The Marshall Mathers LP 2

The Expectations...

So, what are we to expect from MMLP2? Here’s a look at the track list:

1. Bad Guy
2. Parking Lot (Skit)
3. Rhyme Or Reason
4. So Much Better
6. Legacy
7. Asshole Ft. Skylar Grey
9. Rap God
10. Brainless
11. Stronger Than I Was
12. The Monster Ft. Rihanna
13. So Far…
14. Love Game Ft. Kendrick Lamar
15. Headlights Ft. Nate Ruess
16. Evil Twin

We know that, based on this set of 16 tracks, there is lots of potential here for Eminem to work with. He links up for the second time with Rihanna and for the first time with Kendrick Lamar. There does not seem to be a shortage of tracks on this project here either. We also know that Rick Rubin and Dr. Dre have teamed up as co-executive producers on MMLP2, which would lead us to believe that is a very positive thing. However, Dr. Dre WAS the executive producer on Eminem’s critically terribly received Relapse. We still have not been informed as to who is actually providing the instrumental backdrops for each song, track for track. Will Mr. Mathers employ all superstar, big name producers or will he try to rekindle the energy he once had with lesser-known Detroit-native producers he had worked with on projects such as The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP (1).

Additionally, what flows will Em spew out this go around? Shall he come with the Recovery in-your-face-stacked-vocals-all-over-the-place-chaotic approach or will he deliver the smooth-witty-not-stacked-clear-funny-demonic approach he blew up off of from his early days in the rap game? There are many questions still left to be answered before we can fully know what to expect from MMLP2 this November 5th.
