G: How has the industry changed since you first began? Do you think Hip Hop is dead or was it never gone to begin with?


"J: Hip Hop is SO alive right now. It never left, nor did it die and resurrect! Everything that evolves goes through a state of unrest, then slumber-not death, to re-awaken as something more! Something better-the best of all it was in addition to the deletion of the defect. Okay the industry answer: the people with the money stopped investing in the "classic" Hip Hop, or the aspect of the music genre based on lyrical content. Whether gangster or socially conscious, they worked to destroy music that would cause you to use your brain to enjoy. 


We're still making that music. But you have to dig to find it. Also, the masses "believe" in the media. So if the major sponsors, TV and radio stations don't promote you, you're not "hot". In the beginning with Hip Hop it was the ear-to-the-brain that told the story. Meaning, it was word-of-mouth and individual judgement by listening to the music itself. I got so much more. I'm working to keep my answers brief. I can write a book on each question. Let's not leave out the intervention of the world wide web! "

 Shady's Ether-worthy, anti-Trump freestyle has set the Hip Hop world ablaze


Marshall "Eminem" "Slim Shady" Mathers is no stranger to controversy. Last night's performance was a prime example of that. 


In a 4-minute freestyle filled with the trademark angst that only he can deliver, Shady wrecked total havoc on President Trump, with lyrics like, "But we better give Obama props/ Cause what we've got in office now's/ A kamikaze that'll probably cause a nuclear holocaust". 


Shady continued his wrath, addressing topics spanning from white supremacy, to immigration and corruption, to natural disasters and gun control. The Detroit native also touched on additional topics such as Trump's wall on the Mexican border, the Nazi protest in Charlottesville, and Colin Kaepernick. 


Shady concluded his tirade by addressing his fans: "And any fan of mine who's a supporter of his/ I'm drawing in the sand a line/ You're either for or against/ And if you can't decide who you like more and you're split/ On who you should stand beside/ I'll do it for you with this. Before exiting, Eminem raised countless eyebrows by angrily uttering the words "F**k Trump". With so many unexpected surprises, one can only wonder what next year will bring.
