"Lord Above" is a song by American rappers Fat Joe and Dre, released from their collaborative studio album Family Ties on December 6, 2019 via RNG (Rap's New Generation) and EMPIRE. Produced by 808 Ray, Cool & Dre, it features Mary J. Blige singing chorus and outro and Eminem rapping the third verse. Despite never being released as a single, the song has managed to peak at number 97 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 44 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in the US.

To promote the album, Fat Joe billed his Eminem collaboration as "the most disrespectful song".[1] In his verse, Eminem disses Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, rapping: "I know me and Mariah didn't end on a high note / But that other dude's whipped, that pussy got him neutered / Tried to tell him this chick's a nut job before he got his jewels clipped / Almost got my caboose kicked, fool, quit, you not gon' do shit / I let her chop my balls off, too 'fore I lost to you, Nick".[2][3] On December 9, 2019, Cannon responded with a diss track "The Invitation"[4] featuring Hitman Holla, Charlie Clips and Prince Eazy, whom Cannon referred to as "The Black Squad" and Suge Knight.[5] After Eminem responded to Cannon with two tweets, Cannon released a second diss track the next day featuring the same rappers as well as Conceited titled "Pray For Him".[6]
