Rich Lee has created an inspirational visual to go with the equally inspirational sounds of “Lighters,” the Bruno Mars-assisted single from Bad Meets Evil- Hell: The Sequel. Eminem and Royce da 5’9 take it back in time, reminiscing on their come-up; Em with his blonde hair and Royce writing rhymes behind bars.
Bruno is doing what he does best: singing in front of a piano.
Sidenote: How the hell does Bruno get his hair to stand up like that?! Watch below:

Today was the first day of Sway in the Morning, MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway’s first radio show on Sirius XM Radio. The jam packed show included lots of good music and a cameo from Eminem who owns XM channel Shade 45, Sway’s radio home:
“You played such a vital part in my career and such a big role in hip-hop, we’re just happy to have you.”
After asking Em to freestyle ( “It might be dial tone,” Em replied), Sway played his first interview with Eminem after he first signed with Dr. Dre.
Sway also played a portion of an interview with the legendary Tupac Shakur on the set of the “How Do You Want It” video. Pac talks about California and the east/west coast:
“I felt like whatever I am, the Bay Area had something to do with making. So if I’m bad, they had something to do with making me. If I’m good, then they had something to do with making me. Between the East Coast, the Bay Area, L.A. and Baltimore, those places made me.”
Sway reflected on his first show with his MTV family afterwards: “All in all, it was good. We played a lot of hip-hop music and made a good relationship [with the listeners]. I’m going to try to tie in all of these worlds: MTV, Shade 45, pop, politics, culture, music, all of that. At the end of the day, that’s the vision for the show.”
Sounds like a quality radio show to me!
Skylar Grey has truly been on the come up since collaborating with some of the biggest names in the game such as Lupe Fiasco, Dirty Money and Eminem. She now takes the lead in her own video for “Dance Without You”. Inside a hospital room Skylar sings:
“So insecure, so uptight. I break my neck, to be polite,”
The video is expressive of Skylar shedding her former self and coming into her own. Watch below.
Eminem is an artist who has been groundbreaking and record-setting since he first came on to the scene. He can now add another record to his lucrative lists of accomplishments. Eminem has now become the very first artist to sell 1 million digital albums. His comeback album Recovery has crossed that threshold shortly after the debut of Hell: The Sequel collaboration EP with Royce da 5’9, which grabbed the #1 spot. Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg says:
“We are thrilled to congratulate Eminem on the history-making digital sales success of Recovery. Over the years we’ve made a concerted effort to engage Em’s online fan base so this achievement is especially rewarding. Eminem made an amazing album with Recovery and the fans responded in record numbers.”
The fans sure did! Congrats to Em and all his success.
Eminem has finally released the video for SpaceBound which stars porn star Sasha Grey. The fourth single from his top selling album Recovery, this emotionally charged song shows Em shooting himself towards the end of the video only to retrace his steps back to were he began.
