In an effort to continue his Justice or Else campaign, Minister Louis Farrakhan made a stop in the motor city and met up with none other then Marshall Mathers himself Eminem. The 2 have been talking for over a decade and they finally met for dinner in Detroit.
While in Detroit, Farrakhan spoke at the Fellowship Chapel church and says that he will continue to visit churches all around the country that will lead up to the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.
When Ross Capicchioni was 17, he was lured into a bad neighborhood in Detroit’s notorious east side, shot three times and left for dead. If Capicchioni had perished, his murder likely wouldn’t have filtered all the way up to us, it would have read, just another kid gunned down in a bad part of a big city.
Eminem earned 2 digital diamond awards for his “Not Afraid” and “Love The Way You Lie” singles.
“Love The Way You Lie,” which features Rihanna, is 11x platinum, while “Not Afraid” is 10 times platinum.
Eminem also has two albums that have sold more than 10 million units, 2000’s The Marshall Mathers LP and 2002’s The Eminem Show.
Spike Lee announced the music video for The Marshall Mathers LP 2 single “Headlights” will be released on Mother’s Day.
Lee expressed his excitement for what himself and Eminem created back in Eminem’s hometown of Detroit:
“I really love the narrative for what we’ve come up together for “Headlights”. It’s a great story. It’s heartfelt.
Some pain in it. But, that’s life and that’s why we’re here back in 8 Mile Detroit. Shooting where it all took place.”
