Eminem's smash hit 'Not Afraid' is an empowering anthem, so it's no wonder that the song was used in a short trailer for the Navy SEAL-themed film 'Act of Valor' which aired during Super Bowl XLVI. The film is a fictionalized account of real-life Navy SEAL operations, full of edge-of-your-seat, adrenalized action.
Lana Mania rages on! Lana Del Rey engaged in a video chat with RNB Junk while in Milan, Italy, where she offered a bit of a peak into what makes the girl born Lizzy Grant tick. One declaration she made? "I f----ing love Eminem." Why? Because he taught her that music can have intellect and be from a real place.
While implementing Auto-Tune has worked in T-Pain's favor, it has also caused the rapper to come under ridicule for digitally altering his vocals (even though he has proved he can still sing wonderfully without it). Jay-Z fired off Auto-Tune insults in his song 'D.O.A.,' and other artists have dissed it in the past.
Despite this, T-Pain is still a proponent of Auto-Tune, and he's even suggesting that Eminem start utilizing the music tool in his songs! Say what?!
As part of their annual year-end music industry report, Billboard and the Nielsen Company recently tallied up the all-time sales totals for the Soundscan era, and their updated Top 10 list includes some of the heaviest hitters in the history of rock, pop, and country -- including PopCrush favorites Mariah Carey and Eminem, who placed third and seventh, respectively.
Eminem and Lil Wayne have a friendship and history of collaboration going back many years, so it's good to see that these boys seem to be having a blast taking the stage together in this new video. In the clip, taken from the Sydney, Australia show of their recent tour, Em and Weezy absolutely destroy their song, 'No Love,' taken as the third single from Eminem's 2010 album, 'Recovery.'
Lil Wayne had a phenomenal 2011 career-wise and it looks like 2012 will be just as exciting. Weezy went on his Facebook page to announce that he will join fellow rapper Eminem on a world tour. The 'She Will' rapper stated he will be visiting Fiji, Australia and South Africa with Eminem on this supposed International trek.
The trifecta on Yelawolf's new song 'Throw It Up' is certainly one of the most unique collaborations on a rap song. You have the Alabama spitfire Yelawolf. Then there's Gangsta Boo, the foul-mouthed vixen from Three Six Mafia, and Eminem, the lyrical monster from Detroit. All together, the trio are lyrically explosive on this Will Power-produced piano-driven banger.
