Watch as Eminem turns from meer mortal into a full blown God in his music video for "Rap God". This six minute track off of Marshall Mathers LP 2 lists all the reasons he is still considered to be a rap legend, all while defacing the names of new rappers that are claiming to be gods themselves. Check out the video and let us know how you feel about it.
It's like it's the early 2000's again with Eminem filling recent headlines. Now his Oscar winning smash hit "Lose Yourself," from the iconic movie 8 Mile, has gone through a slight Hick-Hop makeover thanks to Taylor Swift, who covered the song when she stopped by Pittsburgh radio station, Froggy. Armed with her acoustic guitar, T.Swift lays down some rap bars and adds in some country vibes to the chorus.
The track is already a hit! Maybe she will make an extended version? hopefully!

The 2013 MTV EMA’s proved to be an out of this world night full of awesome, gif-worthy moments, killer performances, and cheery celebs. Redfoo kept the space party pumping all night as the show’s host. He stripped off his suit and slipped into his most comfortable attire (a shiny, tiny speedo), and later in the show managed to stage dive into the crowd. Miley lit up a joint on stage. Will Ferrell made an appearance as the infamous Ron Burgundy and provided laughs and awkward backstage interviews with celebrities. Eminem took home the Global Icon Award and reminded us why he is a “rap god.” But the performances are what really made the night an unforgettable one.

If you guys don't remember MMLP was the first album that really brought Eminem into the mainstream light, with tracks like "Stan", "The Real Slim Shady", and "The Way I Am". Since then Eminem has had his personal ups and downs, which have been relative to his musical successes and woes. But nonetheless, Eminem is one of rap's all-stars and there is no doubting his empicable lyricism. "Marshall Mathers LP 2" will be executive produced by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin, so you can only expect greatness.
Last night, MTV's annual Video Music Awards went down in no other than Brooklyn, New York at the new Barclays Center. With a theme based around the history and culture of the infamous borough, this award show was definitely something to see.
The show kicked off immediately with a performance by Lady Gaga. At this point no one is surprised by here unusual outfits, which she switched seamlessly throughout her performance of "Applause".
If our interview with Cosmic Gate and raw footage of their show wasn't enough, we also managed to speak with the powerhouse herself, Emma Hewitt. Both Emma and her brother/manager, Anthony, were absolutely the most pleasant people we've met. This was the first time Joonbug has spoken with Emma, so we asked a few questions about how she got her career started, and what brought her to trance. Of course, we couldn't help but to also ask what it's like touring with Cosmic Gate themselves. It was an honor that she took some time to answer our questions 20 minutes before going on stage, so let us know what you think!
