This is the first ever post by me, Chris, King of the Music Help Web universe. I’m actually a big fan of democracy so for now you can call me the President of Pop Music. Anywho, this is where you can find regular updates on what’s going on in the world of music. As my venture into the world of bloggin’ continues you can be sure look forward to updates on a regular basis.
Coming this Monday will be the first MIXTAPE MONDAY. Each Monday you can come here and find out about the hottest, must-have mixtapes in the underground hip-hop world. Let Music Help Web guide you through the complicated world of the mixtape, and lead you to ultimate lyrical nirvana.
Oh but this blog isn’t just about hip-hop, it’s about all music. We’ll take on all things music from rap to rock and even a little bit of country.
Without further ado…. Today’s whammy by far goes to Marshall Mathers or for those of you not big on hip-hop, Eminem.
Unfortuantely, the love sick Marshall Mathers (Eminem) and now twice ex-wife Kim are splitting after Marshall filed for divorce on Wednesday. Their second marriage lasted less than 90 days. As we have come to find out through Eminem’s music, Kim Mathers isn’t the kind of woman to just go into the night quietly, and she was ready to give her side of the story right away.
Kim called the popular Detroit radio show Mojo in the Morning on Thursday, just one day after the divorce was announced and said, “I was hoping we could go to counseling and work things out, but he sent an attorney to my house with papers and said that [Marshall] filed for divorce.” She went on to say that Em hadn’t spoken with her over a month.
Kim also talked about how Marshall has fallen back into his old drug addiction, an addiction that she herself has experienced: “I see him doing a lot of the same things I did when I had my problem. I see exactly the same pattern that I was falling in.” Just last year, Eminem checked himself into a drug rehab center for an addiction to sleeping pills.
However, Eminem’s camp didn’t hesitate to respond to Kim’s allegations. According to the same site, Eminem responded by email, “…a few of Kim’s statements in the interview this morning need to be addressed. First, her allegations regarding my status post-rehab are both untrue and unfortunate. Second, she was aware that I was filing for divorce. We both tried to give our marriage another chance and quickly realized that a wedding doesn’t fix the underlying problems.”
Eminem has in recent months claimed he was done making music himself in order to focus on production of other artists. A contingent of rap fans that felt that Eminemâ€™s last album, Encore, was mediocre. Some critics feel that as Eminemâ€™s fame and money have grown, he has lost things to rap about — his edge.
Could this most recent development between Marshall and Kim light a fire under this once great rapperâ€™s ass and motivate the old Em to get back in the studio? Rap fans hope that the Eminem from The Marshall Mathers LP comes back and records another classic.
