    Eminem Can't Be Killed in Music Video Released With New Album 'Music to Be Murdered By: Side B'

    [embedded content]

    Following rumors of the surprise album that circulated last week, the Detroit emcee has debuted the sequel to his January 2020 set with 16 additional tracks.

    Dec 18, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Eminem is capping off 2020 with a new album. The 15-time Grammy Award winner has surprised fans by dropping new music through “Music to Be Murdered By: Side B”, a follow-up to his eleventh studio album “Music to Be Murdered By” that was released earlier this year in January.
    Hitting streaming service at midnight Friday, December 18, the deluxe edition of his most recent LP contains 16 additional tracks. It features Dr. Dre, who appears on “Guns Blazing”, with Ty Dolla $ign, DJ Premier, Skylar Grey and more also making appearance on other tracks off the album. Dre is also reportedly responsible for co-producing “Discombobulated”.
    Along with the surprise album, Em has released a music video for one of the new tracks, “Gnat”. The Cole Bennett-directed video has the Detroit emcee playing different characters in different costumes, including one that has him in a hazmat suit.
    A real take on the global COVID-19 pandemic, one scene has him in daily outfit while wandering around the street and wearing a face mask, before he’s getting shot. He, however, survives as he’s seen waking up in a corridor despite still sporting a bullet wound on the chest.

    On another song titled “Zeus”, Em offers an apology to Rihanna, whom he shaded in a song that leaked in 2019 featuring lyrics about him “siding with Chris Brown” despite having collaborated with the Barbadian songstress in 2010’s hit “Love the Way You Lie” and its sequel “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)”. “And wholeheartedly apologies Rihanna for that song that leaked/ I’m sorry, Rih, it wasn’t meant to cause you grief/ But regardless it was wrong of me,” he raps on “Zeus”.
    Em marked the album release with a post on his Instagram page. “Uncle Alfred heard you screaming for more… enjoy Side B,” he wrote along with the album cover art.

    Prior to this, the 48-year-old star never addressed rumors about the deluxe edition. Fans, however, got their hope high after Dem Jointz fueled the rumors by revealing the “Music to Be Murdered By: Side B” cover art among several projects he said he worked on this year. “Even Thru The S**t-Storm, Thank God For Another Successful Year!! . . . #ProducedWrittenMixedByDemJointz,” he captioned it.

    Eminem Backs Joe Biden by Authorizing 'Lose Yourself' Use in New Campaign Ad

    WENN/Sheri Determan

    Inspired by the lyrics of the rapper’s classic ‘8 Mile’ track, the 45-second spot titled ‘One Opportunity’ features footage from the presidential hopeful’s rally in his native Michigan.

    Nov 3, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Rapper Eminem has given U.S. presidential hopeful Joe Biden permission to use his classic “8 Mile” track for a new campaign ad, which debuted on Monday (November 02), on the eve of the general election.
    The 45-second spot’s title, “One Opportunity”, is inspired by the lyrics of “Lose Yourself” and features images of people voting, as well as footage from Biden’s rally in Eminem’s native Michigan.
    Eminem has shared the new ad on Twitter, adding the caption, “One opportunity… #Vote.”

    It’s a big step for the rap star, who successfully sued New Zealand’s National Party campaign managers for sampling the song for a political ad back in 2014.
    Eminem has always been vocal about his opposition to Biden’s opponent, current U.S. leader Donald Trump – he criticized the businessman-turned-politician in his song “Campaign Speech” and attacked Trump in a freestyle during his song “Framed” at the BET Awards.
    Eminem isn’t the only artist who has given his permission for his song to be used for political purpose. Taylor Swift recently let U.S. politician Eric Swalwell use her music in a new ad aimed at boosting voter turn-out ahead of the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
    The pop star’s track “Only the Young” features in the latest ad for the Democrat’s Remedy PAC organization, which also features a quote about voter suppression from vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. The video includes a montage of powerful social and political scenes that took place within the past four years under current President Trump’s first term.

