Another track from Eminem’s Relapse has hit the web (RapRadar got the world premiere), and it’s a whole lot darker in sound and content than “We Made You.” My take after a couple of quick spins: This is, more or less, the Eminem I’ve been waiting for. Yes, he’s still rapping in a silly accent for some reason, and he takes an obvious potshot at Kim Kardashian’s anatomy again, but I don’t even care. Do you hear the way he’s flowing? “I remember the first time I dismembered a family member, December I think it was…” Nobody finds poetry in violence and perviness like Marshall. He’s a majorly offensive verbal acrobat, the world’s most eloquent sociopath.
Give “3 A.M.” a listen below (NSFW lyrics, of course), then weigh in. What do you think of Eminem’s latest?
