Speaking on Eminem:
An acquaintance of mine, from years ago in the OMFG!!! EPMD IS THE SHIT!!! era often would promote local events, and though he was successful, his promos often included SPECIAL *INVITED* GUESTS: sO & sO! Well, you can invite God to the show, you know, but he might not come.
Britain's Sun tabloid says Detroit rap star Eminem has confirmed his appearance at Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday party in London's Hyde Park on June 27." It turns out he was only contacted about the event.
Same article reports Eminem & Will Smith could release material at the same time. Maybe we'll get some Kanye/50 cent vibe going. Well, not quite. It's less like Kanye/50 cent & more like Eminem/someone who makes blockbuster-ass movies, who doesn't make good records anymore, who will probably do better release his material around the time Artest does.
