Listen To Like Vultures’ Cover Of “The Monster” By Eminem

Last week Like Vultures released their new EP, titled Win Some X Lose Some. It seems that at some point during their recording process they took some time to record an additional song, which happens to be a cover and is not a part of the EP. The cover they recorded, and have just released, is Eminem & Rihanna‘s “The Monster.” It’s available to stream beneath the break.

Their singer might not hit as high of notes as Rihanna, but it’s still a pretty solid cover song. If you dig it, be sure to pick up a copy …

In that time, the Australian based band have made their first appearance in many US cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and – most recently – Detroit.

Busta Rhymes and Eminem Want You to “Calm Down”

What do you get when you match up two of raps most diverse and quick lyricists? You get a six-minute-long rap anthem by the name of “Calm Down” that hits on everything from social media, to Clive Davis, to music critics and back around to Fahrvergnügens. Yes. The Volkswagen van. Only Busta Rhymes would rap about a van and make it work.

Speed isn’t the point here, as both of the veterans excel in their sporadic, smart rhymes that even make sense. Even producer Scoop Deville has time to sample “Jump Around” by House of Pain. This six-minute rap battle …

Eminem Banned From Hyde Park for “Offensive” and “Unsuitable” Lyrics

Longtime rapper Eminem had agreed terms with Barclaycard British Summer Time promoters AEG, but a Freedom Of Information request by The Daily Mirror shows the agreement was vetoed by Royal Parks, the body that runs Hyde Park, because they feared his lyrics could upset other park users. The result? He’s banned from playing a day festival in Hyde Park due to his lyrics being deemed “offensive” and “unsuitable.” Yes, this is the same guy who melted hearts with his “Headlights” Mothers’ Day music video.

Just last month, Eminem was saying he was under the impression he could make …

New ‘The Equalizer’ Trailer: Just Your Average Every Day Crime Fighting

We brought you what we thought to be the first trailer for The Equalizer a few weeks back, but we recently learned that was a not-so-official cut that somehow found its way online. Today, Sony released what they’re calling the first official look at the new Denzel Washington film, and we have the full trailer right here on UTG.

Boston is a city that has appeared on film many ways in recent years. For The Equalizer, one of the nation’s oldest cities turns into a festering hub of crime, with villains lurking around every corner. Thankfully, for everyday people …

Watch Eminem’s Heartfelt Spike Lee-Directed “Headlights” Video

A single day out of the year to celebrate our moms doesn’t seem like enough time to do justice for all that they do. Even Eminem knows that. The Detroit rapper decided to celebrate Mother’s Day on May 11 by releasing his new, heartfelt, Spike Lee-directed music video for “Headlights.”

The song, which features Nate Ruess of fun. and The Format, is an apology to his mom about negatively referencing her in all of his past music. Lee’s video is shot from a first-person perspective of Eminem’s mother, Debbie Matters, to make a four-minute video that reveals the troubled …

GOD SAVE SLIM SHADY: Eminem Announces Show At Wembley Stadium In London

Are you British? Do you love Eminem? Then you’re in luck. Unfortunately, I’m in New York, so I doubt I’ll be making this specific show.

About a half hour ago (in true Sex Pistols’ fashion), the “Rap God” announced a one-off date in London on July 11 at Wembley Stadium via his Instragram account, as well as BBC radio.

The rapper’s most recent release The Marshall Mathers LP 2 came out in September of last year. He has a few tour dates slated for August, but has not confirmed any major national tours as of yet.

Austin City Limits Festival Announces 2014 Lineup

Hey, look! It’s another 2014 festival lineup!

After expanding to two weekends for the 2013 festival, the 2014 edition of the Austin City Limits Music Festival will take place on October 3-5 and 10-12, featuring headlining sets from Eminem, Pearl Jam, Outkast, Skrillex, Beck and Calvin Harris. Given that ACL and Lollapalooza are produced by the same company (C3 Presents), there is typically a great deal of crossover between the two lineups. This certainly holds true in 2014, but it seems the identities of the two festivals are beginning to blur.

ACL has always skewed older than its sister festival …
