Released: 9th September 2013.
Eminem is the most successful rap artist of the last fifteen years and has been one of the biggest sellers worldwide in that timeframe. After several multi-platinum albums and critically acclaimed singles, he celebrates his comeback following 2010's critically acclaimed 'Recovery'.
"Berzerk" is the first single from his new album 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' which is slated for release this November. The song sounds very fresh and different from his previous songs. It's produced by the great Rick Rubin and if you listen carefully to it, you will note similarities to songs from Run-D.M.C. and Beastie Boys.
Strong guitar riffs and a prominent, hard-rock beat make Eminem sound very innovative and fresh. At select moments, the song is reminiscent of Jay-Z's "99 Problems" but the final product is a uniquely Marshall Mathers event, something only the King himself could pull off.
The lead-off single from Eminem's eighth studio album, the sequel to the enormously successful 'The Marshall Mathers LP', 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', "Berzerk" samples 80's rock anthems "The Stroke", "New Style", and "Fight For Your Right". The rock elements coupled with Eminem's inimitable flow, catchy hook, and controversial-as-ever lyrics, which include derogatory shout-outs to Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian (the "ugly Kardashian"), and Kevin Federline, make for an exciting, undeniably outstanding track that, with its bizarre, unstructured production shouldn't work, but somehow does.
