Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

The good folks over at Dream Work Conquer Films have dropped a little hotness on your Monday morning with this behind the scenes look into the making of Eminem's new The Dividends-produced track, "Bad Guy". The Jeff Adair-directed clip gives us a look into the creative process of newly formed Dallas songwriting super duo, The Dividends, who you may know better as Symbolyc 1 and Sarah Jaffe.

In their debut collaboration, The Dividends worked with Australia's M-Phazes to write and produce the first track of Eminem's highly anticipated, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which goes on sale tomorrow. Though many big name female vocalists (including Rihanna) were in line to record the Jaffe-penned hook, in the final album version, our very own hometown girl is singing the chorus. Take a look!

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
