Bad, Beautiful, and Candy: UNSIGNED HYPE EMINEM Wow, it's been a few months since we've profiled a creme-de-la-creme MC in need of some nurtur- ing from a record company. During our ninety day hiatus, however, our ever-reliable "Flavortracker 2000" came across a target that, in many ways, redefines the term ill. He goes by the name of Eminem (as in the popular candy). After making a buzz in the Detroit area for quite some time, he just recently gained the hip-hop nation's atten tion with his impressive showing in events like the Rap Olympics. One glimpse of the contents within his Slim Shady demo, one can't help but recognize that this rapper of the Caucasian per- suasion's got skills As far as flow, he keeps it simple, yet extremely effective. In "Murder, Murder," he kicks a humorous tale about a bank heist gone wrong: "Left the keys in the van/ With a gat in each hand/ Went up in Eastland/ Shot a police- man/Fuck a peace plan/ If citizen bystands/ The shit is my hands/ Here's your life span/ For what your life's worth, this money is twice than/ Grab a couple grand and live in Iceland/See, I'm a nice man, but money turned me to Satan." Another guaranteed rewinder is the semi-demented "Just The Two Of Us," a crazed tale about the action Eminem takes upon his baby's mother. With wife placed comfortably in the back of his trunk, E drives far and wide explaining to his seed t reasons why "daddy had to bury mommy." Point blank, this ain't your average cat. T- Motor City kid is a one-of-a-kind talent and he about to blow past the competition, leaving mar melted microphones in the dust.

You are playing a game of Hangman, in which some letters have been completed while others have not. Your goal is to figure out what each word could possibly be. s_1 (a) 1 i_hth_u b__ad a | S S (b) (c) 2. Substrings For each problem, identify a valid English word that includes the indicated substring. "mew" (a) (b) "uer" (c) "gza" Prime words A letter is a prime letter if it is the nth letter in the alphabet and n is a prime number. (Note: 'B' does not meet the criterion because it is the 2nd letter, not the 2th.) A word 3. is a prime word if it consists solely of prime letters (a letter can be used more than once). Find two prime words with length 4 and a prime word with length 5. 4. Grid completion In the following grid, you need to fill a letter in each of the empty blanks, so that the 3-letter words formed in each column (indicated by red arrows) and the 6-letter word formed in the center row (indicated by the blue arrow) are all valid English words.

Coolio, Deer, and Food: RIGHT AND EXACT t an organic-food store next to his Razor Sharp headquarters in Manhattan, RZA picks up some hand soap, natural sham poo & conditioner, and a five-pound jar of somethingcalled Batherapy that promises to "change ordinary tub water into a refreshing, beneficial spa-like bath. He hops into a white Range Rover, readying fora one-and a-half hourdrive to his home, affec tionately named the Wu Mansion, although no one but he and his brother Divine actually lives there.It's situated in a remote area ofcentral New Jersey on five lush acres ofland, complete with com fields and roads with ณstic names like Deer Trail. The rest of Wu. Tang use the home as a clubhouse, sleeping over whenever they The Wu-Tang Clan regroup, reflect, and return to tailor a new era in hip hop Make way for the Wu World Order. By Mimi Valdés. Photographs by Daniel Hastings have to get work done in the tiny basement studio. Keeping it real four years ago and today is different, says RZA, the abbot and architect of Wu-Tang Clan, the most pow erful force in hip hop today. "I'm not inspired by all that oth er shit from before-boosting Polo and Hilfiger all day. My life Juice is when you can get out of being is different now Indeed, since his debut as Prince Rakeem in 199s, with a bevy of seductresses cooing in "We Love You Rakeem," his first video, you could say things have changed in RZA's life. Six years later, he's a major player on both entrepreneurial and artistic levels in the music biz, touted not just as a sonic visionary but also as one of the industry's best negotiators. RZA studied the game and rewrote the rules. Now, instead of being pimped, he's the Mack having set updeals with almost every majorlabel-afeat not accom- nizes you. plished since the mighty George Clinton did it in his heyday Juice is Under his shrewd, painstaking auspices, the nine grimy nuhs of Wu-Tang Clan have created an unprecedented business pyra- able to floss on the East side your six and not. get "hit up" by any mid, built on a unique, impregnable foundation. All of the Wu individual projects-specifically deals for Method Man (Def am), Ol Dirty Bastard (Elektra), Rackwon (Loud/RCA),GZA Geffen), and Ghostface Killah (Razor Sharp/Epic)-are so per- cent partnerships with Wu-Tang Productions. The Wu-Tang Clan familia, separately and collectively, have sold more than four-and-a-half-million records, and debut albums from Inspectah Deck, U-God, CappaDonna, and Shaolin chanteuse Tekeitha are in the chamber, awaiting release. Furthermore,each zo percent of his earn- ings to Wu-Tang Productions. This way, everyone profits. It's heads 40 Coolio crew Wu memberwith a solo deal contributes pure, communal capitalism at its finest What kind of power Wu got? Sales power. In the June s99 issue of Icon magazine, RZA broke down their earnings like so: Let's say Raekwon has a fourteen-percent deal, he gets four teen points. A point is usually worth about seven cents. Estimate seven cents, multiply by fourteen ifhe's getting fourteen points and that's ninety-eight cents. Maybe one dollar to S1.03. That translates to about a dollar per record. "So, say Raekwon sells eight hundred thousand records, that's eight hundred thou- between Clan solo members and the group as a whole. "Like,Meth might have a fifteen-point deal. Wu-Tang Clan might have a seventeen-point deal. And it escalates. Ifyou go gold, you get another point. You go platinum, you get another point. I got a deal right now with sand dollars."And that percentage varies Gee Street. My shit is eighteen points. That's A-artist status RZA is a master of planning. He bases all his decisions on the long term, never short term," says Def Jam's Russell Simmons, another self made mogul. "His decisions represent a development for a real audience. He takes risks. It shows the foundation audi ence you are serious about them, reminds them that they're the ones who count, who you make the music for Creatively,he's the most important person in hip hop because he reaffirms what the culture is all about."
