The 2014 BET Hip-Hop Awards have potential to include some classic cyphers. This year’s contenders include David Banner, Treach, Remy Ma, T-Rex, and Tsu Surf.

Eminem's new "SHADY CXVPHER" has attracted a fair amount of attention since hitting the web yesterday, namely because Em is still one of the biggest rappers in the game, and pretty much anything he does is going to get an insane number of eyeballs.

Eminem Performs "Fack" For The First Time In Brazil Mar 13, 2016 at 06:48pm
Marshall Mathers has made too many great songs to name. "Fack" is not one of them. Though, in all fairness, it's certainly something that could've only come from the mind of Eminem. Most of the track sounds like Em maniacally repeating a certain gay slur, and the rest of it is incredibly vulgar, as Em raps about ass play involving gerbils amid multiple audible orgasms.

Eminem Turned Down A Leading Film Role Because It Wasn't Shot In Detroit Jul 18, 2013 at 07:54pm
It seems Eminem turned down a leading role in the upcoming Hollywood science fiction film "Elysium" because his native city of Detroit wasn't chosen as the film's primary location. The lead role was instead given to Matt Damon, who was actually director Neil Blomkamp’s third choice. South African rapper Ninja of Die Antwoord (who was Blomkamp’s first choice) also turned down the role due to its location. Marshall is in no rush to return to Hollywood, though, as he made clear in a recent interview with Rap Fix.
