Eminem is out with the video to his new single ‘3AM’, the second release off the Detroit rapper’s sixth studio album ‘Relapse’, out May 15th on Aftermath. Watch the Syndrome directed video via YouTube below.
Asher Roth talked with ThisIs50 about his new album ‘Asleep in the Bread Aisle’, the story behind the title, getting it out on the 4/20 holiday, his hit ‘I Love College’, Eminem comparisons, and the biggest misconception about him. He’s also seen performing and hanging out with Cee-Lo and Beanie Sigel.
“It’s really hard to comment on someone who I don’t know personally,” Asher said of the Slim Shady tag. “For me, I want that same respect. I want the same respect in the sense of people shouldn’t comment on someone they don’t know anything about. So there’s a lot of speculation on who I am as a person, and a lot of preconceived notions on he’s just a wannabe this or that. And they’re basing that on one interview or ‘I Love College’. There’s just so much more going on.” He thinks it will be a matter of time before his sound, which isn’t as dark as Eminem, when people will understand him as an artist.

Bill O’Reilly went after Eminem Wednesday night on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ following the release of Slim’s ‘We Made You’ video, which pokes fun at several celebrities, including Alaska governor Sarah Palin. “Few Americans take the vile rapper Eminem seriously,” O’Reilly said. “He represents the lowest form of entertainment in this country and is a publicity hound to boot.”
“Eminem is obviously on an obscene rant about Sarah Palin, it’s totally obscene, totally inappropriate,” O’Reilly said. “All I want to do is repeat that Eminem means nothing. The video means nothing. It’s played for kids that are confused.”
The segment, featuring a laughable “viewer warning” before playing the Eminem video and talking with conservative radio talk show host Tammy Bruce, has since been removed at FoxNews.com.

Eminem inducted Run-DMC into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday (April 4) in Cleveland, Ohio as Rev. Run and Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels looked on before taking the stage. “I remember being in ninth grade when Raising Hell came out,” he recalled, “Two years later, I still remember being in ninth grade when Tougher Than Leather came out. I had skipped school, if you can believe that, to go buy Tougher Than Leather on cassette the day it came out. As soon as I heard ‘Run’s House,’ man, it was pretty much a rap for me. Marshall Mathers became Eminem. It was the first time Run-DMC had changed my life, but it wouldn’t be the last. Two turntables and a microphone.” Unfortunately the video ends without comments from Run or DMC and nothing appears to have been posted yet at YouTube. Watch Em’s remarks below.
Rav Singh of News of the World hears Eminem is set to release his comeback album ‘King Mathers’ by year’s end. “It’s exciting times and, of course, there’s massive expectation surrounding this new record,” a source told th British tabloid. “But the fans need not worry about its quality. Most of the music’s being mastered at the moment. There’s a real belief the album will go stellar.” The full story at newsoftheworld.co.uk has since been removed.
50 Cent filled ITN in on what he’s been up to at the UK premiere of his new film ‘Righteous Kill’, adding that the public will be impressed with his friend Eminem’s comeback album. “They’re not going to be excited until they hear the first single,” 50 said about Slim’s return. “And then they’re gonna go right back to lovin’ him all over again. We’ve seen this movie before, it’s a rerun. They’re gonna love Em like the first time he came and the music is – he’s in a real great space creatively.” Watch the red carpet interview via YouTube below.
In an interview with Hardknock.tv, T.I. talked about who is featured on album, his relationship with Eminem, Young Jeezy, David Banner, Jay-Z, Diddy, and more. “Em, I can say now is a personal partner of mine,” T.I. stated. “We speak on a personal level about life, growth, expanding, about the pitfalls of the fame and the glamor. We just compare notes kinda. We’re kinda like two professors when they’re on their work break and they’re just comparing notes and they both had an admiration and respect for the other’s craft.” Watch the clip below.

When people start talking about the greatest emcees of all-time the usual cast of characters is brought up. KRS-One, Rakim, 2Pac, Biggie, etc., all get mentioned. Older fans, like myself, will bring up Slick Rick and The Fresh Prince, while younger fans will point to Jay-Z, Eminem and Nas. There’s one artist that seemingly NEVER gets mentioned, though, and it’s someone who has long deserved to be in the discussion… Read the full story at: adambernard.blogspot.com.
