UPDATE #4: Eminem's "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" is available for streaming on iTunes Radio.

Seconds ago, during tonight's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Beats By Dre released a commercial for Eminem's seventh studio album. Billed as MMLP2 in the brief commercial, the acoronym is believed to suggest Marshall Mathers LP 2, a sequel to Em's heralded sophomore major label album from 2000. According to the commercial MMLP2 will release on November 5, 2013.

Moreover, the commercial indicated that the effort would be executive produced by longtime mentor and Aftermath Entertainment backer Dr. Dre, as well as Def Jam Records co-founder and acclaimed producer Rick Rubin. Dre has executive produced Em's solo albums in the past, most recently 2010's Recovery.

For Rubin, this is the latest in a series of high-profile Hip Hop albums in 2013, beginning with a last minute involvement with Kanye West's Yeezus in June, Rubin was also on hand to work with Jay-Z on Magna Carta Holy Grail less than one month later.

2013 has been a major return to Hip Hop for Rubin, who produced seminal hits for the genre in the 1980s and early 1990s, ranging between LL Cool J and Run-DMC to Geto Boys. This will be his first work with Eminem.

On 2000's diamond-certified Marshall Mathers LP, Dr. Dre produced six of 19 songs, largely co-productions with Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Mel-Man.

Eminem's first album in over three years, follows 14 months of promotion. This will be Em's seventh album with Dre's Aftermath label.

Eminem.com reports that "Berzerk," a single from MMLP2, will release on Tuesday (August 27). A snippet is available to listen to now.

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

    This is one of his best albums, yeah everyone is better when they first come out, all the hype, it's something new, etc. BUT if he came out with an album with wordplay and lyricism like this 10 years ago, yall would be callin it a classic. THINK ABOUT THAT.

    I guess Em gets a pass for making a pop album but I've seen every other artist who does the same get ripped to shreds on this sight. I won't even say I wonder why...I think we all know what.....SMH

    His worldplay is on another level with this one idc what anyone fuckin says. anyone who says other wise is a faggot drake and wayne fan with skinny jeans who cant understand the bars. And also can someone post examples of worldplay on sslp and mmlp? I dont see any of those albums just ryhme schemes. I mean wordplay like the stuff he uses in this lp like the tricky puns and metaphors and shit like that

    btw, i understand this album dont have LIL'Wayne type beats, but EM has always had sucky beats in his albums (Cum On Everybody?? Im Shady?? Real Slim Shady?? Square Dance??) ... plus he had to switch up his style to stay relevant ... who's really going to buy an album by a 40 year old rapping about raping his mother?? ... just saying ...
  • Loon
    It's a good album in my opinion ... EVERY album Eminem has released since his first, everyone has said it sucked ... i remember when Slim Shady LP came out & all these rap websites like Hiphop Reviews, Sohh.com all gave it bad ratings ... NOW everyone says its a classic ... same with Marshall Mathers LP ... he got criticized for changing his style & his voice ... now that too is a classic ... in a couple years, people are going to look back at this album & say it ranks up there with his best ... just my opinion ... it's a good album & better then everything else out there ..

      Co-Sign. I also want to add including the Deluxe edition, this album is EM's best since The Eminem Show. It tops his last 3 albums for me, and has a lot of replay value. Aside from a few tracks this album is dope and the great songs really compensate for the few bad ones. People will always have something to complain about, but this is seriously the closest he will get to the old slim, with sounds like "Brainless, "So Much Better" and "Baby" which were produced by Eminem really takes us back to the Eminem Show era, these songs really sound alike and are dope. This album pretty much has all of his styles and covers his whole body of work.
    6/10..EM can still spit but most of the beats are sub-par.

    ATTENTION: White people, Latin or Hispanic or whoever you call yourselves nowadays, and finally Asians. When you look at the definition of a Black man or Black person you look at me what defines us is hard work and determination me being 23 years old, no kids, never been on drugs, 2 jobs, me finally doing what I want to do you look at me. And stop thinking that your better than my people because your not Black is and forever will be beautiful remember that. I love my people we are the only people who have each other's back during hard times that why I have African tattoo because I'm prideful and very proud to be be black and finally I am going to get the African Continent tattooed on my chest I love where I came from and where my people are going. To be a Black person living in America you have to work twice as hard and I have done that. Mow you know my true colors I'm racist. EVER BLACK PERSON POST THIS TO EVERY SITE YOU KNOW PLEASE THIS IS NOT SPAM I AM SERIOUS IT IS TIME FOR OUR PEOPLE TO BECOME BETTER WE ARE BETTER THAN THE WHITE RACE WAY BETTER BELIEVE THAT IF YOU WANT TO STOP THE VIOLENCE AND PROTECT THE BLACK RACE AND IF YOU LOVE THE BLACK AND YOU CARE ABOUT THE NEXT GENERATION OF BLACK KIDS YOU WOULD POST THIS I'm BEGGING PLEASE.
