The newest track from Eminem’s upcoming “Marshall Mathers LP 2” is out and it’s pretty high-energy, possibly signaling a return of the rapper everyone remembers for pushing the envelope. Is “Berzerk” the single that will do that, though?
The song is littered with references that aren’t exactly considered cutting edge, from “Ren & Stimpy” to Kevin Federline, so one might ask if the rapper (real name Marshall Mathers) is still relevant. There’s no denying the song’s top-notch production and Mathers’ rapping skills can’t be called into question, as the words flow as easily as they ever did. The message is what’s important, though.
It will be interesting to see what else leaks from the album before it hits stores November 5. “Berzerk” is the second track to be released, after “Survival” was announced as part of the “Call of Duty: Ghosts” soundtrack.
You can listen to “Berzerk” below, but be warned it contains strong language.
