The launching of Shade 45 at the Shady National Convention: an official step in favor of freedom of speech

He’s been protested against for his wicked lyrics, the government has constantly tried to censor his music and videos…some people still want to shut him down.

Bad news for his opponents: Eminem has the power to voice his political opinion publicly.
Some people reproach him to raise his voice because he is rich. Nonsense! If Marshall Mathers was poor, none of you would take his political opinion into account. No, Eminem is not some rich idiot whose statements are pointless just because he comes from a dysfunctional family, although some readers from Gavinsblog seem to believe it:

« Who cares what Eminem thinks! He’s got a nerve bashing Bush or anyone for that matter. This from a chump who can’t save his marriage, hates and sues his mother and can’t get his own psychological mind in order…and HE wants to save America? Give me a break! Who cares he makes millions…he’s just a chump with a lot of money »

Wrong! A lot of people care about Eminem’s opinion…
Why?
-Marshall Mathers represents a political power in America. His voice is heard on the media.
– Unlike many celebrities who express about politics and trying to get engaged in an electoral campaign, Eminem doesn’t belong to the glamorous Hollywood celebrity world. Marshall Mathers is a self made man who has worked hard to become the powerful man he is now. He remains close to underground and white trash people and perfectly knows about the problems the underprivileged in America experience in their every day life.

The opening of the Shady National Convention is an official step for more freedom of speech in America and a new stab at conservative America.
You will barely see Slim Shady dressed in a suit and wearing a tie. But on Thursday October the 28th, Eminem had some more conventional clothes, probably to mark the beginning of something official.

On the D12 World message board, somebody who had the great chance to attend to the Shady National Convention recalls the event:

” I just got back from the convention, I got my tickets from Jason. It was a hot show. Here are the details I remember:

1)Eminem opened with Mosh, then did Business, White America, Kill you and some others. He also did the shade 45 freestyle.
2) D12 came out and did How Come, U R the one, My band, When the music stops, and then American Psycho with a special appearence by B-Real.
4) Stat Quo came out and performed a song.
3) Obie came out and did his thing with The Setup, then he did ‘Oh’ and none other than Busta Rhymes came out and did it with him. Busta stayed on stage for a little bit and tore the roof off the place.
4) Obie then came back and did his verse of Love Me, then Em came out and did his part, then 50 Cent came out and finsihed the song off. 50 then stayed and did Patiently Waiting with Em and In Da Club with Yayo. Duting In da club, 50 threw his leather jacket into the crowd and almost started a fight when like 6 people were fighting over it. Gotta give 50 credit, he really brought it tonight.
5) Em came back out and closed out with Just Lose It. Before the song, he told Michael Jackson to beat it and “fuck him if he cant take a joke”

I should also add that Donald Trump and Method Man were there, along with Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine and even Bono from U2. Overall great show, I know Im forgetting some things, but this is all i can think of right now.”

The New York Post has offered some negative criticism against Eminem’s Shady National Convention:

http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/31289.htm

If Dan Aquilante really thinks that Eminem’s eminence is diminished, he is really wrong. He’s stronger now more than ever, as he powerfully states it in « Mosh ».

Eminem is indeed a political force and he manages to rally a lot of people is his courageous engagement against Bush. I didn’t have the chance to be a participant to the Shady National Convention, but what I heard from it reveals an amazing ceremony that must have been really great.

Judge by yourself:

The Shady National Convention is the symbol of a new generation that will stand up and fight for its rights.
If Bush loses the elections next Tuesday (November the 2nd 2002) , remember that you will also owe it to Eminem’s strong political engagement against dictatorial power. Let’s build a better and peaceful world- without Bush.

  1. It is Alaina. Alaina is Kim’s twin sister’s daughter. She has been adopted by Marshall and goes by the name Alaina Mathers. She lives with Hailie and goes to the same school as her.

  2. You know, Eminem is the only person that speaks the truth…and truth always hurts, so it is normal for people to try and hide behind the shadows thinking that their insecurities can be hidden…weak people hate Eminem; real people understand his lyrics…stop just hearring him and start listening…

  3. Marshall aka Eminem Adopted Alaina because her mother Dawn could not afford to raise her in a good stable household.since Hailie and Alaina were so close Marshall took Alaina in…Just as simple as that

  4. I wanted to know what the song off the new album Encore titled crazy in love is all about. who is the subject of that song. is it kim?? if it is is it kinda like a flashback? if not who is it and what is it all about?

  5. yes please I’m form Argentina and i wanted to know who is the person that eminem talks about in “crazy in love” I don’t think is about Kim

  6. eminem is the best lyriscist in the world. and on top of that hes white, and he has hit back at every critic that has been hit at him

  8. yo, eminem is maaad sick, ill give that to you for sure, but doesnt anyone else notice that his new cd is a little weak? its seems like he put it together in like a week with no thought and shitty beats. i love eminem and hes amazing, but i find i cant chill to his music anymore like i could with his older stuff. hes too happy now and i think i miss the angry eminem who had nothing to lose. anyone agree?

  9. I love Eminems new album, I think it cool. my fave song is mocking bird followed by loose itt. I encourage everyone to buy it.

  27. Bonnie is being referred to as in ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ the infamous Duo, because on his first album he has a song called ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ that is about him riding with Hallie and Kim is dead in the trunk.

