News Bites on Eminem, Lil Wayne & Nicki Minaj

Eminem will appear on this Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes. Anderson Cooper sat down with Shady in July to profile the rap star in a handful of locations in Detroit to speak on his battle with drug addiction and his return to dominance on the Billboard charts. The show is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. EST on CBS.

Speaking of chart dominance, Nicki Minaj recently broke records on the Nielsen SoundScan. So far the Young Money princess has racked up seven entries on SoundScan’s list of the 200 highest selling songs of 2010. According to Yahoo News, the tracks— “Your Love,” Ludacris’ “My Chick Bad,” Lil Wayne’s “Knockout,” Trey Songz’s “Bottoms Up,” Usher’s “Lil Freak,” Sean Kingston’s “Letting Go” and Jay Sean’s “It Ain’t The End”—have a combined sales total of 4,298,000. Minaj is currently prepping the release of her debut album, Pink Friday, for release on November 23.

Barbie’s mentor Lil Wayne also made headlines this week. The incarcerated rapper delivered his final letter yesterday (October 7) on his website, weezythanxyou.com, before being released on November 4. “Hello world, he wrote. “Time is ticking and I’m counting every second. Because of my new limitations, this unfortunately has to be my last letter. I don’t think people truly understand how much their thoughts and well wishes have helped me through this time in my life. Not everyone is as lucky as I am and it humbles me daily. You would be amazed what positivity can do in a negative environment. I’m going to miss reading about your lives. I’m going to miss looking at the pictures. They were the highlight of my days aside from speaking with my kids. Don’t stress over this in 27 days, the ride starts again.” —Elan Mancini

      Nicki Minaj is one of the most gifted, and most hardcore MCs in the game. Don’t underestimate her cuz she is a girl. If Lil Wayne sees potential in her, she has it. Maybe the new queen of hip hop?

        Are you smoking crack. Lil’ Wayne wouldn’t know tallent if it was mixed up in his sizzurp. Young money is a joke, and can’t even be taken serious. It’s music for little kids.
