Listen: Eminem—”Berzerk”

Ever since the release of “Survival” by Eminem a couple weeks back, fans have been curious to know what the legendary Detroit rapper has in-store for the future. Apparently, it’s the follow-up to his Marshall Mathers LP which is titled, you guessed it, Marshall Mathers LP 2 or MMLP2. “Berzerk” is the first single from the upcoming album, which, interestingly enough, may provide some insight into the way Eminem fans are going to react to it once they hear it—and not necessarily in a good way. Although the new project is to be executive produced by Dr. Dre and the all-too-popular Rick Rubin, its sounds more as if the Beastie Boys sans MCA were behind the mixing boards. The beat has a clear rock sound to it and although Eminem can’t be faulted for his raps which he carries fairly well, as always, it’s difficult to decipher exactly who he’s trying to appeal to or what statement he’s trying to make. Perhaps he’s consciously trying to pay respect to the first white rappers who opened the doors for aspiring artists such as Eminem or maybe it’s something else altogether. Whatever it may be, below is “Berzerk” for your listening pleasure.
