It seems like it was just yesterday when Nicki Minaj proudly took the crown from Eminem as the most followed rapper on Twitter. Those 11 million fans are following one less person today because Nicki deleted her Twitter Account this weekend. She seemed rather upset, sending the following tweets the day before she actually deleted her page,
“And that’s exactly why I’m paying the barbz DUST right now! And deleting my twitter. Smdh - don’t cry 4 me argentina.”/ “On 2nd thought I’ll just follow a new set of barbz. The ones I follow r very mean and ratchet.*side eyes them*.”
Her frustration obviously reached an all-time high the next day because she told fans, “Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good f*cking bye.” Then, the page was gone. However, fans were not pleased with her decision to leave. Soon after her departure, the topic #NickiComeBack began to trend.
Well, if it’s any consolation, we want to see Nicki return to twitter as well so #NickiComeBack.Read More
Coachella was huge this weekend…and there is still another weekend to go. Performances from Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Rihanna and many more ensured fans were given something to remember this weekend. There was once performance that gave everyone a moment they would never forget. Snoop Dogg performed with no other than Tupac during the festival. A life-like hologram appeared on stage to join Snoop by performing “Hail Mary” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.” The performances occurred during Snoop and Dr. Dre’s set which also featured Eminem, 50 Cent, and Wiz Khalifa. You can watch a video of the performance below.Read More

You may remember last year Eminem had a commercial with Chrysler that aired during the 2011 Super Bowl. It’s notable on several levels including Em isn’t exactly a huge endorser like that. For one of the most successful musicians of all time, he’s obviously one who enjoys not being in front of a camera (“Say Goodbye To Hollywood” from The Eminem Show was some honest music now that I look back on it). The second reason is that, even with what you read in the previous sentence, when he does endorse a product, it’s most of the time highly successful. With that said, there’s always a penalty of success though. And as it relates to the Chrysler commercial, Marshall’s facing a $9M (handwritten) lawsuit.
Follow me now:
1. Stephen Lee Pieck is apparently a homeless man from Westchester, New York.
2. Pieck was in a seafood restaurant (Legal Seafood) in White Plains, New York, on September 9, 2010. According to the suit, Jordon Bratman and Christina Aguilera were also in the establishment.
3. Aguilera called Eminem and supposedly handed the phone to Pieck who soon convinced Em to run with his “Born of Fire” commercial idea.
4. Pieck listed two numbers on the legal document. One went to his mother’s house (who refused to talk about the lawsuit) and the other was a cell phone, which had a woman answer and then hang up.
That’s the story and now the question is this? Is anyone actually going to believe it? And in the chance someone does believe this story, how much bread will he take home (wherever that may be)?
To read the entire lawsuit, head over to AllHipHop.Read More

With the release of his Radioactive album just a few days away, Yelawolf and his Shady Records boss Eminem graze the cover of the year end issue of Vibe. The other issue will be covered by T.I., and both magazines will hit shelves on December 6th. Below is an excerpt from the interview with Eminem & Yelawolf where they speak on their past history with drugs.
You mentioned getting yourself right. Are you completely clean these days as far as alcohol and drugs?
EM: Except for the heroin I shot up this morning. Except for that, I’m clean. [Laughs]
While you’re clean, Yelawolf here smokes weed and—
Yelawolf: No, I don’t.
I hear that in your music a lot.
YW: I started smoking weed at 11. By 12, I was smoking dust. Thirteen, acid, Freon, special k, mushrooms; 16 years old, I was selling X pills at school. Not even because I was a good dope boy, but because I was a scumbag. It was called chocolate chip, and it had heroin in it. I used to take that shit and go to class. I went so heavy into drugs that I had a bad trip one time that lasted for months.
One of the most anticipated tracks off of Yelawolf‘s upcoming album, which features Gangsta Boo and Eminem with WillPower on the production. Radioactive hits stores on November 21stRead More
