IllaDaProducer Explains The Origins Of The “Killshot”.


As I was buying a whole new bunch of Christmas presents for my team, I finally came to the “music gear”, and in the process of doing research, I stumbled across an extremely interesting video.  Eminem’s record-breaking diss track, “KILLSHOT,” was the final salvo in his late-summer feud with Machine Gun Kelly. The scorching song was a direct response to MGK’s own diss track, “Rap Devil,” which was in turn prompted by the shots Eminem took at the Cleveland rapper on “Not Alike.” Production on “KILLSHOT” is handled by IllaDaProducer, who also placed several tracks on Eminem’s most recent album, ‘Kamikaze.’ The Florida-based beatmaker spoke with Genius about creating the track on the latest episode of ‘Deconstructed.’  Check the method.

MGK Comes At Eminem?


Everyone is hearing about Eminem’s latest album ‘Kamikaze’ via social media, but it’s about to get a bit more live when they talk about people’s responses to it.  Machine Gun Kelly definitely has me as a fan, his wit and lyricism has to be recognized… BUT after him getting dissed by Em, he was a bit upset, and put out quite the diss to the aging rapper.  Em has gone up against the likes is Ja Rule, Brittney Spears, Christina Agulara, Will Smith, and a whole host of others.  It will be interesting to see what happens next. MGK’s “get the wedgie out your Dungarees” line was quite good, however, the rest is inflammatory.  Take a listen below, and sound off about what you think.

 

Eminem Is Back… Again (AGAIN).


It seems as if Em has taken the Beyonce route, and randomly released a brand new album titled “Kamikaze” out of the wild blue yonder.  The surprise album is getting a cascading effect of social media reviews a bit late, because no one really knew he was going to put it out.  That being said, there are some surprising tracks on the album including one from the ‘Venom’ movie sound track, but this is definitely one to check out.  Leave any comments you may have about this new release below.  And if you’d like to download it, just click here.

Dr Dre’s New Album Drops TOMORROW?


Dr-Dre

As previously reported, Dr. Dre has recorded an original soundtrack for the forthcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton. According to the film’s director F. Gary Gray, the OST contains new music from Dre and features contributions from Kendrick Lamar and Eminem, among others.  Now, in a interview with Philadelphia’s Power 99, Dre’s N.W.A. group mate Ice Cube has revealed the entire album will be dropping on August 1st.  “It’s mega, it’s Dr. Dre, it’s what everybody’s been waiting for,” Ice Cube explained. “It’s definitely a dope record, and he’s dropping it all on the same day.” He also confirmed the soundtrack contains new music from N.W.A.

Ice Cube was also asked about reports that N.W.A. would be reuniting for a reunion tour with Eminem filling in for the late Eazy-E. While both Dre and Eminem have disputed their involvement, Ice Cube told Power 99 that “We’ve definitely been talking about it. It’s just really about promotors coming to the table and we put together something that works for everybody. It’s definitely, definitely possible.”  Watch Ice Cube discuss Dre’s album and the possibility of N.W.A.’s possible reunion below.

Creed vs. Southpaw.

Seemingly in the tradition of Captain America taking on Ironman in Civil War, and Batman vs. Superman on the big screen, it seems as if another rivalry may be on the horizon in the hollywood box-office. Creed (above) features Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed (from the Rocky Balboa movies.) who is being trained by Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky.  When I heard the premise for the movie, it seemed quite a bit silly, or like Sly Stallone just needed another check.  But after watching the first trailer, my opinion was instantly turned around.  The dark and gritty semi-sequel is focused on the struggles of the young Creed, and honestly seems to be just a genuine attempt at a GOOD boxing movie, as apposed as a way to bring Rocky back to the big screen.  And IN THE BLUE CORNER!!! (sorry, I couldn’t help buy type that). Southpaw was originally intended to star rap icon Eminem, but he backed out in order to focus on the soundtrack.  When Jake Gyllenhaal (who’s name I still cannot spell without the help of Google) took his place after the movie Nightcrawler, people were a bit taken aback.  If you haven’t seen Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal’s character is a spindly, creepily skinny late night journalist.  But when the first shots of him in Southpaw emerged, he was massive.  I don’t even think Eminem would want to fight Gyllenhaal in that shape.  The film itself features an interesting original story, directed by Antoine Fuqua.  Sound off below as to which boxing flick YOU think will bring home the best for best boxing movie of the year.

A Look Back At The History Of One Of Hip Hop Hottest Songs.


003FCB_Eminem_037It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was in high school, and Eminem was all the rage.  His music was everywhere, he had a movie coming out, and every song he dropped seemed to be fire.  I remember hearing ‘Wangsta’ blaring from car speakers after school, and not realizing that 50 Cent (the same guy who made ‘How To Rob’, one of my favorite tracks ever) was in cahoots with Em.  However it does seem like a while ago since the last time I’ve heard one of their first collaborations, ‘Patiently Waiting’, until I start singing it, and I remember every single word.  There was just something about that changed many peoples minds about this dynamic duo, and Complex Magazine thinks so as well.  Below is a short “documentary” (Magnum Opus style) about the origins of this amazing song, and why the timing was so perfect.  Check the method.
