    Default Eminem to Make Final Bow As Solo Artist

    Give me a fucking break....


    DETROIT (Reuters) - Rap superstar Eminem plans to make his last solo performance in Ireland in September, the Detroit Free Press, his hometown newspaper, said on Friday.

    Citing sources close to the 33-year-old rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, the daily also said his current album "Encore" would probably be his last as he moves to full-time work as a record producer.

    The final solo appearance of Mathers, the best-selling hip-hop artist ever, would be at a concert in Dublin, Ireland, on Sept. 17, the Free Press said.

    The newspaper quoted his manager, Paul Rosenberg, as saying no official decision had been made about the future of the Grammy and Oscar-winning artist who has recorded three top-10 albums.

    But Rosenberg said Mathers' current multi-platinum album was "certainly the cap on this part of his career."

    Mathers' spokesman at Interscope Records in Los Angeles could not immediately be reached for comment.

    The Free Press said the rapper, who has sold more than $1 billion worth of records, has grown weary of the media spotlight and may be musically spent.

    "Marshall feels he's said everything he can say as Eminem," one insider was quoted as saying. "The idea that he intended this ("Encore") to be his last record is something that everyone on the inside circle has known for a while."

    Another source said "Encore," which was released last year, had been an especially difficult record for the artist to make. "Marshall really struggles to write for himself now, to speak through the voice of Eminem," the source said.

    "He knows as well as anybody that there comes a point where you risk beating this thing to death."

    The cover shot on "Encore" shows Mathers taking a bow, and its closing song is entitled "Curtains Down."

    In the album's liner notes, and in his current concert tour, Mathers has also played up the figurative death of Eminem.

    "This is how you go out with a bang, baby," Mathers says in one video," after pulling the trigger of a pistol that misfires on himself.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008

    As long as he's not the next Van Halen front man I'm happy.

    I don't listen to his stuff but I don't hate him either, I hope he's successful as a producer.

    Any artist who has nothing to say after 3 albums, had nothing to say in the first place. He is a joke, and represents the joke that the mainstream is. I think it's funny that he admits that he stuggles to write material now. He can't come up with anyting that "mathers" to anyone. (ha ha)

    Rapper 'Proof' of D12 Killed at Detroit Nightclub
    Tuesday , April 11, 2006

    DETROIT — Proof, a member of rap group D12 and a close friend of Eminem, was shot to death early Tuesday at a nightclub along Eight Mile Road, a publicist said.

    The death of Proof — whose real name is Deshaun Holton — was confirmed by Dennis Dennehy, the publicist for D12's label, Interscope Records.

    "Memorial service arrangements are still being made, and his friends and family would appreciate privacy during this difficult time," Dennehy said in a statement.

    Family members gathered at a home on Detroit's northwest side. The residential street in front of the two-story home was lined with vehicles.

    Proof was the best man at Eminem's wedding in January and often appeared alongside the superstar rapper at concerts and public appearances. He also appeared in the film "8 Mile."

    D12, which includes Eminem, has been around since the mid-1990s, when members of the rap group met at Detroit's Hip-Hop Shop, a clothing store by day and a hip-hop club by night.

    Detroit police wouldn't confirm that Proof was killed, but said two people were shot in the head — one fatally — early Tuesday at a nightclub on Eight Mile.

    An argument at the CCC nightclub escalated into gunshots, Detroit police spokesman James Tate said.

    Wende Berry, a spokeswoman for St. John Health System, said Holton was dead on arrival at St. John Conner Creek, an outpatient treatment facility. Berry confirmed that he had a gunshot wound.

    Another member of Eminem's inner circle — rapper Obie Trice — was shot while driving on a Detroit-area highway in December.

    I can't stand Eminem as an artist, but Proof was a pretty cool dude. I've seen some interviews with the guy, and he seemed like a pretty down to earth cat. It's ashame that the good ones always have to go.
