Eminem To Commemorate ‘The Slim Shady LP’ With SSLP20 Merch Capsule

Eminem has announced his new “SSLP20” merch capsule to commemorate the 20th anniversary of The Slim Shady LP.

On Thursday (November 14), the project’s mastermind sent out a tweet alongside a video clip that includes Lego versions of Em and his longtime business partner Paul Rosenberg.

Just like the skit on the album, as “Guilty Conscience” plays in the background, Rosenberg calls up Slim Shady. Simply put, Rosenberg isn’t happy with some of the lyrics. But, in typical Eminem fashion, he disregards Rosenberg’s advice.

“There’s only so much I can explain,” the tweet reads. “#StillDontGiveAFuck #SSLP20 Drop 2 Coming 11/19 – Paul not included. Sign up for first access.”

According to Eminem’s official website, the bundles include vinyl, cassettes and other collectible items exclusive to the site. As he mentioned, a limited quantity will be available beginning on November 19.

The Slim Shady LP was released in 1999 and spawned singles such as “My Name Is,” “Just Don’t Give A Fuck” and the aforementioned “Guilty Conscience” featuring Dr. Dre.

It’s one of Em’s only albums to debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, selling roughly 283,000 copies in its first week.

Eminem Unleashes New "Slim Shady LP" Merch Capsule

With Eminem having reached megastar status long ago, it’s crazy to think back on a time when his reach was purely underground. Coming up with D12 and The Outsidaz, Em was no stranger to sleeping on couches and floors — at least, until his demo found itself in the hands Dr. Dre. Together, they began working on what would come to be The Slim Shady LP, Em’s debut studio album and an integral hip-hop classic. Now, with that project having reached the age twenty, Em has taken to IG to launch another merch capsule in celebration.

Unlike prior drops, this one steers away from clothing. Instead, we’ve got some dope Lego figurines depicting some Em’s iconic looks, a limited edition cassette, a vinyl print the “Expanded Edition,” a film-strip visual plaque, and more. Should you be interested in dropping the ducats, head over to the ficial Eminem store for more details. 

Should you be interested in revisiting Eminem’s Slim Shady LP, you can read some our analysis on the project right here. Many are quick to name it within Em’s Top 3 catalog, and it certainly left a hell an impression on the mainstream audiences. Do you still bump Em’s debut on occasion? And if not, have you any interest in listening to it?

The Joe Budden Podcast Weighs In On T.I.’s Hymen Controversy

Social media was recently turned upside down after T.I. revealed on Nadia Moham and Nazanin Mandi’s Ladies Like Us podcast that he visits the gynecologist with his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah Harris to make sure that she’s a virgin by having the physician check for her hymen. Since the podcast aired, T.I. has been heavily criticized by the public for what they call “policing” a woman’s vagina, and the men over on The Joe Budden Podcast discussed the controversy on a recent episode. Joe and his crew didn’t want to get into talking about a teenage girl’s body parts, but they did want to share their takes on the situation.

“That’s another rule mine. I don’t tell parents how they should parent,” Joe said. Mal later added that he understood T.I. was attempting to communicate that he is an overprotective father. “I don’t think he should have said this on a public platform, one,” Mal said, adding, “And two, if you and your daughter have that relationship, then I think that should be a relationship between you and your daughter.” They all agreed that T.I.’s move to share that information with the public about his teenage daughter wasn’t a good look.

“How you maneuver as a famous parent to your age child], like they’re 18 and they have to really go out and deal with the world, school classmates, their peers, their friends, it’s important,” Joe said. “I even think twice about the things I even write under my kid’s Instagram because I don’t know what you got going on, how you are with your friends, I don’t know how they’re receiving you. I don’t want to embarrass you.”

It’s clear the Joe wanted to be careful about speaking specifically about T.I.’s relationship with Deyjah, but it seems that the hosts take more issue with the publicity it all more than the actual act T.I.’s request. Watch the clip below.

Summer Walker’s Tour Cancellation Proves Fans Get Her: "She’s Doing What’s Best"

Summer Walker has racked up quite a loving fan base ever since her Last Days Summer taped dropped last year. More recently, Summer released her debut album Over It that’s still sitting pretty at #1 on Apple Music since fans can’t get enough the 18-track fering produced solely by London On Da Track.

