This is not at all what we were expecting from the “retired” rapper. Eminem has been writing songs and working on a comeback, and I say that every so lightly because I think the heavyweight rapper (no pun intended) will be welcomed back by most with open arms.

June 27th at Hyde Park in London is the place to be if you are a fan of South Africa’s President Nelson Mandela.

After going into retirement in 2005, we didn’t hear a lot from Eminem, other than a reconciliation/split with his babies’ mama Kim Mathers. There was also the book “My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem” that his disgruntled mother, Debbie Nelson wrote. Most recently he ballooned up but other than that not much.

A source that is putting the 90th birthday bash together for Nelson Mandela has said that they are thrilled to have the controversial singer on board. Other star performers who will be at the celebration are Stevie Wonder, Annie Lennox, Keane and Razorlight.

Some feel that Eminem’s presence will be a conflict of interest. Mandela is known for his views on being a freedom fighter and some feel that anyone who has strong views on oppressed minorities should not be attending.

In an unreleased song that somehow got leaked, Eminem expresses his dislike for dating black women. If you would like to read the lyrics to the song, check them out at The Sun.
