Eminem Disses White Rapper, J. Lo Jiggles The Booty Rumors, Mystikal Too Black To Perform?
Throw Tuesday. It’s a day to throw your hands in the air so why not start it off with Eminem throwing shots at a certain white rapper? Someone dissing these days is a plastic surgeon claiming Jennifer Lopez may have had some plastic surgery done? That’s hard to believe like Mystikal being denied a performance because of his skin? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. White On White Crime
Is the rap game big enough for more than one relevant white hip-hop artist? That doesn’t seem to be the case or at least in Eminem’s opinon. It looks like the biggest rapper in the game has some issues with a lesser known artist that happens to go by the name of Asher Roth. XXL Mag is on it:
Many are wondering if the rap God himself, Eminem is throwing shots at Asher Roth on his new album. Leaking a few days prior to it’s release tomorrow, people are buzzing about a track called “Asshole” featuring Skylar Grey in which listeners believe that the Detroit spitter is throwing shade. Speaking about the spectacle on Hot 97′s Morning Show, Rosenberg talked about the supposed shot saying that he indeed was Dissing Roth. Also bringing up the fact that the two were once in admiration of each other, Rosenberg wonders where the “beef” even began. (XXL Mag)
Is there any chance this is a joke or even a misunderstanding? Considering how major Eminem is, especially in comparison to Asher Roth, does it seem like he would invest time in trying to diss Ash? Regardless, could Ash use this to respond and get his own buzz up? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Say It Ain’t So
Could Jennifer Lopez’s greatest asset be fake? This seems very unlikely but with J. Lo now in her 40′s and people still craving that feature, is it possible she went under the knife to keep everything in place? Bossip is on it:
Is there any reason for more discussion? Is it possible this was a publicity stunt? J. Lo hasn’t reached the point where plastic surgery, maybe other than a simple facelift, would be necessary. But could it in the near future? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Racism’s Still Alive
Can racism still be thriving in the world today? If you’re in New York, you have the Barneys situation and it now looks like if you’re in New Mexico, it’s very alive. KRQE is up on it:
A rap concert abruptly canceled the day of the show because of alleged safety concerns is now the center of racial allegations.
The performers’ attorney claims Curry County’s decision to cancel the event was based on the performers’ race.
It was months in the making to get rapper Michael “Mystikal” Tyler to eastern New Mexico. It also cost promoters a whole lot of cash, but just four hours prior to the concert on October 25 in Clovis, Curry County Events Center staff canceled the performance.
Now, artists that planned on performing that night have secured an attorney and are warning of a potential lawsuit.
In a statement, Attorney Shannon Kennedy said “It is clear that the Curry County Events Center acted in a shockingly unprofessional manner toward African-American artists.”
Curry County Events Center Manager Kevin Jolley says he was instructed by law enforcement the day of the concert to cancel the performance because of safety concerns.
What those alleged safety concerns were are still unknown.
Mystikal’s attorney sent county officials a tort claim notice Wednesday stating, “absent a reasonable explanation for the concert cancelation our office presumes the ground for last minute ‘safety concerns’ are race-based and in violation of the Federal and New Mexico Constitution.
The notice also requests all public documents regarding the concert.
No one from the Curry County Events Center would provide details on African-American artists who’ve performed there in the past.
According to their events calendar this was the only African-American rapper scheduled at the site in the last six months. (KRQE)
Is there any chance race played a key factor in this? Would it have been better if Mystikal was a country singer? Could Mystikal have a real case on his hand? Did he have any deposits on this or did he completely miss out on getting paid? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
