Eminem Launches Chilling Web Game, Teaches Kimmel To Rap

June 5, 2009 9:05 AM ET



There's a new member of Eminem's D-12, and his name is Briefcase Joe: Slim Shady was back on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night in a taped segment in which he teaches the late-night host how to rap. "Reach down deep inside of you, and always make your life seem worse than it actually is," Eminem recommends as the pair don matching gray hoodies. "You can take little truths and stretch them as far as you can." The result of Eminem's tutelage? "My testicles are vegetables, they're going to Mexico," Kimmel rhymes. It's a fitting end to the Kimmel/Eminem bromance that spawned the rapper's three special live appearances on the show.

Eminem may be keeping the mood light with some Relapse-related hilarity — he's promoted the album in an amusing viral clip depicting his return to high school and permitted Sacha Baron Cohen's thong-clad Brüno to crash into his face during a staged stunt at the MTV Movie Awards. But Relapse launched with a creepy Website built to resemble a rehab facility and a single about a grisly serial killer ("3 A.M.") and Em isn't done visiting the album's more gruesome aesthetic.

Yesterday on Relapse's official Website, Eminem launched a chilling game that permits users to navigate around the Popsomp Hills rehab clinic. There are some scenes of bloody rampage in the style of the "3 A.M." video, and a hidden link to a similar iPhone version of the game. No spoilers: check out the game to find out if you make it out alive.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
