He told Elton John he wrote 'The Storm' ahead of his performance.
The definition of a freestyle rap is a (mostly) improvised performance, which means that Eminem's anti-Trump song 'The Storm' isn't quite as 'freestyle' as his fans liked to think. In an interview with Elton John, he admits he wrote the verses beforehand, but we still think it was an important moment.

When Eminem dropped his politically charged rap verse at the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher, it stunned audiences for the intelligence behind the lyrics and the sheer direct anger towards the American government. He opened up about the song to Elton John in Interview Magazine.

Sir Elton John says seeing Eminem perform live in person was like watching Sir Mick Jagger fronting the Rolling Stones.
The iconic 'Rocket Man' singer collaborated with the 45-year-old rapper - whose real name is Marshall Mathers III - on his hit single 'Stan' at the Grammy Awards in 2001, and he was left in awe of the star, and he has likened the performance to seeing the Rolling Stones band member wow crowds.
Speaking to Eminem for Interview magazine, Elton said: ''I was just mesmerized by you and your performance; it made the hairs on the back of my arms stand up.

The critically-acclaimed rapper has made his return to music.
'Saturday Night Live' welcomed Eminem to the show this weekend as their musical guest, with the rapper joining forces with Skylar Grey to perform a medley of his new track 'Walk On Water', as well as two of his greatest hits; 'Stan', and 'Love The Way You Lie'. All three songs were performed together as part of a medley.
Whilst it was quite the moving and emotional performance that included a tribute to Eminem's late best friend Proof, aka DeShaun Holton, it was one that audio engineers were forced to bleep many words out of, really taking viewers out of the moment whenever they were made to do so. At this point, most people who tune into 'SNL' would know exactly what Eminem is all about, so it would have been nice to see the performance without all of the constant muting.

Meanwhile, Eminem has no idea why he landed his Best Hip Hop award.
The 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards took place over the weekend, with some stellar performers and some very well-deserved award recipients. Shawn Mendes was the big winner of the night, taking home four gongs in total and playing his winning single 'There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back' live.

As well as landing Best Song for the third single of his number one second album 'Illuminate', the 19-year-old singer-songwriter also landed Best Artist, Biggest Fans and Best Canadian Act at the award ceremony last night (November 12th 2017), held at the SSE Wembley Arena in London. It appears he's the only nominee of the night to take home multiple awards.

The rapper wins his case for unlawful use of 'Lose Yourself'.
Eminem and his associates have been awarded thousands in damages after filing a lawsuit against the New Zealand National Party for their unlicensed use of a variation of his hit song 'Lose Yourself', which appeared in his 2002 Academy Award winning movie '8 Mile'.

The High Court has awarded $600,000 to Eight Mile Style which published the song, the fee being the 'hypothetical licence fee' since 2014 if they had been given permission to use the song for their advertising. The political party were found to have breached copyright on three counts according to the New Zealand Herald: 'by communicating a copy of Lose Yourself to the public without a licence, by authorising the copying, and authorising the use of the advertisements'.
The rapper slams the President in BET Awards rap.
Eminem has just dropped an epic freestyle rap attacking President Donald Trump for everything from his NFL anger to his plans to build a wall to keep out immigrants. The clip was shown at the BET Awards last night, from a parking lot on Detroit, Michigan.
Eminem at 'Southpaw' premiere
One of the main highlights of last night's (October 10th 2017) BET Awards was Eminem's freestyle 'The Storm'. He proved that he's still a legend in the rap game, and an important figure for speaking out on political issues in the music industry.

Former Tory Work and Pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith borrowed Em's 2002 hit 'Lose Yourself' to take a shot at Diane Abbott during his appearance on 'This Morning'.
In one of the most unlikely political put-downs of this – or any – general election, former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith has borrowed some lyrics from the rapper Eminem in order to mock Labour’s Diane Abbott on television.
Duncan Smith, who was the Tory party leader for two years from 2001 to 2003, appeared on ITV’s ‘Good Morning Britain’ alongside Labour’s Chuka Umunna on Monday morning (May 8th), when he ripped into Umunna’s colleague Diane Abbott, who had made an error-strewn radio interview last week.

