On Monday August 26, Eminem released the first single to his recently announced “MMLP2” album. Eminem set the Hip Hop world ablaze when the details of the new album were released during the MTV Video Music Awards. Slim Shady figured since he had the world going “Bezerk” he might as well release the single to the airwaves. The Marshall Mathers LP 2 will be released November 5.
The noticeable arrangements by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin could be a telling sign of the direction of the new album. “Bezerk” instantly takes you back to the sounds of Run DMC and Beastie Boys, while Eminem’s interwoven flow on the first verse is strictly 80’s. The Detroit emcee even mentions the controversial Kendrick. Relax though, it’s only a shout out.
“So sick I'm looking pale, well that's my pigment/'bout to go ham, ya bish, shout out to Kendrick"
Eminem definitely has some quotable bars in the song, and it might take you awhile to get it, but you can check Rapgenius.com for the lyrics. Unfortunately, the song references Lamar Odom, yet would you expect anything less from one of the most antagonistic emcees of our time.
A few impressive things about the track is nice bridge that seamlessly transitions into the hook. The vintage Eminem chorus fits right in line with other first singles throughout his career. We're gonna rock this house until we knock it down
"So turn the volume loud, cause it's mayhem 'til the a.m.
So baby make just like K-Fed and let yourself go, let yourself go
Say fuck it before we kick the bucket
Life's too short to not go for broke
So everybody, everybody, (go berserk) shake your body"
