Hi, friends! This is Eminem.pro and our regular digest of Moms Spaghetti. It’s been a whole month since our last video, we took a small break.
First things first… It’s a special date because, this very same day 6 years ago, April 30, 2012, we released the first issue of our EJ magazine. Now, to celebrate this event, we issued a special edition and it’s available in PDF format, as well as in our iPhone and Android apps. Be sure to check it out.
Ok, now let’s reminisce on everything that we’ve heard from Eminem these past weeks.
April 3rd Eminem released his new video for Framed, which fans came to love. The video has similar visuals and atmosphere to 3 A.M. from Relapse. It’s actually quite interesting to watch both concept-wise and just for the pleasure of entertainment. So go on, watch it again, if it’s been a while since you’ve last seen it.
In April the album Revival reached 700 million streams on Spotify. The total number of plays through all major streaming services is more than 1 billion!
Of course, the main event, which we want to dedicate this episode to, is Eminem’s performance at Coachella.
As usual, Eminem started rehearsing a few days before the show, and he did his best to entertain the fans. First, he published a video where he was dancing to his Berzerk track, and then, out of the blue, he took over his own Twitter.
And it was only the beginning! Em even used Twitter to text his manager Paul Rosenberg, who also now manages Def Jam. “Paul, answer your fucking phone!” – was Eminem’s tweet. Paul’s response was “This is so embarrassing!” Apparently pointing out to Em that Twitter posts are not for private conversations.
So, Marshall finally caught up with the times and now is running his social media himself. He even recorded a story for his followers on Instagram, telling about an upcoming album of one of Shady’s artists, Boogie. Em jokingly said that likes Boogie only because hes on Shady records, but by the end of the story he mentions he also think’s he’s a good artist too. Same Shady we have known for years now. Let’s cross fingers and hope that Em is going to be present on the album!
April 14 Eminem dropped a new app, which will allow fans to have an extraordinary experience at his summer concerts. The App is called Eminem Augmented, and it uses AR technology. If you look at the trailers it looks great! And by the way, don’t forget to download our app, because we are also preparing a big surprise for you!
So where were we? Ahh yes, Coachella!
This show was different from all the others Eminem’s done in the past years. The new stage, the visuals and a brand new set of songs to what was constantly performed earlier. It also features such great guest acts as Dr. Dre, 50 Cent with a couple of his classics performed together with Eminem, and of course the female parts were accompanied by Skylar Grey. Another unexpected feature was the performance of Monster alongside songwriter, Bebe Rexha. Classic hits with Dre, like Still D.R.E., Nothin’ but a “G” Thang, Forgot About Dre and California Love were all performed with Eminem doing his verses and Snoop Doggs parts as well, which was refreshing. Watch the performance on our channel and see it for yourself. And write about other fun things you’ve noticed about the show in the comments. Let’s hope this is the new visual format for future shows.
Recently Eminem shared a selfie with “Motown King” Smokey Robinson. Smokey confirmed on his Twitter that this was a photo from the studio. “Studio time with young legends” he wrote, commenting pictures with Dr.Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Anderson Paak. Looks like these guys are preparing something hot for us! Let’s hope for it!
Last week we had some bad news from the Shady camp. Shady’s super group Slaughterhouse suffered another loss. KXNG Crooked announced that he’s leaving the group. This was later confirmed by Royce 5’9 when he tweeted: “Done deal. Let’s all move on. It was fun”. The only positive is that the group split without any beef or arguments neither within the group nor with Shady Records. So maybe that’s a glimmer of hope that someday GlassHouse will see the light of day, Em, Paul, please let us hear it.
On April 22 Em celebrated his 10th anniversary of being sober. He posted a photo of himself holding an anniversary badge. The tracks Castle and Arose from his latest studio album touch upon the topic of his past addiction and near death from overdose. It’s been 10 years, keep it up Em, we believe in you!
The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry published their annual Global Music Report with the top selling artist, album and song list for 2017. Eminem holds 5th place in the list of the most popular and top selling artists of 2017, while his new album Revival which came out in December holds 8th place in the world’s tops 10 albums of 2017.
On April 26 Em tweeted about a studio session with the singer Jessie Reyez. “In the studio with my new super talented friend Jessie” says the tweet with quite a peculiar selfie (maybe it’s Em’s new invention). So we might be in for a new collab soon.
Last but not least, May 4th or maybe even sooner we will hear Marshall’s new collaboration with Royce 5’9, the track “Caterpillar” from Royce’s upcoming album “Book Of Ryan” with Logic on the remix of the track. Get ready for a biology lesson from Bad Meets Evil.
