Eminem- TV Total (Freestyle)

O.k., so this one takes a little explaining unless you are German or for some reason you watch a lot of German TV. German comedian Stefan Raab has a late-night talk show on German television called TV Total. Em has appeared on the show several times, and each time Stefan tries to get Em to do some wacky TV Total style things.
Well yesterday was no exception... Basically, all we were told was that Em was going to do an interview with Stefan for an 8 minute segment, and then he was going to perform "We Made You" live. Simple enough, right? No.
See, Stefan came back to talk to Em before the show and they went over a few topics, then Stefan suggested that him and Em perform a samba style rap. Em, and everyone else in the room thought Stefan was being silly, and didn't take him seriously. Well, he was serious.
The crazy thing about the set on TV Total is that Stefan's desk and the platform where the guests sit that is attached to it moves from right to left and vice-versa across the stage. After 15 (not 8 mind you) minutes of wacky German humor, Stefan pulled the lever to move the platform to the right. Now, Stefan and Marshall were sitting with the band. Some more indecipherable German banter occurred and the next thing you know- BAM! Samba rap was born

I know that Em wasn't expecting to bust a samba freestyle with Stefan on guitar and chorus vocals, but that's what happened. Off-the-top, crazy ill German samba rap song in English and German. Yes, that just happened.

Awesome! Stefan Raab is an institution. He's hysterical, very witty, with just the right portion of annoying. If only his English was better... Shame I missed the whole show.
Happy to translate if you find it on YouTube or elsewhere.

BTW I wouldn't be surprised if he asked for publishing rights, he's turned the weirdest stuff into hits.

i see you em...!!


but, you know i got to get on you for wearing that little ass jacket. it's all love though.

Dav said...

Awesome. I love to see him so casual, playing with the frontman, making jokes... It's just great time.

The freestyle is really funny and knowing that Em' wasn't ready for it makes it even more enjoyable.

I'm not a fan of We Made You but Kon Artis is a good choice to accompany him.

Can't wait for the next interviews, especially on BBC.

Funny as hell, although the audience was as much responsive as a dead body in the middle of winter...poor host, you could tell he was getting very, very nervous.

Evie, Big Em's Fan

Its a shame not many people know about this blog, I stumbled upon it by chance. Anyway, I've been chatting to some fellow fans who saw the tv total freestyle, and not that we're experts or anything but seriously, samba rap is pretty awesome.
Also, the "Its raining dicks !" bit was priceless.
On a less happier note, people are onto the fact that it isn't actually Eminem on twitter; probably a publicist or something..

JFK said...

Haha I heard the audio for that but not the video. That was awesome.


P.S. - I downloaded Relapse and it's pretty legit. I wish Em took his comeback album a little more serious at points, and used a little less accent, but overall the album is a 4/5. I know he can do better. Underground is fucking crazy.

P.P.S. - Yes I'm still buying it.

That is a good show; when it is impulsive and creative. Marshall is appropriate in any given situation, and he really handled it well being put on the spot like that. The whole world loves you Eminem! My oh my oh my

cHoKi said...

haha, it was really great! Even tough Stefan Raab's humor is kinda silly he has some sense for music. They should make a record^^