    Jul 31, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Rihanna has reassured her impatient fans they won’t be disappointed when she finally gets around to releasing new music, promising it will be “worth the wait.”
    The 32-year-old singer hasn’t dropped an album since “Anti” was released back in 2016. And while her followers are desperate to hear what Rihanna’s been working on, she’s been concentrating on the launch of her Fenty Skin skincare line. But Rihanna told Entertainment Tonight in a video chat that she’s determined to make sure she puts out something she’s proud of.
    “I am always working on music,” she said. “I am always working on music and when I am ready to put it out in the way that I feel fit, it’s gonna come out. And you’re not going to be disappointed when it happens. It’s going to be worth it.”
    “I’m not just gonna put it out just because people are waiting. It’s taken this long, I’m gonna make it worth it.”
    Rihanna has a huge string of hits under her belts, including “Umbrella”, “Diamonds”, “We Found Love”, and her debut single “Pon de Replay”. And asked what she thinks of when reflecting on her career, she smiled, “I’m 10 years older, I’m 15 years older. I thought that was just a few years ago, now it’s like a decade plus. THAT is what I think about!”
    “But I’m also really grateful to still be here and being able to expand into other ventures. I’m grateful. It’s been fun and I can’t even complain.”

  • Report: Rihanna and Eminem's New Collaboration On the Way

    WENN/Instagram

    Rumors of the ‘Love the Way You Lie’ collaborators’ reunion make their way around the Internet after Em’s marketing firm posts an alleged teaser on its Instagram Stories.
    Jul 28, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Rihanna’s new album may still have a long way to come, but it doesn’t mean she’s not working hard in the studio. Words are the Barbadian songstress has been re-teaming up with Eminem to cook up a new song.
    Words of the “Love the Way You Lie” collaborators’ reunion started to make their way around the Internet after Burn It Down Group, the company who reportedly handles marketing for Shady Records, appeared to tease the two stars’ new joint project. According to Pop Crave, on Saturday, July 25, the firm posted an image of Eminem’s trademark backward “E” logo woven into Rihanna’s “R” logo that was used on her “Rated R” album cover. The picture is accompanied by two sets of staring eyes.

    Marketing firm posted a teaser of Rihanna and Eminem’s alleged new collaboration.
    While the news has not been confirmed, fans can’t help feeling excited over the possibility of getting a new Rihanna song. “Ofc its with her that ‘R’ stands for rihanna omg the collaps thats about to be served I can’t wait,” one reacted to the news. Another wrote, “Love the way you lie pt 3 is coming we won.” A third user added, “omg b***h we get more rihanna.”
    Some others, however, were not convinced that the image hinted at Rihanna and Eminem’s new music collaboration. Referring to her recently announced makeup line, one jokingly speculated, “it’s probably a make up line for MEN.”
    There were also others who think that Rih would be doing “charity” in favor of Em with their rumored collaboration, considering that his latest album “Music to Be Murdered By” flopped.
    Rihanna and Eminem first teamed up for 2010’s “Love the Way You Lie” that became a worldwide success, reaching number one in more than twenty countries globally. They later reunited for its follow-up “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)”, 2012’s “Numb” and 2013’s “The Monster”.

(Yeah)/ Bunch of half wits up in office/ Half of us walkin’ around like a zombie apocalypse/ Other half are just pissed off and don’t wanna wear a mask/ And they’re just scoffin’/ And that’s how you end catchin’ the sick off ’em/ I just used the same basket as you shoppin’/ Now I’m in a f***in’ casket from you coffin’.”

