It seems like today is mega music video Monday, but aside from all the naked wrecking balls and interactive videos, another one definitely worth paying attention to is Eminem’s comeback hit, Berzerk. Put the rest of those clips on hold, it’s time we pay attention to this.
Here are some cliff notes on why we love this video and single so much:
- Eminem is paying homage to some classic hip hop champs like Run-D.M.C. and Beastie Boys in this video with its old school-style video format.
- Speaking of old-school videos, Berzerk features clips of riots, fights and even Billy Squier performing The Stroke. How amazing is that!
- All of the guest appearances in this video: Kendrick Lamar, Kid Rock, Rick Rubin, Slaughterhouse, Alchemist. Eminem is still a big deal and he’s got the all-star friends to prove it.
- Rick Rubin’s beard deserves its own point.
- He is not naked, swinging on a wrecking ball. Not that we’d mind if he was, but just sayin’.
Watch the video for Eminem’s Berzerk below. Trust us, it’s much, much less awkward than THIS. The Marshall Mathers LP 2 comes out on November 5th.
