that’s why they call him slim shady. he’s back, he’s back…

Well it’s about time! The Clown Prince of Hip-Hop aka Eminem aka Slim Shady aka Marshall Mathers has come back to the land of the living. It’s been a while since we last heard our favourite anti-hero. Encore was a decent record but was still missing the fire and brimstone of the two records that introduced the world to the diabolical genius that is Eminem, the Slim Shady LP and the Marshall Mathers LP. So word is, the new record entitled Relapse will finally become a reality. No set release date as yet but the grapevine says it will be sometime in the spring. Production chores will be handled by Dr. Dre for the most part which should tell us that the beats will be off the chain and heads will be bopping. 

The first taste of the record comes in the form of Crack A Bottle. This one is for the guys and gals with the souped-up system with the huge speakers in the trunk. This is a track that will have your head ringing from the opening thump. It begins with Mr. Shady letting us know that he is indeed back and brought a couple of friends along: Dr. Dre and….ugh…50 Cent. Check it out and drop a line to kiss it or diss it. My personal opinion? It’s a nice enough track but when you consider Em’s penchant for releasing strong lead-off singles, Bottle is a bit of a let-down. 50 Cent appearing on it doesn’t help.
