Hi-Fi Friday ~ Eminem Continues to Evolve!

Eminem

Eminem has a new album coming out this November, the 5th to be exact, titled The Marshall Mathers LP 2 and a few days ago he released the second single from it. It’s called Berzerk and it’s freakin’ awesome!

This is Eminem’s first time working with producer Rick Rubin. If you don’t know who Rick Rubin is look him up… he’s the dude who got the Beastie Boys rolling and was involved in pairing Run-D.M.C. with Aerosmith, which pretty much made rap music mainstream and revived Aerosmith!

This tune sounds different than anything I’ve ever heard from Eminem. Although I struggle with the Billy Squier sampling, I love the similarities to classic Beastie Boys tunes and those samplings.

There are inspiring lyrics in this tune as well. Ah yes, I’ve been touched by Eminem’s lyrics once again! The full lyrics are below the song but here are my favorite few lines…

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 crank the bass up like crazy and let yourself go, let yourself go
Say fuck it before we kick the bucket
Life’s too short to not go for broke

Yes.. YES… that’s some of the motivation I need right now!

By the way, did you know that the average Eminem tune has two to three times as many words as most other songs? Yep, it’s true!

Enjoy!

~ Berzerk ~

[Verse 1:]
Now this shit’s about to kick off, this party looks wack
Let’s take it back to straight hip-hop and start it from scratch
I’m ’bout to bloody this track up, everybody get back
That’s why my pen needs a pad cause my rhymes on the ra-hag
Just like I did with addiction I’m ’bout to kick it
Like a magician, critics I turn to crickets
Got ‘em still on the fence ready to pick it
But quick get impaled when I tell ‘em stick it
So sick I’m looking pale, well that’s my pigment
’bout to go ham, ya bish, shout out to Kendrick
Let’s bring it back to that vintage Slim, bitch!
The art of the 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

[Bridge:]
Take your shoes off, let your hair down and (go berserk), all night long
Grow your beard out, just weird out and (go berserk), all night long

[Hook:]
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, shake your body

[Verse 2:]
Guess it’s just the way that I’m dressed, ain’t it?
Khakis pressed, Nike shoes just being fresh laced
So I guess it ain’t
Dead after shave of cologne that made him just faint
Plus I just showed up with a coat fresher than wet paint
So if love is a chess game, check mate
But girl your body’s banging, jump me in, bang — bang, bang
Yessiree Bob I was thinking the same thing
So come get on this kids rock, baw wit da baw, bang bang
P-p-p-pow pow chicka wow wow
Catch a cab, I wanna go down, br-bow-bow
Slow it down, throw in the towel, t-t-towel towel
Dumb it down, I don’t know how, how, how, how
At least I know that I don’t know
Question is are you bozos smart enough to feel stupid
Hope so, now ho…

[Bridge:]

[Hook:]
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 crank the bass up like crazy 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, get your vials

[Scratches:]

[Verse 3:]
They say that love is powerful as cough syrup and Styrofoam
All I know is I fell asleep and woke up in that Monte Carlo
With the ugly Kardashian
Lamar, oh sorry yo, we done both set the bar low
Bars hard, drugs hard thought that’s the past
But I done did enough codeine to knock Future into tomorrow
And girl I ain’t got no money to borrow
But I am tryin’ to find a way to get you alone, car note!
Oh, Marshall Mathers shouldn’t everybody know
Get the bar soap lathered, came ghost and called Arthur’s Cargo’s
Girl you’re fixin’ to get your heart broke, don’t be absurd man
You bird brained baby I ain’t called anybody baby since Birdman
Unless you’re a swallow
Word, w-word man you heard, but don’t be discouraged girl
This is your jam, unless you got toe jam

[Bridge:] + [Hook:]