Summer has always maintained honest communication with fans on social media, previously expressing her battle with anxiety and it’s for that reason the “Playing Games” singer pulled a number tour stops from her The First To Last Tour with Melii. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to finish this tour because it doesn’t really co-exist with my social anxiety and my introverted personality but I really hope that people understand and respect that at the end the day. I’m a person,” she wrote on Instagram. 

We can only image the move wasn’t an easy one to make and thankfully a large number Summer’s fans understand where she’s coming from. “Summer Walker is not being unreasonable! Maybe she thought she could handle a tour when she signed the contract. Maybe she was being pressured by her team. Now she’s doing what’s best for her and her mental health,” one fan wrote on Twitter. 

Of course, there are a handful tweets people who are pissed that Summer’s not coming to their city or those who think she needs to fire her PR but we’re choosing to focus on the kind words Summer’s been receiving. Peep some reactions below and let us know what you think.

Dave East Explains Why Kodak Black Was Dropped From His "Survival" Album

Dave East‘s Survival album arrived last week and was filled with 20-tracks with strong features by DJ Premier, J. Black, Teyana Taylor, Lil Baby, Rick Ross, The-Dream, Fabolous, Jacquees, Mozzy, Gunna and more. The 14th fering on the tape, “Night Shift” featuring Lil Baby, was initailly supposed to feature Kodak Black but due to past remarks Kodak made about Lauren London, Dave scraped the idea.

As we know, Nipsey Hussle was a good friend Dave’s and the duo had a connection that was “deeper than rap.” After the tragic, untimely passing Nipsey, Kodak made inappropriate comments about Lauren London’s widow status on Instagram Live that resulted in some serious backlash from the hip hop community. It’s for that reason, along with Dave’s conscious, why he dropped Kodak from his album. 

“Anybody—I don’t care who it might have been—don’t speak on that man after he’s gone if it’s not in a positive light. Don’t speak on that man’s woman, that man’s kids. Don’t bring that man up,” Dave told Big Boy in a recent interview. “I just couldn’t have a song called ‘The Marathon Continues’ where I’m talking to my brother—and he’s on it—and a few songs before it, you know.”

Despite Dave’s removal Kodak, he doesn’t harbour any ill feelings towards him. “But like I said, I don’t have no problems with homie. Free Kodak Black.”

RZA Breaks Down Hip-Hop’s Cultural Lineage On The Joe Rogan Experience

When three distinctive personalities sit down for one roundtable discussion, you can expect a few gems to fly. Legendary artist RZA and actor slash comedian Donnell Rawlings (The Wire) recently linked up for a conversation on The Joe Rogan Experience, which spanned a little over two hours long. For the most part, Donnell was running amok, dropping jokes and bantering at every opportunity; while hilarious, it did overshadow RZA’s more st-spoken nature, which proved frustrating for some. Still, Bobby Digital dropped a few notable gems, showing a deep level cultural awareness within hip-hop’s DNA.

RZA Breaks Down Hip-Hop's Cultural Lineage On The Joe Rogan Experience

“Hip-hop is a pure American culture,” explains RZA. “When it was formed, a lot young black men, going back to Hool Herc, Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel, Spoony G, Grandmaster Caz. Within Grandmaster Caz’s crew The Cold Crush Brothers, you had Charlie Chase. You got the Spanish brother there. Our first hip-hop songs we loved, LL Cool J‘s “Rock The Bells,” guess who produced that? Rick Rubin. You got the white brother there. The youth culture America at that time…all these things was melding from our culture. It’s a dominantly black expression. We dominated the culture. It took angles from every part New York to make it exist. It took our Spanish brothers and their culture, it took our white brothers and their culture. And then when Wu-Tang came we brought the Asian culture in.”

Dubbing it an “inclusive American art-form,” RZA explains that people should be proud how hip-hop came to manifest. He also details his extremely niche diet, the game’s changing business practices, and gems for days. Check out the Wu-Tang style courtesy JRE. 

Migos Win "Walk It, Talk It" Lawsuit, Judge Cites Other Songs That Use Phrase

In October 2018, it was reported that Migos were being sued by M.O.S. for allegedly ripping f his 2007 song, “Walk It Like I Talk It”. Both M.O.S.’ song and MigosDrake-assisted hit, “Walk It, Talk It”, repeat the phrase in their titles. When Migos member, Quavo, was asked about the lawsuit a few months after the story came out, he claimed he was not even aware it, but denied it being guilty regardless. “‘Walk it, talk it’ is a saying from Atlanta,” he explained. “It had been a saying since the 2000s. Everybody say ‘walk it, talk it.’ My grandpa, my uncles and shit say ‘walk it, talk it.’ Man, that shit’s an old saying, man. We been saying ‘walk it, talk it.'”  

