Across the aisle at our sister station Go 95.3, the hip-hop world is currently ablaze in the wake of Eminem’s controversial new album Kamikaze, which sees the aging rapper taking shots at…well, nearly everybody.

While Arcade Fire are yet to respond to the rapper’s salvo, Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds has waded into the fray to scold Slim Shady for his use of a homophobic slur directed at LGBTQIA-identifying rapper Tyler, The Creator. While Reynolds never officially refers to Eminem by name, timing and context clues can lead us to make only one conclusion about this series of subtweets: Dan is justifiably disappointed in Em.

– Death Cab For Cutie have released a touching tribute-cover in honor of Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison.

– An art gallery featuring photos of Arctic Monkeys working on their new album will go on display in London and Sheffield.

– Reunited and it feels so gooooood! Dave Grohl and Kris Novoselic of Nirvana recently performed together in Seattle.

– Semi-local indie rockers The Hold Steady shared two more new songs today.
