  8. Eminem has been an iconic figure in the rap game since the Detroit bad boy with the blistering rhymes dropped his smash Shady/Aftermath debut album The Slim Shady LP back in 1999. In 2011, the Michigan wordsmith continues to sell plenty of albums, with 2010's Recovery still blazing the charts. With two diamond-selling albums, sell-out festival spot dates and a side project with longtime friend Royce Da 5’9", Eminem and his fame have grown tall while many of his peers can only dream of his fame. Eminem now has another accomplishment to add to his towering résumé with his recent crowning as “King of Hip-Hop” by Rolling Stone magazine, which did a recent tally of rap powerhouse acts and their importance to the genre. Although Rolling Stone is just one opinion, albeit a highly visible one, many fans are torn by the magazine’s nod to Eminem. On one side, fans acknowledge the impact and ability of Eminem, while the others state that sales too heavily influenced the crowning. Over on Twitter, the debate about Em's new title has been a heated one. “S/O to @Eminem for the cover of @RollingStone & being crowned the King of Hip Hop...in my opinion its well deserved...,” tweeted a supportive @NastashNafrini, while user @LexLamont disputed, “No. Dope as he is, he doesn't have one largely undisputed classic album. I think Rolling Stone judged on sales and influence tho.” Fellow Hip-Hop King Jay-Z had his name come up a bit with fans as well. “In 2003, yes. Today, Jay has the crown,” tweeted Hov fan @kobe42085. As fans draw lines in the sand over who they feel deserves the top nod, Nicki Minaj fans are happy as the Young Money diva was the only female to be included on the Kings list. “It just dawned on me. Slim Shady & Roman (Eminem & Nicki Minaj) are the 'King & Queen of Hip-Hop.' Dubbed by ROLLING STONE!!!!” tweeted a stoked @turkBISH in support. Eminem should be used to this manner of high praise by now, as MTV last year dubbed the Detroit star the Hottest MC in the Game, edging out Jay-Z and Kanye West, who came in at #2 and #3 respectively. Will Eminem have a repeat showing in 2011? Stay tuned. Did Eminem deserve the King of Hip-Hop crown? If not, who do you think should have gotten the nod?

  9. Last week, following the premiere of Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Otis" video, many viewers walked away from the screen asking the same question: "Who was the little guy in the back in the suit and shades pushing the chopped-up Maybach?" Some laughed after suggesting it was Kanye's right-hand man and G.O.O.D. Music executive Don C, but after a good stare it was confirmed the individual stunting alongside 'Ye was none other than actor Aziz Ansari. Aziz's appearance in the lead video, and potentially sole visual, from WTT was actually a no-brainer, considering the actor's relationship with West. The moonlighting comedian rang in the New Year with the Throne, and last year, Ansari electrified a Comedy Central crowd when he reflected on meeting the Louis Vuitton Don, an encounter that resulted in Aziz performing an impromptu stand-up routine in the rapper's living room in front of a small crowd. "My favorite part was when every once in a while, somebody would be in the kitchen making a drink and they'd make a little noise, and Kanye would jump up and yell, 'Yo! Shut the f--- up! Homey's over here trying to tell some jokes!' " Ansari recalled during the comedy special. "Which is the best thing anybody has ever yelled at a comedy show." Just in time for his new film "30 Minutes or Less," Aziz spoke with Mr. Carter's digital homebase, Life + Times, during a Q&A session, speaking on his two minutes of fame as hip-hop's newest hypeman. Life+Times: Your new movie is in theaters and you make a cameo appearance in a JAY Z/Kanye video, are you having your best summer ever? Aziz Ansari: It’s been pretty good. I also had a really tasty donut for breakfast. Things are going my way. L+T: There’s a part in the “Otis” video where you seem to be pantomiming Ye’s lyrics as he stands on top of that Maybach, did [director] Spike [Jonze] tell you to do that or were you just in the moment? AA: Spike just told me to be their hypeman and do whatever I felt like doing, so that was in the moment. L+T: Did you receive a custom Watch the Throne commemorative watch? AA: Nah, that was just for the producers. I got a Watch the Throne commemorative beer cozy made for myself though. Were you surprised to see Aziz in the "Otis" video? Let us know in the comments.

