Riff: Eminem – “Berzerk”

Aug 27, 2013

Let’s bring it back to that vintage Slim, bitch/The art of MCing mixed with Da Vinci and MC Ren/And I don’t mean Stimpy’s friend, bitch/Been Public Enemy since you thought PE was gym bitch

from Berzerk lyrics by Eminem

After all these years Eminem is still wrestling with rage, conjuring up the spirits of Run DMC, Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys to fuel yet another one of his diatribes. But what else is there? Anger is his game, and with Miley Cyrus still twerkin’ around it’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
