson, after rumors floated that he turned down offers for head coaching positions in Seattle and Washington.

The "Mockingbird" rapper added, "@ Ben Johnson Thank you for staying!!! We can’t break this team up ESPECIALLY since I’M on it!!! Coach Campbell we love you bro!!! Let’s run it back next year!!…I’m READY!!!! I promise you I WILL get us to the super bowl!!!"

After the game, the "Lose Yourself" rapper wrote on X, "So proud of the @lions. Thanks 4 an amazing season!!!! We'll b back!!!"

Eminem supported his team during Sunday's conference final and at multiple Lions games this season as Detroit enjoyed a successful season – their first in decades. Sunday's appearance in the NFC Championship game was Detroit's first since Jan. 1992.

The matchup between the Lions, led by quarterback Jared Goff, and the 49ers came down to the final moments of the game at Levi's Stadium in San Francisco. Initially, it looked as though the Lions had the win, but the 49ers came roaring back in the second half with 27 unanswered points, bringing the score to 34-24 with just over two minutes remaining.

The Lions got in another touchdown, but it wasn't enough, and the 49ers pulled off the comeback win 34-31. Next, San Francisco will take on the Kansas City Chiefs at the Super Bowl on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas.

Eminem's daughter, Hailie Jade Scott, also shared on social media that she was looking forward to next season.

On TikTok, she walked viewers through the process of creating her "D.I.Y." Lions jacket, sharing how she cut up a flag and sewed each piece onto the jacket.

One week before the rapper attended the NFC Championship, Eminem jokingly called out Lions head coach Dan Campbell and asked him to put him in the game.

"Yo, Dan, I’m reporting. I’m going to report. Third quarter," the rapper said in a video shared on Instagram. "I’m reporting, offensive line, eligible receiver. I’ll be the quarterback, the entire line, [the] offensive line. And the receiver, I will throw it to myself and score a touchdown. In the third quarter. Just give me a uniform. Or at least just a helmet."

He added, "I'm gonna be there that night, I will suit up, and I will score us the winning touchdown."
