MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Southpaw’ Can’t Land A Punch

Film: Southpaw
Starring: Jake Gyllenhall
Directed by: Antoine Fuqua

Despite two incredible fights that serve as bookends to the story, Southpaw is a messy boxing film that never quite finds its groove.

There are very few story elements at play in Southpaw that you haven’t seen at least a few times before, typically in other films about boxing. It’s the story of a one-time sports hero, Billy Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal), who loses himself in a world of depression and rage following the loss of his wife (Rachel McAdams) in the film’s first act. As his spiral continues, the lavish lifestyle …


New Music: Eminem – “Phenomenal”

Today is a good day. Why? It’s simple: Eminem‘s contribution to the Southpaw soundtrack, “Phenomenal,” is finally here.

Having been teased through a series of short clips that found their way online earlier in the year, “Phenomenal” is the latest in a string of single releases from the Detroit native that have come from places other than a new LP. There is a bit of sadness in that fact, as it has been nearly two years since Em’s last studio album, but thankfully “Phenomenal” is a track that earns its promising title.

Both inspiring and typically dark, “Phenomenal” is …

UTG LIST: The 8 Most Out-Of-This-World Tech N9ne Collaborations

Tech N9ne dropped his prolific and genre-pushing new LP, Special Effects, yesterday — proving this tenured rapper’s best work is still ahead of him. The record is frantic and transparent on tracks like “Aw Yeah? (Intervention),” belligerent and obscure on songs like “Hood Go Crazy,” and downright strange on songs like “Roadkill.”

One thing the record does not fall short on are guest spots. Tech, the entrepreneur and co-founder of Strange Music, enlisted the likes of Eminem, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Lil Wayne, E-40, T.I., B.o.B., Hopsin, and many others on Special Effects. So, that leads to the …


Republican Presidential Candidate Has Gospel Choir Cover Eminem At Campaign Kick-Off

Detroit native Ben Carson threw his name in the pot yesterday amongst many others in running for the next President of the United States.

Unlike Hilary Clinton, who announced via Twitter, or Ted Cruz…who probably did something insane, Carson tapped a gospel choir to cover Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” during his kick-off party.

Another too-little-too-late approach from the GOP to reach people who are under 40 and make under 50 grand a year? Probably. At least he’s attempting to tap into the youth at the beginning, and not haphazardly as he sprints toward the finish of the Iowa Caucus.

Carson, the …

HOLY SH!T: Tech N9ne And Corey Taylor (Slipknot) Drop Mind-Blowing Track

So Tech N9ne isn’t holding anything back with guest spots on his upcoming LP, Special Effects. Songs have already surfaced featuring Eminem, B.O.B. and 2 Chainz — with the tracks featuring spots from T.I, Hopsin, Lil Wayne and many others slated to appear on the record, which drops next Tuesday.

But none compare to “Wither,” the track that premiered yesterday via Loudwire, with Tech alongside Slipknot’s Corey Taylor. The composition of the song comes across as a best-of-both-worlds, with Tech’s rhythmic, frantic rapping fused alongside the occult drum patterns synonymous with Slipknot.

Taylor is brash and emotional, while …

NEW EMINEM: Slaughterhouse And Yelawolf Join Slim On “Psychopath Killer”

Eminem dropped a new track yesterday from his upcoming release Shady XV, featuring Slaughterhouse and Alabama’s own Yelawolf.

Mr. Mathers has been making headlines seemingly every day for the past few weeks, whether for jabs at Lana Del Rey or Iggy Azalea. But for as long as he keeps coming out with fire tracks, the primary task at hand should be giving them a listen regardless of your stance on his controversial lyricism.

Shady XV is set to come out this Monday, November 24, just one year following his return to the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 …

Listen To Like Vultures’ Cover Of “The Monster” By Eminem

Last week Like Vultures released their new EP, titled Win Some X Lose Some. It seems that at some point during their recording process they took some time to record an additional song, which happens to be a cover and is not a part of the EP. The cover they recorded, and have just released, is Eminem & Rihanna‘s “The Monster.” It’s available to stream beneath the break.

Their singer might not hit as high of notes as Rihanna, but it’s still a pretty solid cover song. If you dig it, be sure to pick up a copy …

Eminem Announces New Album, Streams ‘The Equalizer’ Soundtrack Single Feat. Sia

It seems rap legend Eminem has been pretty busy lately. After finishing ‘The Monster Tour‘ with Rihanna, the 7-time VMA nominee took home the award for “Best Editing” with his music video for “Rap God” at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards.
