Eminem Returns to His Roots in ‘Berzerk’ Video
The vintage Slim Shady makes a return in the visual for his new song, ‘Berzerk,’ the first effort to arrive from Eminem‘s forthcoming album, ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2.’
Standing in front of a gigantic boombox, Em and Rick Rubin get up close and personal with the camera, letting viewers know that the video and the song are an in-your-face experience.
The Detroit native dons the same blond hair from his days when the original ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ debuted in 2000. He also delivers rhymes as confident and explicit as the material on that record.
“Let’s bring it back to that vintage Slim, bitch / The art of MCing mixed with da Vinci and MC Ren / And I don’t mean Stimpy’s friend, bitch / Been public enemy since you thought PE was gym, bitch,” he raps over the Rick Rubin-produced beat.
Elsewhere in the clip, Slaughterhouse kick it with their Shady Records leader, Kendrick Lamar shoves Marshall Mathers aside to take his place, the Alchemist shows the rapper some exclusive vinyl and Kid Rock dons a gold dookie chain while rapping along with Em.
Watch the lauded rhymer’s friends make cameos in the old school-inspired clip.
‘MMLP2,’ which will have Dr. Dre and Rubin serve as executive producers, arrives Nov. 5.
