In normal Eminem-esque behavior, the Detroit rapper delivers a hard-hitting, in-your-face single that makes us remember why we loved him in the first place.
Forty year-old Marshall Mathers aka Eminem (aka Slim Shady for those who can remember that far back), released the video for his newest single “Berzerk.”
The Beastie Boys-inspired video featured cameos from record producer/former co-president of Columbia Records Rick Rubin, hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar and country musician Kid Rock.
The video is all over the place with hyper-active Em bouncing around between YouTube clips, 1990s-esque graphics and enormous speaker boxes. The video altogether looks fun and a bit chaotic, but what else is to be expected from “The Real Slim Shady?”
In a (painfully awkward) interview on ESPN during the recent Michigan – Notre Dame football game, Eminem tells interviewers that his new album “The Marshalls Mathers LP 2” will be a “revisit” to the Slim Shady period in his music career.
The album is expected to release in late November. The Marshall Mathers LP was only one of Eminem’s awarding winning albums that solidified the rapper as a force to be reckoned with in the hip-hop community. Hopefully this new album has the same spirit and lyric intensity as the first LP.
If the album is anything like “Berzerk,” we have nothing to worry about.
