The Sermon’s Curation: Best Reads Of the Week (11-17 To 11-23)

Editorial: Eminem: A Former Shell Of Himself

“Dre stamped me now, I’m stamping Yelawolf” Eminem – “Our House” (2012) Em recruited Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf to his label around three years ago, and the excitement was inevitable. With Yelawolf’s “Pop The Trunk” blowing up, plus the Slaughter’s lyrical skills, Shady 2.0 seemed highly propitious. That is until the first projects from the new signees hit the shelves. Yelawolf’s Radioactive (executively produced by Eminem) was a commercial disappointment. The album itself did not come across as inadequate when it dropped, but it became so only a few months after. Everyone realized its flaws and quickly deaded the hype built… continue reading

Preach On, Sermon: Why Ro Ransom Is The Future

Preach On, Sermon: Why Ro Ransom Is The Future

His mixtape, 50 Cent Is The Future, changed the entire tape game and helped paved way for what it would eventually become. It was an instance where the mixtape was an important tool that lead to his deal with Interscope and being paired up with the dynamic Dr. Dre and Eminem. Since then, surprisingly, not many rappers have tried to emulate his success with a variation of the tape’s title. A bold claim that artists may have tried to stay away from for good… continue reading
