He's been called...

That's not to say the (weirdest) member of Funk Volume hasn't kept himself busy. He was heavily promoting himself for a spot on the XXL Freshmen list, and it worked to his benefit, as he was named the People's Champ on this year's list. In addition,...

    The auto-tune wars rage on. T-Pain caused a stir a few months back when he seemingly dissed Future, smugly labeling him the "New T-Pain" and suggesting that the Pluto rapper had woken up in "the old T-Pain's Bugatti." The "All I Do Is Win" hookman then clarified that while he did have respect for Future's songwriting, his issue with the rapper was that he did not use auto-tune properly. In a...

    Eminem's new album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, may not have been what everyone expected.
