The Marshall Mathers LP 2 release week promotional push continues. Earlier in the week Eminem stopped by Sway’s SiriusXM show for a revealing glimpse into his creative process, but last night he made a rare appearance on BET’s The Breakroom with the always game Slaughterhouse and he was all about the rhymes.
Slaughterhouse and Eminem are obviously pretty familiar with the cypher format, and they showed off their skills with a series of blistering verses packed with punchlines and sly allusions. While the Slaughterhouse guys all delivered their verses over an instrumental being spun by Just Blaze, Eminem went without a beat. “Role model?” he asked at the start of his verse. “I rode a model down a hill over broke bottles and Coke products.”
He went on to drop lines about Madonna, McDonalds, Mother Teresa and a joke about “booing Bono at Bonaroo.” He also has a few choice words for his detractors who might be expecting a sequel to Recovery. Watch the full clip above.
