Eminem just previewed the music video for "Berzerk." Em made the reveal on ESPN during halftime of the football game between Notre Dame and Michigan. The Detroit native travelled out to Ann Arbor, Michigan to be in the studio for an interview with Brent Musberger and Kirk Herbstreit after the preview was televised. The video itself has a cameo from the track's producer, Rick Rubin, who happens to be standing barefoot. Other cameo appearances come from Kendrick Lamar and all four members of Slaughterhouse.
The interview portion was a bit awkward, with Eminem looking uncomfortable and not really revealing any information about his new album. However, he did say that Musberger would be in his "Fantasy Announcers Team" alongside Al Michaels, John Madden, and the late Pat Summerall.
"Berzerk" is the lead single off Em's upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. The album, slated for a November 5 release, is Em's eighth studio release and the sequel to his second album, which came out in 2000. Details surrounding the album are scarse, but it is certainly highly anticipated. The album is executive produced by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin.
For Rubin, this is the third major hip-hop release he has been linked with in 2013. After working extensively with Kanye West for Yeezus, Rubin made a cameo in the studio sessions for Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail. However, Rubin did not actually work with Jay on that album.
The music video for "Berzerk" will be revealed in full on Monday, September 9, at noon.
Here's a portion of the interview. Priceless.
