Looks like Eminem has returned to the lab. The legendary rapper recently uploaded a snippet to his upcoming contribution to the Venom soundtrack, which appears to be the title track. Though we don’t have much, the up-tempo, sinister instrumental seems to mark a departure from the Revival sound, providing Eminem with plenty of room to showcase his storied flow. Amidst chants of “Venom,” Em raps “knock knock, let the devil in,” before the snippet fades. Overall, it’s an appealing start, and we’re eager to hear what the full track sounds like.
Fans will be quick to point out Eminem’s 2018 output, which has been refreshingly on point. From “Chloraseptic Remix,” to “Caterpillar,” to “Majesty,” it’s been looking like somewhat of a bounce-back year for Slim, and while the Venom soundtrack may be hit-or-miss, it’s still exciting to see his name attached. Plus, we weren’t exactly expecting new Em anytime soon, and it’s always nice to hear a legend return to the fold.
Can Eminem go four for four in 2018? Peep the snippet below and sound off.
