Eminem season is slowing approaching. Slim Shady is currently prepping his new single which reportedly samples a hook from British singer Jamies N Commons. Remember what this similar situation did for Dido’s career after the release of Stan? Only time will tell if Em can do the same for Jamie.
“The song features the hook of one of Jamie’s tracks and Eminem rapping the verses.
“It’s scheduled to be Eminem’s big single this summer when he headlines the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK.
“Jamie already has a good buzz around him in the music industry but now Eminem’s endorsement of him is a huge deal.
While out in the UK promoting his SMS headphones, 50 Cent revealed to Digital Spy that his first Street King Immortal single will feature Alicia Keys and Dr. Dre, and by the sounds of it, should be released today.
This was scheduled for a June 14th release but you all know how the internet works -_- This is confirmed on his Finally Famous: The Album out June 28th. Man I’m pretty hyped for that one. Produced by No I.D.
Lil Wayne sat down with Lil Wayne to talk about his new single How To Love. Damn I didn’t think this was gonna be an album cut but I guess it is. He talks about being classified as a musician instead of a rapper.
“I can tell you that I’ve never had a single like it, and it’s an amazing song. It’s an amazing song.
You know that if you come to a Lil Wayne show two years from now, you already know that ‘I’m gonna get rap — some of the best rap — I’m gonna get some guitar, I’m gonna get some singin’, I’m gonna get some dancin’, I’m gonna get some old-school music, and I’m goin’ to a show tonight.’ And I think that’s where this song is directing me to.
I am a musician, and a few years back, I noticed that I wasn’t just a rapper. And I noticed that I didn’t want to do this just to rap. I do want to go down as one of the greatest rappers of all time, but I also want to go down as one of the greatest musicians of all time. When you think about it, Tupac is just known as a great rapper; Biggie is just known as a great rapper, Jay-Z — just known as a great rapper. I want to be known as that rapper that turned it all the way up and became the face of the music. When they make a billboard and put whoever they gonna put up there to define the word ‘music,’ I wanna be there.”
