Eminem - "Berzerk"


Eminem's new LP is old-school by nature - MMLP2 will be the long-awaited sequel to 2000's Marshall Mathers LP - so our first taste from it, "Berzerk," both makes sense and doesn't. Em quotes from the Beastie Boys ("kick it!") and namedrops Public Enemy over a stomping beat that, at times, gets pretty indebted to classic hip hop, and, at other times, sounds like an arena rock song. It's also a profoundly weird song, with so much going on it's sometimes hard to follow along. Still, it's worth a listen - check it out while you wait for the rest of the record, we'll keep you updated as we hear more.
