New Music: Eminem f/ Sia – ‘Guts Over Fear’

Guts Over Fear

Hours after announcing his new album ShadyXV, Eminem has unleashed his new single “Guts Over Fear” featuring Sia. Slim Shady reflects on the highs and lows of his career on the empowering anthem about acceptance.

“So this is for every kid whose all they ever did was dreamt that one day just getting accepted / I represent him and her and anyone similar / You are the reason that I made this song,” he raps.

The song can also be heard in the trailer for The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington.

On November 24, Shady Records will release ShadyXV, a two-CD compilation of the label’s greatest hits including 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” plus an album of new material from Em, Slaughterhouse, Bad Meets Evil, D-12, and Yelawolf.

Eminem and Rihanna Take ALS Ice Bucket Challenge On Stage

Rihanna and Eminem

Eminem and Rihanna’s tour capped off on an icy note.

After being challenged by Dr. Dre, the Detroit rapper finally took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge during the last stop of “The Monster Tour” at Detroit’s Comerica Park on Saturday. At the end of the show, Em took a seat on stage while Mr. Porter brought out a garbage can full of ice. But he decided to let Rihanna do the honors instead, dumping the cold water over her tourmate’s head.

“If this was not for charity, I would be so fucking mad right now,” said a soaked Em.

He then challenged Mr. Porter, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna herself.

“Where you going mischievous?” Em told RiRi before getting payback.

“I’m from the islands, I don’t do this ice shit. This ice shit doesn’t work for me,” she said before taking a seat.

Her assistant and hair stylist emerged from backstage with a large pot and drenched the singer.

Watch the ice-cold action below.
