Eminem's 'Berzerk' Marks A Bold Comeback For Rapper (AUDIO)

After being teased via a Beats by Dre commercial that debuted during Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, Eminem dropped "Berzerk," the lead single off his forthcoming "MMLP2." Take a listen below and let us know what you think of Slim Shady's comeback anthem -- which sounds like the Shady you used to know and love -- below.

Rick Rubin produced the single, and given his trailblazing work with the Beastie Boys, it's not that surprising to hear overtones of the Beasties on "Berzerk." For those keeping track, the sample that's used is Billy Squier's "The Stroke."

Eminem seemingly calls Khloe Kardashian ugly on the track -- "Woke up in that Monte Carlo, with that ugly Kardashian Lamar O / Sorry, yo we done both set the bar low." That's unfortunate timing, given some seriously troubling allegations that have plagued the couple in recent days.
