Eminem's Rumored New "Revival" Album Release Date Revealed

Grammy-winning rapper Eminem's long-awaited next solo album is around the corner. New reports claim his Revival could possibly arrive in the coming weeks.

According to reports, Em's Revival is expected to drop before the winter holidays.

A few nights ago, Em shared a fan-made "Walk On Water" rendition.

Powerful "Walk on Water" rendition from @daveloveucd - Incredible!

A post shared by Marshall Mathers (@eminem) on Nov 19, 2017 at 11:48am PST

Last weekend, Em performed "Walk On Water" on the "Saturday Night Live" broadcast.

Eminem delivered a nine-minute, three-song medley during his Saturday Night Live musical guest spot, performing new single "Walk on Water," "Stan" and "Love the Way You Lie." On all three tracks, singer Skyler Grey filled in for each track's respective guest - Beyoncé, Dido and Rihanna - while also playing piano for "Walk on Water." Eminem and Grey were also backed by a string section and band. (Rolling Stone)

Thanks to @chancetherapper, @Eminem, and @SkylarGrey for an amazing night! #ChanceOnSNL

What a performance from @Eminem and @SkylarGrey! #WalkOnWater #Stan #LovetheWayYouLie

— Saturday Night Live - SNL (@nbcsnl) November 19, 2017

However, some media outlets went in on Em for flashing back time.

The Detroit native delivered a rendition of his latest single Walk On Water from his forthcoming album Revival, while integrating elements of past hits such as Stan and Love The Way You Lie. But the feedback wasn't likely what Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, and his label were looking for, with many grousing that the veteran rapper had lost his touch and had to rely on past glories to win over the crowd.

Grab The Tissues, Nipsey Hussle Says Lauren London Relationship's Done: "We're Deciding To Separate"

West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle is going to be chasing relationship goals with someone not named Lauren London moving forward. The hip-hop artist has announced an unexpected split from his longtime girlfriend.

Nipsey took to Twitter Wednesday (November 22) to break the big news to fans.

Coincidentally, around this time last year London hit up social media to shut down Nipsey breakup buzz.

A few weeks prior, rap star Nicki Minaj gushed over Lauren and Nipsey's relationship goals.

In summer 2016, London and Hussle put a swift end to breakup rumors.

1. Love Train - The O'Jays

There's nothing worse than having to pack bags and hit the road for a long commute - until you realize it's Thanksgiving Eve - the busiest travel day of the year. Fortunately, SOHH's come to the rescue with the top five songs you gotta keep in steady rotation to get you over the next few hours! Peep 'em below!

1. Love Train - The O'Jays

While their music will never be considered hip-hop, The O'Jays have been sampled by some of the biggest hip-hop icons in the game, including Dr. Dre, Drake, Nas, 2Pac, Wu-Tang Clan, Bone Thugs N' Harmony, Eazy E, B.o.B, Rick Ross, 50 Cent, and countless others. Love Train is one of the best train travel and Thanksgiving songs, as its beat, lyrics, and message convey the sense of family and friends that comes with Thanksgiving, and how a train can connect everyone together.

2. C'mon N' Ride It (The Train) - Quad City DJ's

No train or Thanksgiving playlist should ever be complete without this classic hip-hop hit. While Amtrak was not responsible for the production of this song, it is definitely the song we recommend listening to for getting pumped about your upcoming travel. Since this track might have you wanting to book a train ticket immediately, be aware of when you want to travel. The busiest travel days during Thanksgiving week are the Tuesday and Wednesday before the holiday, and the Sunday after it. Additionally, morning trains typically have more availability than trains in the afternoon or evening. So if you're going to ride the train, book your ticket in advance and get to the station early.

3. Can I Kick It ?- A Tribe Called Quest

Yes, Q-Tip and Phife Dawg, you can kick it on Amtrak. If there was ever a song to help you relax on a train, this is it. Those who are traveling by train this Thanksgiving can sit in comfort, instead of in traffic. With large spacious seats (including ample legroom, outlets for charging, and no middle seat), free Wi-Fi, no "airplane mode", and sight-seeing opportunities for some of the best views of the United States, play this song when you want to unwind, move around, and play. And if you have to work, this song will get you ready for when you're done.

4. Miami - Will Smith

Going on vacation for Thanksgiving? Live by or traveling to a beach with a big city? Is it too cold by you and you wish you were in warm weather? A fan of the potentially College Football Playoff-bound Miami Hurricanes? If the answer is yes to any (or all) of these questions, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air's rap will help you get ready for Thanksgiving...whether or not the heat is on in your city and you'll be on the beach 'till the break of dawn.

5. Motownphilly - Boyz II Men

Did you know that Philadelphia 30th Street Station is Amtrak's third most popular station in the United States (after New York Penn Station and Washington Union Station)? With nearly 4.5 million visitors per year, Thanksgiving week will be a busy time at the Station. In addition to those seeing friends and family or traveling home for Thanksgiving, the Flyers, Eagles, and 76ers will combine to have a home game every day of Thanksgiving week (except Thursday). Even if you aren't headed to, leaving, or thinking of Philadelphia, Boyz II Men will having you reminiscing of the high school memories and home cooking that you picture when you think of traveling home during Thanksgiving week.

