LA Times: Eminem Swipes at Bush

Eminem Swipes at Bush: "Slim Shady is becoming Citizen Eminem.

Rapper Eminem, who made headlines with the gleefully profane alias Slim Shady, has taken his deepest plunge yet into the political world with 'Mosh,' a new song that, along with its music video, slams President Bush and calls on young America to mobilize against the administration.

The video premiered Monday on the Guerrilla News Network website and was directed by Ian Inaba, a Berkeley-based contributor to the website. It hit MTV on Tuesday, and as of Wednesday afternoon the channel's website listed it as No. 1 on its chart of hot videos.

"Mosh" is Eminem's second single for his upcoming album, "Encore," and follows "Lose It," another music video that grabbed attention with its shots at Michael Jackson. "Encore" arrives in stores Nov. 16.
