Eminem surprised fans by announcing a new album due out this fall. According to the rapper’s website, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is due out November 5th, and the first single, “Berzerk,” will be available on Tuesday.
Two trailers for the rapper’s eighth studio album were also released, featuring Dr. Dre’s Beats headphones; Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin are both serving as executive producers of The Marshall Mathers LP 2. In the 15- and 30-second clips, soundtracked by “Berzerk,” Eminem promises to “start from scratch” by bringing back the old days of hip-hop.
Eminem teased the new album and single earlier today on Twitter and a later caption at the MTV Video Music Awards read “Guess who’s REALLY back? #VMAs.” He’ll premiere “Berzerk” tonight at 10 p.m. on his SiriusXM channel, Shade 45.
