EMINEM: Survival & Bezerk

Eminem_Survival

Whatuppers Wurld,

Eminem’s highly anticipated new album MMLP2 hits cybershelves Nov 5th.  The latest single off of The Marshall Mathers LP2 is called “Survival“.  The video has a Call of Duty feel (a multimedia sponsorship), where Eminem is basically declaring war on Hip-Hop and all MCs/Critics who think he’s gonna fall off the radar anytime soon.  He proclaims that all he has is this “sport”, so he will never put his crown down.  You can hear how invigorated his rap style is now, yet still matured from the Slim Shady days.  Executive Produced by Rick Rubin  (who has been crazy busy this year with Kanye’s Yeezus and Jay-Z’s Magna Carta) we think this album will definitely bring back the swagger that made The Marshall Mathers LP a classic.  SwitchFllip Bonus; we’ve included the lead single “Beserk” with a behind-the-scenes clip as well. Shout out to Rick Rubin and Marshall Mathers for giving a nod to the Rubin-produced Beastie Boys era.  Check out the new videos below and send us some feedback.

Jay Z: Holy Grail ft/Justin Timberlake

Happy Friday Earthlings,

Jay Z just dropped the official video for “Holy Grail”  featuring Justin Timberlake (who completely destroyed it at MTV’s VMA Awards this year by the way).  The video was released yesterday strictly via Facebook for the first 24 hours, giving a nod to social media’s power as a platform for music and promotions.  Directed by Anthony Mandler, the video has stunning contrasts of darks, lights and slow motion frames.  Our brother Jonas Morales was of course the Assistant Director for this one.  The two of them also won a VMA award for Best Pop song for Selena Gomez’ Come & Get it. Check Jonas “Making Moves” Morales out below with Jay Z and his big ass boss chain!  Oh, happy birthday to Jonas this weekend as well!
