Eminem New Album 2013 Release Date & Song List: New Track 'Love Game' feat. Kendrick Lamar Leaks [LISTEN]
Eminem's track "Love Game," a Kendrick Lamar-assisted selection from his upcoming album The Marshall Mathers LP 2," is leaked online on Wednesday, October 30.
This is the first collaboration between the Detroit rapper and the Compton rapper, and they talk about love and affection gone wrong on the their complex and sexually explicit track, which is sampled from Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders' 1965 record, "Game of Love." It starts off with Eminem coming home to find his significant other cheating on him.
"Something is burning I can't figure out what / It's either lust or a cloud of dust," Eminem rhymes starting in the first verse. "Left my girl in the house alone / Is that my soon to be spouse's moan/ And the further I walk, the louder," the rapper continues rapping while building sex noises play under the track.
Eminem continues his verse by paying homage to several rappers. "Used to be my fiancée / 'Til you sucked on Wayne, Andre and Kanye / LeBron, Akon, Jay, Lil Jon, Raekwon, Ma$e / Polow Da Don, Drake, Dante Ross, James Conway, Kwame," Eminem raps in a similar fashion to Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse, calling out the girl who cheated on him.
"She doesn't love me," Kendrick Lamar then sings on the chorus. "No, she don't love me no more / She hates my company, yeah she don't love me no more."
Soon after, Lamar continues by rapping on his verse, "I'm a sucker for love. You're a sucker for dick." K-Dot's verse references Sherane, a notorious girl that was introduced to his major label debut, "good kid, m.A.A.d. city" album.
"You know I want you bad as a Benjamin, I'm delirious / I want you bad as the head shattered on George Zimmerman," he raps in a choked-up voice, making parallels between his lust and want for street justice following the controversial Trayvon Martin murder.
"I have infinite hate in my blood, it's mainly because of the game of [love]," Eminem ends the track by expressing his struggles with love.
Eminem's forthcoming eighth studio album "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" is set for a release on November 5.
