CHICAGO – “I couldn”t think of a better motherf*cking place to ‘Relapse,”” Eminem told Lollapalooza attendees after a brief costume change into a thick black hoodie, and invoking the name of his 2009 full-length. “Chicago, can I relapse with you tonight?”
People cheered but then the rapper insisted, “I”m not joking. I”m gonna take a drink for you.” Em”s hype-man Mr. Porter kinda started reeling around his recovering addict and cohort, like, naw man you ain”t gonna do it. Out came a handle of what looked like vodka from the wings. A couple of boos interlaced the noise. Eminem very magnificently put the bottle to his lips, and drank for four seconds.
