After thrilling fans with a new collaboration with Rihanna, “The Monster,” Eminem has revealed “Love Game,” the latest song from his upcoming full-length, Marshall Mathers LP 2. Check out the graphic track below, via DDotOmen.
“Love Game” finds the two superstar rappers trading verses about ex-girlfriends over a track built out of samples from the 1965 song “Game of Love,” by Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders. Both Eminem and Lamar go in hard on women who’ve wronged them in the past, with Em attacking a former fiancée for hooking up with everyone from Kanye West to Lebron James to disgraced former mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick.
Earlier this summer, Lamar said he had yet to work with Slim Shady, despite a widely circulated photo showing the two of them in a recording studio together.
“I wish,” Lamar said during a radio interview. “We haven’t really gotten a chance to build in the studio like that. I basically just met him for a second. But if I get that call, I’m definitely running.”
The two have obviously remedied the situation, with “Love Game” as the evidence. Kendrick Lamar and Eminem will continue to build on their budding partnership with an upcoming joint tour of Australia that will also feature J. Cole.