50 Cent Looks Like He's Cooking Up Latin Rap, Too: "We Working"

New York rapper 50 Cent is blurring the hip-hop lines. The rap veteran has teased fans about new music possibly coming together with Spanish pop star Abraham Mateo.

Fif went to Instagram Wednesday (November 22) to tease fans about what's possibly coming together with a shot of himself alongside Mateo.

50 Cent recently gave fans a listen to his Jeremih-assisted "Still Think I'm Nothing" single.

Please be patient (perfection) I'm Coming. Listen to my demo, I think I can make it!!! #50centralbet

A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on Nov 13, 2017 at 8:51pm PST

Earlier this month, 50 went to social media to announce his return to the music grind.

I'm back to work people, I mean on the music. I never stop working. #50centralbet #power

[With Justice League doing big numbers at the box office, some fans still haven't had their superhero fix fulfilled. Netflix's highly-anticipated The Punisher series has arrived and comes just in time for a binge-ready Thanksgiving break. SOHH correspondent Ryan Proctor gives his top five reasons this a must-watch!]

1. Frank Castle Is BACK!

Frank Castle, vigilante justice at its finest. He's back, and it's violently glorious. If you have seen the second season of Daredevil, you know what Frank Castle is all about. We've been patiently awaiting his return to the Marvel Netflix Universe, and he's back John Wick style.

2. Jon Bernthal

I honestly don't know of a better person to be portraying this character. We have seen him in many roles, and many seem to be type casted. But, Shane (Walking Dead reference) had to be the only person on this list to play Frank Castle. A match made in heaven this past year when he was revealed as the Punisher. The dark, vengeful, and mysterious Frank Castle just fit too well for Bernthal. And, I don't know how many of you listen to Howard Stern, just listen to the man talk in his interviews. He's perfect for this role.

3. What's Next In The Marvel Netflix Universe (New York):

We watched the Defenders pretty much DESTROY a major part of Manhattan, without Frank Castle's help mind you. But, what's next? If you remember right, Daredevil and the Punisher didn't exactly see eye to eye on how to handle things in Hell's Kitchen, will Daredevil make an appearance after hearing Frank is still up to his no mercy vigilante justice? The Punisher was one of the best parts of season two for Daredevil, maybe he can return the favor for the Punisher's inaugural season.

4. Crazy Amount Of Action

Trust me when I say we are in for some serious violence when it comes to The Punisher. Blood, gore, gun fights will be at the forefront. And considering the type of villains The Punisher takes down, it is going to get crazy intense. Just imagine all those gun fights in the Matrix. Now throw in some blood. That's the type of violence and action coming with this season of The Punisher.

5. Who is Frank Castle?

We all know his family was murdered in the crossfire of a bunch of gangsters. But, how the hell did Frank Castle get all these damn skills? Comic book nerds know the answer to that question, but most people new to the game will see why Frank Castle is ruthless and relentless. There's a rule most people follow, don't mess with another man's family. Frank Castle takes that to extremes, and will do whatever is necessary to make sure you don't make that mistake again. He's got nothing to lose since it's all been taken from him in his eyes. If you kill him I'm sure he wouldn't mind, because you're going to be dead too.

I have high hopes for this season. Not going to lie to you, I was never really a HUGE Punisher fan, but after seeing how they are planning to work this season out, I can't help but watch. Plus, if you're really into all the Netflix Marvel Universe, this is a must watch. It's pretty much comic book heroes this month. When more great content starts rolling around, I'll make sure to get it out there for sure.

Mariah Carey Puts Career In JAY-Z's Hands, Officially Throws Up The Roc
Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 8.11.59 AM

R&B icon Mariah Carey is putting her faith and career into the hands of longtime friend JAY-Z's Roc Nation. New reports claim the veteran crooner has teamed up with the star-studded entertainment company.

According to reports, Carey is now riding with Young Hov's growing business for new management.

Page Six has exclusively learned that she's signing with Roc Nation to manage her career after firing former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month. "[Mariah's] cleaning house. She is getting legitimate people, assistants, a lawyer, and Stella is not happy about it," an insider told us. (Page Six)

Earlier this year, New York rapper Jim Jones officially joined forces with Roc Nation.

Sources close to the "We Fly High" rapper tell us he signed Tuesday with Jay Z and his lieutenants, OG and Ty Ty, to manage all facets of Jim's brand ... music, fashion, acting and more. Our sources say Jim decided to end the feud with Hova to show other rappers it's possible to cut through the drama, and just make smart business decisions. Pretty amazing truce, considering they've been at each other since JJ sided with Cam'ron over Jay in the 2004 break up of Roc-A-Fella Records. (TMZ)

Hours prior, Jimmy confirmed his new business venture on social media.

Last January, rap star Lil Wayne appeared to low-key declare his own Roc Nation loyalty.

During his appearance at the first "LIV on Sunday's" of 2017, Tunechi was spotted jamming out to his "Burn" freestyle off Dedication 4 (I forgot how dope this song is) and throwing up the ROC sign. Weezy also got on the mic to shout "when you see me it's Y-M-R-O-C" and "triangle", which I would presume is for the ROC hand sign. (Lil Wayne HQ)
