Berzerk should have won Best Rap Solo Performance!

IDoHipHop wants to know do you Love Shady and do you love the Beastie Boys tribute in this classic old school hip hop rendition with a new school feel. Ever since ” The Monster” hit number one, it has proved that Eminem is unstoppable even at his age he is killing the charts. “Berzerk” is the first single from Eminem’s eighth studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Written by both Em and Rick Rubin. You will here samples from the legendary hip hop group Beastie Boys. Em opens up the song with…

[Verse 1]
Now this shit’s about to kick off, this party looks wack
Let’s take it back to straight hip-hop and start it from scratch
I’m ’bout to bloody this track up, everybody get back
That’s why my pen needs a pad cause my rhymes on the ra-ag
Just like I did with addiction I’m ’bout to kick it
Like a magician, critics I turn to crickets
Got ’em still on the fence whether to picket
But quick to get it impaled when I tell ’em stick it
So sick I’m looking pale, wait that’s my pigment
Bout to go ham, ya bish, shout out to Kendrick
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

On this first verse Eminem guides us through a bit of much needed  hip hop history. His flow and delivery in the first verse is paying homage to the Beastie Boys and MCA (RIP). Towards the end you see Em recognize Kendrick Lemar as bringing Hip Hop back.
