Eminem Drops New Track 'Rap God': Prepare For Some Immodest Double Time [Listen]

Eminem has dropped the latest track from his upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which will be out in November. 'Rap God' follows earlier singles 'Berzerk' and 'Survival.' The new six-minute track picks up the fury and pace, name-checking peers over a window-wiper synth. Slim Shady raps at break-neck double time pace, taking no prisoners.

The new album's name harks back to Eminem's 2000 classic record, The Marshall Mathers LP, and the artwork certainly recalls that of Eminem's earlier life, featuring an image of his Detroit childhood home.

MMPL2 will see Eminem invite the talents of the likes of Rapper Kendrick Lamar, singer-songwriter Skylar Grey, Rihanna and Nate Ruess, the lead singer of FUN. Alongside this glittering list of collaborators lies an even more enviable set of producers: Rick Rubin, Dr Dre and DJ Premier have all worked some of their magic on the returning rapper's record.

Those who follow Rihanna and Twitter will note that one of her more cryptic tweets from a few weeks back has been solved. The R&B star tweeted "Recorded a #monster hook for one of my favourite artists! And that's all I can give you." which whipped her fans into a confused frenzy as they tried to guess who the mystery collaborator could be. Looking at the MMLP2 tracklist now, via HitFix, we can see that there is a track entitled 'Monster' which is almost sure to feature the distinctive vocal stylings of Ms. Fenty.

Eminem Retains The Power To Make Your Head Spin With Clever & Fast Lyrics.

Eminem's lyrics are as incisive and dizzyingly rapid as ever but it seems that the 40 year-old rap star has toned down some of the more humorous lyrics that made him famous, not to mention any added fart sound effects. Nevertheless, he still manages to pull of the same witty, intelligent and sometimes "BUURN" lyrics without losing any of his music's distinctive fingerprint.
