Last Lap: Has Eminem Secretly Been Working With Some Familiar Faces?

Faith Evans reveals her thoughts about the Notorious B.I.G.’s death, The Wanted take a break, and Shakira gives fans a taste of her upcoming album.

  • On the heels of his 2013 album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, Eminem has apparently been back in the studio. He reportedly has recorded tracks with Detroit rap group D12, making us wonder if Em is planning to spread his takeover into 2014. [NME]
  • During an interview with Arsenio Hall, Faith Evans opened up about the years-long murder investigation of her slain ex-husband, rapper Notorious B.I.G. Faith has little doubt that Los Angeles police have adequate information on the 1997 murder, but for some reason, they’re not closing the case. Shady stuff, indeed. [Vibe]
  • If you’d been in touch with your inner teenager lately, get ready for some sad news. British boy band The Wanted announced they’re going on an indefinite hiatus following their tour. Plus, One Direction fans are probably laughing at you right now. [Idolator]
  • Shakira announced that her next album will drop March 25 — what can fans expect? [MTV News]
