Video: Eminem – “Stan” Live For BBC Radio 1

posted by Oscar November 22, 2013

While in the UK Eminem met up with radio personality Zane Lowe for an in-depth interview talking largely about his latest effort, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Since he was already at the BBC Radio 1 studios, Em took advantage of that and performed some tracks. The first was “Berzerk,” which went live earlier this week, and today we get a real classic from the Detroit native, “Stan.” This rendition gave more importance to the guitar riff and sounds a lot less dark and menacing than the studio version.

Still, the performance was good. Check it out above.

Earlier in the year we got a super informative interview from Kanye West when he crossed the pond to talk to Zane Lowe about his views on the current state of Hip Hop and his new album, Yeezus. Today we’re getting a bit more from the famous radio broadcaster who sat with Eminem, the latter talking to him about what’s new from the Detroit emcee.

Em’s attempt to top the Yeezy interview and the Ricky Bobby reference makes for a good start in this new series. Also, there’s some interesting stuff with Eminem talking about how he went about approaching this album, giving more details on some of the tracks, and working with Rick Rubin.

The “Rap God” is over in the motherland to continue promoting MMLP2 and stopped by BBC Radio 1 to perform “Berzerk” live. The speculation of lip-synching that was a criticism he received for his performances on SNL are not an issue on this one, where Eminem sounds damn good rapping live.