According to AllHipHop, a judge has sided in Migos’ favor, invoking a similar argument as Quavo. “Because songwriters must be free to borrow sayings and expressions from popular culture, the Second Circuit and courts in this district have found that short and commonplace phrases are not protectable, even when used as the title or repeated lyrics a song, as is the case here,” Judge Analisa Torres ruled. 

Judge Torres also cited other examples rap songs that make use this phrase in the same repetitive fashion, such as Paul Wall’s 2005 song “March ‘n’ Step”, Young Jeezy’s 2006 song “3 A.M.” and Wiz Khalifa’s 2007 song “Be Easy.” 

“The only similarity between the two works at issue, the lyrics “walk it like I talk it,” is not original to the author and is, therefore, not protected by the copyright laws,” Judge Torres ruled. Even though M.O.S. would likely not have been successful in copyrighting this phrase, since it has other origins in Atlanta’s culture, he hadn’t even copyrighted his own song until after Migos’ song was released along with Culture II. Judge Torres pointed out that this also compromised M.O.S.’ case. “As courts in this district have held, a copyright infringement claim will be dismissed where the allegedly infringed work, in this case, the musical composition, was not registered at the time the original complaint was filed,” she said. 

Jorge Masvidal Roasts Conor McGregor For Ducking A Fight: Watch

Jorge Masvidal has been proving himself to be one the most elite fighters in the world thanks to his vicious and no holds barred approach to mixed martial arts. Just last weekend, Masvidal fought Nate Diaz for the BMF belt and won after the referee decided to stop the fight early. Now that Masvidal has the BMF belt all to himself, he pretty much had free reign when it comes to deciding who he will take on next. 

During a recent appearance on The Dan LeBatard Show, Masvidal spoke about how there was a real possibility he could have fought against the likes Conor McGregor. Since winning the fight, it appears as though McGregor has become less a realistic prospect and Masvidal explained exactly how that happened.

“To be quite frank, Conor] was flirting with fighting the winner when the possibility the winner was Nate,” Masvidal said. “He kept throwing it out there. He even made his prediction. But, since I’ve won, he hasn’t said a peep. If you wanna fight, I’m licking my chops.”

Masvidal went on to explain that he doesn’t want to cyberbully McGregor or anything like that but finds it suspect that Conor would want to fight Diaz and not himself. There’s no doubt MMA fans would want to see these two battle it out so hopefully, a resolution can be made.

'Jagged Little Pill' from Alanis Morissette Crosses $1.1 Million in First Week

A new Broadway musical written in part by Alanis Morissette generated more than $1 million in ticket sales during its first week.

Jagged Little Pill saw $1,107,845 in sales for the week ending November 10. This was for eight performances that are considered previews of the show. It further filled around 95% of the seats in the Broadhurst Theater and reached 89% of its box office potential. The latter number is expected to rise as ticket prices begin to go up.

The numbers helped raise total revenue on Broadway, which rose 14% for the week to $35.4 million. The number of tickets sold there also rose, 8% to nearly 300,000.

Jagged Little Pill is based on Morissette’s 1997 album of the same name. But the show is not about her directly. Instead, it focuses on a suburban family and the problems that they face.

Jagged Little Pill is not the only musical on Broadway to recently open with ties to a famous female artist.

Tina, which is a musical biography of Tina Turner, opened on November 7. It also brought in more than a million dollars for the week, with a total haul of $1,332,425. Though this represents a 9% drop in revenue in comparison to the week before.

While Morissette wrote the music for Jagged Little Pill, along with Glen Ballard, Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody wrote the book. Additionally, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Tom Kitt arranged the orchestrations, with direction by Diane Paulus and choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

Among others, the show stars Kathryn Gallagher, Celia Rose Gooding, Derek Klena and Sean Allan Krill.

The musical contains many songs from the original album, which won five Grammy Awards, including for Album of the Year, while selling more than 33 million records. This includes “Uninvited” and “Thank U.” The show also features two new songs that Morissette wrote specifically for it: “Uninvited” and “Thank U.”
