Rockabye Baby! is a project that takes popular songs and reconstructs them as kid-friendly lullabies. The ironic appeal of it is not lost on co-creator Lisa Roth. Since 2006, she and her team have released over 60 albums, covering artists from The Clash to Nickelback and got a taste for the idea’s ironic appeal after the release of their first series, which included Radiohead, Metallica, and Coldplay. For their latest release, they’ve given an unlikely artist the lullaby treatment: Eminem.

But even though children will only be hearing the soothing melodies...

Movie soundtracker and occasional album releaser Eminem is back spitting rapid-fire rhymes with “Kings Never Die” to accompany the release of the Jake Gyllenhaal boxing movie Southpaw. After the “Guts Over Fear” single appeared on Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer OST with professional face-hider Sia, Marshall has hooked up Gwen Stefani on the second of two singles from the rapper on the Southpaw soundtrack. No Doubt it’ll be a huge hit. The full album is due for release on July 24th, and will also feature tracks from The Weeknd, Bad Meets Evil, 50 Cent and Slaughterhouse.

Meanwhile, Eminem’s first single from the Southpaw...

The history of hip-hop is littered with chance relationships that spurred their members to greatness: Puffy and Biggie, Jay Z and Kanye West, Teddy Riley and Keith Sweat. But not all of rap’s important hook-ups have been positive.

In fact, the defining relationship of arguably the most important rapper of the last 15 years was also one of the most toxic celebrity relationships in recent memory, a relationship so passionate and twisted that it led to the creation of some of the most stomach-churningly violent music ever to capture the imagination of American listeners. I’m talking, of course,...

Last we heard from Eminem, he was doing what he does best: eviscerating pop cultural figures ranging from Donald Trump to Bill Cosby in an epic, six-minute freestyle.

These days, we take it for granted that Slim Shady will be around pissing people off and stirring up controversy for several decades to come, but the future wasn't always so certain for the 42-year-old rapper.

In the new issue of Men's Health magazine, Em opens up about his weight struggles and the drug addiction that nearly cost him his life.

"In 2007, I overdosed on pills, and I went...

Still, the murder is not incidental: it’s the climax of the record. All through the song, beautifully layered under the vocals, are background noises. They accompany Eminem’s conversational, half-spoken rapping and the unassuming, mid-tempo beat: literal scribbles in the margin of the track, encroaching thunder and rain. In the third verse, the rain is broken up by the wet swoosh of a car windscreen wiper, and, on cue, a woman screaming. Her death, and Stan’s, are what this track has been leading up to.

The presence of a dead woman in the song makes matters more dramatic, certainly. In some eyes, it...

(AllHipHop News) Even Eminem will say he is not as well-known for his production as he is for his rhymes, but the Detroit representative has produced tracks for some of the biggest names in Hip Hop. The rapper/producer stopped by his own Shade 45 to talk with Sway Calloway, and Em discussed producing for Jay Z, Nas, and Redman.

“Making beats like [Jay Z’s] ‘Renegade’ and ‘Moment of Clarity’, that sh*t is just fun for me. Just to even hear Jay rhyme over a beat that I did is like a f*cking dream to...
