Eminem's Childhood Home Demolished Over Safety Concerns

11/26/2013 5:00pm EST
Marshall Mathers LP 2
A wrecking crew in Detroit, Mich., demolished Eminem's childhood home on Monday after it was ravaged by a fire earlier this month.
 
Representatives at Michigan Land Bank were forced by law to demolish the building and said in a statement last week: "The condition of the property post-fire presents a safety hazard that the Land Bank is responsible for removing. The goal is to demolish and clean up the site, so neighborhood safety and order can be restored."
 
The rapper featured pictures of the property on his albums "The Marshall Mathers LP" and recent release "The Marshall Mathers LP 2."

Lamar Odom
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.

Lamar Odom Raps About Infidelity: It's been rumored for some time that Lamar has been unfaithful to wife Khloe Kardashian and has been using cocaine. So it's gotta be false that there's a video floating around with Lamar rapping about sleeping around, right?

Verdict: True. The video exists and even worse, he might be high in it. Odom slurs through lyrics in the grainy footage, which includes the line "...

Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 Debuts Big On Billboard 200

Marshall Mathers LP 2
Eminem unsurprisingly debuts at the penthouse with The Marshall Mathers LP 2. And yes, the numbers are gargantuan.  While Eminem was unable to beat the 968,000 copies that Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, he did sell 792,000 copies.  The former second-largest debut of 2013 was Drake’s Nothing Was The Same (658,000 copies), which now settles for third-largest debut.  Eminem is the biggest news, but not the sole news on the Albums chart this week.

Celine Dion’s Loved Me Back To Life debuts at no. 2, selling 77,000 copies.  Those numbers are  nothing to ‘write home about’.  Sure, the...

Arcade Fire return to a familiar place, the number one spot on the Billboard Album Charts.  The Montreal band’s most recent album, Reflektor moves a respectable 140,000 copies.  Compared to 2010 effort The Suburbs, the most recent figure is just slightly less (The Suburbs moved 156,000 copies).  Arcade Fire knocks Katie Perry off of her perch, sending PRISM to settle for no. 2 selling 92,000 copies.  According to billboard.com, Perry had a solid second week considering how much huge debuts tend to wane in sales.  That said, what is more noticeable to me is that only one album sells over 100...

Review: 'Marshall Mathers LP 2' - Eminem Keeps Hip-Hop Alive And Well On MMLP2

11/5/2013 10:47am EST
Marshall Mathers LP 2
It seems like a decade since hip-hop was considered to be “dead” – well it’s nearly been a decade actually.  Nas went so far to memorialize the genre on his 2006 album Hip Hop is Dead.  Again, in 2013, we have a rap vet who takes a similar perspective that the genre has fallen on hard times due to playing up dumb, meaningless clichés.  While it is arguable (depending on who you ask) whether Eminem is truly the “Rap God” as he asserts, what is true is that rap definitely has its less ‘artistic’ MC’s. In other words, rap has went so ‘stupid’ it’s gone plumb ‘dumb’! Sure, Eminem is known for h...

K-Pop Group Takes Top Prize At First YouTube Music Awards

The winner of the Video of the Year was the relatively-unknown group Girls' Generation at the inaugural YouTube Music Awards.

Every awards show has growing pains, especially during its first show. Hey, even the Academy Awards has issues after 85. However, the online streaming show was at times hectic and at others completely bereft of content. For example, at one point comedic hosts Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts were given two crying babies while they were trying to interview Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Perhaps giving the top prize to Korean girl group Girls' Generation was apt given ...

How Eminem Devastates The Competition On 'Rap God'

10/21/2013 2:30pm EDT
Eminem
In rap music in 2013, everyone seems to want to be the ‘Savior’.  Kanye West proclaimed himself to be a ‘god’ on the blatantly titled “I Am A God”, even foreshadowing beforehand on Yeezus at the end of “Black Skinhead”. A$AP Ferg even titled his debut Trap Lord.  Argue the difference between lord and god all you want, but they seem nearly, if not ‘one in the same’.  Jay-Z joined the boat as well on Magna Carta…Holy Grail.  Why is everyone trying to be God? I’m unsure, but there sure have been plenty of ‘gods’ this year.

A couple of years ago, it was fine to be merely a ‘king’ (P$C’s “I’m a...

Eminem was giving hints about the second single off his upcoming album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, but an early leak forced the rapper to release "Rap God" - and it's getting rave reviews.

Whereas his Bezerk video was a callback to the 80s, in Rap God Eminem takes on all newcomers with a simple backing track that allows for some amazing vocal work to shine.

"I'm beginning to feel like a Rap God, Rap God / All my people from the front to the back nod, back nod," is the simple hook, but in between Eminem lays down minutes-long verses. The song itself clocks in at 6 minutes.
