In another last ditch effort to revive his career, 50 Cent performed on The Voice last night to premiere his new track with Eminem and Maroon 5′s Adam Levine.
Here are two clips from Ice-T’s upcoming documentary Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap. Eminem spits a freestyle and Kanye West talks about his writing process for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The film hits theaters June 15th.
Hits newsstands December 6th.
Eminem, what advice do you offer, if any, on being scrutinized for being a white rapper. Do you guys ever talk about race in that way?
Eminem: We make jokes about it, but I don’t think we talk about it in depth. As I was listening to his music, I am not even thinking about any of that shit. It’s just the music. That’s one of the things that’s great about it. I’m not even thinking about it when I hear the music.
Yelawolf: We do poke fun of it because it’s funny. Like, he calls me White Dog.
Oh, you called him that on the BET Awards Cypher. I didn’t realize it was an ongoing joke?
EM: Yeah, or Beige Sheep. [Laughs]
YW: Cracker Nuts. Whatever, I think it’s kinda unspoken.
EM: We deal with it enough as it is. So now, let’s make music.
YW: Let’s make great records. At the end of the day, that’s all there is to do.
The fellas from Shady Records performed the “Shady 2.0 Cypher” during the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards. Just 9 minutes of fire spitting. Yelawolf spits the first verse followed by Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz and Royce Da 5’9″ who make up the rap super group Slaughterhouse. Eminem closes out the performance with an instant-classic, mind melting, amazingly offensive, Slim Shady verse.
Official visuals to one of lamest songs of the year.
Mr. Mathers delivers the visuals to, in my opinion, one of the best tracks off his 2010 album Recovery. Pornstar Sasha Grey (yea click on that hyperlink) also stars. If any of you have ever wondered what it would look like if Eminem killed himself you can skip ahead to 3:26.
Okay I think as a commercial the spot with Eminem cruising through Detroit clearly is the better of the two. It really seems like Ford copped out on this Mustang commercial. I mean you have Jay-Z, Derek Jeter and the best city in the world and that’s the best you came up with. Regardless of Ford’s terrible AD team we all know that Detroit doesn’t hold a candle to New York.
