Eminem officially announced that Marshall Mathers LP 2 will come out on Nov. 5. While everyone was having fun watching the MTV Video Music Awards, this big news was revealed during one of the commercial breaks. You can watch the trailer for Eminem's new album below.
Eminem also announced that the first single from the record will be called "Berzerk." The track will hit iTunes this Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. ET. The rapper released a trailer for this song, which includes the lyrics: "Take your shoes off, let your hair down, go berzerk all night long/We're gonna rock this house until we knock it down, so turn the volume loud." Check out a preview of "Berzerk" by Eminem below.
Not much is known about this new album, though it is produced by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin. Rubin is also the primary producer for the aforementioned "Berzerk" by Eminem.
Another song on Marshall Mathers LP 2, entitled "Survival," was recently featured in the trailer for the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. That tune features Liz Rodrigues of The New Royales and includes the lyrics: "Cause I'mma fight 'til I die or win, Biting the dust it'll just make me angrier / wait, let me remind you of what got me this far, picture me quitting / Now draw a circle around it and put a line through it, slut, It's survival of what?"
"Uh, I can't really say," Rock said in May. "Hey, hey, I was on the Kanye [West] record; maybe I'm on the Eminem record. You never know." Rock did, in fact, have a cameo on West's song "Blame Game," though Rock simply did a comedy skit rather than sing or rap.
