For almost 20 years, Eminem and Elton John have been one of pop's oddest couples, seemingly polar opposites who first joined forces in a show of anti-homophobic solidarity at the Grammy Awards in 2001.
Hip-hop star 2 Chainz expressed his dissatisfaction on social media by posting an angry-faced emoji when the tune he recorded with Eminem back in July (17) didn't feature on the track list for new album Revival the Without Me star released on Tuesday (05Dec17). The performance came at the height of an Eminem backlash where the rapper was being accused of homophobia.
"There are ups and downs", Em told John for Interview Magazine. I haven't had a ideal career.More news: Noteworthy Buzzers: WPCS International Incorporated (WPCS), Vornado Realty Trust (VNO)

Telling John that the subject matter of the aforementioned freestyle was something that he was "definitely very passionate about", Eminem said it was "about having the right to stand up to oppression". "I mean, that's exactly what the people in the military and the people who have given their lives for this country have fought for - for everybody to have a voice and to protest injustices and speak out against s- that's wrong". Projected onto the sides of multiple buildings in the Detroit area, including Michigan Central Station, the typeface of the album's title that we've already seen several times in public was positioned in front of an American flag backdrop, giving the image a decidedly political edge to it.
At the time, he explained: "They want you to redo a hook that Em said and maybe some ad-libs". It's a reflection of where I'm at right now, but also I feel like what I tried to do was diversify. He knows what he's doing. In hindsight, waiting was probably better because eventually we got Shady Records and were able to sign them to it.More news: Hope Solo running for US Soccer president