"For years, Marty was told that Doc Brown was dangerous, a crackpot, a lunatic. So, being a red-blooded American teenage boy, age 13 or 14, he decided to find out just why this guy was so dangerous. Marty snuck into Doc’s lab, and was fascinated by all the cool stuff that was there. when Doc found him there, he was delighted to find that Marty thought he was cool and accepted him for what he was. Both of them were the black sheep in their respective environments. Doc gave Marty a part-time job to help with experiments, tend to the lab, tend to the dog, etc. And that’s the origin of their relationship," Gale explained. So now you know.

  17. Just ahead of West Coast vet The Game and the oft-delayed fourth studio release The R.E.D. Album, a new track from the album has leaked to the Web and finds the Compton native enlisting some lyrical assistance from one of the newest and brashest voices in Hip Hop right now – and the track takes no prisoners on their pop culture and musical targets. The de facto leader of West Coast Hip Hop collective Odd Future Tyler The Creator joins Game and Lil Wayne on the track “Martians vs. Goblins” with the Young Money captain providing just the hook for the song. Game and Tyler don their bad boy hats and go in on what seems to be the entire entertainment industry with some blistering putdowns, with Game known as a master of the dis rhyme format. Tyler picks up the slack with his typical foul mouthed flair on the help out. Game and Tyler turn up the heat on LeBron James (and his mother Gloria), Erykah Badu, and Tyler The Creator even flung a jab at Game on his own track. However, Tyler’s barbs towards Twitter nemesis Chris Brown and “Nothing On You” singer Bruno Mars appear to be the harshest with a barely printable line towards the popular vocalist. Game channels Tyler’s edge by dissing Rihanna and fellow West Coast rapper Lil B with some particularly shocking lines. Will the entertainers take it all in stride or is Game gearing himself up for another verbal war? Will he enlist Tyler again to withstand the assault? Stay tuned for this one. Did you hear Game’s new “Martians vs. Goblins” track? Do you think anyone will respond? Tweet to us at @MTVRapFix or leave us a comment below.

Lying on the ground and looking uncomfortably off into the distance, Kipps looks like he could be in a little bit of supernatural trouble.

If[url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/04/11/daniel-radcliffe-woman-in-black-trailer/"] the trailer[/url] is any judge, Kipps certainly has a lot on his plate in this movie. When MTV caught up with Radcliffe earlier this year to chat about the flick, he shared that he was glad "The Woman In Black" is such a departure from "Harry Potter." It also was a bit of a challenge for Radcliffe to make, he said, because he's not a fan of horror movies. If he's already talking about being scared by it, we certainly do not stand a chance. "It's going to be terrifying, and at the test screening they had, apparently people were leaping out of their seats terrified, so I think it's just going to be a really, really good movie," he revealed. "I'm looking forward to the full trailer coming out, presumably months down the line because I think when people start to see more and more, I think the buzz about it will continue to build."

  25. Ohio native and current Atlanta resident Shad “Bow Wow” Moss has grown up under the hot lights of Hip Hop scrutiny ever since making a splash as a kid rapper with former mentor Jermaine Dupri and appearing on Snoop Dogg’s classic Doggystyle album when he was much younger. Now at 24 and currently a part of the Young Money conglomerate, the rapper and actor has released the fourth in his Greenlight mixtape series hosted by DJ Ill and DJ Rockstar earlier today in an effort to reestablish his rap roots and to also prep fans for his upcoming YMCMB full-length Underrated in November. On Greenlight 4, Bow Wow also taps his network of friends in the industry to help bolster his product. The 17-track mixtape is packed with features such as May Bach Music Group and Triple C’s member Gunplay on the track “Why They Hate.” Tity Boi (2 Chainz) and YM boss Lil Wayne rock alongside Bow Wow on “Ima Stunt” and R&B crooner Chris Brown gives an assist on the track “I Isn’t Thinkin ‘Bout You.” Bow Wow also reconnects with Snoop Dog for the track “Come Smoke With Me Pt. 4” and also snagged a Queen Latifah feature for the track “Set It Off.” Greenlight 4 is Bow Wow’s sixth official mixtape and fourth as part of the vast Cash Money machine. Underrated, slated for a November 1 release, will be his seventh full-length album not including his collaborative work with R&B singer Omarion in 2007 titled Face Off.
