Eminem has released "Berzerk," the first single from his upcoming album, and promises to "take it back to straight hip-hop / and start it from scratch."
Fittingly, the track is something of an old-school anthem.
With a simple beat and gnashing, classic samples (Beastie Boys and Billy Squier's "The Stroke"), Eminem delivers his lyrics with a familiar flow.
The hook? "Life's too short to not go for broke." Indeed.
"Berzerk" is from Eminem's upcoming eighth album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which drops November 5. Take a listen and see what you think:
