Eminem Partners With GameStop &

Fans who purchase "Call of Duty: Ghosts" at GameStop will be able to download a special edition of Eminem's "The Marshall Mathers LP 2."

In August, Eminem debuted a new song, "Survival," in a trailer for the video game Call of Duty: Ghosts. Now, it has been announced that purchases of Call of Duty: Ghosts made at GameStop on November 5, when the game is released, will come with a code that allows fans to download a special edition of Eminem's new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, also set to be released on November 5.

The special edition of the project will include "Survival." Eminem spoke about the importance of the song to the video game. 

"The energy and intensity of 'Survival' really matches 'Call of Duty: Ghosts'," Eminem said in a press release, as per Billboard. "I'm excited to continue to be a part of the franchise."

Tim Ellis, CMO of Activision Publishing, Inc., spoke about the partnership. 

"'Call of Duty' is the ultimate adrenaline rush," said Ellis in a press release. "It’s the intensity and heart-pounding excitement you feel as the action unfolds. And Eminem embodies this same spirit and captures this in his music. The breadth of this program takes our partnership to a new level and will continue to unfold in the months to come. It’s going to be a massive day in entertainment with the launch of Call of Duty: Ghosts and [TheMarshall Mathers LP 2 both hitting on November 5th."

    Gotta love all the whinging I am reading on here. Eminems now a 'sell out' and all this kind of woft. Because no one on here likes money and they would rather be rapping with friends in a basement then selling platinum records like Eminem does, and will continue to do.. while your best efforts don't even nearly reach the credibility of Eminem's worst songs. Basically, no matter what Eminem does right now people will complain. Partner with Call of Duty? people complain... Dont partner with anyone? people will say Eminem hasn't found a way to connect to new fans and stay relevent... Release MMLP2, people complain that he seems to be making a contrived effort to relive his youth... Release Recovery, people complain that he is strayed too far from what got him here in the first place. Basically, this is the old thing... it happened to Michael Jackson, and it is happening now to Eminem.. had 2 pac lived a bit longer, it would have happened to him too... where everyone, fans, the media.. builds them up... and then at some point they revel in the fall from grace. Michael Jackson could never release anything that eclipsed Thriller (although he released many classics)... Eminem could never eclipse the original MMLP... and 2 pac, had he lived to now (43 years of age).. I HIGHLY DOUBT would have continued to make good records well into his late 30's and 40's. Rappers have an originality use by date I believe.. and I think GENERALLY it lasts 3-4 albums before they can only rehash what they have already said and they can no longer surprise you. It has happened with Eminem.. and for the 2pac dickriders.. it would have happened to him too! So basically, what do you really want of Eminem? You want him to retire just so your own jealousy issues are rewarded and so you can tell everyone "I told you so?"... Or do you want him to continue so every step of the way you can badger on about how far eminem has apparently fallen? Bezerk is no classic track... But it is no better or worse then Just lose it, Real Slim SHady, Hi my name is.. or any of the less then serious songs he usually leads with. Eminem is in a no win situation when it comes to public opinion, but if he wants to keep doing it... FINE BY ME... and if theres only a couple of good new tracks on the next album, its a couple of tracks that I didnt have before.
    • wow dude
      couldnt have said it better myself..ppl hate him so much because he is the highest selling rapper of all time and how far and ridiculous he has come as the white boy underdog PLAIN AND SIMPLE

    • JarradHurley

    • ETK

    The truth about Eminem: He hates gay people but did a song with Elton John He hates pop music and dissed Britney Spears and Nysync but did songs with pop artists Rihanna and Pink! The whole slim shady image was created to sell records. Ask Interscope records. To HHDX dont delete my post! This are facts!
    • Josh
      1. He did that so gay activist would stop bitching 2.He did that because people said he was too old to do dark music 3.He created that persona long before his first album.

      the truth about gucci mane 1. he cant sell records or make a hit to save his life 2. he punches women in the face on stage and throws them out of his moving car 3. hes high on lean everyday killing the few braincells he has left
    • Chris Etrata
      truth about gucci 4. hes burning bridges with whatever friends he has left.
    • Spliffst4rr
      You realize that Em and Elton John are like really good friends right? Elton was one of the people who helped Eminem through his drug addiction.
    • LEVITIKUZ
      1. Eminem and Elton are good friends. Elton helped Em get sober. Also Em gave Elton so type of dildo for his wedding gift. 2. P!nk isn't pop. P!nk is dope man. i don't get the hate for her. She is to pop what Em is to hip-hop. Point for RIhanna. 3. Wrong again.

    To the Eminem fans who say niggas is scared to feature him on songs. Bad vs Evil Royce was pretty much bodying Em on every song. Keep it real you have to be a big fan to not realize how much this dude fell off. And if this next album sounds like the crap he has been producing himself its gonna be straight trash.
    • JarradHurley
      Royce bodied Eminem on every track did he? wow... you and royce would be the only 2 people on the planet who think that way
    • Andr
      Royce bodies Em most of the time lol
  • Rozay
    This white boy used to be good, now all this nigga release is pop shit. Another album with Bruno Mars, Pink and Rihannas comin and of course all you white boys will snatch it up and say its the best thing ever cuz we all know only white boys buy his albums. Bawse!!!!!!!!

      who the fuck you think buys rick ross albums? not a million people thats for sure
    • JarradHurley
      Little newsflash for you mate. White people are the biggest buyers of hip hop of any demographic.. and have been ever since the early 90's. So to say "white boys will buy this shit".. is true... but they are also the ones buying everything else.

    Em give it up. Your new music is okay but you just an average mc. You aint no Pac, Nas, Big L, Dmx or Big Boi.
    • smh
      And why would Eminem listen to some Anonymous poster on the web?
    • ETK
      funny how this mo'fucker says that when DMX's comeback album hasn't even made a dent in stores. An average Eminem still shits on most of the rap game
    • ^
      sales dont mean shit, faggot
    • ETK
      still means nobody gives a fuck bout DMX anymore, faggot.
    • JarradHurley
      The same guy who says "Sales dont mean shit" will be the same guy gloating if MMLP2 doesnt sell well!
  • David Bunz
    Smart business move, major record labels are dying and artists got to stay making money any way possible. That being said, it shouldn't effect the music. But for me as a fan, his music has definitely been less refined since 2010, pretty hit and miss. Still anxious to hear it though
  • d
    Can Em's selling out become anymore evident? Jeez making music for the cod crowd, sure to be great.
  • YOU@h0R_
    If kendrick lamar dropped his 2nd lp and partnered with battlefield 4 that would shit on all of eminems carrer and his partnership with activision/treyarch. I wonder if any or atleast one of eminems long time fans accepted the fact that he's fallen off, just cause he's em don't mean you gotta ride on his dick...
    • jick
      That would not happen, Kendrick is signed to Aftermath.
    • GOD
      Oh, speaking of Kendrick, isn't he partnering with Kanye so he can actually do a big Show? Lol he's going place, can't even sell out a small Venue but hey, you're right he'll shit all over Eminem and his deal.
