1st rapper to headline Wembley

Eminem is the first rapper to headline a show at Wembley Stadium, in London.

I heard that I wasn’t going to be approved to play in Hyde Park and it made me even more excited to play in London this summer. The easiest way to get me to do something is to tell me I can’t do it. Thanks to the Royal Parks for making it all possible for Wembley.

Rolling Stone cover

Magazine Cover

xwarl2l6xyzl2l6wEminem appears on the cover of the December 2013 issue of Rolling Stone magazine. He talks about how hip-hop saved his life and channeling the Beastie Boys.

I knew we were about to show the ‘Berzerk’ video, so I was doing what I call the Berzerk face. The whole song to me feels like vintage Beastie Boys. And you know the ‘Pass the Mic’ video where Ad-Rock is making that face, kind of not looking the camera? I was doing my own version.

The Monster

Rihanna and Eminem collaborate on The Monster from Eminem’s album, Marshall Mathers LP 2. 

Marshall Mathers LP 2, is not necessarily a sequel, as much as it is a revisitation. So there’s not gonna be, like, continuations of every old song on there or anything like that. To me, it’s more about the vibe, and it’s more about the nostalgia.

Produces Skylar Grey’s debut

Produces

Eminem executive produces Skylar Grey’s major-label debut album, Don’t Look Down.

When I was working on Recovery I was introduced to Skylar by Alex Da Kid and I was blown away with her talent as both a songwriter and vocalist. This album is really going to give her a chance to connect with the fans who probably know her music, but might not know her yet. I think they will be as impressed as I am.

Grey:

Putting out a debut album is a bit scary I want it to be just right so I took some extra time to finish it. Eminem’s increased involvement has been such a blessing; I’m getting guidance from an artist I really admire and trust. Having written many new songs, the album has become a completely different animal, hence the title change. This new single with Em, in particular, is very exciting. We have worked on so many serious songs together it’s a nice change of pace to do something fun and sarcastic.

Space Bound

The artist releases his single, Space Bound,  from the album, Recovery. Producer and songwriter Jim Jonsin produced the track. Jonsin about the artist:

He was open to ideas. He was real respectful to my craft. He let me do what I do. He asked me ideas on some of the lyrics. We had ideas for lyric changes. Certain words may or may not work on radio. We talked about that. He had a setup outside of the room to do production, but I’d rather be in the room where he was at, and he was cool with that. And I knocked out a couple of joints in there while he was in there with me. He was pretty open and he let me do my thing. He did his thing. It was a pretty good experience.
