This track was probably one of the most anticipated collabs this year! Here's Eminem's "Love Game" featuring Kendrick Lamar.

Eminem has mostly sputtered on his quest to be as lyrically and commercially dominant as he was in the late ‘90s and early aughts. He’s battled personal demons and experimented with both a Swedish accent (Relapse) and Stadium Rock/Screamo (Recovery). He largely avoided both on MMLP2, but fans were mostly victims of our own falsely created high expectations by expecting a sequel to a classic album. Em’s “continuation” of the Marshall Mathers LP contained some of his best emceeing in nearly a decade with “Rap God.” But it also contained some flotsam in the form of Zombie retreads and more rape and homophobic references than a guy in his 40s should be comfortable making.
