As Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger continues to get his life back in order after being accused of sexual assault on March 3, 2010, rapper Eminem has used Ben's recent incident as a lyric in his newly-released song, "Despicable".

Everyone knows the story by now, a 20-year-old college student was attending a nightclub in Milledgeville, Ga.

Big Ben will not face charges from the Georgia police but commissioner Roger Goodell has slapped a six-game suspension on Ben for his off-the-field issues.

Eminem's newly-released song was made public after it was posted on a website that was co-founded by Paul Rosenberg—Eminem's manager.

In the song written by Eminem, he uses some explicit lyrics in reference to Roethlisberger's situation saying:

"I'd rather turn this club into a bar room brawl. Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall ."

Eminem is in the process of releasing a new album called "Recovery", but the song "Despicable" that references Roethlisberger will not be included with the album.

I think now would be a great time for Big Ben to wisen up and see the luxury he has sitting right in front of him. He needs to wake up and remember he is the starting QB for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

His college days are long gone!
