2014, just like 2013, continues to be the year of Pharrell. And Beyoncé.
Busta Rhymes gave his MC name a new meaning upon first hearing Eminem.
The first thing you should think of when you hear Eminem and Busta Rhymes’ new track, “Calm Down,” is House of Pain. But the rapper, Genesis LXG would like us all to know, the duo really stole that appropriating horn-looping beat from him.
For his new song with Busta Rhymes, it’s more of the same for Eminem.
Busta Rhymes is hopping on all the biggest platforms he can find to announce his comeback.
A snippet of the song plays underneath intense scenes from the movie, which finds Denzel Washington playing a man who inadvertently takes on the Russian mafia.
Like so many years before this, fans will have to make some tough decision when it comes to who they want to see at any given time across all eight stages throughout the three-day festival.
Released today, the clip gives more of a visual peek into the two’s rocky relationship, complementing the story that had already been told in the song itself.
Eminem was recently announced as the first rapper to headline London’s famed Wembley Stadium, with ticket demand for the event being so high that a second show at the 90,000-capacity venue has been added.
It’s also his first show in London in well over a decade.
Eminem is giving rappers all over the world one shot to seize everything they ever wanted with his new rap battle competition league, Total Slaughter, which will hold its first event this summer in New York City.
The 13th annual festival will also feature performances from Lorde (she’ll perform only on weekend two), Zedd, CHVRCHES, Iggy Azalea, Icona Pop, Sam Smith, Lana Del Rey, Foster The People and The Replacements.
The full lineup for the festival will be revealed April 22, as will Shady’s announcement.
