Eminem Performs Secret New York Show, Thanks Fans For Help

During his secret New York show, Eminem thanked his fans for helping him climb out of a "dark place."

A rumored Eminem appearance in New York became real when the emcee stepped into the Hammerstein Ballroom. The Detroit emcee was there to be a part of the G-Shock 30th anniversary party. During his surprise set, Em explained why he was thankful for his fans and dedicated his performance to others who were also struggling. 

According to several reports, Eminem shared with fans that he "wouldn't have gotten out of that dark place without y'all." Em was seemingly alluding to his bouts with addiction. He went on to say that his performance would be "dedicated to anybody tonight who's been through personal struggles." 

Slaughterhouse opened up for Slim. Recently, Em made headlines when he announced that he has started working on his new album after being invested in the Slaughter project for quite some time.

    "Some of you fools let the fact that he's the biggest and most popular artist in the game blind you from his amazing skill as a lyricist" ^ we're fools for watching you be blind to the fact that there are other popular & great rappers like Em? "Dude got more likes on facebook then any rapper in the game" ^ and what does that mean? You don't even know if those "likes" are honest. There's no reasoning with you fans.

    Some of you fools let the fact that he's the biggest and most popular artist in the game blind you from his amazing skill as a lyricist ....over 15 years in the game and he's still tearing up most other rappers and he's almost 40. Em could've retired back in 2005 and would've gone down as a legend with 3 classic Lps and let's not forget infinite and 8 mile soundtrack .he gets more respect from other rappers then anyone else and he trying to bring lyrics back to the charts. So please some of you don't let the Stan's get to u just fucking listen and remember why dude is widely considered top 5 ever .

    Relapse was actually a dope album, his lyrics and flow are nuts. You just arent shocked because you've been so shocked by him in the past that you're used to it. Recovery just lacked good production and had some awful hooks.Again though.. his lyrics, flow and rhymes are at an all time high.. Encore was pretty bad IMO. I am just stoked for a new album.. I hope he goes into a new direction.

    • Trent

      Stay Wide Awake, DejaVu, Underground and Beautiful from Relapse went over your head.. Em kills it in No Love and Seduction from Recovery Yo, if it's too complicated you can always catch the Pluto album from Future.

      I thought the best songs on Encore were better than the best on Relapse and Recovery. All 3 albums are pretty poor though. His albums have way too much filler and corny pop joints.

      i actually thought Relapse was pretty decent. i listened to it last night and failed to understand why everyone says it's his worst effort to date. the tracks on 'refill' were garbage for the most part, though.

    • nickrazor2000

      Encore wasnt that great but i thought Relapse was his worst album. He was really bad on that shit when he made that album. Every song was about pills

      And if you read his book, you'd know it wasn't until 8 Mile that he started taking alot of drugs. Drug use lead to the dissapointing tracks on 8 Mile (although they were still good) and by far his worst album Encore so.... Also go back and listen to Recovery its really not bad at all, although no classic like the MMLP.

    • ETK

      drugs are still bad. and you're a fucking idiot. wanting a man to put his life back in the shitter just because you're bumping a CD more often than another is mind-numbingly selfishly retarded. "he was making dope music, what the fuck happened?" you grew up, that's what...

  • Slim Shady

    I take a couple uppers I down a couple downers But nothing compares to these blue and yellow purple pills!!!

  • SG

    open your ears to what he says. you will never learn if you don't listen. Most kids don't listen to their parents and end up in prison or dead. The ones that agree are smart as the ones that don't will never understand sadly

  • So Icy Boi!

    first Jay-Z, then Kanye, now Eminem copyin my nigga Lil Wayne. deze old as niggas are so unoriginal. get a life u depressed white boy. Weezy is da real MC. swag

    REALLY? I mean its not like you dedicated AN ENTIRE ALBUM to telling everyone thank you and all that bullshit. I think that track at the end of relapse where the dude is like "POOR ME" represents this perfectly. Ok bro we all know you were going through a shitty time. You got through it. Good Job on your part. Just dont make it a constant focal point in everything you do. I mean if he keeps thanking everyone and being all sappy n shit he is never gonna get past it plain and simple. He fucked up. Everyone does at one point. man up and keep fuckin movin man. I hope his next album doesnt contain another I LOVE YOU YOU SAVED MY LIFE. DRUGS ARE BAD waa waa song. Fuckin Turd

    • ETK

      Fuckin turd? Look in the mirror

    • andrew

      you're stupid AF, and the problem is that there are other millions of people just like you, he is maybe the first to talk about "drugs are bad" in a rap song, all the other stupid ass rappers keep saying "smoke here, smoke there, sell drugs etc" he talked about to do NOT mess with drugs and you're blaming him?? c'mon SMFH
