Future’s not singing on this but it’s surprisingly good. Mostly all about bumping haters/traitors and being your confident self yada yada. It’s a look into his life as a touring musician most importantly, and why he doesn’t regret anything.
Covering a soul standard, Busta and The Abstract team up with famous friends (who don’t actually rhyme on the track). Still it’s a jam for the older folk and some revivalists.
The genius of well-placed satire: basic re-enactment turned awesome.
Always have to do the Asher Roth procedure and put Marshall Mathers aside when listening to Hopsin. He appropriates a style that will inevitably be popular for a while. This, his album, is available for download now. Internet rap at its finest.

Part 2 Of Eminem’s Interview With Zane Lowe Part 3 after the jump. (more…)

Zane Lowe’s interview with Kanye West took on a life of its own, spawning controversy and a feud turned national-television resolution. Eminem’s no stranger to…anyone. Hopefully, this series gives more insight into his process.
He seems a little “too cool” for radio freestyling but he does his best to entertain the hosts.
