“I got a record on this project called ‘Throw It Up’ and it’s me, Gangsta Boo and Marshall,” he said. “The way we put records together on this album, we really wanted to create juxtaposition. Shock value. If we had a feature, we wanted to make it classic. Not to have a feature just for having a feature. It’s easy to get Marshall and be like, ‘Yo, let’s make a huge pop single!’ The goal was to really make classic records. Imagine me, Gangsta Boo and Marshall. It’s like a bad porno.”
Radioactive, which features production from Jim Jonsin, J Dot, KP, The Audibles, Chuck Inglish, WillPower and more, is due October 25th.
Eminem has signed Slaughterhouse and Alabama rapper Yelawolf to his Shady Records enterprise.
The move comes after lengthy legal wrangling with Slaughterhouse. Yelawolf is best known for his gritty, lyrical style and mixtape album Trunk Muzik.
“Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse, it’s kinda phase two of Shady,” Eminem told said in a statement released today (January 12th). “It’s the new generation of Shady Records and as we’re trying to rebuild our label, it’s exciting for hip-hop and with all of these forces coming together and with what everybody’s capable of on the mic, it’s gonna be fun.”
Three days ago at the MTV Movie Awards, Sacha Baron Cohen caused a firestorm as “Bruno” when he landed ass first on Eminem. Many speculated for the days whether the stunt was staged or real, with everyone speaking except the man himself. Breaking his silence, Em spoke exclusively to Rap Radar about the entire “ordeal”.
RR: Can you clear up the Bruno stunt at the MTV Awards? Was it staged or planned?
Eminem: Sacha called me when we were in Europe and he had an idea to do something outrageous at the Movie Awards. I’m a big fan of his work so I agreed to get involved with the gag.
If it wasn’t planned the way you agreed to, do you hold MTV or Sacha responsible and will you take any kind of action?
I’m thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it. It had so many people going “nuts” so to speak. Everyone was blowing me up about it.
After you left the ceremony, where did you go?
After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about 3 hours. Especially after I saw it on air.
There is a rumor that you hotel room was robbed and theives got 60K and your laptop while you were at ceremony. Is that true and if so what would someone find on your computer?
The only thing was that I lost a Nike watch that we were looking for. The rest it is made-up like half the other stuff out there.
How do you think the show with Jay went and how did it feel performing “Renegade” again?
I love performing with Jay. Its the third time we’ve done the song together live and its always fun. It was an honor to share the stage with him again and to work with his band.
