Eminem returns to his roots in a song from his soon-to-be-released album Relapse—and promptly trips over them.
The hip-hop hellraiser's track, Bagpipes From Baghdad, has been leaked on to the internet ahead of its scheduled release. It features the rapper delivering an expletive-flecked tirade in what appears to be the least convincing attempt at a Scottish accent since Mel Gibson cracked open a tub of blue face paint.
Eminem was born in Missouri in 1974, but his maternal great-grandmother, Ailsa McAllister, came from Edinburgh.
In 2003, his grandmother, Betty Kresin, said: "I took great pains to let him know of his ancestry and how he should be proud to be Scottish." [Link]
