We saw Rick Ross, Janelle Monae and Diddy cover the first part of the split and now the second part features none other than Eminem and Dr. Dre. It makes me sad to think about the amazing music these two created together and then how things are present day. R.I.P. Slim Shady. Check out a few of the excerpts from Marshall’s interview after the jump. Read More
Eminem covers the latest issue of Billboard with his usual mean mugging look. I feel like he smiled a lot more back in the day when he wasn’t in “recovery” mode and Slim Shady was still a part of him. See what recovery does? It makes you dull and do collaborations with Pink. I’m semi kidding of course. Recovery is in stores now and according to the numbers, is projected to sell over 650,000 copies in the first week. Head over to Billboard to read the full cover story. What are your thoughts on the album? Spotted at RR.
Say what you want, these two when at the top of their games are no doubt heavyweights and on a level most do not see. I must say, they do indeed give us some heat with this record that is to be featured on Em’s Recovery. The track samples Haddaway’s What Is Love. Yes, the Night At The Roxbury song, but please, no horizontal head banging. And even Em is wondering where Kanye is when you need him. I have to give the edge to Eminem over Weezy right here. What’d you think?
Em’s Not Afraid is the premiere single from his upcoming project Recovery, which is set to release June 22nd. He kicked off the highly anticipated work by dropping this single that definitely warranted tons, tons, and did I say tons, of radio play. Possibly why I don’t particularly care for it much any more. Nonetheless, it is a solid record, which hopefully sets precedent for the entire album. Enjoy the visual aesthetics.
Despite my extreme distaste for any music Eminem has put out after the Marshall Mathers LP, he still remains one of the top artists in the game and a lot of people still enjoy the music he makes. He covers the upcoming issue of RESPECT. which should be a classic issue considering he hasn’t really sat down for an interview with a publication in awhile. Pick it up from newsstands starting June 9th. I miss Slim Shady – that’s all.
Still somewhat fresh out of the inside, Tip in my opinion, has had a bit of trouble reclaiming his spot amidst hip hop’s elite. Who are we to rush though, right? Dude’s been through a bit in the last year and counting. Nonetheless, a collaborative track with reborn emcee Eminem could catapult T.I. right back on the map. Listen as he sits down with MTV News to discuss the upcoming project with Em and a few more issues.
Now don’t go getting all excited yet, they’ve only announced a couple of dates and tickets will most likely be extremely hard to get. Similar to you trying to get with Nicki Minaj in the club – it’s just not going to happen. Last night during the Yankees v. Tigers game, Eminem and Jay announced they would be embarking on a two tour. September 2nd at Comercia Park in Detroit Jay will open up for Eminem and then on September 13th, Eminem will be opening up for Jay at Yankee Stadium. Good luck to everyone who will be trying to get tickets!
Em draws production from prominent producer Boi-1da for his first single off his upcoming Recovery album. Personally I think the song is just solid, but I feel his backing is so crazy for obvious reasons anything he drops is labeled a classic. I love Em’s music, but eh, don’t crucify me. Recovery is slated for a June 22nd release.