  28. from ashley:eminem is the shit so take a happy pill. Every 1 should just be happy because if eminem wasnt raping about his life it would be boring and he is REALLY BRAVE to let every one no what is going on in his life.

    from sam: he is only speaking his mind. see were all of you were talking about how he is so bad and no1 should listen to him, well that was how u speak your mind and no1 is slammin u so stop slamming emenem

    luv sam & ashley
    ps if any one has any comments about wut we wrote email sam at sammerchen_1@hotmail.com and email ashley at dancingqueen_2811@hotmail.com.

  29. Eminem is probably the best rapper out there! I don’t care what anybody says. I love all his albums. I also think it was really cool of Em to adopt Alaina so she would be able to be stable finacially. I think that if Ciara had a life, she wouldn’t waste it here talking about how much Eminem supposedly sucks. E-mail me at mmandypanda@yahoo.com!

  30. This is going out to Ciara for the comment on
    Jan 22 at 8:56 PM…..Wow Ciara you sound like a
    jealous loser any body who could wish a kid death
    must have it real bad……..By the way Eminem is
    real good looking and stupid now come on even if he were stupid who would care……..but he can’t be that stupid making all the millions…
    I truly feel bad for you I think you have hate inside.. Halie’s a child..how could you say that..you should really channel that aggression

  45. Hey! I’d just like to let ceira know that you dont know what the fuck u r talking about!!!!

    Eminem rocks!! Do you ever just LISTEN to his lyrics? obviously NOT!!! Em tells it like it is, he doesn’t rap about the sex and how many ho’s he’s fucked. sure he has rapped about some stuff like that, but not every single video is about that. He tells it like it is.

    Nikolas is right, weak people hate Eminem, and guess what? YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. i THINK THE MOCKINGBIRD VIDEO IS GREAT .eminem is better than ever before . I really like the way he express himself.

  47. Hey Em, I’m from germany and I was here in the US for a year. I was hoping I’d see you on tour. But now it turned out that I have to go back to gemany 2 weeks before you go on tour. great luck, huh?! I’m really sad I can’t be there, because I’d have to book a flight with money I don’t have. So I was wondering when you come to Germany again. The last time you were there I was first row, you turned around, smiled at me and showed me your finger… you probably don’t remember… Well anyway, the show was fuckin awsome and I can’t wait to see you next one. So do you plan on comin back? I really hope you are. Ok, love you and take care of yourself, you’re the best!!!!!! Sandra

  48. this sux major ass! i cant t go 2 the tour concert first my dad says yes jus to get my hopes up then wat duz he do? bring back down as usual

  49. this is exactly what expected out of eminem fans. Infantile no-marks who’s own live are so empty that they have to rely on mr mathers to get through life. Marshall is a good writer without a doubt he is lyrically gifted. Is he the best ever??no?
    i mean ..look at this crap :-
    “TIffani Says:
    January 31st, 2005 at 7:52 pm
    I love em. He gives me hope..keeps me from killing my self. I have a six year old daughter too. it’s not easy…he makes it bearable.”

    U are one weak person who really doesn’t need to be having children if you have to rely on a pop star.how can em save your life and stop you from killing yourself. Grow up and get real if not for your daughters sake.

    As i scrolled down the page it decends into playground insults and asnine commentary. this is the reason eminem has bodyguards and write certain versus in”the way i am”.

    anyway peace out kiddies
    love music dont live it

  50. yah so umm that wasnt really laney er eminem… cuz umm she calls him her uncle not dad!! and umm yah u guys dont really got his fone number…. and to answer the other person… bonnie is his other daughter that died her nd ronnie died in a plane crash!

  51. That wasn’t Alaina, i know her she goes to my school. She doesn’t call Marhsall her dad she calls him Marshall or uncle Marshall but she does call Hailie her sister. Her birthday is may 3rd, 1993 not february. The reason Marshall and Kim adopted her is cause when she was born her twin brother was born handy capped and she hasn’t met him or her dad they live together. She lived with her grandma for a short while but she didn’t wanna pay her niece to babysit her so Laney lived with Marshall and Kim after that and they adopted her in 1999 i think and that was because they had coustody over her. When they divorced she lived with Hailie and Kim and then Whitney when she was born. Marshall and Kim where back together sometime and then she they all lived together, also with Whitney, who’s Kim’s second daughter, she’s 3 years old now. But Laney then lived with only Kim, Hailie and Whitney untill a year and a half ago. Then she and Hailie moved in with Marshall and now they still live with him and Whitney lives with them once in a while. If you don’t believe me then ask me anything about Laney and i’ll tell you..

  52. hey, for all those ppl asking who bonnie is, listen to 97 bonnie and clyde (slim shady lp) Em refers to himself as clyde and haylie as bonnie. so when stan said he wanted to name his daughter after bonnie he actually meant haylie in some sorta way. by the way the chick who said Em is ugly needs to go FUCK herself!!! . Em Rocks and there aint no doubt about it!!!!

  53. rachel he named her bonnie because of 97 bonnie n clyde
    em says
    97 bonnie n clyde m n my daughter

  54. hey the guy named son
    hailie and alaina r not the same age if u have seen da film clip of mockinbird u would noe dat

  55. hey rachel if you really are in the same school why do not you tell us her phone number or maybe how really she is ? i mean if she is a nice girl or i do not know and do you know hailie too. please answer me or e mail me tatyk15@hotmail.com
