Eminem did a rare interview this morning (April 23rd) with Angela Yee on her "Lip Service" show, of course on Eminem's Shade45 Sirius Satellite Radio channel. During the interview, Eminem gave many details his new "Relapse" album, his return to movies, his next project and more! Click HERE.
Em also stated in the interview that he would work with Lil Wayne and that he digs T.I. and Kanye. His new song 3am is supposed to be a lot darker than his first single. The video for 3am is done and should be out soon, if it's not already on the net somewhere. The video was shot in D Troit.
Don't forget also on the slate soon to be released is Lil Wayne's rebirth album. Supposed to be his Rock joint. Wayne said that the album has a lot more energy than we are used to hearing from him.
"The influence of the new album is mainly rock, but again, it's me. So I guess, I guess I'll call it my rock. Yeah."
Rick Ross continues his beef with not only 50 Cent but the entire G-Unit by making comments about their label (Interscope) and even saying that Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo were dropped. "You asking me do I feel responsible that Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo is dropped from Interscope," Ross said in an interview. "I'm not gonna take full responsibility but I just believe Jimmy Iovine and all the geniuses at Interscope, I think they understand that their career with music is over. As well as 50 Cent's...Everybody telling me I did it, thanks. But honestly, they did it, they did it to themselves...It's sad when you get dropped and you working with [Dr.] Dre...I'ma pull up their BDS, I know their last album, T.O.S. flopped, I think it sold 15,000 copies its first week or something close to that, I'ma pull up their BDS and make an offer...I might get 'em a situation on Haitian Mafia...Interscope won't sign you, Def Jam won't sign you. Pretty much, go to E1 [formely Koch Records] if we offer you something."

A FULL EXPLANATION OF WHY MY POSTS HAVE BEEN LACKING COMING THIS SUNDAY.
I've been busy as all hell but don't worry I promise I have something to show for it.
"Coming Soon - Monster Entertainment, a management and promotions company"
NEW YORK – "South Park" may have accomplished the impossible — getting Kanye West to check his ego.
The Comedy Central show skewered the famously self-important rapper on its show Wednesday night, painting him as a narcissistic figure so out of touch with reality he couldn't even take a (very politically incorrect) joke.
West's love of himself and his work has been almost as integral to his image as his music: Just last year, he told The Associated Press that he was the "voice of this generation." Also recently, he was quoted as saying his greatest regret was not being able to see himself perform live.
Yet, on his blog Thursday, West appeared chastened, and ready to turn over a new leaf.
In typical all-caps mode, he wrote: "SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT'S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER."
West said that he started stroking his ego long ago to build up his self esteem — but he now realizes he needs to "GET PAST MYSELF."
In the self-reflective post, he said that people won't take him seriously if he keeps it up (perhaps referring to his well-documented meltdowns at awards shows when he didn't win what he expected).
"I JUST WANT TO BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM," he said.
And perhaps to show that he's really serious about making that change, he provided a link to one of the most biting moments from the "South Park" show, and thanked the writers as well.
