New Album Will Address "Victorian Nightmare" of Picturesque City in Wake of Recent Tragedies

"Death and hate in the 118."

Once again, Coronado is in the news in a story about horrific violent crime, this time a multiple murder-suicide that claimed the lives of four young people on New Year's Day. And once again, the mainstream media is all, "Violence has rocked this sleepy, affluent San Diego community."

Speaking exclusively to SD on the QT, rap superstar Eminem today revealed that this "bullshit mock-shock dichotomy" is what led him to record Tha 118, his album about the dark, gritty underbelly of this "so-called sleepy, affluent community." (The album's title is taken from Coronado's ZIP code, 92118).

"Coronado is a Victorian nightmare, Jekyll and Hyde gone citywide," said Eminem. "They can't even comprehend the nightmare breaking out around them, because they've bought their own myth. But from Mexican safe houses on the Silver Strand to Rebecca Zahau to the Top Gun murders, the lie is being exposed more and more each day. My job as an artist is to tell the truth, and that's what I'm doing on Tha 118."

Eminem then played the first track, entitled "Sleepy," for SD on the QT. It appeared to be a blistering assault on the media's portrayal of America's new hotbed of violence, beginning with a personal address to NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. We jotted down a few lyrics as best we could, and are happy to share them with you, our readers:

Williams sayin' that it's sleepy/Like a dirt nap is sleepy?/Like a bitch-slap neck-snap pop-cap is sleepy?/Hey Brian, four words: f--k you, that's creepy.

Wiggers ask me why I rap/In my Coronado yachting cap/But they ain't never been/They ain't never seen/When the Sinaloa kidnap

Down at the Del, what they sell?/Filming Some Like it Hot?/But they don't wanna get shot/Ain't '54 no more/Punk-ass famewhore/Now we play GTA for real in the hot spot.

Tha 118 is slated for release on May 25.

"It ain't '54 no more/Punk-ass famewhore."

I guess M&M is in town. Only problem with his report is that Some Like it Hot, was shot here in '58.

I cant wait for May 25th but let's be honest obviously Eminem does not know Coronado at all. This was not a Coronado issue this was a Navy issue, that's why 3 murders made history for Coronado. What happened was tragic but in no way do I feel it reflects coronado in the slightest degree, We know our community, respect it and for the most part respect one another. With that said, again, I cant wait for his new album to be released! haha

This is confirmed fake by Ems manager Paul Rosenberg.

Fake or not, I got my own rap. Check it out, Reader crackers!

When that "suicide" went down in the rich part of town; I be asking who here is the real clown? Well that Sheriff Gore knows how to fake a hit, but only after getting his hands on a whole lotta greenback sh-t!

Now Rebecca be lying in her grave and mad as hell about the lies; those dirty cops don't even care how her family cries. But there is a curse put on Coronado & bad karma is all around. If you like my rap tune, you got good taste in sounds!
