Kim Mathers Faces Drug Rap

Eminem's wife arraigned on cocaine possession charges

July 16, 2001 12:00 AM ET

Kim Mathers, the estranged wife of rapper Eminem, was arraigned today in 41-B District Court of Mount Clemens, Michigan, on one count of possession of a controlled substance. Mathers was found with less than twenty-five grams of cocaine. The charge is a four-year felony.

After pleading not guilty, Mathers was released on a $5,000 cash bond, and her next court appearance is scheduled for August 21st.

The arraignment stems from a July 8th arrest in Harrison Township, Michigan, on an outstanding bench warrant for disturbing the peace after Macomb County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a call about a possible jet ski accident.

After escorting her into the Macomb County Jail, a deputy returned to the sheriff's car and found a "white powdery substance of suspected cocaine" in the backseat, according to a statement issued by the Sheriff's Department. Mathers was released the same day after posting a $3,000 bond.

“Bizness”

Tune-Yards | 2011

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
