Eminem’s new song “Survival” debuted in a trailer for Call Of Duty: Ghosts, which means somebody got paid. With its compressed guitar-crunch and its chorus from Liz Rodrigues, it sounds like Em jumped on an Evanescence album cut and forcibly took it over. And this is definitely middle-aged Eminem — the guy who humorlessly yells about overcoming odds, not the one who used to cackle about mushroom overdoses and his Go-Go Gadget Dick. Still, Eminem is one of the few rappers on the face of the earth who you have to listen to — as in, when he’s rapping, you stop whatever you’re doing and make that concentrating-hard face. Because even at this late day, he can just rap. Listen below.
Call Of Duty: Ghosts is out 11/5. Shoot some people.