A blast of ‘Loose Yourself’ could boost your athletic performance.
If you’re looking to improve your athletic performance then you might want to load up your iPod with some Eminem before hitting the gym. A study by Hartpury University Centre, in Gloucestershire has found that listening to the rapper’s music has the ability to boost an athlete’s performance by 10%.
Eminem’s music has been proven to make you run faster.
Researchers at the uiversity studied the physiological effects of different styles of music on British swimmer Ben Hooper, before his 2,000-mile Atlantic swim in December. They found that when Hooper was listening to tracks by the Detroit rapper he felt less tired and more alert.
Southpaw, a film directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Jake Gyllenhall that tells the story of a boxer who tries to get his life and career back on track, features a soundtrack executively produced by Eminem. Released through Shady Records, and featuring new music from Shady himself, as well as some Bad Meets Evil cuts and tracks from Slaughterhouse, Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ amongst others. This is the second soundtrack release by Shady Records, the first, obviously, being 8 Mile, and it's a markedly different sound; it fits the film's theme with its triumphant, powerful and energetic hip-hop soundtrack.
Kings Never Die, which features Gwen Stefani and is produced by DJ Khalil, is an emphatic track from Eminem. It follows Cry For Love (Part 1), composed by James Horner who scored the film and sadly died in June this year in a plane crash. Shady's staccato flow over the strikingly polished production is delivered excellently; the track isn't especially raw or gritty, but the pride and the passion on show lend themselves both to the sport of boxing, and the sport of rap. The following track Beast, by Rob Bailey & The Hustle Standard, featuring talented lyricists Busta Rhymes, KXNG Crooked and Tech N9ne, is a high octane ride, with convincingly decisive flows from each MC.
The crisp What About The Rest Of Us, by Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ and featuring the talented singer/producer Rico Love, is successful. The punchy live drum sound and the overall subtlety in the production of the track make it professional and enjoyable, and Action and Joey bring that authentic east coast flavour. Slaughterhouse most definitely turn up for R.N.S. A dramatic and intense slow-paced Araab Muzik and Just Blaze production backs the supergroup, comprised of Royce Da 5'9", KXNG Crooked, Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz, as they drop passionate verses demonstrating a variety of flows and impactful deliveries.

'Compton: A Soundtrack' was released on August 7th, and all proceeds will be going towards a facility in Dre and N.W.A.'s hometown.
Dr Dre has announced that he’ll be donating all the royalties from his newly released album Compton to help fund a new performing arts centre in his hometown of Compton, California.
The news was unveiled on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 programme on Thursday (August 6th), the eve of the release of Dre’s first album in 16 years, called Compton: A Soundtrack, which features music inspired by the new N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton which is out on August 14th.

Dr Dre has finally announced he’s releasing a new album, his first in 16 years. Speaking on his 'The Pharmacy' show on Apple Music, Dre revealed the record was titled Compton: A Soundtrack and will hit iTunes and Apple Music on August 7th.
Dre Dre has announced new album, Compton: A Soundtrack.
The album is not a soundtrack to upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, but has instead been inspired by the film, which will hit cinemas on August 14th. The 16 track album will feature guest appearances by Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg and The Game.
The rapper hinted that his former N.W.A. colleague Dre might finally be releasing his third album on Saturday.
Surprise albums are becoming increasingly common in 2015, to the point where they’re failing to have the desired impact any more. Even so, there were many eyebrows raised on Wednesday as rapper Ice Cube mentioned that Dr Dre would be releasing a new album over the weekend.
The 46 year old former N.W.A. star was talking to Philadelphia radio station Power 99 today (July 29th) about the forthcoming biopic about the legendary rap group Straight Outta Compton, which arrives on August 14th, when he dropped the bombshell that a new album, featuring original material by Dre and others inspired by the movie, would be arriving this Saturday (August 1st).

The singer believes that being able to change his parents' lives makes it all worth it.
He may be one of the biggest pop stars of the moment, but it's not the money, or the awards, or even the screaming fans that make the climb to the top worth all the hard work. Rather, Ed Sheeran says the biggest reward of fame is his ability to change his parents' lives for the better.

