Eminem Car Crash a “Twitter Rumor” Says Manager

Earlier today (August 17) and yesterday popular social network site Twitter was abuzz with claims that rap superstar Eminem had died in a car crash.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Eminem is in fact alive and well and the reports were just “Twitter rumors” in the words of Shady’s longtime manager Paul Rosenberg. Yet it seems as if the first web posting about the Detroit lyricist’s alleged accident appeared on Yahoo News. In the story, which has since been removed, Em was on his cell phone before succumbing to “a terrible car crash.” The false article included quotes from a doctor named “Dr. Adams.”

Em isn’t the only hip-hop artist to have rumors spread about his death on the net. Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and Nate Dogg have all been victims of similar false reports. –Max G

    Son, you trippin, that My Mom track is the weakest shit on the album. Everything else is beast. Maybe your CD is stratched and you can’t get past track #4.
    Best joints in Medicine Ball, 3AM, Ganjah, Insane, & My Darling.

    Don’t get to bump that “The Warning” joint that slaughtered Mariah & Nicky! That is the best diss of 09 by far.

    And on topic, those fools waisting there lame lifes saying all these celeberties are dead better watch there actions because that shit will come on yo bitch ass.

    My Mom IS the shit!!! So is Same Song and Dance,Hello,etc

  • MAC215


    Naw son YOU trippin My Mom is 1 of the best songs on the album cuz Em’s flow is crazy and coming from somebody who had a similar relationship with his mom I can relate to that song cuz its really about Em accepting his moms finally and forgiving her and him realizing that she was a drug addict and by him going thru wat he went thru he understands now so thats why I feel its one of the best songs on the album and the beat is ill, that beat is my shit Lol and overall I think Stay wide awake is probably the hottest song cuz everything about that song is hot.

    I recommend a lot of you take grammar lessons. Also, eminem is a crackhead. He
    is a talented rapper, but a crackhead nonetheless. Have a nice day.