  • Eminem Issues Statement About 'Unnecessary' Revolt Diss in Leaked Song

    Instagram

    Joe Budden also addresses the matter in the latest episode of his ‘Joe Budden Podcast’, saying, ‘But this is an old verse. Mal is right, you don’t get offended by old verses.’
    Jun 25, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Eminem recently sparked feud with Sean “P. Diddy” Combs’ Revolt TV and Joe Budden after his 2019 song titled “Bang” emerged online. The song saw Slim Shady slamming both Revolt and Joe, who serves as the host of “State of the Culture”, prompting Revolt to hit back at Eminem. Now, Em took to his Twitter account to issue a statement regarding the matter.
    “I agree with Revolt… this is an unnecessary distraction,” he wrote in the statement on Wednesday, June 24. “I never meant for the verse to be heard, I was heated in the moment and thought better of it and decided to pull it back.”
    “Stuff that I never intended to release continues to leak from the huge WeTransfer hack. I don’t have any issues with Revolt,” he went on saying. “I’d actually welcome the opportunity to work with them on some positive things and turn this in a different direction.”

    In the said track, Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, could be heard rapping, “Shout to Puffy Combs/ but f**k Revolt/ Y’all are like a f***ed up remote/ Now I get it why our button’s broke/ ‘Cause you pressing him but do nothing though, especially when it comes to punches throne.”
    Em later touched on Joe’s infamous incident with Migos rapper’s Quavo, Offset and Takeoff at the 2017 BET Awards. “Tell this journalist stick to the stuff he knows, like always running, from Migos,” he continued to rap.
    In response to the diss, Revolt fired back at the Detroit rapper. “F**k you too Eminem,” it said, before writing in the caption, “Back to our regularly scheduled program.”
    Joe also addressed the matter in the latest episode of his “Joe Budden Podcast”. “Listen, I was one hundred percent prepared to come on here and scream on Paul [Rosenberg] cause I thought Paul leaked this,” he said.
    “I was prepared to come on here and tell Paul and Em to read the room. Now’s not the time for all of that. But this is an old verse. Mal is right, you don’t get offended by old verses. And two, I don’t think anybody’s on that right now. I don’t think Em is on that, I don’t think my Slaughterhouse brothers is on that. I don’t think anybody is on that side right this second. I feel safe speaking on that, I won’t tell you why I feel safe speaking on that but I do,” he continued.
    “That’s not really where the focus is right now,” Joe added. “That’s not where our concern is, or where it should be. It’s way to much important s**t going on right now. Even if I was going to come in here and start screaming, I’m not rapping so that’s not fun. Nothing about this is fun. It’s more power in the unity.”
    “I’m going to assume we were taking some baby steps to try to reach unity with some of the behind-the-scenes conversations that were taking place. So, nah, this is not thirty-five year old Joe that’s going to come and fuck everything up cause I’m mad about some old s**t. I’m going to be mature — I’m forty. Great verse!” he concluded.

    May 25, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Rap icon Eminem is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his hit album “The Marshall Mathers LP” with an online listening party.
    The star, real name Marshall Mathers, will host the event on music streaming service Spotify on Wednesday, May 27, at a time yet to be determined, when fans can join him in a live question and answer session, and listen to the 2000 release, which featured the singles “Stan”, “The Real Slim Shady” and “The Way I Am”.
    Eminem is also unveiling a new line of merchandise to mark the occasion, including a limited edition “Stan Varsity” hoodie, while other celebrations are also reportedly in the works to entertain fans in coronavirus isolation.
    He has invited U.S.-based devotees to keep up to date on developments by texting a special number (313-666-7440) or checking out his website (https://www.eminem.com/) for more details.
    “The Marshall Mathers LP” cemented Eminem’s place in hip-hop history, debuting at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and shifting 1.78 million units in its first week to become the fastest-selling album in chart history. It later lost the title in 2015 to Adele’s “25”.
    Eminem, 47, previously admitted the project will always overshadow his future endeavors, because it was some of his best work ever.
    “I am forever chasing The Marshall Mathers LP,” he confessed in a 2017 interview with Vulture. “That was the height of what I could do. I just don’t have the rage I did back then.”
