Fans were unsure if the Call of Duty: Ghosts theme would be on MMLP2, but the above list is proof that “Survival” will make an appearance.
Considering MMLP2 is a sequel to the original The Marshall Mathers LP, there really is no obvious crossover or relation to the original tracklisting. So far, other than a revisit to the original album cover, and the notice for the Dresden Street structure where his old home is located, we’re still not sure if or to what extent this album will relate to the original one.
Eminem’s first single was called “Berzerk,” which has a great oldschool hip-hop music video that’s a throwback to groups like the Beastie Boys. In a behind-the-scenes video, producer Rick Rubin talks about production on both the song and the video.
His second single, “Survival,” also recently debuted with a music video. This one contains footage from Call of Duty: Ghosts with an energetic Eminem rapping about being close to down-and-out and then surging back to the top of the game.
