Ok, I’m actually geeked now for Shady XV.
I got the impression that we would see the standard greatest hits album with 1 or 2 new tracks — one being the “Guts Over Fear” single with Sia. But the tracklist is revealed today and shows that we’re in store for an entire disc of new music!
The “sooner or later” Eminem x Big Sean collab turns out it’s an entire Detroit collab slated for Disc X. “Detroit vs. Everybody”, even giving some shine to the breakout artist of the last couple months, Dej Loaf. I hope this inspires a Chicago version of this: Kanye, Lupe, Common, Twista, and some of the young stars…
But I digress… It really is good to see that many new Eminem tracks, a few of which are pure solo cuts. Plus, I spot another Skylar Grey feature which is always a good thing. And finally… lend some of your attention to Disc V — a demo version of “Lose Yourself”. Considering that’s probably my answer for “You can only listen to 1 song the rest of your life, what is it?”, I’m excited to hear “Lose Yourself” at its early stages. We’re less than a month away — November 24th.
