Justin Bieber Slams Eminem and Says "Doesn’t Understand" Modern Rap

Justin Bieber Slams Eminem and Says “Doesn’t Understand” Modern Rap: Justin Bieber has beefed with everyone from 15-year-old Jojo Siwa to Bill Clinton, and Eminem is perpetually feuding with the world, so together, they’re a lethal combination. We’ll soon find out what a Bieber-Eminem feud looks like, because Bieber has some feelings about Eminem’s feelings towards today’s hip-hop world.

“I just like Em’s flow but don’t like that he’s dissing new rappers” he wrote on his Instagram story, according to Consequence of Sound. “I like the new generation of rap he just doesn’t understand it.”

Biebs is referring to the lines on “The Ringer,” the opening diss track of Eminem’s most recent album Kamikaze, when the Detroit artist takes shots at just about every rap newcomer, comparing them to those he respects, as well as the flow-ambivalent style of hip-hop known as “mumble-rap” more generally. Eminem raps:

“So finger-bang, chicken wang, MGK, Iggy ‘Zae/ Lil’ Pump, Lil’ Xan imitate Lil’ Wayne/ I should aim at everybody in the game, pick a name.”

He continues:

“I heard your mumblin’ but it’s jumbled in mumbo jumbo/ The era that I’m from will pummel you, that’s what it’s coming to/ What the f*ck you’re gonna do when you run into it?/ I’m gonna crumble you and I’ll take a number two/ And dump on you, if you ain’t Joyner/ If you ain’t Kendrick or Cole or Sean, then you’re a goner.”

Eminem actually makes a half-hearted “no offense” on “The Ringer,” saying he can “see why people like Lil’ Yachty, but not me though/ Not even dissin’, it just ain’t for me.” Hm, but you can’t really imply you’d like to take a dump on someone and then simply say “no offense,” can you?

Bieber might have a point that Eminem’s out of touch. However, neither the “Baby, Baby” singer nor Eminem really has much to do with what’s going on in hip-hop these days. After a long emotional post he made on Instagram, some are speculating that Justin Bieber might already be regretting getting into it with Eminem, after facing criticisms that he’s, perhaps, not an appropriate spokesperson for hip-hop.

He posted, “Don’t stop fighting the battle has already won.. fight for what you love and who you love don’t let fear and anxiety win..god has not given us a spirit of fear but of power love and of a sound mind! I havent believed the truth about myself I haven’t believed I am loved I haven’t believed I am forgiven it’s a hard thing for me to wrap my head around. I hang my head in shame and I wallow in sadnes about the the people who have betrayed me. Jesus has given me freedom and the persuit of getting to know his character is never ending. Gods character never changes he is the same yesterday now and forever. He is always good!. I won’t be afraid to be vulnerable before him.. his power is made strong in our weakness. God isn’t afraid of your pain and your brokenness he actually welcomes it. Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest! these are words from Jesus! There is hope and it’s in him.!! He loves and cares for you! For god so loved the world that he gave his only son so that whoever believes him wont die but have eternal life! You are that whoever and he accepts you as you are!! He loves and forgives you and welcomes you into his arms every time you mess He is a perfect and loving god who adores you!”

Unfortunately, if history has taught us anything about Eminem, he’ll fire back at Biebs. Sit back, grab some popcorn and get ready to watch a fun squabble between two white people over the state of rap. Eminem’s drops a new song tomorrow with Logic, maybe a verse responding to Biebs will make it on last minute.

Alicia Keys debuts powerful ‘Perfect Way To Die’ video at BET Awards

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys has shared a powerful new video for her recent track ‘Perfect Way To Die’.

The video doubled up as her performance at this week’s virtual BET Awards – watch it below.

The new video, directed by Chris Robinson, sees Keys sat at the piano while images of people killed as a result of police brutality, including George Floyd, are projected onto buildings.

Revealing the reasons behind the song on its release last month, Keys said: “Of course there is no perfect way to die. This phrase doesn’t even make sense but that’s what makes the title so powerful and heartbreaking because so many have died unjustly.

“It’s written from the point of view of the mother whose child has been murdered because of the system of racism that looks at Black life as unworthy. We all know none of these innocent lives should have been taken due to the culture of police violence.”

During the song, Keys discusses deaths at the hands of the police, singing: “Simple walk to the corner store/Mama never thought she would be/Getting a call from the coroner/Said her sons been gunned down/Been gunned down.”

Discussing this year’s BET Awards, which come as Black Lives Matter protests are continuing to be held across the globe, NME wrote: “Everyone knows that the BET awards is one of the biggest platforms in the world, and in its 20th year, the show is still as political as ever.

“The BET channel was created to give unheard black communities a voice – and that was deemed political. And now, with the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement and the assurance that black voices cannot be silent any longer, the channel has leant its platform once again.”

Watch hip-hop collective Monster Florence play ‘Handstand’ at Abbey Road Studios

Monster Florence

Colchester hip-hop collective Monster Florence have shared a new video of them performing their single ‘Handclap’ at the legendary Abbey Road Studios – watch it on NME.com first below.

The track is lifted from the six-piece’s recent EP ‘Cowboys and Idiots’, which came out in May.

Speaking about the new performance, the band’s Tom Donovan said: “When we came to recording the live performance of ‘Handstand’ we found ourselves in a situation that, between the 6 of us, there was no way we could recreate the fullness of the studio recording. So we brought in a couple of close friends who we collaborate with to fill in the missing instruments.

“We got Will and Robin in to handle piano and double bass duties. We knew that had a string quartet with us on the day, so Jonny knocked up a string arrangement to lift it.”

He continued: “When we ran through for the first time, we all stood there in silence trying to take in how magical it sounded. What you see on the video is the second take of it. We agreed to leave it there, as we knew that it couldn’t get any better than that performance.

“Performing on the hallowed grounds of Abbey Road brought the best out of all of us. Our engineer Paul even got out one of the old pianos used by the Beatles to use on it. The live version is one of our most proud performances.”

Back in March, Monster Florence collaborated with Miles Kane on new track ‘Picture Frame’.

Robbie Williams

Robbie Williams has revealed that he and wife Ayda Field were threatened with being beheaded while doing charity work in Haiti.

The singer visited the Caribbean country with Unicef after the 2010 earthquake which left  an estimated 250,000 dead and 1.5 million people without homes.

Recalling the scary incident on Field’s Postcards from the Edge podcast, Williams said: ‘I got threatened to be beheaded in Haiti. We were going out there to help.

“I was like, ‘Should we go to the next street then?’, and looking back, it was scary.”

Field added: “I was with you. I too was being threatened to be beheaded as well.”

Williams previously discussed seeing the aftermath of the earthquake and explained: “As we walked around Jacmel on the first day, it’s hard to explain in words the massive and devastating impact that the earthquake clearly had – it’s a whole different league from what I had imagined I would see.

“It was almost unbelievable, like a movie set. Cars completely crushed – some still poking out from underneath the buildings that have fallen on top of them.”

In May, Williams also re-joined his Take That bandmates for a one-off virtual charity show.

The singer joined forces with Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald for a lockdown show. It was to raise funds for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins and Crew Nation, who are helping to support concert crews during the coronavirus outbreak.
