Friday Face-Off: Eminem Edition

Guess which sweetastic album dropped this past Tuesday? Eminem’s album Marshall Mathers LP 2, of course! And let me tell you, that man knows how to whip up some good music. The album boasts collaborations with songstresses P!nk and Rihanna… just to name a few. And if that hasn’t gotten you excited, his music video for “Berzerk” is totally, well… Berzerk. But even though we’re embracing the new Eminem musical renditions, we’ve got to give a shout out to his old hits! So vote now and tell us whether you think Eminem is at his best with “Berzerk” or “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.”

Team Berzerk

Eminem’s “Berzerk” – Well ya gotta love a song produced by Rick Rubin! This puppy is the first single from The Marshall Mathers LP 2 album and man, did it make a bang! When the song was first released, people went totally nutso downloading it. So nutso in fact, that the song debuted at number three on the Billboard Hot 100. Word up.

Team Closet

Eminem’s “Cleanin’ Out My Closet”  – In contrast to much of Eminem’s older humorous music, this song digs deep. “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” exposes his childhood hardships and turbulent relationships – and we’ve got to respect him for it. This bad boy reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100… not to mention, it’s one of the highest-charting singles of his entire career. Guess it pays to get real now and then, eh?
