    Danny Brown Talks On The Time He Met Eminem

    Danny Brown has been relatively quite since releasing Old, and while we haven't really been getting any new music from him (apart from "Sweeney Song"), he's still making the interview rounds from time to time. Yesterday he sat down with Sway Calloway on RapFix and shared some of what he's been up to since Old. Among his adventures, Danny had some involvement in Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" video, he's visited South Africa, and he met Eminem.

    Charts Don't Lie: December 8

    This week nothing major dropped in terms of hip-hop. Nonetheless, overall album sales went up by 42%. To what can we blame this spike in sales? It would be safe to say Black Friday, which is basically the commencement of the holiday season/shopping frenzy. It's interesting to see the effects on the charts, as many of the rap albums we're looking at today were affected positively from this season of giving, and thus we're seeing a lot of sales increase by large percentages-- Drake's Nothing Was The Same, for example, spiked by 349% in sales.

    Eminem found his way back to #1 on the Billboard 200, after spending a week at #2. The rapper sold the same amount that some rappers do opening week (if not more) and he's in his third week on shelves with MMLP2. Em's standard for success has undoubtedly been raised higher than the average rapper, so if we were to compare those sales to that of Yo Gotti's opening week for I Am, you may not seem too impressed. But nonetheless, Yo Gotti did well for himself, selling more than any of his past releases, with 47,469 copies, and debuting at #7.

    You may remember Asher Roth's track from Asleep In The Bread Aisle where he addressed Eminem comparisons, and if you don't-- Eminem sure does. On a track from his recently released MMLPII Em goes at Asher for what he claims to be a backhanded compliment. "Quit actin' salty, I was countin' on you to count me out/Ask Asher Roth when he round-a-bout dissed me to shout me out/Thought I was history/But goddamn honkey, that compliment's like backhanding a donkey," said Em on "Asshole," making reference to Roth's "As I Em".

    Eminem and Rihanna are apparently an unstoppable force. The two teamed up on "Love The Way You Lie" back in 2010, which went on to become Eminem's best selling single, moving six million units in the U.S. alone. Em and RiRi's latest offering isn't doing too bad for itself either, hitting the platinum mark this week.

    This week we have two new-comers on Charts Don't Lie, the first being buzzing singer Jhene Aiko and the latter, veteran in the game, Bun B. Jhene Aiko pulled pretty good numbers for her debut EP, leaving us hopeful for what's to come from the West Coast native. Her buzz will only continue to climb leading up to the release of her debut album, Soul(ed) Out, and so dropping the EP was definitely a good look for the singer. The EP was projected to move 25-30k, but surpassed 30k with 33,000 units opening week.

    We heard awhile back that a music video for Eminem's "Rap God" was being shot, and now another visual off MMLP2 is in the works. The Rihanna-featured "The Monster" will soon come to life, and is being shot in Em's hometown of Detroit. The video is being shot by Rich Lee (who also worked with the rapper on "Not Afraid" and "Lighters"). Only two flicks from the set thus far, peep them in the gallery above.

    Eminem sat down with Zane Lowe for an extensive interview following the release of the Marshall Mathers LP 2. During the second part of the interview, which was released today, Em talks about his ability to make hugely successful records, although they may not be your typical 'pop' records lyrics-wise (as Marshall says, he never compromised "lyrical integrity").

    The year 2014 marks the 18-year anniversary of Eminem's underground debut album Infinite. With almost 20 years worth of material floating around, Eminem has one of the densest musical catalogues out there. On top of that, he's also one of the most consistent rappers in the game, so you're hard-pressed to find something from Em that's not worth listening too.

    Eminem's new album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, may not have been what everyone expected. It definitely was not an obvious reminder of its namesake, the first Marshall Mathers LP, but as Eminem explains in his interview with Zane Lowe, he was going more for a "subliminally nostalgic" record-- not just a "blatant throwback." Was he successful?

    Eminem week officially hit us with full force. We've seen legendary rappers like Jay Z and Kanye West both drop albums this past year, but none compared to the chart domination of Slim Shady. As we mentioned last week, a few of Em's old albums had popped back up on the Billboard 200, presumably due to anticipation for new one, MMLP2.

    We recently heard Tech N9ne go crazy (and spit super fast) on Hopsin's "Rip Your Heart Out," which is just one of several collaborations the two rappers have done together.The same day "Rip Your Heart Out" dropped, we hit up DJ Skee's Skee Live show and got to talk to Tech about his music and who else he'd like to work with in the rap game. Tech Ninna revealed a desire to work with the self-proclaimed "Rap God" and fellow lyrical rapper, Eminem.

    Eminem sold an insane number of copies of The Marshall Mathers LP 2 this week, but it turns out it wasn't the only one of his albums flying off the shelves. The hype around Em's new record was apparently strong enough that ALL SEVEN of his previous solo albums showed up on the Billboard 200.

    Eminem took things back to basics on his new LP. The Detroit rapper recruited one of Hip Hop's pioneers, Rick Rubin, to help him channel some classic sounds and ideas, many of which came through sampling.  The late 80s era of hip hop they pull from is well-represented in plenty of small vocal snippets and interpolations not instantly evident to the casual rap listener. Many of the musical samples also harken back to the days of Run DMC, where rock-based loops were the norm.

    As expected, Eminem did some big numbers for the opening week of Marshall Mathers LP 2. The album was projected to sell 700,000 to 750,000, and if the initial numbers are correct, he did even better than projected.

    The Marshall Mathers LP dropped in 2000 and became the fastest selling solo album of all time, influencing a whole generation of artists with its unique and in-depth look into the bizarre world of Eminem. The album was sandwiched in between Slim Shady LP and The Eminem Show – two other classic albums that are every bit as influential today as they were a decade ago.

    Repetition remains a reality in the rap game, and specific bars tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not sure about will be bolded.
