Despite rumours, Eminem is not ready to retire, he told MTV.
?When I know my next move, I?ll tell everyone my next move. I don?t know what I?m doing yet,? Eminem said.
Currently the mega-star rapper is on his Anger Management Tour, which stopped recently in his hometown of Detroit, which is when the rumours started swirling.
He was going to retire on September 17, his last tour date, in Ireland, according to reports. He was sick of the limelight, and he wanted to produce other artists, so the story went.
One day it will be true, he says. Maybe that “one day” will be September 17. Or maybe this is just a big publicity stunt.
?I know that I?m not gonna be rapping forever, I know that much,? he said. ?As long as I feel like I got the energy in me to do it, and the spirit, and I can do it, I?m gonna do it. I?m gonna always make music, whether I?m sittin? behind the boards and producing and making beats and puttin? other artists out there, or if I decide to do another tour or make another album.
Translation: Likely he is sick of the limelight (one more autograph and you’re asking for it) and wants to produce other artists for a change, and then if the creative light strikes him or he gets really angry at life, he?ll make another album. Or if he just want to make more millions, of course.
Waiting in the wings to take over Eminem?s rap-monopoly is his tourmate 50 Cent.
?The day he retires is the day you will see me all over MTV. I?ll be at the Movie Awards, I?ll be doing news. You?ll get sick of me,? 50 told MTV.
Eminem’s DJ and protege were on a tour bus that crashed and flipped over Wednesday night outside Missouri.
The crash triggered a six-vehicle pileup, according to MTV. A dozen people were seriously injured, but it appears Em’s DJ, Alchemist, and rapper Stat Quo, will be fine.
Stat Quo was treated and released from a hospital in Independence, Missouri. His manager, Joseph Fendrick, is still in the same hospital, listed in fair condition, reports MTV.
Alchemist is in another hospital, still being treated. His manager and brother, Neil Maman, is in the same hospital. Both are listed in good condition, according to MTV.
The bus was headed for Denver for a stop on the third Anger Management Tour. Neither Eminem nor 50 Cent were on the tour bus that crashed.
A Missouri Highway Patrol accident report indicated that the bus was going at a high speed and had to swerve to avoid a tractor-trailer. At least five other vehicles were involved in the crash, including a truck and two motorcycles.
No announcement had been made regarding the Anger Management Tour.
50 Cent will have few, if any, days off while on the Anger Management Tour.
Eminem will use those days to rest (or whatever it is he does when he’s not rapping), but 50 will fill them with extra tour dates with his G-Unit crew.
According to MTV, 50 is lining up more concert dates, with an official announcement and itinerary expected soon.
50 is currently shooting the movie “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” expected to wrap next week. He’ll miss the first two dates of the tour.
This will be the third Anger Management Tour.
So much for the truce called by 50 Cent and The Game a few months ago.
The Game did not hold back Sunday night at New York’s annual Summer Jam.
“F*** 50,” he told the crowd.
“I don’t follow suit like f—-t ass Yayo,” he said, a reference to G-Unit member Yayo. The Game then threw his G-Unit chain into the crowd, according to MTV.
He changed the lyrics to several of his songs to reflect his opinions of 50 Cent and his G-Unit posse.
The Game also chanted “G-U-NOT.”
But the highlight, MTV reports, was Jay-Z.
Jay-Z came on the stage during Kanye West’s set and performed “P.S.A.” and “Encore.”
Shutterbug James Alcorn, a New York Post photographer, is suing 50 Cent for $21 million, alleging that the rapper’s bodyguards beat him up in late August.
Alcorn was taking photos of 50 as he was leaving Jacob the Jeweler in Manhattan, and says that his seven bodyguards assaulted him, causing “severe and serious injuries.”
He is suing 50, as well as the bodyguards, and Interscope, Aftermath and Shady Records.
“No photographer should have what happened to me, happen to them,” he said in a statement.