Yelawolf's journey and evolution has certainly been fascinating if nothing else. Going from absolute bangers like 'Daddy's Lambo' and 'Pop The Trunk', which marked the start of his Interscope affiliation back in 2010, to signing to Shady Records in 2011, this Alabama spitter sticks out from the rest of hip-hop like a sore thumb. With rock and country influences always being a part of his sound, as well as blistering rapid-fire flows and confident deliveries, the partnership with Eminem is one that makes sense, and 'Love Story' is his second album released through the label, following 2011's 'Radioactive'.
The album starts off with 'Outer Space'; an energetic, guitar driven tune which culminates in a funky, oddly trippy refrain. Yela is certainly making a statement with this opener, as it's nothing like what I was expecting, although he's very far away from the kind of impact 'Trunk Muzik 0-60' had when I first heard that project. 'Change' and 'American You' continue this unprecedented shift in direction for Yelawolf, with the 35-year-old demonstrating his vocal abilities. Yelawolf can sing, and his tone suits the electronic country vibe, as is exemplified on 'Whiskey In A Bottle', although the lyrical content occasionally comes across slightly cliché and preachy, which is a shame as Yela is often at his best when he's being heartfelt and passionate. I can't help but blame the mainstream country vibe for contributing to this.
'Til It's Gone' is the first track on 'Love Story' to bridge the aggressive nature of Yela's rapping with a convincing, catchy hook that doesn't sound out of place. He spits about the pitfalls of, and his struggles with, fame over a subtle, upbeat Will Power instrumental with intent. 'Best Friend', featuring Shady Records head honcho Eminem, is the only track with a guest appearance. Yela and Em both have a history of honest, personal lyricism combined with amped-up deliveries and quick MCing, and this is what I was hoping for with this track. Instead, it's disjointed, with no rapping from the Alabama spitter; instead we get Yelawolf's spiritual crooning for two verses, before Marshall Mathers contributes a lengthy, aggressive verse, which although does occasionally slip into a more emotional theme, for the most part feels out of place, no matter how technically good it may be.

Having released just two albums, the British megastar has become just the second artist in history to reach the landmark figure.
The records just keep tumbling for Ed Sheeran! At the very start of the year he was named as the most streamed artist of 2014, and now he’s achieved another landmark.
Spotify have announced that he is the first British artist to reach two billion streams, and only the second to do so in the streaming service’s history behind Eminem. That’s only on the back of two studio albums, however, whereas the American rapper has released eight. The company also announced that his track ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is the most streamed song in the United States.

There's half of a great satire here, as Seth Rogen, James Franco and Evan Goldberg combine that freewheeling mayhem from This Is the End with some more pointed political comedy. But in its second half, the script begins to repeat its less-funny jokes, wallowing in smutty gags and excessive violence. These things may please the chuckleheads in the audience, but they wear everyone else out. And they make us work to see the film's much more enjoyable brom-com plot and sharp social commentary.
The story is centred around swaggering TV personality Dave Skylark (Franco), whose chat show majors in shocking celebrity revelations like Eminem's homosexuality or Rob Lowe's baldness. Dave's producer Aaron (Rogen) is feeling like a second-class newsmaker when he discovers that North Korean despot Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) is a fan of Dave's show and is willing to be interviewed live on camera. Then before they can head off, two CIA operatives (Lizzy Caplan and Reese Alexander) convince Dave and Aaron to assassinate Kim with a deadly drug. And when they arrive in Pongyang their mission is complicated when Aaron falls for Kim's media director Sook (Diana Bang) and Dave falls for Kim himself.
Yes, the film has a fairly standard romantic-comedy structure, as Dave and Aaron's close friendship is strained to the breaking point by the arrival of another man. Virtually all of the dialogue is infused with gay innuendo, double entendres and full-on sex jokes. Some of this is genuinely hilarious, such as the first time Dave and Kim discover their mutual love of Katy Perry's Firework. Then that joke is brought back four or five times, so by the end it's not even mildly amusing. Pretty much every gag in the film is beaten to death, even the ones that weren't funny to begin with. Thankfully, the actors' energy never flags.
