The real Slim Shady is back. Eminem announced his new album Marshall Mathers LP 2 executive produced by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. That’s right, we were right!
On November 5th, Eminem will release the followup to his highest selling and critically acclaimed album to date, The Marshall Mathers LP. During commercial breaks, two Beats By Dre commercials featuring Em‘s upcoming MMLP 2 single “Berzerk” were debuted. The trailers feature Marshall back in rare form, sporting his blonde hair we all know and love, and rocking out Beastie Boys style in front of the cameras. The full single won’t be available until Tuesday.
“Berzerk” is certainly sounding different than anything we’ve heard from Eminem as of late. With Marshall bringing back the Marshall Mathers LP title, let’s hope he delivers. The commercials sure as hell sell me on the project…and a new pair of Beats By Dre’s. Nothing but signs of great things to come.
EMINEM x DR. DRE x RICK RUBIN? Can. Not. Wait.
