    In a new interview with the New York Times, Eminem stated his belief that hip hop is in a good place in 2015.

Here's what he had to say:

    Dr. Dre had one of the more memorable ice bucket challenges we've seen thus far, and the hip hop mogul decided to pass the task on to Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem. We saw K.Dot's video earlier in the week, and now Eminem has taken the plunge-- on stage at The Monster Tour no less. That's right, Em got the very special honor of having Rihanna douse him in ice water, for which he quickly returned the favor. From the footage we've seen, it's not clear who the two stars have challenged, but chances are they've picked some high profile candidates.

    Fifteen years of Shady Records represents an unusual time for rap music, transitioning out of the shiny suit era and into a bubble featuring new names. Aside from D12 and Obie Trice releases, the label’s existence was mostly tied to Eminem signing a certain Queens MC.

    This weekend Eminem made history by becoming the very first rapper to headline Wembley stadium. In fact, he performed two sold out dates in a row at the 90,000-capacity venue, and he made sure to bring some friends along for the ride. The biggest news from the show was Dr. Dre's surprise appearance, showing up to perform a medley of hits, including "Still D.R.E.," "Next Episode," "Nuthin’ But A G Thang" and “Forgot About Dre." The stadium show also boasted opening slots from fellow Detroit rapper, Danny Brown, and students of Em's early horrorcore records, Odd Future.

    After Yelawolf’s first major-label album Radioactive proved to be, well, just that; and failed to meet the standards set by his 2010 mixtape Trunk Muzik, it felt as though - with his second effort Love Story - an explanation or apology was due. He seemingly traded in his trademark mud-coated country roots for pop-pandering.

    Kendrick Lamar is gearing up to release the sequel to his debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, as you well know. With the release of the untitled album’s first single (or rather "statement") “i” this Tuesday putting everyone in a frenzy, it’s only a matter of time until we get the full product. While Kendrick is a lyrical and creative genius who looks to be a mainstay in hip-hop for years to come, the bar has been set high for his second album.

    Fabolous' latest giveaway is not your average freestyle--it was a major statement. Most rappers, wisely, would shy away from such a beat--"Shook Ones", the lead off Mobb Deep's legendary The Infamous. But Fabo gave it a good shot. The best? You decide.

    Rappers name-drop celebrities all the time. Whether making comparisons about their own skills, referencing films, weaving together careful similes, or just being thirsty, MCs have been shouting out other pop culture entities for as long as we can remember. What's much more uncommon is the celebrities in question hearing the shout outs, and then responding.

    On paper, recording a song for a film soundtrack is considered the ultimate form of selling out. The music itself is literally used as promotional material for a larger product. Music money is big, but movie money is on another level (ask Ludacris, who hasn't released an album since "Fast Five"). That being said, let's remove the negative stigma generally associated with the term "selling out" and call soundtrack inclusions what they really are: a honing in on a given artist's particular skill set to create something universally appealing to an established fan base.
