    Stay Sober: Rappers Who Don't Smoke Or Drink

    Drugs are everywhere in hip-hop. Whether they're mentioned on the radio, seen in music videos, or smuggled into concerts, drugs are pretty much unavoidable in the genre. Weed, lean, pills, coke, booze, shrooms, you name it, dope's not to hard to find. Many rappers, like Juicy J or Lil Wayne, have made it clear in their music that they love getting fucked up. Despite the popularity of drugs in hip-hop culture, not every rapper partakes in popping mollys or getting fried.

    Eminem took to twitter to reveal the artwork for his new project today, in a fairly unconventional way.

Take a look at the official MMLPII artwork, as revealed by twitter user @bigbuckkilla66, below. pic.twitter.com/da62yBC6iX

    We didn't hear from Eminem for years, but with MMLPII dropping this week, his recent promo train has been inescapable. The Detroit rapper sat down with Shade 45's Sway for an in-depth interview to talk about the album, his presence in the "Top 5" discussion, as well as sharing his own personal list.

    Rappers' Wives That Have Been Arrested

    It’s hard out there for the life of a rappers wife or that ride-or-die chick. Once you beat out the competition; the gold diggers, video vixens and schemers, and officially accept the title, your public image changes, usually for the worse. The role of the rappers wife includes extended alone time, which can make you feel like a single mother, cheating allegations and a hedonistic lifestyle of bottle poppin’ and partying. But what’s even more unfortunate is that it opens up your personal life to scrutiny from, well, pretty much everyone.

    J. Cole is going a unique route with his upcoming album 2014 Forest Hills Drive. He's shying away from traditional promo and album campaign, instead getting the fans directly involved by hosting a listening session at his childhood home (which the LP is named after) and inviting fans to come through. He's also not dropping any singles leading up to the December 9th release date.

    It's written in hip-hop lore: The story of a Detroit kid who fought severe personal poverty in hip-hop's battle underground, all the way to mainstream dominance. There's arguably been no other hip-hop star that's reached the level of cultural omnipresence that Eminem has at the turn of the millennium. He was hip-hop's greatest hopes and society's biggest fears all in one.

    Trick-Trick may be a rapper, but he's primarily known as the creator of the "No Fly Zone" policy that he enforces in his hometown of Detroit. Trick has been known to ban rappers from the city if they do not actively support the Detroit rap scene or collaborate with artists from the region. We most recently saw some conflict arise from this when Rick Ross attempted to play a show in Michigan, but it appears J.

    Some of the earliest criticisms of Eminem centered around his many references to his daughter Hailie, who was just a toddler when songs like "'97 Bonnie & Clyde" (the lyrics of which had Em taking her and her recently-murdered mother out for a drive) first dropped. If Em's original detractors were to be believed, this girl's life was in danger of being ruined, but now it seems that quite the opposite has happened. Hailie Mathers, now 18, has graduated her high school with top marks and is headed to Michigan State University.

    Eminem's compilation album Shady XV isn't supposed to be dropping until November 24th, but you know how things go on the internet, everything tends to arrive a tad early. Apparently Em isn't exempt from this general rule, and with album leaks circulating, fans (and blogs) have noticed a diss (of sorts) towards Iggy Azalea. The line in question appears on the Bad Meets Evil record "Vegas" off Shady XV's first disc.

    Top 10: Rappers Bodied On Their Own Shit

    Guest features have been an important part of hip hop throughout its history, and have become increasingly popular in recent years. It's a great way for artists to cross promote between each other's fan bases, as well as give each track a signature shakeup for a verse or two. The only problem with letting other rappers spit, is once in a while they body you on your own shit. See what I did there? Here's 10 of the best times it happened, with a few that just missed the cut.

    Eminem just wrapped up his much-talked about Monster Tour with Rihanna, but it seems he may not be taking a break anytime soon. A new trailer for "The Equalizer" film hit the net today, and in the closing moments it listed that Eminem's upcoming song, "Guts Over Fear" with Sia was scheduled to appear on a project called Shady XV. Beside the title are the words "Black Friday", which suggests the effort is set for a November release.

    10 Rappers Who Switched Their Style Up

    Superman isn't Superman if he inexplicably switches from superpowered do-gooder, to some sort of motorcycle-riding anti-hero, to maniacal villain, and back and forth between the extremes. Such mythology is a big part of the hip-hop culture, as well as proper marketing. Any marketing novice and comic book savant knows that consistency is key to building one's image/brand. A rapper who constantly switches up can lose a fan base or market, or even worse: he or she gets labeled as a fake for wearing different styles (there's nothing worse than not being real).

    J. Cole's address of white privilege on "Fire Squad" has consistently been misconstrued as an Eminem diss by fans and media alike. Cole has always been pretty vocal about his admiration for Shady, but he nevertheless took the chance to set the record straight in his recent interview with Angie Martinez.

    50 Crazy Eminem Verses
    Nov 19, 2013 at 12:46pm
    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.
