Eminem's new album was supposedly arriving after Memorial Day, and now that the holiday has come and gone, new music has surfaced from the Detroit rapper. "Symphony in H" is a short burst of ferocious bars from Eminem, a no-nonsense track devoid of hooks and packed with mean lyricism. "Feel an urge to put you over the line and chop you with a razor blade / Yo wait, I'm an a-hole," Eminem raps. "Devil with a halo / Hell yeah I'd nail J.Lo to the railroad."

"Symphony in H" will be on DJ Tony Touch's upcoming July 9th mixtape Piecemaker 3: The Return of the 50 MCs, also featuring RZA, Method Man, Redman, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Action Bronson and more. There's no word whether the track will appear on Eminem's upcoming album, which is expected this year. Chris Rock fueled rumors of a collaboration with the rapper last month after posting a picture of himself at Eminem's studio on Twitter.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
