EDITORS’ NOTES

Few figures in hip-hop have changed the game as fundamentally as Marshall Mathers. The Detroit emcee’s cutting wordplay and playfully sadistic wit have earned him fans beyond hip-hop’s borders and made him one of the best-selling musicians of all time. The Marshall Mathers LP 2—Eminem’s first solo endeavour since 2010’s multiplatinum Recovery—came charging out of the gate with “Berzerk”, a Rick Rubin–produced track that chopped up the heavy guitars of Billy Squier’s “The Stroke”, name-checked Public Enemy and delivered a flurry of jabs at celebrities. In short: classic Eminem. Combining forces with Rubin and long-time collaborator Dr. Dre, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is gritty, raw and an appropriately provocative sequel to Eminem’s groundbreaking 2000 release. Huge, hard-hitting singles like “Survival” and “Rap God” make it one of the artist’s most uncompromising albums to date.
